Public Domain Theater: Warning From Space

On today's installment of Public Domain Theater, we bring you the Japanese space opera known as Warning From Space!

Released by Daiei, the same folks who made the Gamera films, this was the first color tokusatsu (Japanese live action "special effects") movie released, debuting about a year before The Mysterians. The boys at Daiei were pretty clever as well: though the aliens in the film are human sized, posters illustrated them as the giant, city-wrecking variety instead. This film wasn't released in the US for 11 years!
