The trailer features the song "NIJI O MOTSU HITO" (Those Who Possess the Rainbow) by BUMP OF CHICKEN. Director Toya Sato explained that the group's music combines despair and hope, and reflects the story of youth depicted in the film.



The five serve as agents of the International Science Organization in Tokyo in the near future. Galactor, a mysterious group whose technology far surpasses that of humans, has declared war on the entire world and has already subjugated half of it. A mysterious crystal-like object called a "stone," is humanity's only hope. Those who are able to draw out the power of the "stones" are forced to train to become special agents in a five-person team called "Gatchaman."



TORI MATSUZAKA will play the role of Ken Washio, the team leader and tactical expert. Also included in the cast are GO AYANO (Kamen Rider 555, Rurouni Kenshin) as second-in-command marksman and weapons expert JAsakura; AYAME GORIKI (Mirai Nikki, IS) as the electronics and demolitions expert Jun; TATSUOMI HAMADA (Ultraman Zero, Gokaiger vs Gavan) as the youngest and reconnaissance expert Jinpei; and, RY HEI SUZUKI (Hana Kimi) as RyNakanishi, the ship's pilot.



Directed by TOYA SATO (Kaiji, Gokusen), with screenplay by Y SUKE WATANABE (20th Century Boys, Gantz, Bloody Monday, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods), Gatchaman premieres August 24th.
