Looks decent...and I like the song remix in the trailer.
It bothers me that with all this dosh spent on effects, they couldn't manage to search the world for a makeup artist to get Batou's eyes looking decent.
It does seem they are at least superficially respecting the material with those visuals. Saw several that were lifted straight from the anime.
Makes me wanna watch it at the very least.
Been a fan since the manga, but I never caught either of the series. Should I go unfuck myself asap?
Question from the audience. "Any particular order?"
Film Order: Ghost in the Shell > Ghost in the Shell Innocence
Stand Alone Complex>
Stand Alone Complex 2nd gig>
Stand Alone Complex Solid State Society.
Stand Alone Complex: Laughing Man is a recap movie of SAC: 1st series - it can be completely skipped.
Arise can be watched independently, it deals with how the squad came together. I also think it's the weakest of any of the film/tv series.
Was this one posted yet? God do I fucking hate scarjo though I'll never understand the appeal of her as an actress other than nut bustability.
I just hate so much what hollywood chooses to do with movies.
Trailer flat out turns this from a story revolving around what it means to be human/an individual in an increasingly mechanized world and the isolation caused by said mechanization into a "THEY STOLE UR IDENTITY" garbage going from "What am I?" to "Who am I?"
Those were pretty much my thoughts as well.
I mean I know why they do it but it still sucks.
I'm just upset because there are so few anime that are actually good in a meaningful sense. If you are going to destroy any interesting concepts and thought provoking nuances that actually ARE in these few anime then just start live adapting shounen shit and save us all the misery and them the effort of stripping shit down.
I would love to see live action adaptations of some of the Gundam, 20th century boys, I am a hero, and Pluto. If battle angel alita turns out to be trash then hollywood needs to just drop anime/manga and stick to nightmarish reboot ideas like the starship troopers remake that is starting now.
