Alien invasion! – Before We Vanish (2017)

Three aliens take over human bodies as they plot to invade the world in Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s ‘Before We Vanish’ (2017)! Weekly newspaper journalist Sakurai (Hiroki Hasegawa) gets caught up in the plan of two out of three aliens to invade the Earth. These aliens took over the bodies of high schooler Akira (Yuri Tsunematsu) and young man Amano (Mahiro Takasugi), allowing them to roam the city unassumingly. Sakurai is roped in as their ‘guide’, fetching materials for the transmitter the aliens are building.


Sometime before this scene, Sakurai realizes that he might be in danger even though he’s supposedly working for the aliens. He begins to think about which side to pick. After the third alien, Shinji (Ryuhei Matsuda), chooses his host’s wife instead of his alien comrades, Sakurai tries to side with humans. Outside the mall, he shouts to a crowd of people that Amano, the young man he was with, is an alien and is planning to wipe out humanity. Of course, no one believes him. He goes back to Amano, defeated. Amano calmly asks him if he’s still coming along with him, to which Sakurai agrees. He has given up convincing people already.
