Live Action Gatchaman, aka Battle of the Planets – New trailer brings the action


Gatchaman team

We posted the teaser trailer for Gatchman back in April (see it here) and now this new trailer has been released which gives us a better look at the film.

The five serve as agents of the International Science Organization in Tokyo in the near future. Galactor, a mysterious group whose technology far surpasses that of humans, has declared war on the entire world and has already subjugated half of it. A mysterious crystal-like object called a “stone,” is humanity’s only hope. Those who are able to draw out the power of the “stones” are forced to train to become special agents in a five-person team called “Gatchaman.”

It is looking kind of cool with some cool effects on show (including a brief look at the fiery Phoenix!)


Just in case you are wondering, Bump of Chicken is the name of the band singing the theme song.
