This computer-animated manga-inspired film about a space pirate is banging the drum for its Cannes premiere with a long, dark trailer in English.

A somber 2'30'' teaser trailer for the film, whose premiere is keenly awaited at the 66th Cannes Film Festival, has gone viral on the web. The trailer provides a peek at a movie that looks to be as grim as its stoical scarfaced hero, Captain Harlock of the Arcadia spaceship.Toei Animation, the Japanese studio that first serialized the comics on TV, will be making the movie with the assistance of Leiji Matsumoto, who created the manga and the original TV series broadcast in the 1970s and '80s.Check out the new trailer for "Space Pirate Captain Harlock" at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egg0YQr5-Ec
