Remake of Platoon of Iron Men film next March; Madhouse's racing film in October

The official website for the Doraemon anime films launched a page for the 2011 film and began streaming a 90-second trailer this past weekend. (In the linked page, wait until the opening sequence ends, and then select the rotating blue icon on the righthand side.) Doraemon: Shin Nobita to Tetsujin Heidan - Habatake Tenshi-tachi will open in Japanese theaters next March; a new Doraemon film has opened in Japan nearly every year during Japan's spring vacation.

The upcoming film is a remake of the 1986 film Doraemon: Nobita to Tetsujin Heidan (Doraemon: Nobita and the Platoon of Iron Men), in which Doraemon's human owner Nobita comes across a giant robot. Yukiyo Teramoto (Doraemon: Nobita no Shin Makai Daibōken - Shichinin no Mahōtsukai, Boku wa Imōto ni Koi o Suru: Secret Sweethearts - Kono Koi wa Himitsu) is directing off a screenplay written by Higashi Shimizu (Crying Freeman, Futari wa Pretty Cure, Kaidan Restaurant).

The official blog for Takeshi Koike and MADHOUSE's Redline car-racing anime film has announced on Tuesday that the Yahoo! Japan Movies website is streaming a two-minute English-narrated trailer. The film, which follows the deadliest car race in the world, will open in Japan on October 9 after advance screenings at international film festivals.

Koike (The Animatrix's "World Record") is collaborating with writer Katsuhito Ishii (Piroppo, Trava) on this project. Leading the cast are SMAP's Takuya Kimura (Howl's Moving Castle, live-action Space Battleship Yamato), Tadanobu Asano (Ichi the Killer, Tokyo Zombie), and Yuu Aoi (Honey and Clover, Tekkonkinkreet).
