The Hollywood adaptation of Kotaro Isaka’s bestselling novel “Maria Beetle,” starring Brad Pitt and directed by David Leitch (“Deadpool 2”), the mystery-action “Bullet Train” will finally hit theaters on September 1 (Thursday)!



A series of off-shoots have been unveiled!


In honor of the film’s setting on a super high-speed train from Tokyo to Kyoto, the “first ever moving red carpet event” was held on Tuesday, August 23 on the Tokaido Shinkansen Nozomi bullet train running from Tokyo Station to Kyoto Station, with the cooperation of JR Tokai!


The star Brad Pitt (Ladybug), who made his 14th visit to Japan in 3 years to promote this film, Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Tangerine), who was visiting Japan for the first time, Hiroyuki Sanada (Elder), who returned to Japan urgently to promote this film, and David Crawford, who brought this splendid cast together. Director David Leitch, who brought together this splendid cast, took the stage for the event, which drew an unprecedented amount of attention, and released a series of behind-the-scenes shots of the event and interviews.

Brad Pitt looked relaxed during his time off from the press, looking out the train window with Aaron Taylor-Johnson and taking a commemorative photo with a mini towel of Momo-mon, a character in the movie! And, just like on a school trip? Brad Pitt was in a good mood and kept smiling even behind the scenes, taking selfies with the bullet train in the background and taking photos of the cameramen and reporters backwards. The special Shinkansen train, which was decorated exclusively for “Bullet Train,” is also shown in this rare shot.
