IT'S HAPPENING!!

Fuck hollywood. They are gonna ruin Gundam.

Why must hollywood do this? Don't they have enough comicbooks to ruin?

fuck

There's nothing left to ruin, anon.

But not good
>>
there were Tekken and King of Fighters live action movies?
>>
Nothing has been said about making a Hollywood adaptation of Gundam. Besides which, a live action Gundam movie already exists.
>According to sankakucomplex.com
KDramaStars confirmed for worthless clickbait.
>>
>>100326533
I honestly don't care, I just hope this doesn't lead to more newfags coming here.

actually mite b cool. If it had really high quality special effects, good actors, and written with the Japanese creators I can envision a good movie.

There is literally nothing confirmed. Just that Tomino is supposed to be coming on to work on an anime/manga project that will be live action and CG. So the only actual confirmed bit of information is that everyone is going to fucking die.

I found an old copy at a used bookstore once. I knew it's reputation but figured it'd be worth it just to have. It was so scratched that the clerk refused to sell it to me. I'm not one to disregard fate's intervention and have never tried to acquire it since.

All that's confirmed is that Tomino is holding a press conference to talk about making movies. It's more likely going to be original shit than Gundam adaptions.

Can't wait for Armando Reyes to boldy pilot the Gundam (pronounced gun-dumb) against the forces of the Scion Empire (because Zeon is too close to Zion and you better not forget the 6 trillion, goy) and their ace pilot Charles Asbel.

It doesn't have to be good. It just needs to be astoundingly shitty and have Robin Williams as Gendo.

Also, thanks for the fucking reminder that this piece of shit existed. Now I'm going to get a "few" drinks to forget it

Why is Andy Samberg in that?
>>
isn't he already working on g-reko

Even if it's bad, it still has the potential to be like Bayformers, aka CGI porn and nothing else.

It would suck, but I'd still enjoy it just for the visuals.

Gundam did that already.

Hollywood movies are never good. Why do Americans think anybody wants to see their shitty adaptations?

That sounds terrible and not it loops back into being good terrible, just terrible.
>>
>>100328135
Because they do or else they wouldn't gross so much.

Gundam will probably flop too, most people will see it as a dumb Star Wars ripoff.
>>
>>100328132
I still can't believe how fun that barely-disguised toy commercial is.
>>
>>100328219
More like cheap Bayformers ripoff. Pacific Rim fell into that trap.
>>
If they partnered with Legacy FX it's a good news, those guys are a reference for prop design.
They aren't qualified for CGI graphics though, unless they build real and fully operational gundams.

tldr CGI scenes is gonna suck, mecha design will be faithfull to the original.

I guess we should thanks Pacific Rim ? If Gundam sells well we're going to see Eva next.
>>
>>100328135
Kungfu Panda outgrossed every domestic film during it's Chinese release. Hollywood understands Chinese tastes better than China does. Yet another example of how American cinema is the best thing since sliced Wonder® Bread and the rest of the world just plays ketchup.
>>
First the mtg movie and now this. Why must hollywood ruin things I love.
>>
What I hate about all these movies is they try to cram 50+ episodes into a 2 hour film. With narration and montages you could cut out a bunch of shit but some stuff would still be missing.

That being said a movie set in the One Year War could work, just make up some new scenario, it was a war that spread worldwide and in space, surely the cartoons haven't touched everything. And It doesn't have to be Oscar-worthy either, I'd settle for We Were Soldiers or Black Hawk Down.
>>
>>100328248
I still can't believe how mad people get when they realize it doesn't hid the fact.
>>
>>100328525
But you love shit and they keep producing it year after year.
>>
>>100328393
I don't think we'll ever see a live action Eva movie. If it's made for Japan it'll flop super hard in the west. If it's made for the west Japan would kill Anno and hang his corpse from the giant statue of Rei. Gundam is maybe workable but Eva is a no go.
>>
>>100326533

Hopefully a robot/kaiju renaissance will happen. I'm sick of superhero/zombie movies infesting hollywood

I'm a fan of the fact that Marvel is making a shit ton of movies, I mean they might fail, but fucking guardians of the galaxy of all things is getting a movie.

>>100328626
We don't have a movie because copyright ho├žlders are blaming each other for years and can't get a proper deal.

Late UC is fine. OYW-era is crowded enough as is. Actually, retcon G-Saviour while they're at it.

If they can't work out the finances imagine how well it would go when they get down to rewriting the script, much less casting. It'll never happen man, just isn't meant to be.

Why don't they just do an 8th MS Team Live Action. I could see that working fairly well.

They couldn't work out the finance because Hollywood didn't cared enough.
If they try stuff with Gundam there is no reason to not try stuff with Eva as well.
It's like I want to see it though Hopefully fans will destroys the studio when the horrible first trailer will be leaked

If that's all you're judging on, then by all means go ahead. It's nice, but a show needs more to rely on than just being pretty.

>mfw studio Kara is bought by MGM.

Even if they don't get the rights I can see them doing a generic blockbuster pandering to Eva / mecha fans, Pacific Rim was already screaming of references.

It's going to be Pacific Rim but just fighting other mechs..
man, why did the main character have to be so generic... why couldn't they have fun with it..? WHY CAN'T THE MAIN CHARACTER JUST DIE?

>>100330736
it was forced. just because people have been throwing the word onto anything and everything falsely these days doesn't mean that nonsense felt natural in any way during pacific rim.
>>
>>100330857
it's not like they can't pull it off, I even was quite pleased with the whole "falling is easy" line the main character threw out, but they're just too scared to let the main character die.
>>
>>100331278
There wasn't any romance in Pacific Rim. At all. That's why we're laughing at you.
>>
>>100330789
For Pacific Rim I think it's more Del Toro influence's than Hollywood's but it's the same in the end.
If they tried to pander to Evafags with a movie made from scratch, it would be much, much worse than Pacific Rim.
>>
>>100331423
I wasn't that poster, but I certainly sympathized with his complaint.
Are you saying it literally had no romance, or that what was on display was so low it couldn't even be considered romance? Because I agree with the second one.

>>
>>100331709
They devoted scenes to having the heroine just check out the shirtless hero. I just want to actually believe there is an emotional connection going on for once instead of instant attraction just to fill the quota of make out scenes.

I'm willing to concede I might be blowing it up, I haven't seen the movie in a while, so I'm going off of the memory of what I thought at the time.
>>
>>100331521
I'd agree. Pacific Rim is(unfortunately) the best case scenario for a Hollywood made giant robot movie.

I'd love to see a really well executed live action Eva, but it would actually be easier to put a man on Mars.

If they go for something serious like Saving Private Ryan then yes a main character dying would be justified but if they just want to have a group of fun characters kick ass for 2 hours I don't see the point in killing one of them.
>>
It worries me that they are using a picture from my favorite Gundam series for this travesty.
>>
>>100331901
This is only partially related but I want to complain... I wish Hollywood movies would stop making all of their fight scenes super blurry and close up. In the case of CGI, I understand it helps cover up some of the unnatural aspects, but even in purely choreographed, person against person scenes, I want to actually be able to enjoy the martial arts or 'one versus many' aspect.

Except they forgot to make the main character fun. Most of the other pilots got to be quarky and over the top, but they killed them off as soon as possible. All we had left was the American, and because it's Hollywood, they won't poke fun at him specifically.
