A SCIFI JAPAN EXCLUSIVE
This past week, new photos and promotional artwork for the upcoming KAMEN RIDER GHOST / ZYUOHGER THE MOVIE double feature were released to Japanese media outlets and subsequently reposted by fan sites. SciFi Japan now has larger, high-res versions of those images direct from Toei… plus additional photos not available elsewhere!
Up first is a look at the first film based on the KAMEN RIDER GHOST (仮面ライダーゴースト, Kamen Raidaa Goosuto, 2015-16) television series. The lead character of both show and movie is Takeru Tenkuji (Shun Nishime), a young man killed by an evil alien creature called a Ganma. Brought back by a mysterious hermit (Naoto Takenaka), Takeru begins a quest for Eyecons — devices containing the spirits of either heroes or Ganma — as Kamen Rider Ghost.
In KAMEN RIDER GHOST THE MOVIE, Takeru encounters a new enemy, the look-alike Kamen Rider Dark Ghost who is attempting to collect 100 Eyecons and gain the power to turn all of mankind into ghosts. While tracking the villain with the help of his allies Alain — a reformed Ganma prince who can become Kamen Rider Necrom — and Makoto Fukami — aka Kamen Rider Specter — Takeru stumbles across a mysterious village inhabited by legendary heroes, including Makoto’s long lost father Daigo. Daigo is able to transform into Kamen Rider Zero Specter.
Adding to the family connections, Kamen Rider Dark Ghost is revealed to be Alain’s brother Argos, eldest son of the Ganma Grand Imperial Majesty Adonis. Now Takeru must fulfill his destiny by defeating Dark Ghost and his three guards; Kamen Rider Dark Necrom R (red), Dark Necrom B (blue) and Dark Necrom Y (yellow). The battle begins!
