I’m still a bit worried about Scarlett Johansson as the Major, though to be fair, Motoko is a cyborg, so she’s not technically Japanese. I know this is kind of a huge controversy here. That said, this is looking great. The level of detail in this cyberpunk world may be worth the admission alone. Definitely has all of that dense neon billboards atmosphere that you don’t see a lot of in future movies. It certainly seems like it’s going to be a cyberpunk sort of year between this and that Blade Runner sequel.
I also really love how much some of the scenes match the original Anime. Especially with that fight int he water and the therm-optic camo.
