Alexandre Aja’s big-budget, live-action version of “Cobra: The Space Pirate” won’t be landing for a while yet (if, that is, it actually makes it), but until then, check out a quickie fan-made teaser trailer from filmmaker Michael Paris. You don’t see much of Cobra himself, but I guess that’s the point.
So what’s this Cobra guy all about?
Set in the far future, the series tells of a man called Cobra, who lived an adventurous life until his enemies began to hunt him down. Cobra surgically altered his face and erased his own memory in order to hide from his foes and lead a normal life. He soon regains his memories and re-unites with his old partner Lady Armaroid and his ship Tortuga. Cobra travels the galaxy, fighting the outlaw Pirate Guild, but also fleeing the law-enforcing Milky Way Patrol. Along with his charm and wit, Cobra survives thanks to his Psycho-Gun, a weapon embodied in his left arm.
