First Look: Takashi Miike's God's Puzzle

When this was first announced last August as Takashi Miike's next project, we did actually do a brief write-up on it. God's Puzzle (Kamisama no Puzzle) is much more mainstream and light-hearted sci-fi romantic comedy from the cult Japanese mastermind. The film revolves around a young slacker who agrees to attend his identical twin's college classes and ends up being partnered with a pretty, brilliant, dropout in a project to create a universe. This already sounds incredible, but in the hands of Takashi Miike even moreso. Thanks to our friends at Twitch, we've got the first photos from the film.

God's Puzzle stars Hayato Ichihara and Mitsuki Tanimura, both of whom can be seen in the photos below. The film is currently set to arrive in theaters in Japan this summer, but doesn't have a US distributor yet.

Hayato Ichihara (Juon 2, Rainbow Song) stars as twins - one a diligent student and one who is drifting through school and life. They join forces with a pretty, brilliant, dropout (Mitsuki Tanimura) to unlock the secrets of the universe and build one of their own.

God's Puzzle is based on the prize-winning, bestselling novel by Shinji Kimoto. Cult Japanese filmmaker Takashi Miike is best known for his grotesque horror films including Ichi the Killer, Audition, Gozu, and One Missed Call, but is creating more lighter fare this time.

    This movie sounds very cool and original. Hopefully it's released here soon, or I'll just wait for the DVD. The poster's kinda lame tho
