Worth Watching - Dec 12: Kazuaki Kiriya's Goemon Teaser Trailer
Whoa! I don't really know what this is, but considering even I was blown away, I had to share it. Thanks to Twitch we've got the first teaser trailer for a Japanese film called Goemon. It comes from visionary filmmaker Kazuaki Kiriya, who a few may recognize from a 2004 film called Casshern. Kiriya uses some sort of beautiful combination of CGI and live-action stunt work to make a film that looks like a full length video game cinematic. Although this teaser trailer doesn't show much, I still really want to see it, as I'm just enjoying the hell out of his unique visual style. Definitely take a look at this today if you've got the time!

Goemon is both written and directed by Japanese filmmaker Kazuaki Kiriya, of only Casshern previously. The screenplay was co-written by Kiriya and Tetsurô Takita. The film hits theaters in Japan next May, but no word on when we'll see it in the US just yet. Apparently Warner Brothers is releasing this in theaters over here as well, so I expect we'll hear more sometime soon. In the meantime, check out their website.
