New Action-Oriented Videos from CG Captain Harlock Film
A few days ago, we posted the first ever trailer for the upcoming CG animated film adaptation of Space Pirate Captain Harlock. And while said trailer did a good job of providing a glimpse of the space opera, it was a little bit lacking in action. Thankfully, Cinema Today has posted two more video clips designed to promote the film, this time around focusing more on the action scenes – we’re talking large scale space battles featuring the franchise’s trademark space skirmishes. You can check out the videos below:
…and of course, it’s not always about the space warships. Captain Harlock himself is one heck of a fighter, so the other clip features him using his sword to take down a bunch of gun-wielding enemies. The video actually shows how far we’ve come when it comes to CG animation. You’ll still encounter the uncanny valley, but you’ll have to be specifically looking for it.
Space Pirate Captain Harlock hits Japanese theaters on September 7 in 2D and 3D.
