Captain Harlock trailer in for upcoming CG film

The image and the trailer (both below)  looks pretty good!

But I have to admit that I'm not sure why I'm rooting for a Space Pirate.  I remember watching the anime in the 70's as a kid on KTSF Channel 26 (in San Francisco) and really loving it but again, I don't know what Harlock's purpose or what he was doing.

I guess I was just happy to be watching cartoons at night.

Surprisingly, the space shoulder turkey is very light.
