Description

On the surface of the moon, an incredible battle is raging on. Four Ultraman brothers, protectors of the universe –- Ultra Seven, Ultraman Jack, Ultraman Ace and the original Ultraman –- are fighting against the gigantic Ultra-Killer-Saurus created by Yapool, an alien being from another dimension who has been stopped from invading our world time after time by the Ace of Space, Utraman Ace. But this time, the challenge may be too great even for the combined might of the four Ultra Brothers. In their dire situation, they must use all of their great powers to seal the super-beast inside an unbreakable prison at the bottom of a lake near Kobe in Japan. By doing so, they are left virtually powerless, barely surviving by assuming their human forms –- perhaps forever.

Twenty-five years have passed since the disappearance of the Ultra Brothers, and now a new Ultra fighter -- from M78, the Land of Light -- has been assigned to Earth. The rookie is Ultraman Mebius, and his mettle is soon to be tested by the Yapool, who has been preparing for his arrival. He has been gathering an army of super-aliens, all of who suffered defeat at the hands of the Ultra Brothers in the past. A firestorm of destruction is about to be unleashed on the world.

Pure, concentrated joy for Ultra fans of all ages, Ultraman Mebius & Ultraman Brothers is the ultimate celebration of 40 years of Ultraman adventures. Japanese television’s greatest franchise, Ultraman... the magnificent red-and-silver giant from outer space who first appeared on July 17, 1966. Since then, Tsuburaya Productions has produced 18 series and numerous feature films. To ensure an incredible hit, Tsuburaya spared no expense in gather an army of monsters and heroes for a dazzling display of spectacular action and special effects. Go ahead and count them, there are more Ultra-action scenes in this film than ever before. But the grand coup was to secure the service of the four original actors who’d portrayed the human hosts of the Ultra fighters. That’s right, fans, Susumu Kurobe is back as Hayata, the original Ultraman. At age 67, Kurobe looks damn good and is ready to flash his beta capsule and “shuuuuu-watchhh” into action once again!
