A Tiger Rises From His Cave In The New Trailer For THE TIGER MASK

After releasing a teaser earlier this past summer, new trailer recently made its way online for the upcoming live action masked wrestling thriller, The Tiger Mask, just over a month away from its world premiere at the American Film Market on November 1, 2013. The film is a  live action adaptation of the classic manga and anime of the late 1960's and early 70's, and the subsequent early 1980's, from creators, writer Ikki Kajiwara and artist Naoki Tsuji, with shortfilm veteran Ken Ochiai making his directorial debut.

Based on a screenplay also penned by Ochiai along with Hidehiro Ito, Itaru Era and Micael. W. Schock, The Tiger Mask is already making its way through the 2013 film festival circuit, having had its international premiere the Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival in July, followed by its North American Premiere in August at the Fantasia International Film Festival. The movie stars Eiji Wentz, Sho Aikawa and Natsuna, and is scheduled for a domestic Japanese release sometime in November.

SYNOPSIS:

When Naoto Date hears of the orphanage's desperate financial situation, he donates all of his earnings, including the portion that is supposed to go to Tiger Cave.
