Strega's hero teaches us about the importance of commercials


You got to indulge a little

Get ready, people. Garage Hero presents us with an early holiday surprise in the form of a new trailer for their upcoming film, Strega. In other words, Christmas has come early.

I love how the video felt like a parody of the commercials for Toei and Tsuburaya's tokusatsu shows. As we see how the movie is shaping up, it continues to be a great example of a transforming hero film for adults done right.

Perhaps the most important piece of news is that they're aiming for a theatrical release during Winter 2018. They're hoping to hold a screening event in Tokyo, along with seeing if Strega can be shown at Spain's Stiges and CIM Sueca film festivals. On that note, I'd like to wish them the best in making this happen.

Last but not least, Strega will get a Web series version in Winter 2019, which is a great chance for those who miss out on the movie. Speaking of holiday surprises, its predecessor, Gun Caliber, launched on DVD a while back, and it's on sale for $9.95. Thanks to this deal, people can celebrate the best holiday bothday party.
