    Either way this movie goes I will be one of the sheeple who goes to see it. Good or bad they will most likely get my money. Just like when I (freely admit to this.) bought the DVD of G-Savoir. Plus all this talk of a live action, i had to watch it this weekend. aaaannnd my eyes still hurt.

    Now that's what I actually want. But we won't get it.

    As for the main Gundam, I wonder what kind of gimmicks they might choose? The original RX-78-02 really didn't have much in the way of special features, but then that might be for the best for an initial film. Maybe give Psycommu (or some variant) to the villains for the hero to overcome and then in a potential sequel they can use it.
    I hope not, I hope they get a decent budget, and just follow classic gundam beats, there can only be so much fighting in a "war drama" so that will save enough on special effects budget. I think keeping it toned down at first is the best way to go. Maybe not as much as classic (although i would be perfectly fine with that) because a little bit of flare will draw in younger kids for sure.

    The next question is what kind of space powers will we see? Perhaps even in a non-UC series we will still get newtypes just to keep the Gundam flavor, I would not put it past a studio to do such things.

    That's some horrid photoshop. God, was that just heads put onto figures? And using model kit art in the background?

    AAAAnd last I checked Char did not look like he was strung out on Heroin. Bad choice of so called "Actor"

    The more I look into it the weirder it is.

    Ty Simpkins is actually super appropriate agewise to play Amuro since he's 16, Amuro being 15-16 in 0079. BUT the pictured used for the photoshop is when Ty is much, much younger...

    Granted, if I did do casting myself I'd probably want somebody Mestizo/Hispanic or Asian to play Amuro since that'd make more sense than a white kid considering his mother appears to be from Rosarito, Mexico and his father from Japan.

    Wait, I'm confused. Is that photo actually real?

    No, it is not real. It is clearly Photoshopped using the boxart images of both the RG RX-78-2 Gundam and MS-06S Zaku II Commander Type (Char Custom), as well as the character statues of Aumro and Char (I actually have the Char statue).

    Re: Live Action Gundam Film Offically Announced

    Eww... that photoshop is horrid. Quality of the actual photoshop aside, the actors used do not look like or even evoke the general idea of the characters of Amuro and Char. In that way, it makes me think of how most major Hollywood studios would probably cast the movie. Needless to say that’s a depressing thought.

    You know what? I really REALLY don't want Sunrise to have a overbearing authority over this film like they did with G-Savior. Most of that movie's issues stemmed from Sunrise's meddling with the project, the budget, actors, and so forth.
