Takuya Kimura´s Hero, the Movie
Hero, a film starred by Japanese star Takuya Kimura, is now in its sixth week of being the top box office winner in Japan. Released on September 8, the movie has already attracted 5.5 million cinema-goers, profiting over 7 billion Japanese yen. It scored the highest out of all the Japanese movies this year, defeating another Kimura's production Bushi no ichibun.
In 2001, Kimura starred in Hero's TV drama series. Box office takings for the movie are expected to keep growing, exceeding Limit of Love: Umizaru, which recorded the highest box office in 2006.
