The first-day-screening of movie "Platina Data" was held at TOHO Cinemas Scala Za which was attended by cast members Ninomiya Kazunari, Toyokawa Etsushi, Suzuki Honami, An, Mizuhara Kiko and Namase Katsuhisa. The event was also broadcast "live" to another 71 cinemas nationwide thus allowing 60,000 people to take part which also makes it the No.1 Japanese movie with the most people at the first-day-screening event. "Platina Data" is based on the same-titled novel by Higashino Keigo where Ninomiya plays a genius scientist who goes on the run when he becomes a murder suspect while Toyokawa plays the police detective hot on his heels. During the event, Ninomiya jokingly said that he is the 2nd generation Toyokawa Etsushi and that he memorised his lines while drinking. According to TOHO, the movie has already passed the JPY 3 billion mark thanks to the pre-screening sales and is set to be shown in 6 Asian countries including Hong Kong and Taiwan.
