Trailer of the Day: Gatchaman


gatchaman2

The five serve as agents of the International Science Organization in Tokyo in the near future. 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 to become special agents in a five-person team called “Gatchaman.” – Jefusion

I talked about this movie in a previous post but here is the long-awaited full trailer for the live-action version of the old Gatchaman/G-Force/Battle of the Planets cartoon..
I have to say I was impressed by what I saw…the costumes look cool and the effect for the Phoenix when it transforms into its flame state was pretty snazzy. I do have a minor gripe with Berg Kattse seemingly being a full-time lady instead of the androgynous transvestite from the old cartoon. And I still have no clue what the plot of this movie is but I plan on seeing it nonetheless. Now let’s just hope a subtitled trailer gets release in the near future.
