I'm not a big Kenshin fan or live action adaptation fan, but this movie is looking pretty good.

Live-Action Rurouni Kenshin's Theme Performed by ONE OK ROCK

posted on 2012-05-29 03:45 EDT

Japanese rock band wrote "The Beginning" for August 25 film

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Japanese rock band ONE OK ROCK announced on Tuesday that it is contributing its new song "The Beginning" as the theme song for the live-action Rurouni Kenshin film. According to the film's website, ONE OK ROCK wrote the song specifically for the film.

The band's vocalist said that the film's lead actor Takeru Satoh (Kamen Rider Den-O, Rookies, Beck, Ryōmaden) is one of his close friends, and he admitted that making a theme song for a film — which is also the first live-action adaptation of one of Japan's top-class manga — filled him with both excitement and anxiety. Satoh added that listening to ONE OK ROCK's music while filming Kenshin lifted his spirits.

The single for the song will go on sale on August 22, and the film itself will open on August 25.
