I don’t profess to know very much about Japan’s “Gatchaman”, except that it looks kind of cool. And it looks a lot like all the other “guys in suits fighting alien monsters” shows that the island nation puts out about a few hundred per year, in animated and in live-action TV form. I’m not sure how this one’s going to look, but if you’re a fan of the show and are dying to see what they do with a big-budget live-action movie, then here’s the first teaser trailer for “Gatchaman”.
As for the plot, here ya go:
Set in the near future, Gatchaman follows the story five special agents of the International Science Organization in Tokyo, as they try to protect the world from the mysterious terrorist group who call themselves Galactor. With technology far surpasses that of humans, Galactor has declared war on the entire world and has already subjugated half of it. Trained to draw out the power from the mysterious crystal-like object called a “stone,” our five heroes will be called “Gatchaman.”
Sounds okay. I’d have to see more to make a proper judgement, of course.
“Gatchaman” stars Go Ayano, Ayame Goriki, Tatsuomi Hamada, Ryōhei Suzuki, Goro Kishitani, Ken Mitsuishi, Eriko Hatsune and Shido Nakamura.
Saving the world in theaters this August 24, 2013. In Japan first, of course.
