Arrow Films have released the first official UK trailer for Kore-eda Hirokazu‘s ‘The Third Murder’, out in cinemas across the UK on 23 March, 2018.
Directed, written and edited by Kore-eda, The Third Murder is produced by Matsuzaki Kaoru and Taguchi Hijiri and stars Fukuyama Masaharu (Like Father, Like Son, Midsummer’s Equation, Galileo), Yakusho Koji (13 Assassins, Memoirs of a Geisha, Babel) and Hirose Suzu (Our Little Sister, Rage, The Boy and the Beast).
Leading attorney Shigemori takes on the defence of murder-robbery suspect Misumi who served jail time for another murder 30 years ago. Shigemori’s chances of winning the case seem low – his client freely admits his guilt, despite facing the death penalty if he is convicted. As he digs deeper into the case, as he hears the testimonies of the victim’s family and Misumi himself, the once confident Shigemori begins to doubt whether his client is the murderer after all.
THE THIRD MURDER directed by Kore-Eda Hirokazu will be in UK cinemas 23rd March
