Live-Action ‘Tokyo Ghoul’ Film UK Theatrical Locations Revealed

Back in October we mentioned that distributor Anime Limited would be bringing the live-action Tokyo Ghoul film to the United Kingdom and Ireland with a theatrical release as well. Today, the distributor has now offered a new trailer and news that some theatrical locations are available in preparation for the Wednesday 31st January 2018 launch!

The film will be presented in Japanese with English subtitles only and it will only be available for one night. Here’s the story synopsis:

In modern day Tokyo, society lives in fear of Ghouls: creatures who look exactly like humans – yet hunger insatiably for their flesh. None of this matters to Ken Kaneki, a bookish and ordinary boy, until a dark and violent encounter turns him into the first ever Ghoul-human half breed. Trapped between two worlds, Ken must survive the violent conflicts of warring Ghoul factions, while attempting to learn more about his powers.

Here is a brand new UK theatrical trailer from Anime Limited’s official YouTube channel:
