Live-action anime?! Casshern


 Share

Recommended Posts

Great Scott! Take the advice of Penny Arcade's Tycho and watch the entire trailer!

There's a web site for the film at http://casshern.com. But the content is also in Japanese (don't let the English navigation fool you).

 

Quit whatever you're doing, it's not important. ... Run over the roof of the car, go home, and open up a browser.

 

Look at this trailer for a movie called Casshern. I have no idea what's going on, I think it's from Japan. It's startling how often those two things go together.

I don't care if they never translate this into English, I will purchase it and learn Japanese.

i'm sure it'll be available on ebay with horrible taiwanese translated engrish subtitltes if nothing else [/b]

I once saw Porky's dubbed into Polish, so poorly that you could still hear the English (but not make it out), with Russian subtitles. In a theater in Ukraine.

Holy f***ing s**t. :shock:

 

It's only a matter of time before this gets picked up for US release. I think we all know how well Cassern would do here!

Hell, we're still waiting for Hero to get a theatrical release, and that is a beautiful movie with some absolutely incredible fight scenes. I think there is definately potential for something like Casshern to do very well, especially with the increasing popularity of anime and manga, but if it gets delayed to the pooint where alot of people have already imported DVD's of it like happens with most good Japanese and Hong Kong flicks, then interest will probably have passed by. Which really sucks, s this looks alot more interesting than much of the schlock Hollywood tends to put out as summer action flicks.

I don't know anything Hero, but that's crazy they wont import it here. You'd think there would be some studio here dying for the rights to release Casshern domestically.

Hero was supposed to be getting a theatrical run in the US this spring, Miramax were being idiots about it, but apparently Quentin Tarantino has stepped in recently to make sure this eventually gets a release.

 

I really hope someone does pick up Casshern. It looks too good not to get a decent translation with good voice acting and a US theatrical run.

..and for those that didn't catch that...

Just a DVD release with subtitles please. I'd love a theatrical release but hopes are not high (thought it should damn well get one!). I'd be all over this in a heart beat!

Wondering, with that movie "Hero," why does the trailer for the U.S. dubbed version say it's by Quentin Tarantino?

 

http://www.apple.com/trailers/miramax/hero/

 

Seems more like they just arranged some deal with him to use his name to attract U.S. viewers.

 

IMDB doesn't have "Hero" as a piece directed by him on his credits. It just shows his next film as "Inglorious Bastards," due in 2006.

Well, he may simply have directed the dubbing of the movie.

 

I don't believe that would be enough to get him in the credits, but I have no idea how that works, so if Dan reads this I know he'll have an answer that is actually knowledge-based :P.

 

He didn't direct-direct though, I think it's quite fair to assume.
