Japanese Movie Night is coming back!! The first movie we are showing is “Detroit Metal City” which is a manga series, serialized in Young Animal. A live film adaptation directed by Toshio Lee appeared in Japanese theaters summer in 2008. The lead character of the movie; Soichi Negishi, is played by Kenichi Matsuyama also famous for his role as L in the 2006 film Death Note.
Soichi Negishi is a shy and gentle young man who dreams of a career as a pop musician. Dreams don’t pay the bills, so he’s ended up as the lead singer and lead guitarist of a death metal band called “Detroit Metal City (DMC.)” In stage costume he is Johannes Krauser II, rumored to be a terrorist demon from hell. Negishi despises DMC and all that it stands for, but so help him, he’s a terrific performer and can’t walk away from that. As DMC’s star rises Negishi tries to satisfy both worlds, but can’t.
It’s free and will be showing at a new theater room on campus with movie theater quality sound system and seats.
Please come enjoy ludicrously hilarious movie.
