The Hong Kong Trailer for Space Battleship Yamato Has Landed


Since Takashi Yamazaki’s live-action adaptation of the popular anime series “Space Battleship Yamato” is headed to Hong Kong theaters next month, a brand-new trailer has worked its way up from the depths of the Interwebs. Although I know next to nothing about the program, I must say that I’m impressed with every single trailer I’ve stumbled across thus far. Hopefully and English-subtitled DVD is in the works for later this year. While we’re waiting, feel free to indulge in the embedded trailer, which arrives courtesy of the folks over at 24 Frames per Second.

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at)

    Whoever is singing in this trailer is really giving it all the Rod Stewart/Bon jovi he can muster. Movie looks sweet though.

      I think that’s Steven Tyler. I seem to remember hearing that he recorded the theme song.

    When this will be worldwide available? Here in Brazil there are a lot of fans dying for this movie (and the 2009 animation as well)!

    It’s in the theaters now in Hong Kong but does NOT have English subtitles. It’s in Japanese with Chinese subtitles, at least at the half dozen theaters I checked.
