Starblazers / Yamato live action movie

* Seems like a budget movie, but cool anyway.

well if nothing else the set design and the firing of the wave motion gun are true to the original.

Not too impressed with Takuya Kimura aka Mr. Brain... being the lead in this.

Details, details, details. Is this a real movie, or just a youtube thing?

According to what I've read, it's a real movie, produced in Japan, coming out this year.

Re: Starblazers / Yamato live action movie

Thank God you embedded that, because I couldn't figure out how to use those fancy hyper-links to the YouTube page.

This will probably be like a thousand other Japanese live-action adaptations: refreshingly close to the source material as far as plot and design elements go but rather deficient in most other areas.

A huge Starblazers movie would be cool, but I think we'll see a big Robotech movie before that ever happens.

Unfortunately, I have to agree.

I would be enormously pleased with both.

Re: Starblazers / Yamato live action movie

To me the real joy of Star Blazers was the long-form serialized story format. To a little kid, it just seemed to go on and on forever. Squeezing it down into 2 hours makes it just another low-budget sci-fi movie. I wish they had done a weekly TV show instead.

And do you think they would have dubbed a live-action TV series in English to go after the American scifi market?
