Captain Harlock

harlock

There’s a CGI based remake of Space Pirate Captain Harlock, based on Leiji Matsumoto’s original 1977-79 manga. The trailer opens with a quote from James Cameron:

“This unprecedented event is already legendary.”

Umm . . . really James? It sounds like that quote got translated back and forth a few times. For all the glorious manga style CGI space fighting action we get to see, listening to that music in the background is DISTRACTING as hell. “Be the Light” by ONE OK ROCK is not the music this Harlock fan was looking for.

Space Pirate Captain Harlcok is scheduled to open in Japan on Sept. 7th. We might get a look because the London-based film sales company GFM Films is on record about working on an international dub. How long that will take is still in question though. Most of us will likely just pirate a sub-titled version in the meantime.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think in the comments section below.

CH1Early this week, Toei announced that they will be releasing all new CGI versions of Capatain Harlock and Gaiking, two classic Animes from the 70s, that will be released worldwide at around 2012. Just recently they have released a few images for the two upcoming CGI projects and boy do they not disappoint. Harlock just looks bad ass and the image of Gaiking just makes the little boy that love giant robots inside me dance. We also learned that staff and works that worked on Mobile Suit Gundam UC, Appleseed, and Ninja Scroll are working on Captain Harlock while Light Studio, who worked on Avatar, Spider-man 2-3, and Benjamin Button, is working on Gaiking. You know being an anime fan, I always thought CGI would be the future for anime since you still get that cartoon feeling but looking so damn awesome. Check after the jump for more images. (more…)
