Someone in corporate wised up. Original 1995 movie shown with subtitles or dubbed.

>dat opening in a proper theater audio system

Can we just get a good blu ray release already? We're finally getting Innocence and both gigs of SAC so a blu ray with at least 5.1 Japanese and proper subs would be nice.
>>
They've been having a showing once a month since December, I saw Mononoke in the theatre tonight and it was fucking great, I'll be seeing GiTS too hopefully subbed. Last month was Spirited Away

It's more like they know anime is a already produced cash cow in a dying system of media. Seriously, things like NETFLIX, Hulu, and Amazon are killing movie theaters and cable TV faster than you can drop a hat.

Want to know the reason Marvel/DC shows are on the rise? Because normie nerds are now at the "willing to spend the most age group". Anime is going to be the most normalized thing soon, everything is already paid for and throwing it on a screen for people to rewatch is pennies on the dollar.

>>
>>152062432
so it's irrelevant

>>152062508
???
They're showing it in both subs and dubs, profit margin won't make a difference when it's already confirmed
>>
>>152062650
Yeah and they are going to probably do the exact same thing as princess mononoke; one showing of the sub and rest of the time as a dub.

stop overrating this boring as fuck movie and it's 2deep4u bullshit. it's not even remotely entertaining. The dialogue puts me to sleep.

>>152062730
This is being handled by a totally different company, and if no one's going to see the subbed version then what difference does it make? Getting a ticket should be no issue then.

Really conflicted on watching the subbed or dubbed versions. I want to appreciate the visuals with the dubbed version, but I don't like how English Motoko sounds...
>>
>>152063012
watch both
>>
>>152063012
The dialogue is inconsequential most of the time and shouldn't be too hard to read and look at the movie on a big screen
>>
>>152063012
english motoko is fine. if you;re gonna pay money do see a film in theaters especially one with good, animation, you better see it dubbed or else you're just wasting your time. You can always watch it subbed when you get home. live for the experience.

with that being said, you should not bother seeing it at all in theaters since the movie is literally garbage. the only thing that would keep you awake to continue watching that boring piece of shit are the loud theater speakers
>>
>>152062751
>millennials think a movie older than them is boring
I'd rather watch Code Geass or something. It's like Death Note except with Gundams...and that chess match between Lelouche and Schneizel was the pinnacle of anime mindfuckery and tension. He moves his OWN KING INTO CHECK, HOLY SHIT!
>>
>>152063368
>millennials
Nice excuse, faggot. I watch 70's anime on a weekly basis and 90's anime is my favorite. GitS' overly philosophical story is what kills it. I don't care what they're saying and they aren't giving me a real reason to care. Most of the movie is repetitive dialogue which a good movie would be able to draw my attention which this is not. It's a dull mess covered in decent art.

It actually wasn't that bad, just the same shit other people complained about already, people laughing at shit that wasn't supposed to be funny, someone making noise on and off, a phone or two ringing, muricans clapping at the end of the movie. All in all not the worst showing I've been to but I don't see the point putting up with it when I could just watch the anime from the comfort of my home.

I don't know
A good surround system and TV are as good as if not better than sitting in a cramped and loud theatre for $10
>>
>>152064255
I went to the Spirited Away dub showing last month. It sold out a week before the showtime and when I got there it was completely packed. GitS is less popular since fewer people grew up with it like they did with Ghibli, but it might get a boost what with live action coming out soon.

Seeing as how there's 1 theater and 2 showing in my city, I'm guessing it'll be packed this time too.
>>
>>152064431
>a boost what with live action coming out soon
god I hope not, I want that to fail miserably so we don't get stuck with a flood of anime adaptations
>>
>>152064377
>A good surround system and TV
normal people dont have surround systems especially not theater quality where it's very intimate. Also no one has a TV the size of theater screens.
>sitting in a cramped and loud theatre
You do realize theaters have basically lounge chairs now. no such thing as cramped. Also I don't know what theater you go to, but people generally don;t talk through a movie.
>for $10
oh so you can afford a nice surround system and TV but not a cheap ticket to see a movie.

I don't understand your logic.
>>
does anyone have the screencap of the anon who was explaining/ranting about how GitS was the perfect movie?

I explicitly remember him saying something like "I think this movie is perfect and I'm the kind of guy who would even change some things about Citizen Kane" at the beginning of the explanation/rant.
>>
>>152064480
>no one has a TV the size of theater screens
and most people don't have a room long enough to need a screen that large, I sit 10' away from my TV

also by loud I mean the speakers, past few movies I've been to have been waaayyyy too loud, so much that explosions and other louder sounds just get completely crushed by the speakers not being able to handle it.

and I didn't buy a surround sound system to watch one movie, I bought it to improve my general home viewing experience.

I don't have high hopes for it either, but if it introduces more people to classic anime then that's a good side effect.

I don't blame you by not seeing it, but I'm going to see the live adaptation regardless. Forgive me, I don't have the willpower to vote with my wallet anymore. Live adaptations are so rare and the original is something of a favorite.

ScarJo is shit
Live action anime is shit

It doesn't help anime, it helps them making more live action atrocities of good anime (with the exception of GitS which isn't good). Do you really want to see Keanu Reeves Cowboy Bebop. This is going to do nothing but cause more problems. Next we're going to get a Sailor Moon movie starring the Gorilla from the new Ghostbusters. Do you really want Hollywood to do this?

Do you WANT bad anime adaptations to flood theaters?
>>
>>152064609
Have you not seen the trailers? ScarJo's a shitty fit, the CGIs garbage, it steals things and then executes them worse, and worst of all it'll be a harbinger of more of this shit unless it ends up flopping like the asscreed movie did recently. I love Gits and I don't want to see it given the hollywood adaptation treatment at all.

>>152064975
Why wouldn't it have influence? The anime adaptation market is ripe for the picking, and will introduce a new era to take the place of young adult novel adaptations. There's been talk of Bebop and Akira movies for years an I wouldn't say that they're unlikely if GitS does well.
>>
>>152064975
In case you aren't aware, major hollywood studios recently bought a bunch of successful manga/anime IPs and are taking the first steps to adapt them.
GitS is going to be the test subject. If it succeeds there's no reason for them to stop doing the same shit.

They're looking for something to renew capeshit. The "chosen one" direction they've taken for GitS makes it pretty obvious. mangashit is going to be the next capeshit if that movie succeeds.

You certainly do have the willpower to avoid wasting two hours in a theater. Just pirate it when it leaks if you're so morbidly curious.

I mean, fuck, it's not like you need to watch it in a theater to know how much it sucks. If you go see it you'll STILL be voting with your wallet.

You made me visualize live Bebop and that was a little frightening, I'll agree that there are some things I don't want to be adapted and Bebop is one of them.

But wait, going back to your premise, why is no adaptation better than a bad one? What makes it disrespectful to the source material if the source material can just go on existing? And who's to say that at in this gold rush, at least one decent adaption won't be made (without naming an example)?

So in summary, reasons not to buy a ticket to GitS live:
>it'll suck (this is a given)
>its success means more live action adaptations
>adaptations are overwhelmingly likely to also suck
>even in general, remakes of all kinds are bad for creativity
>the next candidates for adaptations cannot possibly be worthwhile (Akira, Bebop)
>the adaptations and related media will unavoidably permeate the internet (ignoring is not an option)
>the adaptations' series will become well-known for the wrong reason
And if you still want to see it
>you can buy a ticket for another movie and sneak in

I'll do the different ticket idea. I have $15, free time, a strong stomach, and I won't have to support the film.
