Space Battleship Yamato – Live Action Movie

While highly unrealistic, I enjoyed Space Battleship Yamato a lot, when I was a kid. I knew this anime as Star Blazers (the American animated television series adaptation) where the spaceship was renamed Argo. Star Blazers was a fun anime, featuring epic space battles and voyages into the unknown, and I loved the opening and closing themes.

After so many years, the show is still remembered by fans.

And now there are awesome news for the fans of the show: Space Battleship Yamato is coming back as a live action movie, based on the original series. It is set to be released in Japan on December 1, 2010, but a trailer is already available:
