Completion screening event of new movie "Utsukushii Hoshi"

The completion screening event of new movie "Utsukushii Hoshi" was held at Yurakucho Asahi Hall on 24 April which was attended by the director Yoshida Daihachi and cast members Lily Frankie, Kamenashi Kazuya, Hashimoto Ai, Nakajima Tomoko and Sasaki Kuranosuke. The movie which will be shown in cinemas from 26 May, is based on a science-fiction story published by Mishima Yukio in 1962 and adapted by the director for this movie which features the Osugi family that awakens to their true selves of being aliens from other planets. The father (Lily) becomes an alien from Mars while the son (Kamenashi) becomes an alien from Mercury and the daughter (Hashimoto) becomes an alien from Venus. However, the mother (Nakajima) remains as an earthling and doesn't understand why. Sasaki plays a mysterious alien who gets close to the Osugi family.

During the phototaking session, Lily suggested that everyone do the Mars alien pose but they were quite embarrassed to do it except for Kamenashi. Once they struck the pose, the audience burst into laughter. Kamenashi revealed that as his character was constantly not at home, he did not have any scenes with the rest of "his family members" and only met them for three or four days which he felt was a pity. Lily then teased him about this and said that his "son" hardly comes home so the Osugi family is fine with just three members. Kamanashi replied to apologise for his absence as his character is a "playboy" which made everyone laugh.
