    It's already dubbed in Japanese though. Are you saying you're going to watch a dub of a dub?

    Some of you are putting way too much thought into this. It's a Hollywood film, it's going to be pretty much a stand alone effort not to be compared to anything you're already familiar with ( especially something like SAC, that's not the stand alone I'm talking about). Yeah, I'm still going to see it, and it'll be on $5 night at the local theater so I won't be too disappointed.

    If you want to see any anime based live action movie follow the original story line it would have to be done by a Japanese film company. Usually these are done on a lower budget ( I'm assuming since the props and special effects seen in these films look like they had to cut corners ), but I think they do a better job of matching actors to the characters and, like I say, follow the original story line closely mostly editing to fit the time allotment for a film. A couple of examples that I would recommend are Assassination Classroom and Attack on Titan. I found both quite enjoyable.

    Here's a write-up on a 15-minute preview: https://thenerdsofcolor.org/2017/03/10/ghost-in-the-shell-worse/

    I'm taking this one with a grain of salt (the writer just saw 15 minutes' worth of footage anyway), but I'm definitely going to temper my expectations for the movie now.

    Some telling points from the article:
    This should probably serve as a heads-up to the die-hards to avoid this one if you're expecting something completely faithful to the source material. But if you're just looking to have a good time at the movies, then this might serviceable enough for you.

    Dude sounds like a douche. Kinda like nostalgia critic when he's clearly being biased against a movie he clearly hates or a movie he knows nothing or when it's clear he never did any research on

    @Tonto-banchou

    I wish I could say that I was surprised. GitS handled some heavy shit, and I was hoping that the slow reveal of details of this iteration meant that they were going to explore some deeper concepts while also delivering a solid action flick. Boiling the whole thing down to a simple revenge plot isn't bad per se but it isn't really GitS.

    I'll have to suspend my fanboy-ism even further than I thought if I wanna get anything out of this.

    ^I know what you mean. The visuals got me excited for the movie, but after finding out that it was going to be more action than noir, I've begun to lower my expectations. Still, it should be fun to see Takeshi Kitano make the crossover to Hollywood. I hope he gets to shoot someone.

    I'm guessing it'll be a mix of a bit of soul searching from the 1995 film and the action from GITS Solid State Society cause the basic plot is quite similar to SSS.

    Yeah a plane ticket on top of a theater ticket doesn't exactly make sense :D


    I wonder will any character say WOAH as an homage to the matrix?

    I choose to believe they won't be that mainstream

    Well, I suppose that if I checked my email about four hours ago there's a chance that I could have gotten a free ticket. Apparently Crunchyroll had a little over 1200 tickets to give away through Fandango. I think the email was sent at 7:00 PM, probably ran out of tickets at 7:01 PM. Oh well, back to waiting until $5 Tuesday/Wednesday at the local theater.

    See, now that's how you pronounce Kuze




    Michael Pitt (Boardwalk Empire) plays the villain, initially reported as the Laughing Man. The Collider website reported last November that Pitt's villain Kuze is an amalgamation of characters from the anime, including Kuze and the Puppet Master.

    Good grief that movie knew how to push buttons.
