SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO or STAR BLAZERS, whatever it is... here's the new trailer!

So I'm pretty sure that every man, woman, child and dumb animal on Earth has by now seen the staggeringly excellent trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Meanwhile, our friends in Japan have just unloaded something just as eyeball-blowing spectacular: a new trailer for the Space Battleship Yamato (better known as Star Blazers on this side of the pond) live action movie! There was a teaser released earlier this year, but this one shows us much more.

One thing I'm worried about: how is the story from Season 1 of the animated series going to be compressed into one motion picture? Maybe Space Battleship Yamato/Star Blazers could become a live-action TV adaptation with modern technology. Perhaps on HBO? Then they wouldn't have to pretend that Dr. Sane was drunk on "spring water", heh-heh...

Anyhoo, what glorious eye candy awaits us from the Land of the Rising Sun! Can't wait to see this.

Would love to see them do the same treatment to Robotech Macross series...

There was a kids cartoon that had a space battleship, don't recall the name though

Why do the butchered Robotech when they can do justice to the original Macross?
