RADWIMPS feat. Suda Masaki's song "Utakata Uta" will be used as the theme song for the movie 'Kinema no Kamisama' ('God of Cinema') that's set to open in theaters on August 6.
'Kinema no Kamisama' is a live-action adaptation of Harada Maha's novel of the same title that will be produced to commemorate 100 years of Shochiku's films. It will follow the life of Go, a man who believed in the "god of cinema" all his life, and a miracle that happens to his family. It will star Sawada Kenji and Suda Masaki, as well as RADWIMPS's Noda Yojiro.
Noda sent a demo of "Utakata Uta" to the movie's director Yamada Yoji after they finished shooting as a way to express his gratitude. Producer Fusa Shunsuke, who heard the demo, felt that the movie would be complete if Suda and Noda sang it as the theme song. As such, Noda took the demo and created "Utakata Uta."
