Do you think that the GitS movie will have an impact on anime communities in the west?
Could it start a trend of western movie adaptations of anime?

Recently, Edge Of Tomorrow did very well but almost nobody knew it was based on AYNIK, do you think that it will be different for GitS (seeing as it has the original name)?
>>
>>137429463
Maybe. Since Hollywood don't produce much original stuff anymore.
>>
>>137429463
For a little while you'll have people claiming to be 'into GitS' who will have no idea what a Shirow is or why people are talking about eleven individuals, but I don't see much beyond that. Kind of similar to how when the 1995 movie came out and had some mild mainstream success in the US you had a lot of people suddenly 'into anime' who didn't know the first thing about it.
>>
>>137429463
It's a shame they picked such an ugly actress

they could have given roon roons the role.
>>
>Do you think that the GitS movie will have an impact on anime communities in the west?
Not really. Maybe if Disney caught the oppurtunity in Gundam franchise or something they'd make some bucks out of it but there's not really that much to expand from GitS.

I think that Emily Blunt would've made a great Major. Get her in the shape she was in for Edge of Tomorrow and you could at least get me over the line on her being an actual soldier who has seen some shit. I know that people will trot out the 'but muh cyborg body thing' and while it's true, it's a lot easier to pull that off in CG or cell animation than it is with actual actors. Go watch the second Star Trek reboot movie to see what happens when you take a lanky actor (Benedict Cucumber) and try to use special effects to make them seem superhumanly strong. You need some physical presence.
>>
Is GitS not already a pretty mainstream anime movie
>>
It's gonna be awful.
>>
>>137429463
I think it will have some impact in the long run. At first most directors will refuse to adapt "children cartoons" but with years passing someone (probably Disney) will start to make a lot of manga/anime adaptations and will start a trend.
>>
>>137429767
Yeah but not as mainstream as it's gonna get after a Hollywood actress that plays in the biggest western superhero movie is starring in a live action adaptation of it.

>>137429463
Edge of Tomorrow had a pretty muted showing in the box despite it's critical praise.
I suspect that how well the GitS movie does will reflect how Hollywood proceeds with manga adaptations.
If it does poorly their doubts will be confirmed and they will go back to being gun shy about adapting Japanese things.
If it does well they'll probably try to cash in, how much they do probably depends a lot on how long superhero movies keep printing money.
Personally I think GitS will do fine in the box office. The movie will probably be garbage but the success of Lucy suggests Johansson has the star power (if not the acting ability) to carry an action film regardless of how awful it is.

Nope, at least not a big impact. Some people might get a bit into anime, watch some stuff and maybe discuss it on reddit.
Could it start a trend of western movie adaptations of anime?
It might, if it does really well. I kinda hope it does because I want more mecha blockbusters, capeshit is boring as fuck and star wars hasn't been good for years.

Western Audiences will watch it as a standalone thing and not give a damn about the original work. What in your right minds makes you think they will?

If it is very successful, then you might see some more attempts at adaptations, but they'll be projects that are unfaithful to the original to appeal to Western audiences, and ultimately will be bad.

I'm going to ignore everything about this movie. It'll be a crappy CGI shitfest. No way hollywood is going to pull off any good fight scenes with robots. And ScarJo has proven herself to be completely shit as an action actress. Her being casted as the major is proof how misguided this remake will be.
>>
Scarlett Johansson isn't as big of an issue as the director, who's only ever made Snow White and the Huntsman. But we know it's going to be shit. The questions is how good the marketing is to lure in the mainstream crowd and make them interested in the name.

>>137430524
that Asian girl from Pacific Rim is all anyone can ever suggests as a counter. That's why she or any other Asian lead wasn't chosen, none of the ones in Hollywood are proven capable of carrying a film by themselves and Hollywood is risk-adverse

GITS should be the easiest anime to adapt. It's basically a sci-fi police procedural with memorable characters and some well established themes and hallmarks.
Of course this adaptation will blow it by having zero personality and craftsmanship. And the characters we all know and love will be unrecognizable.

It's going to be shit, but even then most people won't even know what it's based on.

This movie will be so fucking terrible, it will be all action with nothing that makes the GitS universe or cyberpunk in general interesting. Also, inb4 they cast a young hot white guy as Bato so they can have a forced romance subplot like in all shitty Hollywood actionromps.

>>137433518

Here's Pilou Asbæk who will play Batou

>>137433535
It's a joke because Hollywood would never cast an asian as a protagonist. It's not even going to be big enough to make them consider doing it for progressiveness.

>>137433869

>>
>>137433869
I could see it work if the cyberbodies were all modeled after caucasians, but it would make no sense with Togusa for example. Anyway, the movie will most likely be garbage.
>>
>>137433869
Because after World War 3 and 4 most of the japanese people were completley wiped out and white people from america and europe settled the country.

>>137431546
This.
There is no way this could be anywhere near decent; considering what has been revealed so far, it will probably be just a mediocre action flick with little relation to the source material at best, and garbage on the level of the Dragon ball or Avatar live actions at worst.
Unless a miracle happens, I think the best course of action to take will be to ignore it completely and pretend it has never existed. It's what I'll do anyway.

Wouldn't a series that revolves around living in a body that's wholly alien to you want to make a point by casting a non asian woman as Maokto? I don't recall the major looking all that asian in the SAC.

They should have gotten someone more physically impressive than Scajo though
>>
>>137434334
You're a retard, take the advice of anime girls.
>>
>>137434249
Well, the characters still have their japanese names in the casting. If they placed it in the american empire instead with different characters I could see it work. Isn't Motoko's cyberbody supposed to be a pretty generic one anyway? Not really hard to believe that there would be others with the exact same appearance, in the 1995 movie you see others with the same appearance as her.

>>137434334
> I don't recall the major looking all that asian in the SAC.
Really? She looked pretty asian to me in SAC, in the 1995 movie I thought she looked white, but that was mostly because of the blue eyes.

>>137434655
Unless the setting is a western one(like Berserk, it's pretty safe to say that almost everyone is white) It's most likely the opposite 90% of the time. A setting like Ghost in the Shell which takes place in Japan, most of the characters are without a doubt japanese. Besides, the Major would be pretty easy to recognize if she were white, not really the best when you are supposed to be a secret agent working for a part of homeland security that officially doesn't exist.
