director Arakamki Shinji debuts his adaptation of classic manga and anime series Space Pirate Captain Harlock
- now dubbed Harlock: Space Pirate 3D
for the English speaking world - on Tuesday as part of the Venice Film Festival and ScreenAnarchy is proud to present an exclusive new clip from the film.
Captain Harlock is the one man standing between the corrupt Gaia
Coalition and their quest for complete intergalactic rule. Seeking
revenge against those who wronged both mankind and himself, the
mysterious space pirate roams the universe in his battle cruiser, the
Arcadia, defiantly attacking and pillaging enemy ships. Gaia Fleet
leader Ezra sends his younger brother, Logan/Yama, to infiltrate the
Arcadia and assassinate Harlock. But Logan/Yama will soon discover that
things are not always what they seem, and that legends are born for a
reason. Harlock pushes his loyal crew forward in his death-defying
mission to undo the "Nodes of Time" and reverse the Earth to an age when
still inhabited by humans. It is the year 2977 and 500 billion
displaced humans long to return to the planet they still refer to as
home. The rebellious Captain Harlock and his trusted crew are mankind's
only hope of one day righting the Coalition's wrongs.
Created using the same motion capture technology Aramaki pioneered with Appleseed
and with the collaboration of artists known for their work with Final Fantasy
producers Square Enix, this promises to be one of the most technically advanced animated features ever made. Manga artist Matsumoto Leiji and voice actor Miura Haruma will join the director at the premiere. Check the clip below.
