Det är nu ungefär tre veckor kvar tills att Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) filmatisering utav Masamune Shirow’s klassiska cyberpunk anime ”Ghost in the Shell” går upp på bio, och mina förväntningar är rätt så höga. Ni förstår, jag har varit ett fan utav både filmerna och anime serierna i bra många år nu (jag kollade på första filmen i samband med releasen utav ”Syndicate Wars” på 90-talet).

Scarlett Johansson är Motoko Kusanagi aka ”The Major” i nya Ghost in the Shell filmen.

Jag känner dock att GITS 2017 kan bli något utav en nystart för GITS universumet. Så ”förhoppningsvis” så kommer filmen att bli en stor succé (törs man då kanske hoppas på ett nytt GITS spel?), och så här långt så har filmen gjort rätt så bra ifrån sig. För varje ny trailer som släppts utav GITS 2017, så har mina förhoppningar för filmen höjts.

Med tanke på hur mycket action GITS anime filmen hade, så kan vi nog förvänta oss en hel del intensiva moment i 2017 filmatisering också.

Det återstår dock att se hur helheten kommer att bli, för det ska ju nämnas att Ghost in the Shell är ett väldigt, väldigt djupt universum (tänk Matrix, fast med ännu mer filosofi och WTF moment). Så här långt har dock GITS 2017 hintat om att detta djup kommer även att infinna sig i den nya långfilmen.

Specialeffekterna är rätt så imponerande må jag säga.

Nåväl, vi får väl vänta och se hur det står till med den saken 😉 Hur som helst, den 31 Mars så går GITS 2017 av stapeln. Så jag hoppas att filmen kommer att bli riktigt bra. Jag är dock rätt nöjd med casting listan för GITS 2017:

Scarlett Johansson as The Major
Takeshi Kitano as Chief Daisuke Aramaki
Michael Pitt as Kuze
Pilou Asbæk as Batou
Chin Han as Togusa
Juliette Binoche as Dr. Ouélet
Lasarus Ratuere as Ishikawa
Yutaka Izumihara as Saito
Tawanda Manyimo as Borma
Danusia Samal as Ladriya
Pete Teo as Tony
Yuta Kazama as Data Host
Rila Fukushima as a geisha
Kaori Momoi
Michael Wincott
Tricky

Jag skulle även rekommendera folk att kolla upp följande filmer, tv-serier och tv-spel (imo, så är det väldigt bra):

Filmer:
Masamune Shirow Ghost in the Shell (1995)
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (2004)

As you might already know, there is now about three weeks left until Rupert Sanders (Snow White and the Huntsman) real-action movie adaptation of Masamune Shirow’s classic cyberpunk anime “Ghost in the Shell” hits the cinemas worldwide. Well, my expectations are pretty high. You see, I have been a fan of both the movies and the anime series for many years now (I watched the very first GITS movie about the same time that Bullfrog did in-game ads for the movie in “Syndicate Wars).

Even so, I still feel like the GITS 2017 movie could be something of a rebirth of the GITS universe. So “hopefully” the movie will turn out to be a really great movie  (then I/we might dare to hope for a new GITS game as well?), and so far so good. Because for each new trailer that’s been released for the movie, I’ve felt a “little” less worried about the final cut of GITS 2017. Nevertheless, only time will tell how well everything will turn out in the end. Especially since the GITS universe is a rather deep one (think “Matrix” but with even more philosophy and WTF moments). However, since the trailers have hinted that there will be plenty of depth to be found in GITS 2017 as well. Then I guess that we could expect nothing less from the final version of the movie.

Oh well, we will know for sure if that’s the case once the movie goes up on the big screen on the 31st of March. On a personal level though, I truly hope that GITS 2017 will become a huge success. As I would like to see more GITS animes, movies and games in the future. As for here and now though, I find the cast list for the GITS 2017 movie to be a rather impressing one:

Scarlett Johansson as The Major
Takeshi Kitano as Chief Daisuke Aramaki
Michael Pitt as Kuze
Pilou Asbæk as Batou
Chin Han as Togusa
Juliette Binoche as Dr. Ouélet
Lasarus Ratuere as Ishikawa
Yutaka Izumihara as Saito
Tawanda Manyimo as Borma
Danusia Samal as Ladriya
Pete Teo as Tony
Yuta Kazama as Data Host
Rila Fukushima as a geisha
Kaori Momoi
Michael Wincott
Tricky

And before I wrap this post up, I would also like to recommend people to check out the following GITS TV-series, movies and video games (I find them to be rather entertaining):

Movies:
Masamune Shirow Ghost in the Shell (1995)
Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence (2004)
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (2006)
Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie (2015)

Tv-series:
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex (2002 – 2003, 26 episodes)
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd GIG (2004 – 2005, 26 episodes)
Ghost in the Shell: Arise – Alternative Architecture (2015 – 2015, 10 episodes)
