The first 10 minutes of Yamato 2199 have been previewed on Japanese TV. This remake of the 1974 series is going to be a series of 7 THEATRICAL releases over the next year or two. Interestingly, aside from the possibility of other specials there won't be a TV release for at least 2 years.

Be sure to hit "CC" for the subtitles! And hit the fullscreen option to enbigulate. It's a good quality clip.

A few quick observations:

There is a new trailer out for Ridley Scott's Prometheus. This looks cool too!

The trailer for The Hobbit also looks VERY good.

I'd missed the Hobbit trailer until I stumbled upon it here. Which reminds me that Gone to Amerikay is out and getting rave reviews in places as diverse as the Wall Street Journal and The Comics Bulletin.

From what I gather, these "movies" are just the eventual TV episodes edited together. The first is the first two episodes & the others will each consist of 4 episodes. I also gather the "theatrical" release is pretty limited. The first blu ray release is the end of May & it it will be subtitled in English. The US & Japan are both Region A, so there wont even be any region coding issues. I'll be pre-ordering this.
