Cinematical has just received this exclusive poster for Big Man Japan, which is part of Magnolia Pictures/Magnet Releasing's Six Shooter Series, and is being described as "Godzilla meets Katamari." Personally, I'm immediately sold on that alone, but for those who need a bit more awesome with their plot descriptions, here ya go: "A middle-aged slacker living in a rundown, graffiti-ridden slum, Daisoto's job involves being shocked by bolts of electricity that transform him into a stocky, stick-wielding giant several stories high who is entrusted with defending Japan from a host of bizarre monsters. But while his predecessors were national heroes, he is a pariah among the citizens he protects, who bitterly complain about the noise and destruction of property he causes. And Daisato has his own problems – an agent insistent on branding him with sponsor advertisements, an Alzheimer-afflicted grandfather who transforms into a giant in dirty underwear, and a family who is embarrassed by his often cowardly exploits. A wickedly deadpan spin on the giant Japanese superhero, BIG MAN JAPAN is an outrageous portrait of a pathetic, but truly unique hero."
Written, directed by and starring Hitoshi Matsumoto, Big Man Japan will stomp its way into theaters this March. Check out the full poster below, and for more on the Six Shooter Series, go here.
