Thanks to Scikajiu from Henshin Justice!

Here's the information from SciFi Japan Media:

February 27, 2007: KAMEN RIDER FIRST (Kamen Raida the First, 2005)
Takeshi Hongo is a person of extraordinarily keen intellect, a young man with great promise for the future… but that future is snuffed out by a secret society called Shocker. They use cyborgs created in all manner of experiments in an attempt to take over the world. Hongo is made into a cyborg with the abilities of a locust– Masked Rider 1– but realizes he is being controlled by evil forces and is able to escape. Shocker views Hongo as a traitor and sends the headstrong cyborg Hayato Ichimonji– Masked Rider 2– to assassinate him. Hongo and Ichimonji are evenly matched and fight to a standstill. Shocker grows impatient, and orders the cyborgs Snake and Cobra to kill both Riders.

MASKED RIDER first appeared on television screens on April 3, 1971. The two heroes were adored by youngsters and launched a franchise that is still going strong 35 years later. KAMEN RIDER FIRST is an adaptation of the original manga by Shotaro Ishinomori. This film is neither a sequel nor a remake, but a new interpretation of Ishinomori’s image of the Masked Rider. Media Blasters’ release will be a 2-disc set of the 90 minute long feature film with Japanese audio and removable English subtitles. Complete DVD specs tba. SRP $29.95
