Awhile back, it was brought to our attention that there is a Japanese movie being distributed by Warner Brothers that looks dangerously close to our film, Celluloid Soul. We posted our first synopsis and trailer around mid-2016. This Japanese film, which is entitled “Tonight at the Romance Theater” started posting their trailer around 2018, when the film was released.
We are now discussing with some attorneys if we have a plagiarism case worth pursuing here. One of the things I was asked to put together as ‘exhibit A’ is a side by side comparison of our trailers. We believe that not only does the plot seem somewhat similar, so do many of the shots. Click below and you can judge for yourself.
