Spectacular Full Trailer For Live Action GATCHAMAN Arrives!
Destined to become one of the biggest Japanese blockbusters this year, the live-action adaptation of Tatsunoko's classic anime Gatchaman (aka Battle Of The Planets / G-Force) has come from an incredibly strong production team. Sato Toya (live-action Grave of the Fireflies, Gokusen, Kaiji 1 & 2) directs. Watanabe Yūsuke (20th Century Boys, Gantz) has written the script. Yamazaki Takashi (Returner, Always: Sunset on Third Street, Space Battleship Yamato) is the visual effects supervisor. Aramaki Shinji (Appleseed, Appleseed Ex Machina, Space Pirate Captain Harlock) has designed the characters and Koike Tatsuro (K-20) is the stunt coordinator.
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."
Japanese fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of Gatchaman in local theaters on August 24, and the spectacular new trailer explains why they are so excited.
