The Japanese trailer for Max Mannix’s Rain Fall (Ame no Kiba) starring Gary Oldman, Kippei Shiina, and Kyoko Hasegawa has been added to the film’s official website.

In the film, which is based on the first in a series of six novels by American author Barry Eisler, Shiina plays a half-Japanese assassin named John Rain who’s forced to serve as bodyguard to the daughter of one of his victims (Hasegawa) who is thought to hold the key to exposing high-level governmental corruption. Rain is a former member of the U.S. Special Forces. While serving in Vietnam, he was betrayed by a man who later became the head of CIA operations in Tokyo, William Holtzer (Oldman). With nowhere to run, Rain depends on a trustworthy former adversary and Keisatsucho agent named Tatsu (Akira Emoto) when he needs guidance.

“Rain Fall” opens in Japan on April 25, 2009 in Japan.
