Live Action Gatchaman Trailer Hits!


The first full trailer has hit for the live action adaptation of the classic anime and manga series Gatchaman. Adapted in the United States under multiple titles (Battle of the Planets, G-Force, Eagle Riders, etc.), Gatchaman deals with a team of bird-themed science ninjas who work to defend the earth from threats, most notably Galactor. The new trailer has me pretty pumped; effects look good, the tone seems consistent with the source, and I have a lot of love for the original anime and subsequent adaptations. The costumes seem a bit off though, but that certainly isn’t a deal breaker. Gatchaman hits Japanese cinemas this August. –Cesar
