Trailer & poster for movie “Tomorrow’s Dinner Table”

Trailer and poster added for movie “Tomorrow’s Dinner Table” starring Miho Kanno, Mitsuki Takahata, & Machiko Ono. After the first scene flashes a woman sitting behind glass (presumably the visiting room of a prison), the trailer shows three mothers raising their sons. Each of the mothers has a son named Yu. The trailer then cuts to a far darker tone with narration that states “One day, one Yu was murdered by his mother.” Movie is based on 2016 novel “Ashita no Shokutaku” by Michiko Yazuki and directed by Takahisa Zeze.

“Tomorrow’s Dinner Table” will be released May 28, 2021 in Japan.
