"The crew of the Yamato and its escorts find themselves facing a deadly and cunning enemy and it ain't the USN! It's Reigo and its out for blood! Will the navy of the rising sun defeat this monster or will its sun set forever?! Now as exciting as this sounds, its pretty mediocre even for kaiju but give the trailer a go below and see what lies beneath the seas!"

Interesting – given the events of 1944 I guess we can predict who won

Don't assume you have the straight story on what happened in 1944. Don't you know how governments cover up the truth of aliens and monsters with lies about wars and torpedo bombers and stuff like that? Just look at Admiral Halsey's order No 1 if … no wait, that's an entirely different conspiracy. But you do know why armed NASA soldiers guard the 250ft tall ice wall around Antartica, right? Oh, that's a different conspiracy too? But that one also covers the faking of moon landings and putting fake "globes" in classrooms around the world .. are you sure it doesn't also cover Yamato? No? Sorry. It's getting hard to keep so many secret government conspiracies straight.

Anyways, back to the subject at hand … if you think the Yamato was sunk by the USN, well you've conveniently swallowed the story that two warring nations colluded upon to keep their populations happy. Or docile. Or something like that.

This movie, btw, is about 15 years old. It was released in Japan in about 2005 or so, and already has a bit of a cult following. The news is mostly that some media company has bought the rights to bring it to the US.

Or so I understand.
