In “Tokyo Revengers 2: Bloody Halloween – Destiny,” lead character Takemichi (Takumi Kitamura) witnesses his beloved Hinata (Mio Imada) being murdered by the Tokyo Manji Gang, also known as Toman. To save her, he travels back in time to a violent event called Bloody Halloween. Viewers can anticipate intense action and physical sequences as members of Toman and Valhalla gangs engage in an all-out war during the Bloody Halloween.

‘Largest set in the history of Japanese cinema’

The fight scenes were filmed in a large junkyard set described by producer Shota Okada as “the largest set in the history of Japanese cinema.” One-third of the entire two-parter was shot in that set, which was scorching during the daytime. The cast and the staff jokingly claimed they were “hanging from wires and doing all-out action in the sauna.”

The film’s dialogues were done almost entirely on the set as well. Action director Yuta Morokaji said he wanted to show how the emotions of the characters play against the sharpness of the action scenes. “There’s almost no dubbing,” he said. 

“Tokyo Revengers: Bloody Halloween – Destiny” is an Encore Films presentation under Warner Bros. distribution. Visit Encore Films Philippines on Facebook to know where to watch the movie.
