The movie had already been postponed two weeks from a scheduled 29 April opening. Kakegurui the Movie: Zettai Zetsumei Russian Roulette or Desperate Russian Roulette is a sequel to the 2019 live-action film Kakegurui: Compulsive Gambler. Here’s a promo for the new film:
There have been manga, anime, and live-action drama versions of Kakegurui. The shonen series features Yumeko Jabami, a student at a school dominated by gambling.

The live-action TV series and the movies star Minami Hamabe (Emma in the live-action The Promised Neverland) in the lead role.
