The first official trailer for the Japanese drama titled The Great War of Archimedes, is out. The film originally opened in Japan back in 2019 and now will release in USA.
The Great War of Archimedes, based on the 2015 manga series “Archimedes no Taisen," is a dramatized depiction of the behind-the-scenes struggles of the Japanese Navy while building the Yamato, the largest battleship in the world, prior to WWII.
The film is produced by Toho, and directed by Takashi Yamazaki. The film stars Suda Masaki, Emoto Tasuku, Hamabe Minami, Shofukutei Tsurube, Kobayashi Katsuya, and Hiroshi Tachi as Admiral Yamamoto.
Pre-World War II, the Japanese Navy commissioned the design and creation of the impressive "supership" Yamato, strongly opposed by a top official insisting on more strategic and battle-ready warships. After being ignored without cause, Admiral Yamamoto (Hiroshi Tachi) recruits a math genius to help uncover what he soon suspects is a massive conspiracy.
Well Go USA will release Yamazaki's The Great War of Archimedes direct-to-VOD in the US starting June 15th, 2021 this summer.
