American actors Leonardo DiCaprio and Nicolas Cage arrived in Japan on Monday afternoon to promote their latest films. DiCaprio, 35, and Cage, 46, arrived separately on private jets and were both greeted by about 200 fans at Narita airport.
Cage, who is on his 7th visit to Japan and first in three years, said Japanese fans were very important to him. "My movies have always been well received here," he said. He will attend the Japan premiere for his new film, "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," at Odaiba on Wednesday night.
DiCaprio, who was last here in March for "Shutter Island," said he was happy to be back again with "a great movie," referring to "Inception." He was joined at Tuesday night's Japan premiere by co-stars Ken Watanabe and director Christopher Nolan.
"The Sorcerer's Apprentice" opens in Japan on Aug 13, while "Inception" opens nationwide next Saturday.© Japan Today
