Watch: Awesomely Epic 'Space Battleship Yamato' Full Trailer
On the first day of the year, we featured a TV spot for the live-action version of the Japanese anime Space Battleship Yamato, directed by Takashi Yamazaki, an epic science fiction space story about the crew of the battleship Yamato who set out on a journey to acquire a device that can heal ravaged Earth. The trailer was discovered by Twitch and is one of the Japanese non-subtitled videos with all kinds of images overlayed on top of the trailer. However, there is some awesome footage found in there, so if you are a sci-fi or Space Battleship Yamato fan, definitely check this out. Although we have no clue when it'll be coming to the US.

As of this moment, Space Battleship Yamato (also known as Star Blazers when it was brought to the US in the 80s), will hit theaters in Japan in December of 2010, about half a year from now. Its budget is around 2 billion yen (about $20 million) and will be the first in the franchise to use the "Space Battleship Yamato" English title domestically in an effort to appeal to international audiences as early as possible. I don't know much about this, but it looks awesome so far, and I'm hoping it won't take too long to hit US theaters (as in, I hope we don't have to wait until late 2011 to see this).
