Synopsis

From A Captive Planet Two Million Light Years Away, Came A Desperate Message From Space… Help Us!

On the verge of annihilation, Kido, the leader of the persecuted Jillucians, sends his beautiful granddaughter, Emeralida, to find the eight legendary brave warriors who alone can stop the steel-skinned hordes of the Gavanas Empire! This disparate, rag-tag group (a drunken general, a deposed prince, space hot rodders, a hoodlum, a royal retainer, and a broken-down robot) must band together before it's too late — before the Gavanas can reach their next target: Earth!

Born from the fallout of Star Wars, along with Starcrash and Battle Beyond The Stars, this wildly colorful, anachronistic Space Opera bristling with dazzling visual effects is available on DVD for the first time! Directed by Kinji Fukasaku (Battle Royale), told in an ancient fairy-tale style and featuring a stellar international cast, including Vic Morrow (Combat!), Sonny Chiba (Kill Bill!), Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine), Etsuko Shihomi (Sister Street Fighter), Tetsuro Tamba (You Only Live Twice) and Philip Casnoff (Sinatra), Message From Space is a spectacular sci-fi adventure, where fantasies are real… and reality is fantastic!
