The latest trailer for the live-action Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure movie finally reveals its stands

2 min read


Its been a manga, various anime series and the best memes (RAAAAAAAAAAAAAI). This August, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure finally becomes something else: A proper live-action movie. Directed by Takashi Miike, the film itself is based on the Diamond is Unbreakable arc of Jojo that stars Josuke Higashikata in the protagonist role.

If you have no idea what I’m typing, here’s the gist of it: Imagine select high school kids being able to fight wars with spiritual manifestations known as Stands who also have some of the wildest powers possible. Here’s a new trailer for Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, which gives a slightly longer glimpse at the Stands:

Here’s the actual proper trailer, because I never ever get tired of abusing that joke above:

I dig it. The idea of pure psychic power manifesting behind you always made the Jojo manga that much cooler than anything else in the genre, although it was the various references to rock ‘n roll music that always made me smile. Josuke’s Stand is particularly cool, a spirit that can repair anything it touches back to its pristine condition. You’d think that such an ability would be pointless in a fight, but you’d also be quite wrong. Called Crazy Diamond (Thanks Pink Floyd!), it does have some offensive ability but it’s the wily nature of Josuke and his creativity that makes his Stand so dangerous.

The other Stand glimpsed in the trailer? That’s Aqua Necklace, which can disguise itself as any liquid and possess people. Like I said, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure is weird stuff and the other stands like Killer Queen and Red Hot Chilli Pepper happen to have even weirder powers. Man, I can’t wait for this flick to make it’s way to our shores eventually, silly hair and all.

If you’re still properly confused as to what I’ve been waxing lyrical about, then here’s a guide to Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure written by a devilishly handsome hack whose name rhymes with Sharon Honk Phase.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    But the anime and manga have guys that are so built, theyr basically space marines.
    It just looks wrong to have Jojo and co being 4ft tall wimps.

    Dio? DIO?!?

    From what I’ve heard, Dio has rocked, for a long long time. But now it’s time for him to pass the torch.

    • Good thing I’m off to the city of fallen angels this week, where the ocean meets the sand.

        I’m sure you’ll form a strong alliance. And perhaps even the world’s most awesome band.
