Japan's greatest hero returns to fight giant rubber-suited monsters

Japan's Ultra Series just won't die. The superhero franchise is celebrating 45 years of campy sci-fi action that culminates in the new film Ultraman Saga. The movie's first trailer has been released and it has monsters, masked heroes and explosions—lots of explosions!

The first trailer for Ultraman Saga has all the over-the-top action we know and love. The movie features appearances from Ultraman Zero, Ultraman Dyna and Ultraman Cosmos, plus the five Ultra Brothers and the newbie Ultraman Saga. The group have their work cut out for them as they go against the dangerous Hyper Setton and his monstrous army.

Ultraman Saga is a sequel to 2010's Ultraman Zero: The Revenge of Belial. And the latest film's tagline is "We Still Have Glittering Hope!!" Despite the repetitive nature of the series, with its various heroes and villains, people can't let it go. Ultraman Saga's first trailer takes us back to the days of bad lighting, old-school effects and the excessive use of smoke machines.

Watch the video below and tell us what you think of the first look.

Ultraman Saga will be released on March 24.
