The film stars Sosuke Ikematsu as Takeshi Hongo, a young motorcyclist whose life is turned upside down when he is kidnapped by the Sustainable Happiness Organization with Computational Knowledge Embedded Remodeling (SHOCKER) cult. Newly-transformed into a mutant cyborg, Hongo escapes from Shocker with help from Ruriko (Minami Hamabe)—vowing to exact his vengeance against the cult and finally put a stop to their sinister plans for global domination.
“Shin Kamen Rider” is directed and cowritten by legendary filmmaker Hideaki Anno, the creative force behind the acclaimed anime “Neon Genesis Evangelion,” as well as popular modern tokusatsu entries “Shin Godzilla” and “Shin Ultraman.” Initially developed in 2021 to celebrate the 50TH Anniversary of the groundbreaking “Kamen Rider” series, the film is heralded as Anno’s love letter to one of Japan’s most-enduring tokusatsu franchises and the masked motorcycle-bound hero he calls his dearest childhood icon. Packed with priceless easter eggs and references spanning across the franchise’s history, “Shin Kamen Rider” is sure to delight fans old and new as the crime-fighting cyborg rides high once again.
