On January 10th, Arashi’s Ninomiya Kazunari, Matsuyama Kenichi, and Hongo Kanata attended a special “GANTZ” event at Roppongi Hills. During the event, it was announced that both Ninomiya and Matsuyama will take part in “stage greetings” for the premiere events in both Japan and the U.S. for January 20th.
Ninomiya and Matsuyama will appear for the “stage greeting” at a Roppongi theatre on the morning of the 20th, and immediately afterwards, they’ll fly to Los Angeles for the “stage greeting” at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. The L.A. premiere is considered to be the official world premiere, so Ninomiya and Matsuyama’s audience greet will be relay-broadcasted live to 334 theatres across the States.
The first half of “GANTZ” will be released on January 29th, and the last half will be revealed on April 23rd.
