Here's an action-packed trailer for a badass looking CG animated film called Space Pirate Captain Harlock. This is a feature film adaptation of the popular Japanese manga series. The manga was created by Leiji Matsumoto in 1978, and spawned a TV anime series, a few features, and the sequel called Arcadia of My Youth: Endless Orbit SSX.
The story follow Captain Harlock as he fights for humanity with his 40 crew members aboard the invincible space battleship Arcadia.
The script was written by Harutoshi Fukui (Mobile Suit Gundam UC novels, live-action Bōkoku no Aegis) and was developed to reflect the themes of modern society. It was directed by Shinji Aramaki (Appleseed) with a budget of $30 million. The movie should be released in Japan sometime this fall. I'm excited to eventually get to see it when it comes to the states.
