Full trailer for Shion Sono's "Why Don’t You Play in Hell?"

A new trailer has been released for Shion Sono’s upcoming action comedy Why Don’t You Play in Hell? It was also revealed that one of the stars of the film, Gen Hoshino, wrote and performed the theme song before his most recent hiatus following additional treatment for the subarachnoid hemorrhage he got surgery for late last year. The song can be heard around the 1-minute mark and it will be released as a single on October 2.

The film is based on a reworked version of a screenplay Sono wrote over 10 years ago. Jun Kunimura plays a yakuza boss who decides to make a film specifically for his daughter Mitsuko (Fumi Nikaido) to star in. The project is intended as a gift to his wife Shizue (Tomochika) who was sent to prison after taking the fall for him.

Eventually, a timid passerby (Hoshino) and an enthusiastic young film buff (Hiroki Hasegawa) are recruited to the staff of this yakuza prodiction. Meanwhile, a rival yakuza boss named Ikegami (Shinichi Tsutsumi) falls in love with Mitsuko as a fictional gang war overlaps with a real one.

“Why Don’t You Play in Hell?” will get its world premiere at the 70th Venice Film Festival (August 28-September 7) and its North American premiere at the 38th Toronto International Film Festival (September 5-15) as part of the Midnight Madness section. It will open in Japan on September 28, 2013.

MomoClo, Morning Musume, Nogizaka46, Sexy Zone, Kis-My-Ft2 bashed after performing at FNS

Since producer Shin Kikuchi declared that this year's "FNS uta no natsu matsuri" will not be tolerating lip-syncing, almost all participants sang live. But a lot of fans have also been saying, "If this is the outcome, then they should have lip-synced instead".

This was first voiced out when Momoiro Clover Z performed with miwa.
"MomoClo's getting in the way www"
"They're totally drowning out miwa's singing."
"They're horrible."

MomoClo also performed the classic "Cosmos" (Momoe Yamaguchi) with Masashi Sada later in the program.
"This singing level... Aplogize! Apologize to Momoe-chan!!"
"MomoClo's singing way out of tune, it feels like Masashi Sada's undergoing torture."

This was also true for Morning Musume who performed "Help me!!" and "Love Machine".
"Eh! So the current generation of Morning Musume is this bad at singing?"
"Is this an amateur singing contest?"

About Nogizaka46 who sang "Oide Shampoo":
"They're so bad, right? wwwwwww"
"It's like a school festival performance."

About Sexy Zone who performed "Sexy Summer ni yuki ga furu":
"Practice singing first WWWWWW"
"The singing is so bad, it's not sexy at all."

About Kis-My-Ft2 who sang "Donna toki mo" with Noriyuki Makihara:
"Makihara's beautiful voice is being obliterated by Kis-My."
"LOLing at the difference in their singing abilities."

But there are still people who commend them for singing live, which has even led to some celebrities such as Chiaki to comment:"I don't consider the ones lip-syncing as singers. From an aspiring singer".
