Space Battleship Yamato

by nickmamatas

You know what 2.2 billion yen and a SF-loving country gets you? A Space Battleship Yamato movie! Here’s the trailer:

2.2B yen is only about 25 million dollars—and I can’t believe I just typed “only” here—but the trailer for the live-action version of the popular anime series looks hot! Every cent is up on the screen. Maybe I could have done without the captain hat, but I suppose fans are as mad for canon in Japan as they are in the US. Space Battleship Yamato was bigger than Star Wars in Japan, so this live-action version is certainly overdue.

Also, here’s a fun way to annoy one’s otaku’s co-workers here at VIZ. Point to the trailer and say, “Hey look, it’s Star Blazers!”

    I think the trailer’s looks amazing. I know, I know, it’s only a trailer, but it definitely whet the appetite. I hope the film does well!
