Latest ‘Space Battleship Yamato’ Trailer Brings the Awesome

I don’t know about you, but I really liked the show Star Blazers when I was younger. Later, I found out it was adapted from a Japanese series called Space Cruiser Yamato and since that time I’ve watched pretty much all of the animated versions of this show I can find.

Now, it seems an intrepid band of Japanese filmmakers has made a live-action version of the story and bonus, it looks awesome. The film, a 2.2 billion yen production under the direction of Takashi Yamazaki looks like it follows the Yamato story pretty closely and features all of the great characters and situations I remember fondly from the shows.

Sadly, the film doesn’t have a U.S. release date as of yet. However, if more people get a chance to see this great trailer I’m sure it will be just a matter of time before we see this film here in the States. Or, I can always take a trip to Japan and see the film when it comes out on December 1st. Who’s with me?

Check out the trailer after the break. Yes, we realize it’s a scaled version. We’ll look for a bigger one and bring it to you if we can find it.
