On Feb 11, 2012 will be the theatrical release of a dramatic movie about the Hayabusa mission. It looks like an expensive production: they built a copy of the main JAXA control room for the film.

Here is the web site: http://www.hayabusa2012.jp/index.html

You can watch some trailers there. Watch the one marked 'ver 2' in particular.

It's all in Japanese, but hopefully there will be an eventual DVD release with subtitles.

Oh my goodness, there's a Blu-Ray box set coming out that looks like it even includes a board game...
http://www.amazon.co.jp/gp/product/B0055BCP98/
I am totally willing to buy this, and have a Hayabusa movie night at my house, if I can figure out how to play it. I am guessing my Region A Blu-Ray player will not play it though....?

I am very excited to purchase this myself.

The Blu Ray disc is Region A as A is the Americas and much of SE Asia including Japan (yea). I would expect the DVD would be region 2 however, which is Europe, the Middle East, and Japan.

A little OT, does a US Amazon Login work for Amazon.jp? I haven't even figured out yet were for sure to log in! blink.gif

I was able to log in on the co.jp site using my amazon.com credentials. Once you get to the "My Account" page you will see an option "would you like to see this page in English" which you might find useful.

Translation of actual product pages is rather hit or miss, as Google's translation service is rather bad for Japanese. (I can read just enough Japanese to at least know when Google gets it wrong) Don't forget to look for "International Shipping", and be sitting down when you see the prices. Exchange rate is about ¥77 to the US$.
