Casshern Director

Just a bit of trivia for you, but the director of the new very cool-looking Japanese live-action anime adaptation CASSHERN (click here to see the trailer) is directed by uber J-pop idol Utada Hikaru’s husband, Kiriya Kazuaki. He’s directed a lot of Utada’s music videos, and now that I know this, I can see that the CASSHERN visuals do link up to some of the effects heavy videos he’s done. The movie starts playing in theatres here next week.
