Masked Rider 1 is coming!

On New Year’s Day, Toei Co. announced their 2016 “Superhero Year” project commemorating the anniversaries of the studio’s Kamen Rider and Super Sentai franchises with new movies, home videos, TV programs, and events. The first major release will be the feature film MASKED RIDER 1, opening nationwide in Japan on Saturday, March 26th.

The movie is based on the original Kamen Rider television series, MASKED RIDER, which aired from April 3, 1971 – February 10, 1973. The hit show sparked a “transforming hero” boom in Japan, inspiring decades of imitations and sequels up to the current KAMEN RIDER GHOST series. For the new film, the hero Takeshi Hongo will wear an updated version of the classic Masked Rider costume.

The following is taken from Toei’s press release…

45 years after his creation
Masked Rider still boasts tremendous popularity throughout the world.

Out of the darkness of a hidden past
There was one person who risked his life, fighting a war for mankind’s freedom.
The introduction of a new enemy. An encounter with a new friend.
The old excitement, force and justice power up!
The megaflick the whole world awaits is born here!
March 26, 2016
The curtain opens a new legend of Masked Rider!
