Production company Lifelike Pictures on Tuesday released three posters on the official Instagram account of Wiro Sableng, one of the most anticipated Indonesian films of the year.
The posters reveal the film's main characters Wiro Sableng (Vino G Bastian), Bujang Gila Tapak Sakti (Fariz Alfarazi) and Anggini (Sherina Munaf) in costumes designed by Adrianto Sinaga, along with a brief description.
Lifelike Pictures said in a press release that the three posters were the first in a series of feature posters for Wiro Sableng that would be released gradually over the next few months.
Wiro Sableng is a warrior with a unique, humorous personality who loves to laugh at himself. Cheeky, funny and slightly off-kilter, Wiro is nevertheless a smart and powerful warrior. He was raised by his teacher and mentor, Sinto Gendeng, on the peak of Mount Gede. It is from Sinto that Wiro inherits his weapon, the mighty axe Kapak Maut Naga Geni 212.

Bujang Gila Tapak Sakti is a chubby warrior who loves to wear his clothes inside out and front-to-back and always carries his trusty folding fan. Despite his comic behavior, Bujang Gila Tapak Sakti has remarkable fighting skills.
Wiro Sableng also stars Sherina Munaf as Anggini, who returns to the big screen for the first time since she made her debut 17 years ago. Anggini, the protégé of Dewa Tuak and dressed in purple, is an independent warrior who uses her purple silk scarf and silver nails as weapons.
Based on Bastian Tito’s novel, Wiro Sableng is a collaboration between Lifelike Pictures and Fox International Productions, a division of 20th Century Fox. The film is slated to premiere in September.
