Action film | Survival-thriller!
One of the most anticipated western movies or shows of 2020, Alice in Borderland, is to be released on Dec 10 on Netflix worldwide. The sci-fi thriller is based on a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Haro Aso; the live-action series for the streaming website is produced by Shinsuke Sato.
The series follows three gamer friends Arisu, Karube, and Segawa (played by Kento Yamazaki, Keita Machida, and Yuki Morinaga respectively) as they find themselves transported to a parallel world. In the official teaser dropped by Netflix, instead of tripping down a rabbit hole, the ‘Alice’ of the show (that is Arisu along with his friends) is transferred to a post-apocalyptic-like Tokyo in a toilet cubicle in Shibuya Station.
The baffled high schoolers step into an empty festival as night falls, where they receive their first message. A woman appears and tells them they are in Borderland, and they must play games to survive.
Out of all the Japanese productions on Netflix, anime shows and action films have been one of the most successful ones. The producer Sato is known for turning famous manga series into hit live-action movies. One of his most recent works is ‘Kingdom’, which also has Yamazaki as the protagonist. With the same brilliant talent and sizable budget, Alice in Borderland is also expected to become a viral hit.
With only one day left until the release of the series, fans are dying of anticipation. The wait is unreal and these 15 memes, reactions, and tweets about
