Back in Black; Gantz Live-Action Trailer

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Dec 2, 2010 in Animation, Cinema |

I actually can’t remember the last time this has happened, but it looks like the upcoming live-action adapation of  Hiroya Oku’s action-packed manga, Gantz, will be hitting US theaters a week ahead of Japan. Unfortunately, if you’re one of those people who can’t take dubs, you may be out of luck. While the film will show on over 300 screens nationwide, none of them are currently scheduled to be subtitled. Still, it looks amazing and might be worth checking out. The film centers around a boy and his friend who end up dying, only to be revived for the sole-purpose of hunting hostile aliens. While there was an anime, the film itself will be based on the original manga and is currently set for release on January 20th.
