3 Comments

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).

"The Wolf of Wall Street" opens in Japan on Jan 31, while "Rush" opens on Feb 7.

He was underage to drink at that time :P

Nice of my old Pal Leo to promote Wolf of Wall Street, I mean I hope the movie gets an oscar, I've been following Leo since he did Titanic but I have seen his earlier works and he really is a great actor, I love him in Catch me if you can and The aviator.

As for Rush, Sounds interesting, but only because of Chris...

Definitely. He first caught my attention as the handicapped kid in What's Eating Gilbert Grape, then as the junkie in The Basketball Diaries. He's always been an excellent actor, and will definitely be remembered in the future as the star of a generation.
