Cinefantastique & Femme Fatales will present the U.S. premiere of Takashi Yamazaki’s sci-fi film “THE RETURNER” in San Diego the night of Thursday, July 17th.
The year is 2084 and the human race is fighting an alien militia to save the last remnant of civilization. A young heroine named Milly (ANN SUZUKI) escapes the war and jumps back in time to present-day Japan in an attempt to change history and prevent the demise of her people. Milly’s return lands her in the middle of a local crime war between Miyamoto (TAKESHI KANESHIRO), a street-smart gunman, and Mizoguchi (GORO KISHITANI), Japan’s crime leader. Milly must coerce Miyamototo to help chase down the extraterrestrial and save the human race…But first Milly must convince Miyamoto she’s for real. In the visceral, dark, cold world of the streets, these two fight against the evil and ignorance that will destroy everything.
Passes to the film will be given out at the CFQ/FF booth at the San Diego ComicCon that first day, which people can find on the floor at spot 3820 – 3822.
