Space Battleship Yamato teaser

Here's the teaser for the new live-action Space Battleship Yamato movie.

The director is Takashi Yamazaki, who did the entertaining time-travel film, Returner, so this should be pretty good. Space Battleship Yamato was an enjoyable anime, despite the nationalist overtones of resurrecting an Imperial battleship and the scientific silliness of sending it into space. (It would be slightly more plausible to do that with a submarine, as in Harry Harrison's The Daleth Effect (1970), but not much.) But this new movie looks like it's going to be a fun space opera romp and I'm pretty sure I'll enjoy it.
