Abstract

Newly emerging film franchising practices in Japan are collapsing the boundaries between media productions, as Japan’s media industries work in collaboration to create large transmedia intertexts. This article examines the promotional discourses circulating around Japanese franchise film releases in order to understand how these new franchising practices are affecting the roles and status of popular cinema within contemporary Japanese culture.
