The full trailer for live action verion of the popular manga/anime ASHITA NO JOE has appeared online thanks tothe movies website.
The movie is based on the boxing drama created by Tetsuya Chiba and Asao Takamori classic of the same name of of joe(played by Tomohisa Yamashita) a trouble youth who meets  Dampei Tange (Teruyuki Kagawa) who teaches him the art of boxing and he meets also Toru Rikiishi (Yusuke Iseya) and a fierce, but respectful rivalry. I dont know if the movie will follow the comicbook or the animation but in the comicbook the boxing battle inside also involve other inmates and those inmates are of different skill levels.
Been a manga/anime fan I have been fortunate to see some of he classic animes online but not enough to say I know the story well, but its what I would call a classic manga and hopefully director  Fumihiko Sori has been respectful to the story as possble s a homage to it rather than in it to make quick money.
Ashita No Joe (Tommorrow's Joe) will be released by Toho in Japan on February 11th, 2011, trailer after the break...
