Based on Takeshi Kitano’s memoir, Netflix Film Asakusa Kid is based on the true and moving tale of the living legend, in a tale of dreams, failures, love and loyalty of Kitano with his mentor Senzaburo Fukami.
Legendary comedian and auteur Takeshi Kitano is known in Japan and around the world, but lesser known are his mentor and his friends who helped him reach such heights. Studying under Senzaburo Fukami, a largely forgotten comedian who once mastered the stage, and with help from his fellows, he starts to carve out his own path to stardom, only to discover too late the price of his fame and success — the people who helped get him there. Set in mid-1960s Asakusa, a somewhat seedy part of Tokyo, Kitano dropped out of college in search of something better, and took a job at the Asakusa Furansu-za theater known as a hall of fame for strip shows and comedy, where he soon became an apprentice of the legendary comedian Senzaburo Fukami. Fukami was the comedy master behind other famous comedians such as Hachiro Azuma and Kinichi Hagimoto, who disavowed television and only believed in the live stage. Kitano worked hard under Fukami to polish his craft and achieve his dream of becoming a successful comedian. However, as home television became ever more popular, live comedy gradually fell out of favor.

In select theaters December 10, on Netflix December 24.
Kate Dibiasky (Jennifer Lawrence), an astronomy grad student, and her professor Dr. Randall Mindy (Leonardo DiCaprio) make an astounding discovery of a comet orbiting within the solar system. The problem — it’s on a direct collision course with Earth. The other problem? No one really seems to care. Turns out warning mankind about a planet-killer the size of Mount Everest is an inconvenient fact to navigate. With the help of Dr. Oglethorpe (Rob Morgan), Kate and Randall embark on a media tour that takes them from the office of an indifferent President Orlean (Meryl Streep) and her sycophantic son and Chief of Staff, Jason (Jonah Hill), to the airwaves of The Daily Rip, an upbeat morning show hosted by Brie (Cate Blanchett) and Jack (Tyler Perry). With only six months until the comet makes impact, managing the 24-hour news cycle and gaining the attention of the social media obsessed public before it’s too late proves shockingly comical — what will it take to get the world to just look up?!
