The animated anti-hero comes to life! The first and only live action Lupin film. Originally released in 1974, this is the first EVER adaption of Lupin on the big screen. Produced and released by the famed Toho studios, this film was written by Monkey Punch (creator of Lupin) himself.
Wacky master thief Lupin the Third hits the big screen for the first time in this energetic, live-action romp! Based on the best-selling adult comics from Japanese artist Monkey Punch, this Strange Psychokinetic Strategy sends Lupin (Yuki Meguro, Shogun), sexy cat-burglar Fujiko (Hideko Ezaki), quick-draw gunman Jigen (Kunie Tanaka, Zatoichi's Pilgrimage) and their relentless pursuer Inspector Zenigata (Shiro Ito, Supermarket Woman) on a chase through jewel-filled safes, Tokyo streets, and even through Lupin's childhood.
The Maccherone organization is out to get a priceless national treasure. But when they see third-generation cat-burglar Lupin as an obstacle, countless assassins are sent to kill him on sight and kidnap his girl Fujiko! Can Lupin get the loot before the Maccherone gang, rescue Fujiko, and stay alive at the same time?
