Live-Action SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO
Wow. I was a huge fan of the 1970s animated series Space Cruiser Yamato, better known in the U.S. as Star Blazers. In Japan, there were three television seasons and five feature-length films, though the movies never received domestic release. The show was quite popular here in its day, and there's still a segment of anime fandom that keeps the memories alive. I haven't been much into anime, even the old classic stuff, for quite some time, but I think I'm really, really looking forward to getting a look at this. It's due for release in December.
