Still a year out, the first tv spot has dropped for this long awaited manga adaptation and I have to say it looks pretty rad.

This is supposed to be the plot:
Set in 2220, the pic will depict the evacuation of 300 million people from Earth to avoid certain death from an expanding black hole. The Yamato, a space battleship, is leading the rescue fleet when it is attacked by an alien force.

Matt, it's Japanese. You do know that Space Battleship Yamato (with bearded captain and the battleship Yamato) predates Starcraft by some two decades, right?

I think the plot synopsis written above is actually for the new animated film, not the live-action one.

I just fell in love with this! Looks like it was made in the 60s. Great models and costumes. The world needs more international space opera.

@Matt: the StarCraft captain character is an homage to Captain Henry Gloval from the Macross (Robotech) cartoon, which is somewhat similar to Space Battleship Yamato (Star Blazers).

@Gerwalk78: A Macross live action movie is being done. Tobey McGuire's production company bought the rights to make a live-action Robotech movie, which IMDB has listed as being in pre-production with a planned 2012 release.

I hope the storyline is better than the original "Star Blazers." Am rewatching that now and it is just awful
