Here’s the full theatrical trailer for Mamoru Oshii’s live-action film, Assault Girls, the feature-length follow-up to his previous short films “Assault Girl: Kentucky no Hinako” and “Assault Girl 2”, both of which were part of omnibus action movies (2007’s “Shin Onna Tachiguishi Retsuden” and 2008’s “Kiru ~ Kill”, respectively).

Plot: In a virtual wasteland resembling the aftermath of global thermonuclear war, three beautiful female hunters: Gray (Meisa Kuroki), Lucifer (Rinko Kikuchi), and Colonel (Hinako Saeki) traverse the barren landscape armed with powerful weapons to fight a group of deadly sand-dwelling monsters called “sunakujira” (sand whales). In order to bring the epic battle to an end, they must defeat a gigantic sunakujira called “Madara”.

Tokyo Theatres Co., Inc. will be releasing “Assault Girls” at Theatre Shinjuku and Ikebukuro Theatre Daiya on December 19, 2009 with more national dates to follow.
