Movie fans will be in for a treat next week as Leonardo DiCaprio, Martin Scorsese, Ron Howard, Chris Hemsworth and Daniel Bruhl visit Tokyo to promote their latest films.
Dicaprio, 39, who was here last year to promote "Django Unchained," will be making his 9th visit to Japan. He and director Scorsese are making a whirlwind two-day visit to promote the Oscar-nominated "The Wolf of Wall Street." They will walk the red carpet at the Japan premiere at Roppongi Hills on Jan 28 and attend a press conference on Jan 29.
DiCaprio can also be currently seen in Japan in a bourbon commercial campaign for Jim Beam, which was recently acquired by Suntory. He has said he will take a break from acting after "The Wolf of Wall Street" and currently has no future films in the works.
Meanwhile, director Howard, Australian actor Hemsworth, 30, and German actor Bruhl, 35, will be in Japan on Jan 28 to promote their Formula One film "Rush," which tells the story of the 1970s rivalry between James Hunt (Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Bruhl).
