New Space Battleship Yamato trailer made of epic space opera WIN

Here's the good news—we just saw the new trailer for Space Battleship Yamato, and it looks like director Takashi Yamazaki's 2.2-billion-yen budget was well spent. Space Battleship Yamato could surprise us all by being one of the best sci-fi movies of the year.

But here's the bad news—the film, a live-action adaptation of the original anime TV series, doesn't have a U.S. release date, so for now the only way to see it when it opens Dec. 1 is for those of us who don't already live there to head to Japan.

After seeing the trailer, though, we're ready to book our tickets now. How about you?
