  1. it would be funny if this ends up above that other adaption of a beloved nineties animated movie on RT
  2. Check that clip carefully. She wears a body suit (can see it on her neck)
  3. Already suspected a few pages back that they seem to go the RoboCop route of amnesiac cyborg... hope they dont make it too similar to that. And yeah, the visuals are what might make this somewhat watchable if they mess up the story too badly
  4. i think your grasp on what the general public enjoys is really not the best... i still remember how you kept insisting that Frozens word of mouth is not good during the start of the run... Many aspects of Frozen (and its soundtrack) are exectued somewhat hastily and it certainly has its flaws but it had a very honest core which resonated with many people in quite a few different ways. I still havent seen Moana since it opened here so late, but from what i have seen online it seems to be a much more refined and maybe even sterile product polished to perfection by a committee. When i first see it, that notion might change, but for now this is part of my explanation for why it did not take off (the other part is probably mainly strong competition).
  5. The thing is, that this does not seem to be a straight up remake of neither of the movies nor the tv series. So i would not hold that against ist. They do give the whole story a different spin. The scenes which have been similar to the anime movies are going to play out in a different context (as a small example the whole robo geisha stuff is from the second movie and the jumping down skyscraper and breaking through the glass is from the first one... they also stated that ). What i do fear is that that new spin is going to be integrated in a way which destroys what is at the core of the original... as always only time will tell whether the people involved will succeed or not... but just dismissing this since it is supposedly a scene for scene remake is missing the mark by a quite a bit.
  6. well strictly speaking the Majors would be rubber (or something close to it) as well
  7. So in the original anime (i am afraid i dont know the manga so i cant say anything about storylines tackled in that) she As far as i know they will go with a more conventional storyline and villain which has been in an arc shown in the GitS anime tv series. But kudos to them if they can pull off what you have suggested above. That would be pretty ambitious
  8. Late Renaissance... last one is Tarzan which followed it
  9. I actually think that the story will not really follow the story of the first move that closely even though there seem to be quite a few scenes lifted out of it 1:1. As far as i know it will lift stuff from multiple media such as the stand alone complex series, the manga and the movies. So while they try to retain the visual style the story will be different... which in itself might be an issue if they mess this aspect up too much. I get robocop vibes from this (the whole amnesia and built to save people angle...) and that makes me a bit worried.
  10. i would assume so... at least it has been used in the bad quality cam version of this clip also, i like the trailer quite a bit. Only thing that might be a bit worrying is the whole amnesia thing... will be interesting to see how that plays out. They probably have made some changes to her character in order to make her more relatable... anyways, the below clip is what got me into serious anime, so i really hope this whole thing turns out all right
  11. Additionally they realease quite a bit of technical stuff related to their software... for example this nice explanation for their path tracer also they have videos that explain details such as their snow modeling. As a computer graphics guy i love this stuff
  12. better quality version here i guess thats going to be the "i want song" for the movie. and that russian trailer shows a few darker parts of the movie... i like that
  13. New video where they show off some of their effects work. While most is about frozen and snow you get some glimples of lava which probably is going to be used in Moana (go to 6:21 and 6:43)
  14. I think in the end you answered your own question... Nowadays animated movies are expesive looking CGI from start to finish
  15. Zootopia Over Big Hero 6! (Zootopia Over IO?!)

    In, since i am in that 300M one as well
