STORY: "At the end of the 21st century, the world is plagued by a mysterious virus and unusual weather. Genius scientist Dr. Kisaragi creates an android with the code name “Cutie Honey” (Mariya Nishiuchi). The android is unique in that it possesses human emotions. To save mankind, Cutie Honey goes up against an evil organization."
Check out more info (In Japanese :p) via the official website at www.cutiehoney-movie.jp. Currently no info for the film to premiere in Singapore tho… The last I remember seeing actress Mariya Nishiuchi was in GTO / “Great Teacher Onizuka” (2012 edition), and my only connection so far to the fictional character was a 1/6th-scaled action figure from CYGirls - which the costume seen in this film look much similar too :)
And this is the second time “Cutie Honey” had graced the silver screens too, with the 2004 Japanese tokusatsu (live-action) film adaptation, produced by Gainax, starring Japanese model Eriko Sato! Check out the trailer for that featured at the bottom of this post! Much changes since the last decade+, isn’t it? :)
WHAT-IS: ”Cutie Honey: Tears is an upcoming Japanese film directed by Asai Takeshi. The film is based on the manga series Cutie Honey written and illustrated by Go Nagai and stars Mariya Nishiuchi as the title character. It is scheduled for release in Japan by Toei Company on October 1, 2016." (Wiki)
