Lupin III: The First Trailer + Netflix’s Lupin Teaser


Within the span of a few days, we’ve had two new trailers debut for upcoming works based on the classic French literary antihero, Arsène Lupin. The first is for the Japanese CG-animated film Lupin III: The First, which is getting a North American release courtesy of GKIDS next month. The character Lupin III is the grandson of the original Lupin and first appeared in a manga series by Monkey Punch that eventually spawned several animated shows and movies (including Hayao Miyazaki’s The Castle of Cagliostro). I believe this is the first time he has been rendered fully in CG, however. Meanwhile, Netflix has dropped the first trailer for their upcoming live-action Lupin series which stars Omar Sy as a gentleman thief named Assane Diop. Lupin III: The First hits select theatres on Oct. 23rd while Lupin is expected to arrive on Netflix in January; check out both trailers after the jump and see what you think.

    I would definitely check out the Netflix series – more adult.
