Among the numerous features (about 4 hours of footage) included in the Premium bluray edition of The Last Ten Years, the making of documentary stands out. The Diary of The Last Ten Years is a 59′ long report which presents the filming of key scenes as well as short interviews. The focus is on Komatsu Nana, Sakaguchi Kentaro and director Michihito Fujii, yet you have sequences with all the members of the remarkable supporting cast: Yuki Yamada, Nao, Haru Kuroki, Tetsushi Tanaka, Hideko Hara, Yutaka Matsushige, Lily Franky…
On Wednesday 20, Director Michihito Fujii and the two co-stars of The Last Ten Years – Kentaro Sakaguchi and Nana Komatsu – were at the Space FS Shiodome Cinema in Shinbashi (Tokyo) for a special promo event to celebrate the digital release of the movie (June 24) and the imminent distribution of the DVD/Bluray on Friday 22 July.
Since Friday June 24, The Last Ten Years is available in Japan on digital format from Amazon Prime, iTunes, dTV, RakutenTV and the likes.

Director Michihito Fujii‘s latest opus The Last Ten Years reached Japanese theaters just a couple of months ago on March 4, yet it will be released on DVD and Bluray on July 22 and available on digital format as soon as June 24 ! Usually, it takes about 6 months (sometimes more) for films to be released on physical disc formats but surely Warner Japan wants to build on the momentum of the movie’s remarkable success.
Box Office Hit: Yomei10nen/The Last Ten years entered the charts at #1, topped the box office for three weeks in a row and remained in the top ten until it stopped being screened on a nationwide basis, bar a few selected theaters and some special events, on May 12. With a gross revenue of nearly 3 billion yens (about 23.5 million USD), it has become the number 1 live action film in 2022.
