YesAsia Editorial Description

One of the most beloved sports comics in contemporary Japanese pop culture, Tomorrow's Joe (a.k.a. Ashita no Joe) hits the big screen once again as a live-action film nearly four decades after Takamori Asaki's comic series ended its run. NEWS member Yamashita Tomohisa fills some giant shoes, starring as the iconic Yabuki Joe, a troubled orphan in post-war Japan that escapes a life of crime and becomes a professional boxer. To prepare for the intense boxing scenes, both Yamashita and Iseya Yusuke (who plays Joe's rival Rikiishi) underwent a rigorous physical training program, and viewers will see all of their accomplishments on the screen. As the first live-action Tomorrow's Joe film since 1970, the new Tomorrow's Joe may use modern filmmaking technology to capture the fight scenes, but director Sori Fumihiko (Ping Pong) also makes sure his focus remains on telling a classic story of redemption and sportsmanship.

Wandering Tokyo's poorest neighborhood, drifter Yabuki Joe (Yamashita Tomohisa) gets into a fight with several thugs in front of rich heiress Yoko (Karina) and former boxer Danpei (Kagawa Teruyuki). For the brawl, Joe is sent to jail, where he meets professional boxer Rikiishi (Iseya Yusuke). Realizing Joe's talent as a boxer, Danpei trains Joe to become a professional via postcards while Yoko sets up an exhibition match in prison for Rikiishi and Joe. This training helps Joe in achieving a draw against Rikiishi. However, the rivalry is only beginning, as the two boxers promise to face off once more when they're both out of jail.

Premium Edition comes with a bonus DVD with making of, stage events, cast interview, original creator interview, credit-less end title sequence, and special effects making of.
