Jin enjoyed filming video + explains theme of MV

Not sure if this'll count as news... but here you go (just for you Jin lovers :P :P :P):

The wait is over. We reported earlier that Jin Akanishi will be making his U.S. debut this November, the time has come and Warner Bros. Records have sent us exclusive press releases for Jin Akanishi's music video for his U.S. debut single “Test Drive featuring Jason Derulo.”

Accompanying the powerful single will be a provocative and innovative music video directed by Frank Borin who stated, “The track has such a big and catchy sound, I wanted to make a cinematic video that is just as epic.”

The music video was filmed in Los Angeles and takes place in an underground world that is inspired by the glamorous life of auto thieves where mystery and sexiness is combined with adrenaline. It has a very high cinematic vibe to its progression and style. The idea of “Test Drive featuring Jason Derulo” is used literally and metaphorically as Jin flirts his way through his crew of beautiful and seductive female thieves. Akanishi said, “I had a great time filming the music video, it definitely fits the cool vibe of the single.”

Srrrrrry forgot source... >.<

Japan aims to squeeze more cash from Hollywood

A new company backed by the government will buy the rights to Japanese anime, toys and other creative products and tout them to Hollywood producers.

All Nippon Entertainment Works Co., which has received 6 billion yen (about $80 million) from the 90-percent government-sponsored Innovation Network Corp. of Japan (INCJ), will begin acquiring rights this month. It plans to invest 3 billion yen over the next three years to acquire the rights to 10 products and get movies made.

Hollywood has a long history of relying on Japanese creativity. Perhaps the most famous example is John Sturges’s "The Magnificent Seven" (1960), a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s "Seven Samurai" (1954), but more recent examples include remakes of the horror movie “Ring” (1998), released in the United States as “The Ring” in 2002, and the romantic comedy “Shall We Dance” (1996), which starred Richard Gere in its 2004 Hollywood remake.

The real task for All Nippon Entertainment Works, which was set up at the end of last month, will be to ensure that profits from the remakes start flowing to Japan.

In the past, the Japanese rights holders have often sold out their interests to producers overseas. When movies have become hits, they have not necessarily had a cut of the profits.
