Following its recent UK Premiere screenings at the Scotland Loves Anime film festival, today we have some exciting news for fans of Tokyo Ghoul as we're happy to announce we acquired the live-action movie of Tokyo Ghoul and will be bringing it to the United Kingdom.
We're happy to confirm that this will be receiving a limited run of selected cinema screenings in 2018 along with a home video release. There are no details to be shared at this time about either of those, but please stay tuned for updates as we can bring them.
Synopsis: "Riddled with gripping fight scenes and tasteful gore, this adaptation of Tokyo Ghoul brings the popular manga series to life like never before.
Buried in books and a quiet life, Ken Kaneki is all but dead to the world in an age where flesh-eating ghouls live among us. But when his only chance for survival is an organ donation that turns him into a ghoul-human hybrid, he finds sanctuary at Anteiku—a café run by the people he once considered monsters. Targeted by anti-ghoul forces, this safe house is up against a hunger more sickening than their own. When their most innocent members are threatened by humanity’s taste for vengeance, Kaneki will risk life and limb to protect the very world that changed his own."

In the ruthless city of Ergastulum chaos reigns, violence and money are the only languages that its inhabitants speak, and an underlying tension between “Normals” and enhanced beings known as “Twilights” bubbles under the surface. Alex Benedetto, a prostitute who’s being abused by her pimp, is our eyes and ears in this metropolis of debauchery.

After realising Alex’s unfortunate situation, the pair help free her from her tormenter – not forgetting to let her get her revenge on him – and soon she starts to help with their operation.
