Japanese trailer for Space Battleship Yamato, starring Kimura Takuya, Meisa Kuroki and Tsutomu Yamazaki etc. The movie will premiere on December 1.
Based on the iconic anime franchise, the story is set in year 2199 where earth is under siege by “foreign” invaders and is facing destruction due to radioactive warfare. And the Space Battleship Yamato is human race’s last hope of survival.
The time-line fits well with renowned astrophysicist Stephen Hawking’s prediction that our planet could face extinction in two centuries, and that humans must move to space to survive. Perhaps he was a fan of the original anime series lol.
