Tomino at 21th January calls press confirence to announce Hollywood live action adaptation of Gundam.
America in the foreground, Japan in the background movie here we come
"Mobile Suit Gundam" general director, Yoshiyuki Tomino, conducted a press conference on January 21! For partnership work with the U.S. Hollywood
I found that animation director Yoshiyuki Tomino-san makes a press conference on January 21.
Producer group, Ltd. 飍 the creator of many other moat Yuji, who won a U.S. Emmy Award and Tomino's known as the original author / general director anime "Mobile Suit Gundam" belongs to this, "wind" of one (※ 3 and due to cold Oh isoprenylaluminum Corsa Ma): kanji, reading that in it has been configured.
The company, a business alliance with SFX studio · Legacy Effects, Inc. of Los Angeles that the new, provides a special make-up and special suits to Hollywood Movies "Avatar," "Iron Man," "X-Men" and "Pacific Rim" this time to start a joint venture that is, the purpose "is sent out to the world market from Hollywood the movie work was an original anime and manga in Japan" that is, Tomino-san called to announce the first wave of the alliance work.
To Presumably, possibility is the content of "Hollywood live-action film adaptation of any anime that Tomino-san was involved" is high, but the details become clear in an interview.
On 21th he announces what movie exactly will be in made?
Also it seems its not limited to one movie, but wider attempt to adapt more japanese works or create new in cooperation with Japan.
Might be not Gundam but some new work. We just know he is involved.
the only live action adaptation I feel good about is the one del toro is proposing for monster.
What Gundam can be adapted for Hollywood and fit in 2.5 hours?
any of them
because Hollywood would butcher the story beyond recognition regardless of which you use
>Turn A Hollywood adaption
>Hollywood doing traps
The music industry is based on traps, dont see why film cant be.
inb4 Dragonball Revolution
But G-Savior is already a masterpiece.
It doesn't say it will be Gundam, just that Tomino will announce it. It could be Ideon or King Gainer.
The Robots and Monsters were cool, the acting, setting, overall plor was not. UC Gundam in particular has way better writing than the border-line parody that was Pacific Rim.
They could probably do something about the original if they could confirm a trilogy, honestly I imagine that US audiences would love Char.
And here we go.
>What Gundam can be adapted for Hollywood and fit in 2.5 hours?
I could totally see it working.
Gotta be Garzey's Wing.
Would Tomino's masterpiece finally get recognized around the world?
inb4 it's a 3DCG version of Doozy Bots
I don't like him because he reminds me of Zorak from something awful.
im normally not one for youtube comments but
>"There would have been annoying "90's kids" who would be feeling nostalgic for this show."
is spot on
>Black kid in the wheelchair is fucking Guntank.
Gets me every time.
Honestly we already know Hollywood is going to butcher this, whatever it is. I'll be happy if the story is unrecognisable and forgettable just as long as they make it a giant robot fight extravaganza a la Pacific Rim. If they actually try to do the IP right they'll just fuck it up, so it's best if they do a half arsed effort and make a disposable popcorn flick.
Gundam is a terrible franchise that gets a free pass from retards because of how influential the original ones were and Hollywood adaptions of anything almost always turn out to be fucking awful.
Does Tomino have the Gundam rights or Sunrise?
He might be just working for Hollywood as robot designer for some shitty movie.
I'd be ok if they made a gundam build fighters adaptation for kids.
considering he worked REALLY closely with Okawara I doubt it'd just be him.
Why the hell would Hollywood want any of them?
>implying people care about Tomino's Gundam
0080 >>>>>> all the Tomino shit
>Tomino desperately trying to stay relevant
he ran out of mangakas and script-writers to trash talk so he decided to turn gundam into a michael bay movie I see
You understand nothing. Its all part of Yamakan`s plane. He created Ultra Super Pictures specifically with this intent
>The objective of the holdings is to cope with the impoverishment of anime production studios due to the shrinkage of the domestic market. The members of the holdings will cooperate in anime production, management of intellectual properties and licenses, and training of young animators. They are planning to invite investors from Hollywood in order to build a scheme for the worldwide business. Ultra Super Pictures have already been working on Black★Rock Shooter TV series to be aired on Noitamina block in January. The series was announced to be eight episodes long.
On 21th Tomino announces that he joins USP, and together with Hollywood they produce Kill la Gundam Of the Blue Steel: Wake Up, Pilots!~
>Elijah Wood as Amuro
This is going to be so fucking horrible.
Hollywood is really getting desperate.
They are running out of american franchises to milk.
This time, Japanese themselves will be included in production - possibly Tomino personally too. So might at least turn diferent from other "anime adaptations"
Nearly everything that goes into hollywood 'adaptation' is like putting a person in an electric chair
In this particular case its the opposite - anime industry getting desperate and wanting to sell on western and asian markets.
The best part is that we will get a pro war, pro AMERICA gundom.
I'm pretty sure two themes of Gundam are: Adults suck and ruin everything and war sucks, no one is ever the ultimate 'good guy' because winning often takes doing bad things.
More Dunbine saga?
>anime industry getting desperate
Anime industry is doing better than ever.
Hollywood is milking a shit lots more recently, and the super heroes trend is getting duller with every release, every movies have the same fucking format, similar plot and music, I guess switching to Anime is a sensible choice for both sides.
Dad, why did you bother adding legs to the robot when tanks have a lower center of gravity and smaller target profile?
>inb4 gundam doing well in the western market
>Hideaki Jewno sees potential
>Cooperate with Jewood to milk Eva more
Thats why USP is created? Thats why Tomino appeals for Hollywood? Thats why Space Dandy? Avengers anime?
Everyone understands that Japanese otaku is miniscule market. Even just selling/broadcasting anime in China/Korea/Taiwan etc. would increase its profits in multiple levels.
Why not remove the legs off soldiers and give them treads while we're at it. Obviously the human model is inefficient and outdated and evolution would have given us such things if it could as being bipedal is obviously disadvantageous.
>mfw Tomino working with Del toro on a dunbine film
That would be, the greatest thing, since... ever.
Too bad Japan is still nationalistic as fuck.
>nature never evolved wheels
>wheels are useless
I'm sure they'd love to practice cultural imperialism. The problem is that China/Korea/Taiwan are also nationalistic as fuck.
Space runaway Ideon live action movie
Because they are suits, giant metal suits.
Have you ever seen a full body suit without legs? dont thinks so
Japan is getting desperate as consumeristic otaku are the only ones keeping it's economy alive.
Zeong didn't need legs.
>dunbine mecha got re-designed to be more lovecraft-esque
oh that's kind of cool
>It looks awesome
>Can kick, jump, run, crouch
>Did i forget it looks awesome?
Anime Vice: Speaking of Hollywood, what would you say to a Hollywood director who says he/she wants to make Gundam into a live-action film?
>Tomino: I would not be able to accept such an offer, because I don’t believe there is someone who has more talent than I do in the Gundam franchise. They might understand Gundam as a concept, but Gundam is more than just robots. That is where I think a lot of people fail to see the true deeper meaning of the work.
Bravo Hackyuki Tomino
1 hour of gay sex between Amuro and Char.
30 minutes of Lalah getting killed accidentally.
1 hour of hate gay sex between Amuro and Char.
You can squeeze in some Quattro Vajeena and dropping asteroids on earth somewhere in there.
See how that works?
Legs would have an advantage over wheels/tracks in very rough terrain
Enjoy your bastardized crap sponsored by Mc Donald.
He's right though.
We'd get: Giant Robots in Middle-Eaststan. The Patriotism War
Another transformers show
Do we also get Micheal bay explosions and what not?
Unicorn ep 8 will be live action
That would upset a lot of people.
Tomino is the hero anime deserves.
So Setsuna will be an American soldier being stranded in the Middle East this time?
Code Geass Hollywood adaptation where evil CCCP conquers America and Yakov Stalin leads the revolution
Japan is not only trying to pander to western audience with their hard-ons for Bebop, remember? They're trying hard to pander to Flips with their boners for SAO and the likes too.
Isn't that the purpose of anime?
Seems like he might have changed his mind.
He's always been an ignorant fuck anyway.
Tomino is a retard butthurt that his crap no longer sells.
Anime was never doing as great. In 90's there were about 10 anime airing per season. In 00's around 30. This season we have over 50 shows airing.
>Japanese otaku is miniscule market
Game of Thrones S1 made 35 million $ through international disc sales. Madoka made just as much in Japan alone. GoT S1 cost 60 million $ to make, Madoka 1-2 million $.
The likes of Precure or One Piece make 600-700 million $ a year. Pokemon around a billion $.
Anime industry is doing better than ever and growing every year.
>They're trying hard to pander to Flips with their boners for SAO and the likes too.
You can throw in SnK, AW, Naruto, one piece, bleach, fairy tail,
This was based on the last con i attended on which animango series has the most cosplayers
Come on. Even shitty ass Street Fighter murrican film features Guile as MC.
They're going to do some retarded shit like making the Zeon aliens and making Amuro named Antonio. Also Char is an alien like Deslar.
Oh and White Base is literally a base of White people now.
>They're going to do some retarded shit like making the Zeon aliens and making Amuro named Antonio. Also Char is an alien like Deslar.
I hope they die if they did this
Broke Back Mountain in space?
It would be awesome.
I'd rather talk about http://translate.google.com/translate?hl=ru&sl=ja&tl=en&u=http%3A%2F%2Fyaraon.blog109.fc2.com%2Fblog-entry-21243.html&sandbox=1
Yeah, Flips and SEA have similar taste in liking juvenile action stories, good or not, plus miku.
Tomino spawned a nearly billion dollar industry that has lasted 35 years.
>Thats why Tomino appeals for Hollywood? Thats why Space Dandy? Avengers anime?
Yeah, few idiots butthurt about their shows selling like crap and trying to pander to the west.
Most of those who cosplay vocaloids don't even know shit about who're they cosplaying
I was rather apalled by it
>implying people will pay attention
not selling two fucking episodes like $100 would help.
Also anime studios getting funded by TV broadcasters would help a lot rather than having studios finance their own production. Japanese system is beyond retardation.
>Forgetting the face of your fathers
And then Karolin and Robert were happy forevermore after defeating the evil forces of Zion.
At least this could eventually lead to a Gurren Lagann movie right?
Though fuck, Michael Bay might do it
This is what Americans actually believe
No, diapers are keeping Japanese economy alive.
Please give me sources on all the numbers you are claiming.
>14 Game of Thrones: The Complete First Season 975,593
>436,989 volume sales x 8,000yen (80$)
That's ignoring GoT costing over 30 times more to make.
Oh the doomed anime industry. They so need to change the model.
And yeah..because every anime series has the popularity of Madoka.
Yeah, because every western TV series has the popularity of Game of Thrones.
Inb4 seed adaptation
Johnnyboy hop into the Freedom gundam it's Americas only chance at relevance
>comparing $10 DVDs with moonprice BDs
>not selling two fucking episodes like $100 would help.
we've been over this hundreds of times, japanese companies have experimented with lower prices it did not increase sales significantly because the majority of those who buy anime are fanatical otaku that would pay those prices anyway.
GoT is the best selling western TV series in years. And it still made less money than the most popular TV anime of the recent years.
That's ignoring the fact it costs 60 million $ per season and is profitable at all only thanks to HBO subscriptions.
And that Madoka made over 400 million $ in merchandise.
Besides, Madoka isn't even the most profitable anime franchise. The likes of PreCure, Jewelpet, Anpanman, Doraemon and Gundam make even more money.
>made less money
DVDs are like, the least important part of the TV business.
I never claimed that. Also Avengers made more money at the Japanese box office than the final Madoka movie.
In the end, Which one is more profitable?
And people buy those moonprice BD's so what's the point?
>anime studios getting funded by TV broadcasters
But they are?
>madoka magicka making more than GoT
this makes me happy
>And it still made less money than the most popular TV anime of the recent years.
Are you retarded?
Madoka earns nothing from the tv business while Game of Thrones makes millions from that alone.
>than the most popular TV anime of the recent years.
madoka is more popular than k-on
Because the culmination of a series of movies for a many decades old franchise is the same as a relatively new franchise.
But it probably cost 500 times more to make also you forget normalfags far outweigh otaku
Game of Thrones by a mile.
And even those numbers alone don't count digital purchases which are pretty high today.
GoT gets nothing from adverts. It airs on HBO.
It only makes money from disc sales and HBO subscriptions.
>than the most popular TV anime of the recent years.
madoka is more popular than k-on?
Madoka made over 400 million $ by mid 2013.
Sorry but GoT isn't even close. Especially with every season costing 60 million $.
>GoT is the best selling western TV series in years.
Horseshit. BB is 10x more popular than GoT. Companies paid $400k for a 30-second ad during the final episodes.
They can't calculate for shit.
No they are not, maybe 1-2 shows a season are but that's it
Madoka aired in practically free time slot because most off people record late anime therefore rating doesn't matter
That shit is going to be overshadowed as fuck by X-Force, Batman/Superman, X-Men movie with Apocalypse, Guardians of the Galaxy, basically every superhero movie that DC and Marvel are pulling out with Star Wars Episode VII towards the end.
Tomino has no chance.
It sold more discs.
>honestly thinking that a show that targets around 100.000 neckbeards in Japan can rival a show which airs worldwide and targets millions in terms of profit
Japan really wants to be Hollywood.
>basically every superhero movie that DC
all DC does is different iterations of batman or superman.
fucking duh, everyone knows it the definition of meme, an idea that exists in society with no need to look into it further
Comparing GoT to Madoka is fucking retarded. American cable companies do not rely on disc sales like in anime industry. HBO gets the vast majority of its money from subscriptions.
because torrenting affected the market
Yeah, ignore facts.
It's just another proof of how fucking ridiculous US movie industry is now.
Its more than enough for western neckbeards.
I'd rather get a Gundam game that doesn't play like a mix of arcade shit and something with a disney-tier color palette.
All Gundam stuff should be on the level of 0083.
Yes we know that but one stupid fuck can ruin everything very quickly with "why bd cost so much" bullshit.
They're actually planning on introducing Wonder Woman and Flash.
And Madoka do not rely on disc sales.
Madoka BD's made 35 million $. Merchandise made over 400 million $.
>GoT is a big horse of HBO which has 8 million subscribers who pay 50 bucks a month
Yeah, i am sure they would trade the rights for GoT with Madoka any day.
Gundam EXVS is amazing though.
Now add the merchandising to the equation.
Anime is trying to break out of its otaku niche trap.
Of course Japan wants to be like Hollywood. Who doesn't want to take in billions?
they tried doing the green lantern and that movie was terrible and bad.
>50 bucks a month
I opened this thread hoping to see news on G-Reko or Origin, what a disappointment.
lmao delisunal madofagits thinking their SHIT show matters
>who pay 50 bucks a month
More like 10$ a month.
"Every continued discussion about anime will sooner or later be talking about Madoka."
>50 dorf bucks a month
now that is ridiculous
Actually it does matter but you're just trolling so I won't bother to explain why.
That's because it was a CGI fest, casting a douche like Ryan Reynolds and practically killed his origin.
Waiting on John Stewart version. ;_;
>Horseshit. BB is 10x more popular than GoT. Companies paid $400k for a 30-second ad during the final episodes.
BB almost got cancelled and if it wasn't for Netflix it wouldn't be near that big.
shouldn't madoka be stretched in horizontally instead of vertically?
>Of course Japan wants to be like Hollywood
No, they don't. Hollywood is horseshit.
Average Hollywood blockbuster costs 150-200 million $ + 50-100 million marketing campaign.
That and the fact they only get around 60% of box office means movies need to make over 600 million to make any real profit.
>/a/ talking about /tv/shit
You all look like retards.
who the fuck would want to watch that?
Than it would be wide and nobody would give a shit because Madoka always goes WIDE
You know Rebellion already beat Disappearance and T&B movie long ago right?
Feminists who the fuck else.
forest gump and return of the jedi have both technically never made a profit.
How is that amazing?
The Tiger and Bunny and Haruhi TV anime sold less than Madoka as well.
Thats why he himself will direct the live action.
RotJ made it's profit through toys.
Dem Ewoks were there for a reason.
>not liking our Princessa of Themyscria
>being this pleb
Face it, if she was an anime character, you'd all be flocking towards her.
>if she was an anime character,
she's not so your point is moot.
Holy shit how have I never seen this.
A WAR RAGES

GUNDAM: LEGEND OF THE WHITE GIANT AND THE RED COMET
Holy fuck. The Madokafags here are retarded. The GoT logic is fucking retarded. HBO is a subscription based service. The fucking S3 finale brought in almost SIX million on a channel that relies on subscriptions. The Breaking Bad finale had 10m viewers. Honestly you are fucking delusional if you think anime series sells more than a popular western TV show. Game of Throne as a franchise is bigger than Madoka.
>B-BUT THE BUDGET!! THE COST TO MAKE THE SHOW!!
Do you think HBO is retarded? They have given them an even bigger budget as of lately. Why is this? Because the show is making more money
Madokatards getting BTFO.
>HBO has 114 million subscribers worldwide. Thus, it's likely Warner receives at least $76 a year, or $6 per month, from each HBO cable subscriber.
>From the people that brought you Dragonball Evolution
>GUNDAM WARS! IN THEATERS SUMMER 2015!
Rebellion is doing better than first Rebuild and about as good as the second one. That's crazy good.
how the fuck do otaku get all their money to buy that crap?
I thought they were NEET.
dragonball evolution was not based on dbz
Leeching parents and short time jobs.
They also only eat cheap instand soups. So they can afford spending all their money on one single show.
Wow. That response in the cap is damn stupid.
I don't agree with the original entirely, but the response is just all over the place, lacks a central point, and doesn't even address all the original points. It starts off solid enough, but just jumps all over the place and can't find a focused argument, which the original at the very least does.
I always assumed they leeched their parents or had a job related to otaku shit and otaku != NEET
Hey, at least it won't be as bad as Kite.
Neither GoT nor BB turned over 400 million $ pure profit.
But Titans are Zeta, not 0079
nor would anything made in Hollywood with gundam in the title.
Dragonball was based on db, when goku was five. People were let down because when they think dragonball they think super saiyan and dbz shit.
though i've never watch evolution I did hear it took place with goku in highschool
I dont seem to recall that being in DB
GoT S1 costed 60 million dollars, idiot. HBO revenue is over billion dollars, and it gets most its profits from subsribtion. But even so, GoT DVD OUTISDE of USA alone earned around 2.5 milllion each.
As popular? Of course not.
Doesn't change the fact that big anime like Madoka are insanely profitable.
Yea, it also didn't have super saiyans or power levels which is what the franchise is most famous for.
>Gundam piloted by american
>they changed the name into Gunmech because gundam is silly
>100% transformer CGI
>Directed by michael bay
>80% plot is about patriotism to homeland
>only 10% of screentime contain gundam
>zeon changed for fear of insult the jew zionist
It's supposed to be a joke.
Like we all know they're enemies in the original, but knowing hollywood, it'll become a buddy-cop(soldier) movie where they team up against the bigger evil.
GoT is way more popular.
why are we talking about madoka now?
>HBO revenue is over billion dollars
And Madoka made over 400 million. In just one country. At the fraction of GoT costs and risks involved.
Anyone thinking that anime industry has problems needs their head checked.
But not as profitable.
Because it had actually budget and quality control.
And that changes... what exactly?
Rebellion cant even beat a single Detective Conan movie, none of the like 20. This year as well.
Total rebellion box office:
Private Eye in the Distant Sea:
3.6 billion yen
Really, Madotards seems to be braindead.
>Together with “The Walking Dead,” and “Mad Men,” “Breaking Bad” helped AMC become an advertising powerhouse: the network’s ad revenues leaped by 14% last quarter, to $147 million.
>147 million per quarter
So that's below 600 million a year for the whole network. With The Walking Dead, Mad Men and Breaking Bad along with tons of other crap.
Can you now see how insanely incredible 400 million $ for Madoka really is?
Not to mention the T&B movie was a partial recap. Rebellion is obviously doing very well, but these two comparisons make zero sense.
That's ad revenue. What about the subscriptions?
>005 One Piece-------4.23%-------64,888,200,000
>006 PreCure series-------4.14%-------63,507,600,000
>011 Gundam series-------2.19%-------33,594,600,000

>089 Jojo's Bizarre Adventure-------0.12%-------1,840,800,000
>100 Nanoha series-------0.10%-------1,534,000,000
That's fiscal 2012, a weak year for Madoka with pretty much nothing new coming out, and it still made twice as much as Detective Conan.
wait there was a T&B movie?
It's not a subscription channel like HBO. Those don't have adverts.
They get very little from cable subscriptions.
I read the Nikkei article which is source of this information. It does not state Madoka "made" 400 million dollars, it stats Madoka merchandize market including all anime and products is estimated at around 40 billions yen. Its not "profits".
For comparison, Gundam franchize as a whole is length over 5 billion (was when Wing aired, dont remember the newest bandai estimates).
A partial recap in late 2012. Another one (a sequel) is opening in theaters next month.
No news on G-Reko?
Is Kotetsu going to die in the movie?
Madoka aired in 2011, conan is 20 years old. And this the movie made in the same year as Madoka, beat it with almost tiwce a result in box office.
In 2015 no one will remember Madoka, but Conan still will be there. And 16.. and 17.. and 20 and...
You guys realize that a Gundam movie would end up being a power armor movie about a band of soldiers that learn the government is evil, rich people are ruining everything, and then ends with everyone but the protagonist and his girlfriend dying as they go off to live a simple life right?
>In 2015 no one will remember Madoka
He's not alone.
Sounds like something that Neill Blomkamp would direct.
>watching Sydney get colony drop'd on a big screen
>the Gundam movie is highly unoriginal compared to Edge of Tomorrow, the concept of "Newtypism" is clearly a deeply offensive jibe at the fine actor Mr Tom Cruise and his gentle religion of Scientology. - New York Times review, 2015
Nothing. Unless Tomino uses the press conference to announce it or show a PV.
It'll be Beijing instead.
>but Conan still will be there. And 16.. and 17.. and 20 and...
And still publishing. GODDAMN IT JAPAN STOP IT! At this point he should be grown up anyway.
>In 2015 no one will remember Madoka
You said the same back in 2011.
The only reason why i still remember it is because of the endless shitpost circlejerk on /a/
>MUMIS MUMIS XDDDD DON'T LOSE YOUR HEAD

Don't forget the meguca meduka, poorfag, endless Sayaka is a bitch and shaking mami.
Good lord leaving my feelings on the show aside, this has been really one of the worst fanbases we've had since the split with /jp/
Are you talking shit about mai waifu?
Tanks can't process COURAGE AND GUTS, or getter rays, for that matter.
Getter Rays will possess whatever the fuck they want to.
But, gundam is already about like half those things.
>>051 Natsume Yuujinchou-------0.34%-------5,215,600,000
I always feel good knowing this does so well.

That's like comparing Avatar: The Last Air Bender with Spongebob.
>In 2015 no one will remember Madoka

It's called a production committee.
