Terra Formars Trailers. Takashi Miike‘s Terra Formars (2016) movie trailers stars Rinko Kikuchi, Rila Fukushima, Kane Kosugi, Emi Takei, and Takayuki Yamada. Terra Formars‘ plot synopsis: “With the space program attempting to travel to Mars, 21st century scientists were tasked with warming up the planet so that humans could survive on its surface. They came up with an efficient and cost effective plan of sending cockroaches and mold to the surface so that the mold would absorb the sunlight and the insect corpses would serve as a food source for the mold.
It is now the year 2577 and the first manned ship to Mars has landed on the planet and the six crew members are ready for their mission. But what they find are giant mutated humanoid cockroaches with incredible physical strength. The crew members are easily wiped out, but not before sending a transmission back to Earth. Now, humanity will send elite warriors to exterminate the mutated bugs and claim back Mars.”
I like the plotline but it would have been far more realistic that Earth would have sent soldiers, S.E.A.L.S., to kill the humanoid cockroaches (Terraformars), not genetically modified astronauts / warriors.
I just looked at the manga and anime that this live-action film is based on and this film seems to pale in comparison. I will definitely be watching the anime (possibly read the manga). With this film and its “special” effects, I am on the fence.
Terra Formars also stars Shun Oguri, Tomohisa Yamashita, Hideaki Itô, Masaya Katô, Eiko Koike, Rina Ohta, and Mariko Shinoda.
