Star Trek who? Episode what? It turns out that the only sci fi flick we really need to be looking forward to is Toei's CG movie remake of the classic anime Space Pirate Captain Harlock, which just had its first English language trailer released. Sure, Harlock doesn't have the budget of those big American movies — although it is Toei's most expensive project ever, costing over $30 million U.S. — but do Star Trek or Star Wars have spaceship with giant skulls on the front of them? No they do not. Advantage: Harlock.

Space Pirate Captain Harlock hits Japan in the fall; its American release is unknown, but I guarantee it's not nearly soon enough.
