Gantz Live Action Film: New 90 Second Trailer

A new 90 second movie trailer has been released for the Gantz live action Japanese film. It is based on the on-going manga Gantz by Hiroya Oku which was adapted to anime in 2004. Gantz revolves around the male character Kei Kurono, a high school kid who looks at the world negatively and hates adults. One day Kei and his friend Masaru get into a fatal train accident. Strangely, they are partially revived by a black sphere called Gantz and then forced to play a game to fully regain their lives. The objective of the game is to hunt and kill aliens disguised in human society. Players of the game get a cool perk: skin tight rubber suits that enhance their speed and power. Not to mention some funky futuristic weapons.
