If, like me, you were a fan of the old school animated series Star Blazers then you’ve probably heard they’re making a live action version of the series called Space Battleship Yamato. In fact, if you’re a regular reader of this site, you’ve already seen the first trailer for the movie and got some info about it.
But if you thought that earlier trailer was cool, you ain’t seen nothing yet. This latest one brings everything you would expect from a movie like this including a glimpse of the show’s signature weapon: The Wave Motion Gun. Plus, it’s got all the action, drama, suspense and characters you remember from the anime series all in a pretty impressive package.
As I mentioned previously, the film doesn’t have an official U.S. release date. However, I’m sure it will eventually make its way here so those of us looking forward to it will be able to see it. Or, if by some chance the filmmakers are reading this article, please feel free to send us a copy. We promise to give it a thorough review. Domo Arigato.
Check out the trailer after the jump.
