Venice 2013: Watch An Exclusive Clip From HARLOCK: SPACE PIRATE 3D

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Appleseed director Arakamki Shinji debuts his adaptation of classic manga and anime series Space Pirate Captain Harlock - now dubbed Harlock: Space Pirate 3D for the English speaking world - on Tuesday as part of the Venice Film Festival and Twitch is proud to present an exclusive new clip from the film.

Captain Harlock is the one man standing between the corrupt Gaia Coalition and their quest for complete intergalactic rule. Seeking revenge against those who wronged both mankind and himself, the mysterious space pirate roams the universe in his battle cruiser, the Arcadia, defiantly attacking and pillaging enemy ships. Gaia Fleet leader Ezra sends his younger brother, Logan/Yama, to infiltrate the Arcadia and assassinate Harlock. But Logan/Yama will soon discover that things are not always what they seem, and that legends are born for a reason. Harlock pushes his loyal crew forward in his death-defying mission to undo the "Nodes of Time" and reverse the Earth to an age when still inhabited by humans. It is the year 2977 and 500 billion displaced humans long to return to the planet they still refer to as home. The rebellious Captain Harlock and his trusted crew are mankind's only hope of one day righting the Coalition's wrongs.
Created using the same motion capture technology Aramaki pioneered with Appleseed and with the collaboration of artists known for their work with Final Fantasy producers Square Enix, this promises to be one of the most technically advanced animated features ever made. Manga artist Matsumoto Leiji and voice actor Miura Haruma will join the director at the premiere. Check the clip below.

    At last... The almost inevitable Space Pirates movie. I bet there are loads of screenwriters saying.

    "I had that idea!"

    looks like a high class film, but you gotta love the fight scenes where the guy appears to be around 40 yards away running into machine gun fire and not one bullet grazed his sword or his person.
