Based on the bestselling manga series of the same name, director Shinsuke Sato’s live-action adaptation is a historical adventure about the warring states of China during 475–221 BC.

Kingdom follows two boys orphaned by war, Shin (Kento Yamazaki) and Hyou (Ryo Yoshizawa; Gintama), who grow up in a peasant village. They’re determined to become the greatest army generals the world has ever seen! The now young men are suddenly separated when Hyou is summoned to protect the king. After a series of tragic events, Shin is faced with a treacherous journey to restore justice, meeting all sorts of crafty characters along the way. Will his quest to avenge his friend lead Shin to victory and his ultimate destiny?

From the hit manga that has sold over 30 million copies worldwide, Kingdom promises lots of action with an all-Japanese leading cast!
