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.

Here's an English translation of the trailer that I made with the help of some friends:

Your translation is actually for a different Japanese movie about Hayabusa!
The one I posted about was directed by Tomoyuki Takimoto, and stars Ken Watanabe.
The full title reads "Hayabusa Return From Afar".

And yet another one comes out March 10, more of a documentary.

Woah! I just assumed it was the same film without even clicking the link. Wow, two. The trailers are remarkably similar, but both look good to me. Thanks very much for posting that.

Alright now -- show of hands -- after seeing the trailer who thinks they are going to cry at the end of the movie?

I can't cry, but I may well develop annoying completely unrelated oil leaks around my optical sensors. If anyone says anything about it, they can bite something shiny... wink.gif

You can order the older one right now from the Amazon Japan web site, though not available until March 7.
http://www.amazon.co.jp/%E3%81%AF%E3%82%84...1647&sr=1-2

Be warned that Japanese DVD's are ridiculously expensive even before shipping, and they are coded for Region 2 so check whether your computer maybe can play them. This one does have English subtitles.

There are actually a few listed. To see them, go to www.amazon.co.jp, select 'DVD' from the dropdown and paste this into the search box -> はやぶさ. (Hint, use Chrome browser and it's built in translation feature)

You're still a dude. I leaked some unidentified substance myself.

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....?

It looks like there are 3 disks in the box, so you get a DVD and BluRay version. I have never tried this, but I think software DVD players are more lenient about region coding than the hardware ones. Especially on Linux. There are region-free hardware players too, like this one from Samsung. http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-DVD-C350-Reg...duckduckgo-d-20

Hard to make out how the board-game works in that small photo. Seems to be made out of paper.
You are looking at a $100 expense there, including shipping, so research carefully before ordering. (And tell us what you find out)

I paid not much less than that to get the BluRay of Kaguya HD footage from Japan. Worth every.single.penny.

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$.
