Judging by the first teaser trailer for the upcoming Gintama 2 (Tentative Title), the creators know they’re wading right into summer blockbuster season. The live-action sequel, which comes out this August, has just put out a video that looks like it’s ready to go toe-to-toe with this year’s big American movies.
With the film still underway, the title still undecided, and only a handful of promo images rolling out, Warner Bros. Japan is still working to max the hype for the new film. And given the tagline, MAX Wastefulness, it looks like the new film will be continuing in the same spirit as the previous one.
Gintama 2 (Tentative Title) premieres August 17 in Japan.
