Slick CGI-rific Full Trailer for the Gatchaman Live-Action Movie


Gatchaman (2013) Movie Image

I don’t know what “Gatchaman” is, so this could be completely going against the original anime/manga/source material, but as purely an outsider and layman, this first full-length trailer for Toya Sato’s live-action “Gatchaman” movie looks pretty rad. It also looks like Toho put a lot of money into this thing, and the suits actually look quite cool. But like I said, not an original fan, so I wouldn’t know how much they’ve deviated from the original product.

In any case, check out the full-length trailer (unfortunately it’s in Japanese) and a smaller 30-second spot, probably a preview of the full-length trailer.

The five serve as agents of the International Science Organization in Tokyo at the beginning of the 21st century. Galactor, a mysterious group whose technology far surpasses that of humans, has declared war on the entire world and has already subjugated half of it. A mysterious crystal-like object called a “stone,” is humanity’s only hope. Those who are able to draw out the power of the “stones” are forced to train as Earth’s ultimate weapon, a five-person team called “Gatchaman.”

The movie stars Tori Matsuzaka, Gō Ayano, Ayame Gōriki, Tatsuomi Hamada, and Ryōhei Suzuki.

Japan gets it later this August.

    Hrmm, im not happy with their suits. First their helmets should look more bird-like and slick. Second their capes, should feather out. Also their suits should be tighter, looks too baggy. :/

    Nix, you never watched “Battle of the Planets” growing up? That was the re-dubbed American version of this show.
