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).

    Loved the first trailer, and this one is even better. The fact there's little to no English actually makes the visual storytelling more impressive. You get a great sense of the storyline and dramatic pull from the actors. I hope this gets a US release.
  • Jeff Spicoli
    i hope this dont get a hollywood remake... but a bollywood remake would be interesting
  • Yoi
    This is an insult to battlestar galactica.
  • tivdatsun
    Since I'm a fan of the original Star Blazers, this looks looks just like Star Blazers.
  • jjboldt
    Ummm, okay. Song is cheesy and even the other music made this hard to enjoy.
  • Singular
    Big fan when I was a kid. Probably will be better than the US version that Disney had planned turning it into a Dirty Dozen-type situation. But of course the Japanese do great anime but their live action these days aren't up to par with Hollywood. Old Godzilla movies were better.
  • LifeLiquid
    #10 You read my mind. I guarantee it will be a remake. Hollywood remakes anything just because they ran out of ideas.
  • lando
    looks badass
  • Looks really funny. But definitely worth a watch. That music was RAWSOME!
  • deadpool72

  • jasonmd2020

  • florian
  • tEDDY bESS

  • jmack

  • David Banner
    I love the Captain's Hat :)
  • Josef
    This looks awesome.
  • J.chow
    That's looks good!! That's what I'm talking about..DO NOT RUIN THE LOOK OF THE ORIGINAL!!
  • The anime was one of my favourite ever. I have big big expectations for the movie. It is amazing what you can achieve with a "small" budget.
  • Shelby
    Cant go wrong with aerosmith and a space flick! (armageddon) Looks like a mix of Star wars, amrageddon, and sunshine. Count me in!
  • Daiteechu
