"Handsome Suit" has an incredible promotion team. In case you haven't been reading her blog, Keiko has been traveling all over Japan with her "Handsome" co-stars cracking jokes and adding to the anticipation for this comedy romance due to hit theaters November 1st. Yesterday, Keiko attended a major stage greeting before a preview of the movie with Shousuke Tanihara, Muga Tsukagi, as well as the rest of the "Handsome" cast and staff who were rocking suits and---Shousuke's face?! Lol, Handsome Kamen (Handsome Mask)!
The "Handsome Unit" flanked behind Keiko and the leading men in a conference overflowing with press and fans. Muga kept everyone laughing with his crazy antics and the overall show was deemed a success. Positive reception already makes this movie a hit but be aware of box office competition! "Handsome" is going head to head with the highly anticipated "Red Cliff" and "Ichi." The Japanese box office is currently being dominated by "Galileo" who is holding on to the no. 1 spot against American films like "Eagle Eye" and "P.S I Love You."
If Handsome Suit debuts in the no. 1 spot it will be Keiko's first top ranking movie in her career. Keiko's highest ranking movie to date is Sono Kare which debuted in the no. 3 spot. But being that Keiko only appears for three seconds in that film, I'm hesitant to count it. So that movie disregarded, none of Keiko's movies has appeared in the top 10 of the Japanese box office. Here's looking towards a career first!
