Last year, Shinichiro Ueda made Japanese film history with “One Cut of the Dead,” a zombie comedy he scripted and directed. Opening in just two Tokyo theaters in June, 2018, the film ended up earning ¥3.21 billion — or more than 1,000 times its ¥3 million budget.

Expectations are accordingly high for Ueda’s follow-up, “Aesop’s Game,” a comedy he co-directed with Naoya Asanuma and Yuya Nakaizumi. This trio also contributed segments to the 2015 anthology film “Neko Bun No. 4.”
