Five, 10 second video spots have been released to tease the March 31, 2017 live-action film directed by Rupert Sanders and starring Scarlett Johansson. The first teaser trailer should be forthcoming soon:

I don't know how they improve on the original, but I'm open to the awesome.

I'm not in general. It depends on how good the result is.
This particular scene above is one of my favorite scenes from the anime, and I like what they did in this live action clip.

Wholesale copying of scenes, but the story looks like it has been changed from "are you still human when your body is entirely a machine?" to "Oh noes, I don't know who I am. I have a past and I must find myself". I watched the live-action shelling scene taken from the anime's opening credits and all I could think was sometimes less is more.

Right now, I am not overly impressed with what I am seeing in this remake.

Ok, I'll say it: That is one form fitting outfit that she wears. Excuse me while I push my eyeballs back into their sockets. :blink:

This movie must be in trouble. They are showing way too much stuff. I have even seen videos where Adam Savage visits Weta and sees some of the effects. This never happens before the release.

Other than some diehard Anime fans, does this really have the appeal for the general masses to make any kind of money, even with it's star?

My thoughts are it falls pretty flat and will be quick to DVD/Blu.

Matrix sold well. You can argue that Matrix has no appeal for the general masses too.

But Matrix was quite groundbreaking SFX wise for its time. This is nothing but a CGI fest, or more or less a giant video game being projected on the big screen.

From what I see, I seriously don't see anything bad. It looks nice. I'm just surprised why they are showing too much and if there is a problem, it must be the story.
