Not sure how to feel about this. I have the first anime volume on VHS and I loved it as a teen. I'm sorry, but, Hollywood, why. I mean I do know why but. Why. Wasn't Ghost in the Shell enough?

Just to put this in perspective, this has been a passion project for James Cameron for fucking AGES. Per the wiki: The domain name "battleangelalita.com" was registered to James Cameron by 20th Century Fox around June 2000. He's been wanting to do this for WELL over 20 years at this point, and it's been in development (hell) in some form for 17 years. It's not just generic Hollywood wanting things.

I assume Hollywood people have tons of projects in their drawers.

Anyway I knew someone was going to defend this project, hence the / baw. My opinion still stands unchanged. Because feels.

I mean, there's a BIG difference between "having a project in your drawer" and being actively involved enough to keep a project in development hell and pull through to get it done over a period of almost two full decades.

I'm not really sure why "feels" would be a reason to be against the project though. For me, this kinda feels like if GDT managed to get At The Mountains of Madness made or something like that. Also, what's fundamentally wrong with making a manga/anime into a film (especially since this one is actually set in the US)?

I wish GITS was James Cameron's passion project. Chances are it would've been a lot better than it was. Anyways, the trailer leaves me feeling neutral.

Weird face is weird I mean. I know she looked different in the anime but this was too different. I dunno I'll probably watch it when it goes on tv or something. The anime was pretty depressing IIRC.

It seriously was. I hope they don't gloss over a lot of that, but from the general snippets seen in the trailer, I don't think he will.

To be fair, James Cameron has a history of serving a lot of pretty things without much substance. Not to mention the fact that Avatar was basically white guilt as depicted by alien furries I'm not a fan of his, and honestly having his name attached (even if it's only in a production role) makes me not wanna pay to see it lol.

Also the fact that this is on the coattails of the Ghost in the Shell movie with all its backlash... I can understand the reservations. I agree with the sentiment that it's generally not cool for big movie studios to take creative property from foreign cultures and not have people from those culture working in majors roles of the production.

I'm hopeful because I think the CGI on the actress is cool, and I am digging the uncanny valley line they're toeing. I wanna see how they pull it off in the actual film. I also tend to like Robert Rodriguez movies, so I'm willing to give it a watch.

Never heard of this until trailer was released a few days ago.

Am I the only one that's not really that bothered by the face?

Looks like Alita is pushed to December: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/ne...-alita-1084263

I'd say it's a good move, given that there's no Star Wars in the winter, this gives it the room to try and take that spot, and it'd get OVERWHLEMINGLY hit by the massive number of things this summer with Solo & Infinity War.

Even Linkin Park's getting the "somber movie trailer cover version" treatment now.
