If you grew up on the spacefaring thrills and drama of Space Cruiser Yamato (or Star Blazers in the U.S.), then this new trailer for the new Yamato film will get your blood pumping nicely.

We weren't too impressed with the longer, somewhat stately trailer for the new Yamato movie back in June. But this new trailer, (which seems to be two trailers stuck together) hits all the right notes — there's some of the same footage of Yamato bursting out of the ice, plus deadly comets and evil snarling people. Derek Wildstar looks at a picture of his fallen captain. And then — space battles! Explosions! Lasers and missiles flying in the void! And finally... yes! The wave motion gun!

It really doesn't take much to make us happy. [Fanboy.com]
