Oguri Shun
1 against 149 in Crows Zero 2





Oguri Shun 1 against 149 brawl in Crows filming

Lead actor Oguri Shun (25), recently ended filming for Crows Zero 2 (directed by Miike Takashi, opens next year). The filming which took place in Tsuchiura City, Ibaraki Prefecture ended in a climax fight scene where Oguri faced 149 opponents. As the character Oguri plays, Takaya Genji, graduates from Suzuran High School, Oguri is also graduating from this series where he has appeared twice. "It was a dream team. I did it with the intention of giving it my all," he said, without regrets.

Wearing iron-tipped boots which weigh a little less than 1kg, he alone confronts 149 people from his rival school. It's the scene Takaya marches boldly into. Oguri charges at full speed and attacks the masses of shaved heads. The staff and other cast members could be heard saying "Scary~" and "Amazing~". Even when the scene was re-shot at different angles and distances many times over, the tension in Oguri remains unchanged. This scene started at 8 in the morning, and continued well into sunset.

This appearance will be his last one for the series. "I wanted to walk away from it with a bang," he said. Oguri trained at the boxing gym every 3 days and also did weights. The surroundings also played a part in the change in his physical appearance as they had to overcome the grueling heat of filming through August.

Yamada Takayuki, Takaoka Sousuke and Kiritani Kenta from the first movie returns in the cast. Miura Haruma (18) makes his appearance this time. Oguri commented,"Guys in the late 20s like us can't keep on doing this. It's better to hand it over to the next generation." Miura said,"I definitely want to be a part of the next generation of Crows. I want to see what Oguri-san has." He will surely succeed in the Crows spirit Oguri has created.

小栗1対149のケンカで撮影"クローズ"

俳優小栗旬(25)主演映画「クローズZERO2」(三池崇史監督、来年公開)がこのほど撮了した。茨城県土浦市で行われた撮影では、小栗は149人を相手にするクライマックスのケンカシーンに挑んだ。小栗演じる滝谷源治が鈴蘭高校を卒業するのと同時に、小栗も2作出演したシリーズを卒業。「ドリームチームだった。燃え尽きるつもりでやった」と悔いはない。

 重さ1キロ弱、つま先に鉄が入ったブーツをはいた小栗が、たった1人でライバル校鳳仙学園の149人と対峙(たいじ)した。滝谷が乗り込むシーンだ。小栗が全速力で走り、頭をそり上げた集団が襲いかかる。スタッフやほかのキャストから「怖ぇ~」「すげぇ」という声が上がる。角度や距離を変えて何度も何度も撮影するが、小栗のテンションは変わらない。結局、このシーンの撮影は午前8時から始まり、日没まで続いた。

 同作の出演はこれで最後になる。「後ろ姿を大きくしたい」と、ボクシングジムには3日に1回通い、加圧トレーニングも取り入れた。そのおかげで周囲からも見た目が変わったと言われ、8月から続いた酷暑の撮影も乗り切った。

 山田孝之、高岡蒼甫、桐谷健太ら1のキャストに加え、2では三浦春馬(18)が登場する。小栗は「いつまでも僕らのような20代後半がやっててもね。世代交代した方がいい」。三浦は「次世代クローズ、ぜひやりたいです。小栗さんが見てきた風景を見たいんです」と話す。小栗が作ったクローズ魂は確実に、引き継がれていく。
