Watch: New Epic Teaser/Trailer for Space Battleship Yamato
Love Lives! Uh, is that Aerosmith's Steven Tyler singing the Space Battleship Yamato theme? Why yes it is! Our friends at Vlicious recently found this new video featuring a combo teaser (35 seconds long) and new trailer (100 seconds long) for the hugely epic Japanese live-action adaptation of the anime Space Battleship Yamato. We already featured another early trailer for this back in June, but this one has tons of insane new footage in it. I don't know if there's any real narrative to the footage, as if they just threw every visual effects shot that is finished into a blender and this is what we get. But I still want to see it, I totally love space epics!
Watch the new Japanese teaser/trailer combo for Takashi Yamazaki's Space Battleship Yamato:
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, in just a few months. Its budget was 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).
