Well, it was bound to happen at some point. After eight years since the live-action adaptation was first mentioned, we now have the first real look at the classic manga coming to the big screen. Many people seemed upset that Rupert Sanders was directing the movie, that Scarlett Johansson was going to star as The Major and that adapting a much-beloved story which had an iconic animated film made of it seemed to deem this as unnecessary…well, I am interested! It should hopefully do better than Dragonball Evolution, Speed Racer and many more!
Yes, the film to me actually looks fascinating. I understand Hollywood will not make a movie 100% the way people want it, but it does look so much fun. The diverse cast will indeed be highlighted in all reviews and comments, but it is the cinematography and the special effects which will be the winning factor for this film.
The film is due out on 31st March 2017, see the trailer now and see what you think. Let me know what your opinion is.
