Movie or scandal? First teaser for “Helter Skelter”!
Asmik Ace released the first teaser for the upcoming live-action movie adaption of Okazaki Kyoko’s manga “Helter Skelter“, starring Sawajiri Erika and directed by Ninagawa Mika.
“Helter Skelter” tells the story of a woman named ‘Ririko’ (Sawajiri), who received cosmetic surgery on her entire body, thus allowing her to become a shining top star in the entertainment industry. Eventually, however, her body starts to deteriorate due to the procedure’s after-effects. During this time, ‘Ririko’ causes many incidents one right after another, drawing people around her into the fray.
The entire first 22 seconds of the trailer are without any sound and only show ‘Ririko’ wearing red lingerie and holding a cigarette in her hand. She approaches the camera, when suddenly there is the sound of a camera shutter and the caption ‘a scandal more than a movie‘. With the following scream by ‘Ririko’ and the start of the music, the teaser gives us a quick ride through the total mess that is the world of “Helter Skelter”. It’s a nice peek into the both beautiful and intense world of show business, filled with greed for beauty, fame, money, and love.
“Helter Skelter” is scheduled to open in Japan on July 14th.
