A trailer has been released for the Japanese pop idol movie called "Idol Is Dead 2." The movie is due to hit theaters across Japan come January 11, 2014.
The first trailer has been released for the music-themed action movie called Idol Is Dead 2. Idol Is Dead 2, the sequel to the 2012 film Idol Is Dead, will be hitting theaters across Japan starting January 11, 2014. If you are a fan of the Japanese pop-rock group called BiS (Brand-new Idol Society), you may want to check out Idol Is Dead 2 aka Idol Is Dead: Non-Chan no Propaganda Daisenso & Idol Is Dead: Non-Chan's Great Propaganda War.
The members of BiS, in both films, seemingly play satirical versions of themselves. In this respect, BiS is an actual pop idol group in Japan that's currently signed with AVEX. If you are into Japanese pop idol groups, especially BiS, you may want to check out this film when it hits theaters.
Idol Is Dead 2 seemingly continues off after the first Idol Is Dead film. The members of BiS are coming together for a reunion; at the time, they find themselves in a bloody battle fighting a conspiracy that involves the new pop idol group called Electric Kiss. This movie gives a comedic and satirical look at how cutthroat the world of Japanese pop idols can be.
In the first movie, it focuses on a bar hostess and former singer named Rui. She meets her former rival Momoko who has found success. With Momoko gloating about her fame with fellow members of her group called “Ikaho Onsens” and rubbing it in Rui's face, Rui gets angry and ends up beating them all to death. In response, she and her friends end up forming BiS to take the place of Ikaho Onsens. However, that's not the end as Momoko gets brought back to life as a cyborg.
With regards to the real life group, BiS is considered to be a symbol of idol counter-culture as they attract an alternative crowd.
For those interested, this is the full song by BiS which plays near the end of the trailer.
