The official website of the real image films that adapt the manga Gintama by Hideaki Sorachi has shown a new promotional image of the second film, Gintama 2, in which we can see the actor Jiro Sato as a character not yet specified. The image parodies the well-known movie The Godfather: Part II.

Gintama 2 will premiere on August 17 in Japanese theaters.

Shun Oguri, Masaki Suda and Kanna Hashimoto will return from the first film to resume their respective roles as Gintoki Sakata, Shinpachi Shimura and Kagura.

The film aims to surpass the figures of the first, released in July 2017 in Japan and which managed to raise 980 million yen (US$8.9 million) in just four days.
