If I were still running Streamline Pictures, I’d be fighting to pick up a film like this. It looks friggin‘ cool! This new anime feature updates Shotaro Ishinomori’s 1960s manga, Cyborg 009, a classic character who has appeared in animated series and features in the 1960s and 70s, the 90s and 2000s. Kenji Kamiyama directs this reboot in 3D for Production I.G. – 009 Re: Cyborg will open simultaneously in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, and South Korea on October 27th.
Just for fun, compare the trailer above to the original 1966 Toei feature (below):
