Go USA has released a trailer for Toho’s Japanese World War II movie The Great War of Archimedes. The film is based on the 2015 manga series Archimedes no Taisen, it is a true story of the behind-the-scenes efforts that the Japanese Navy had while producing the Yamato Warship, which was the biggest battleship in the world, prior to WWII.
