Lupin the Third: The Castle of Cagliostro Trailers

In order to promote this film, here are some trailers. The Japanese one (with subtitles!) focuses on the suspense of the movie and then switches over to action scenes while introducing the cast. Like many Japanese trailers made at the time, it has lots of words flashing over the screen to explain the movie. The USA trailer is ok, but a bit low budget (read: cheesy). Anime fans will also cringe when the announcer mispronounces the word manga as 'main-gah'. The last trailer is Italian. For some reason, Italians love Lupin the Third. Seriously, Italy was the only country to get a dubbed version of the original series when it first came out.

*UPDATE: The Castle of Cagliostro is now on Hulu! Click here to watch!
