@ Rahvens - Because the cahracters aren't Japanese. They do that a lot over there when they bring in foreign actors and characters, let them speak their own language.

That was some awesome mid-80's techno porn music they had there.

Even from this trailer, Hollywood couldn't do a proper Asian Femme much less an Asian man proper in any of their highest budgeted movies.

Take note you twits even from a trailer. Can't wait to see this.

Fujiko is played by Meisa Kuroki, a Japanese actress, model and singer. She is a great actress.

@Snooper
DAISUKE JIGEN, GOEMON, and FUJIKO MINE are obviously French names. No you dimwit everyone in Lupin's gang is Japanese. Even Lupin in the old series was half if not mostly Japanese. It looks like their making him half-French, half-Japanese in the adaption though. Either that or he's adopted.
LittleDanglyThing - 6/25/2014, 11:27 PM
Where are his side burns? Fujiko can get it.
