Well, it seems that Gundam isn’t the only one that’s borrowing music talent from America as the new trailer for the upcoming live action Space Battleship Yamato (Star Blazers) features a new single by Steven Tyler. That’s right the lead singer from Aerosmith will be singing a song for Japan’s space drama epic (as one of the earliest trailer describes the movie). Apparently Tyler created the song based on reading a translated script and watching some clips from the movie… yeah.

Anyway, the trailer features some more battle scenes and *gasp* death but it seems to be following the Anime. Also, all my worries about SMAP pretty boy, Takuya Kimura, playing the lead has pretty much disappeared as new trailers come out and reading more about the film. What do y’all think? You think we’ll see this come over to the states as the Star Blazers flick next year or will this be kept over in Japan with other live action anime films?
