Christopher Webster [Celluloid 04.29.09] movie trailer apocalyptic news action

Thanks to the Twitch gang we've finally got a full look at the explosive, live action Manga adaptation MW.

When a top secret chemical compound called MW infects an island near Okinawa, the military is sent in to kill all the victims and cover up the incident. A survivor named Michio Yuki (Hiroshi Tamaki) grows up to become a highly-successful banker, but he is slowly being driven mad by the effects of MW. After committing a series of ruthless crimes to get revenge against the people responsible for the cover-up, he decides that the only way to truly get revenge is to unleash MW on the world and exterminate the entire human race.

While the trailer is definitely more satisfying than those early teasers, it's tough to tell the tone when there's a Jpop song blasting the background. But ah well, that seems to be par for the course these days with films aiming to harness a younger demo. Trailer after the jump.
