Killing for the Prosecution (Blu-ray) (English Subtitled) (Deluxe Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Ninomiya Kazunari
| Yoshitaka Yuriko
| Yamazaki Tsutomu
Johnny's idols Kimura Takuya and Ninomiya Kazunari collaborate onscreen for the first time in Killing for the Prosecution! Harada Masato (The Emperor in August) directs the courtroom suspense film based on the 2013 novel Kensatsugawa no Zainin by Shizukue Shusuke. Kimura, who famously played an eccentric, upright public prosecutor in the Hero series, takes on a grayer role this time as a veteran prosecutor facing a moral dilemma. The tense legal procedural also co-stars Yoshitaka Yuriko (Yurigokoro), Matsushige Yutaka (Midnight Diner), Hira Takehiro (Sekigahara), Okura Koji (Recall) and Yamazaki Tsutomu.
Okino (Ninomiya Kazunari), a young prosecutor in the Tokyo District Public Prosecutor's Office, looks up to elite veteran Mogami (Kimura Takuya) as a mentor. The two are assigned to a murder case whose suspect was previously implicated in an infamous schoolgirl murder case that has passed its statute of limitations. Okino's doubts about Mogami's handling of the investigation leads to a standoff between the two prosecutors over where justice lies.
Shoplifters (DVD) (Normal Edition) (Japan Version) DVD Region 2
Kore-eda Hirokazu (Director)
| Ando Sakura
| Kiki Kirin
| Matsuoka Mayu
Kore-eda Hirokazu's Shoplifters won the Palme d'Or at the 71st Cannes Film Festival, making it the first Japanese film to take the festival's prestigious top prize in over two decades. The auteur's socially conscious humanist drama revolves around a family of petty thieves formed by Like Father, Like Son's Lily Franky, indie darling Ando Sakura (100 Yen Love), Matsuoka Mayu (Tremble All You Want), child actor Kairi Jo and legendary late actress Kiki Kirin. The arrival of a new member causes their fragile bonds to gradually unravel in this poignant examination of what makes up a family.
Shifty father Osamu (Lily Franky) works in construction and regularly goes shoplifting with young Shota (Kairi Jo). His wife Nobuyo (Ando Sakura) swipes things at the laundromat, grandma Hatsue (Kiki Kirin) plays too much pachinko, and Aki (Matsuoka Mayu) moonlights at a peep show. One cold night, Osamu and Shota find a little girl (Sasaki Miyu) locked out of her home and freezing in the streets. They bring her back to their bustling nest where they discover marks of abuse on her body. The girl seems in no rush to go home, and her parents don't try to find her. Despite the family's already tough circumstances, they decide to keep her and give her a new name. However, one day, the parents finally report her disappearance to the police, putting the family and their many secrets at risk of exposure.
Code Blue The Movie (Blu-ray) (Normal Edition) (Japan Version) Blu-ray Region All
| Yamashita Tomohisa
| Arioka Daiki
| Asari Yosuke
Following three hit television seasons over a decade's time, the Fuji TV medical drama Code Blue flies to the silver screen in the highest-grossing live-action Japanese film of 2018. Yamashita Tomohisa, Aragaki Yui, Toda Erika, Higa Manami and Asari Yosuke return as the core members of the Doctor Heli emergency medical services team, along with Arioka Daiki, Narita Ryo, Araki Yuko and Baba Fumika who were introduced in Season 3 as the new greenhorns. Other series actors like Shiina Kippei, Ando Masanobu and Sugimoto Tetta also appear, and Arata Mackenyu joins the movie as the boyfriend of a terminally ill patient played by Yamaya Kasumi.
Aizawa Kousaku (Yamashita Tomohisa), Shiraishi Megumi (Aragaki Yui), Hiyama Mihoko (Toda Erika), Fuikawa Kazuo (Asari Yosuke) and Saejima Haruka (Higa Manami) have been through thick and thin together over the years, and they are each entering new stages of their lives and careers. Shiraishi has to lead a new class of young flight doctors, Hiyama is soon leaving for a position in obstetrics, Aizawa has a medical fellowship in the U.S., and Fuikawa and Saejima are getting married – if they can get away from work for a day. On Aizawa's first day back in Japan, he already walks into an emergency situation at the airport. Many personal and professional challenges await as each doctor, both new and experienced, face career choices, medical dilemmas and a large-scale disaster that threatens the safety of one of their own.
