Mamo movie gets a re-release in 4D

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Monkey Punch's Lupin the 3rd manga and its numerous animated adaptations, the 1978 anime theatrical film Lupin the 3rd: The Mystery of Mamo (known in Japan as Lupin vs. The Clone) is getting a limited theatrical re-release in Japan with 4K remastered visuals, a 5.1 digital audio mix, and MX4D gimmicks that will immerse the audience in the world of the gentleman thief.

MX4D is a movie-going experience that uses gimmicks such as smoke, scents, vibration, and moving seats to give audience members a more immersive sensory experience. The Secret of Mamo MX4D re-release marks the 2nd such release: Lupin the 3rd: The Castle of Cagliostro received a MX4D re-release in Japan in January of 2017. The Secret of Mamo MX4D re-release hits Japanese theaters beginning on September 01, 2017.


I'm impressed with this anniversary celebration. Have fun those who go to see it.

I love it, but some of those topical references are pretty dated. I wonder if the younger Japanese viewers will 'get' them. Also, is it wrong that I'm hoping they put Babylon in that format, too?

Edit: BTW, I like how it's rated G in Japan. Over here, it'd be at least PG-13.

I could swear that link had a trailer, but I guess not.

Also, this ain't really important. But the official site has a sweet enlarged and updated mock-up of the original Japanese poster for the film.  :'(

4D's a theatrical-exclusive gimmick.

This sounds pretty darn cool. I'm a bit sad that I'll never be able to experience the movie like that.
