Yep this trailer was much better. The anime eyes are still off-putting and unnecessary though. *shrugs*

Yeah, will catch on Netflix in December or the when the appropriate time has passed for it to arrive on Netflix. As someone else mentioned, I just watched Ghost in the Machine on HBO a few weeks ago. I am getting that vibe from this movie.

Yeah, I still probably won't watch it in the theater but I'll definitely catch it streaming.

wait, so a robot that looks similar to humans, has an exoskeleton, and stuff like that, yet it's the eyes that make the character fall into the uncanny valley for you?

I won't watch it in the theater, but it looks interesting.

The eyes just bring further attention to the fact she's a CG character....and constantly takes the viewer out of everything else going on the trailer.

Just found out a guy I knew back in high school was on the film crew for this movie. So that's neat.

I saw this movie a few days ago.

The motion capture looks great, and her giant eyes surprisingly didn't really distract me, and actually kinda grew on me.

The story and setting make little to no sense, but it doesn't really matter, and it's one of those movies that sets up for a sequel from the start.

Highlight for possible spoiler: It's incredibly disappointing that they never even make it to the giant floating city hovering ominously above them the entire film. The whole film is about getting to that city and they never even show it. You obviously have to wait for the sequel

Overall, don't expect much from it, it's purely mindless action. The future setting of the film is terrible in execution (maybe the comic is better, I dunno), nothing makes sense and the plot holes are bigger than her eyes. Some of the cyborg on cyborg action was entertaining though, which kinda says a lot coming from a critic like me.

2 out of 4 stars

Re:spoiler the OVA from the 90s is the same. It's not until really late in the manga that it happens.

I see, somehow I never saw those back then. I'm not convinced this film will make enough to make a sequel though.

About to be a huge bomb. Projecting to make $25M on a $150-200M budget.

Oof.

Maybe International will pick it up.

I have a $4 ticket from T Mobile in Atom, but still cannot be bothered to redeem it to see this.

I hear it's good if you're a fan of the manga.

I think it's already been opening internationally and hasn't done so well.

I want to see it for myself. I'll probably go tomorrow.

I'll probably check out the 3D version tomorrow morning. I usually don't like 3D but if it's done well it can be good and with James Cameron involved, I imagine it's done very well.
