Finally!  A Decent Trailer For Miike's YATTERMAN!

No doubt about it, I love me some kid-friendly Takashi Miike. Yes, I love the adult version, too, but when Miike's in kid mode he just somehow taps into this sense of lunacy that reminds me of nothing so much of those crazy, physics-defying Tex Avery Road Runner cartoons and I love every minute.

Which brings us to Yatterman, Miike's big budget adaptation of the popular manga and anime series. It's big, goofy, birghtly colored and, until now, Miike has released only two trailers that contain basically a single shot each. But no more! It's still technically a teaser but there's a brand new one out there and this one runs a full minute and shows off characters, mecha and environments. Fun? You betcha. Check out all three teasers below the break.

"Yatterman" and "Crows Zero II" ... seems like Miike is going straight ... for the vault of the box office in 2009 ... ;)

Crows 0 was good.

Can't say that I'm feeling this one. I liked Yokai, but this just seems beyond goofy. Perhaps if it was in context of the story it would be better...

This has that no-holds-barred, jokester feel of DOA3 (also CGI-heavy.) it's less self-important than Yokai = more variety for us :D

True, Yokai took itself too seriously at some points, my favorite parts of that film are the ones where Miike really sets free the movie to be as wacky as possible.
