Welcome to the Tokyo underworld of the late 90s. ‘Tokyo Vice’ trailer

HBO Max presents the official trailer and poster of ‘Tokyo Vice’, a television adaptation of the memoirs of American investigative journalist Jake Adelstein, the first non-Japanese reporter to work for the Yomiuri Shinbun, Japan’s largest and largest newspaper. The book, whose full title is ‘Tokyo Vice: An American Reporter on the Police Beat in Japan’, is a first-hand account of the criminal underworld and the daily life of the police in the city of Tokyo that provides us with a cruder and less touristy vision of both the city and the country itself. For nearly 12 years, Adelstein dedicated himself to carefully following and documenting all the crimes and offenses related to Tadamasa Goto, a yakuza boss nicknamed the “John Gotti of Japan”, which evidently caused him not a few problems and risks to his health. (and how many surrounded him should be added). Michael Mann has been commissioned to direct at least the first of the ten episodes of this television miniseries created and written by playwright JT Rogers and produced by Endeavor Content (‘Dark Materials’). The director of ‘The Last of the Mohicans’, ‘Heat’, ‘The Dilemma’ or ‘Collateral’, as well as the creator of ‘Miami Vice’ (whose film adventure he also directed) is also one of its executive producers along with John Lesher, Alan Poul, Emily Gerson Saines, Kayo Washio, the directors Destin Daniel Cretton and Hikari, the aforementioned Rogers and Adelstein and the two main protagonists of the same, Ansel Elgort (‘West Side Story’) and Ken Watanabe (‘Godzilla: Rey of monsters’). Rachel Keller, Ella Rumpf, Shun Sugata, Sh Kasamatsu, Masato Hagiwara, Kosuke Toyohara, Ayumi Tanida, Nomie Nakai, Koshi Uehara and Tomohisa Yamashita complete the main cast of this series that will premiere on HBO Max next April 7, and a day later in Spain.
