CUTIE HONEY: TEARS Theatrical Trailer Arrives

When the first teaser for Asai Takeshi's Cutie Honey: Tears - the big screen revival of the iconic Nagai Go character last seen in Anno Hideaki's 2004 adaptation - arrived back in April it provoked some fairly strong (and split) reactions among fans surprised by its slick, digital feel and overall darker take on the charcter. And those splits are likely to only deepen nw that the full theatrical trailer has arrived.

Offering a much larger and more detailed look both at the character and the world of the film this new trailer serves to reinforce the first impressions made by the teaser. While Anno presented a bubblegum pop take on the Cutie Honey character - a fashionable android battling evil - Asai is definitely pushing in a very different direction.  Production values and scale on this new trailer look significantly better than on the previous teaser - and a pretty firm notch above the mean for most Japanese productions these days - but time will tell whether the glossy finish is enough to win people over to this take on the character.

Check out the trailer below!

To me, this stuff only works when it's extremely goofy in it's execution. The material is silly beyond measure, so why they try to make it darker and more serious is beyond me.

I loved the first 2004, just because of it's silliness! (and the fun / annoying "papaya!" music!)

The lack of gratuitous nudity is points against either version of Cutie Honey (!)

HONEY FLASH!!! without actual flashing seems, well....not very flashy at all

The 2004 was fun for what it was.
