Witness the Awesome of This New Gantz Live-Action trailer

Japanese actors + black vinyl = awesome

I had never read the Gantz manga before I heard that a live action film was being made. However, once I saw the actors in it, I was one hundred percent enrolled to see the movie and knew I had to catch up on the source material first. I fell in love, and since then I've been waiting with bated breath for more news of when the Gantz film would be coming our way. Or Japan's way, at least.
This new trailer is the first official one and really got my engines revving. Starring Kazunari Ninomiya (
Ōoku ), Ken'ichi Matsuyama ( Death Note, Detroit Metal City) and Yuriko Yoshitaka (Tokyo DOGS), the film is slated to open in January 2011 and will get a sequel as well. The storyline, like the manga, follows the adventures of two men who return to life after a horrible subway accident and are forced to act in missions that are dangerous and mysterious. Sounds so good! I can't wait to see more.

@godeater: Which one? Anime is crap, manga is fantastic. Don't judge one by the other.
I for one am looking forward to this.

It's been years.  Finally, another reason to get obsessed about Gantz. 
Check out my review of the anime series.

Huh I keep forgetting that the Manga is often better than the Anime.  I should try and find the Manga.

Christ, they're already introducing the vampires? Well, that's certainly going to mix up the story some.

I hated the anime soooo much but since people are saying the manga is better maybe I'll check that out. I thought that it was an interesting premise but the execution was poor.
