This isn't the first Lupin The Third trailer, but it's the longest one to date. It also gives us a good look at the live-action version. Well, whaddaya think? Will it suck?

The movie opens in Japan on August 30 and will be directed by Ryuhei Kitamura of Azumi and Godzilla: Final Wars fame. Kitamura also directed the cutscenes for Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes.
