Remember when you said you wanted a live action Battle of the Planets movie?

Yeah, me neither, but that hasn’t stopped Toho Company from taking the beloved manga/anime series, Gatchaman, and turning it into a full on movie.

I don’t know what they are saying, I don’t know what is going on, but damn, if I don’t want to see this right now!

  1. Glad Hollywood wasn’t behind this, otherwise it would have been total camp with Jonah Hill as 7-Zark-7

  2. I’m both surprised and relieved that they didn’t go a little more Super Sentai with the costumes, particularly the helmets. Ever since the Jetman continuation manga changed their helmets to a look closer to Gatchaman (which is fitting as it was part of the inspiration for Jetman), I always worried a live-action Gatchaman would have full helmets.

    And I’m so VERY glad Hollywood didn’t do this.
