Sony Pictures began streaming a clip on Wednesday from Gokushufudō the Cinema, the live-action film of Kousuke Oono‘s The Way of the Househusband (Gokushufudō) manga. The clip shows Tatsu visiting the office of Kondō’s K Planning real estate company to ask for fees for the local neighborhood association, while Kondō acts like a big-shot Italian mafia boss, complete with spouting word after word of Italian.


The film will open on June 3.
