Completion press conference of movie "Vancouver no Asahi"
The completion press conference of new movie "Vancouver no Asahi" was held on 15 October which was attended by cast members Tsumabuki Satoshi, KAT-TUN's Kamenashi Kazuya, Kamiji Yusuke, Ikematsu Sosuke and Katsuji Ryo. The movie which is directed by Ishii Yuya and due to be shown in cinemas from 20 December, is about the Vancouver Asahi baseball team made up of second-generation Japanese immigrants in Canada which was active before WWII. Among the lead actors, Tsumabuki who plays the captain of the team, had no experience in playing baseball so he had to go to a park at night to practise throwing the baseball at a wall. However, he got hit by the ball and ended up with a nosebleed thus leading him to comment that his 33-year-old body couldn't meet the physical demands of his character during the filming process.
