The BD for the live action adaptation of Kite released today. That's a thing I guess, even Sam L. Jackson is in it.
Anyone gonna bother with it? It's probably shit, and I doubt they stayed faithful to the source material, considering the contents.
>live action adaptation of Kite
They were even fucking making one? That's embarrassing when even the die-hard fans aren't fucking aware there's even an adaptation being made, this shit's going to flop so hard.
Also fuck off, not anime.
>The discussion of "live action" television shows is permitted so long as they are distinctly rooted in, or based off of an anime or manga series.
>this is a movie
Nice try, pal. Next you're going to want to talk about the DBZ movie
>using poolyfaggot's rules as a guideline for what's allowed on /a/
Nah, fuck off.
>being this retarded
Quality doesn't determine what is or isn't /a/ related.
But no, nobody wants to discuss DB Evolutions.
>it literally says only TV shows
top jej, please go viral this shitty movie elsewhere.
It also says "manga series", but I bet it wouldn't be rule breaking to talk about the adaption of a one-volume manga.
What's with all these japanese adapted american movies coming out all the sudden?
So, has hollywood box office started to take notice that the reason why cable television is at an alltime low is because all the people they used to hook, line and sinker - into their shit broadcasting, have moved on to a superior form of entertainment? and now they're picking up japanese media to adapt because they know it will reach specific types of audiences that they would otherwise have limited to no access too without doing so?
I mean come on, edge of tommarrow, deathnote's soon to be released, kite, pacific rim's beginnings, and like 3 others I can't remember at the moment, big name movies.
Oh, DeathNote IS getting an american movie release by the way. Not sure who they're gonna cast as light yagami, but it'll probably be some big name up and coming american actor.
You're so fucking new it hurts.
If you werent here for the announcement of Kite's live action adaptation, you're under 6 months new on /a/
Stop posting and lurk moar, you faggot.
You're not understanding what I'm saying, it's not about what source material it's based off of, it literally says "live-action television shows" not movies
There's literally no reason to have this thread
>been here for 8 years
>forgot about a shitty adaptation's announcement
Yeah, I wonder.
>being this new
>That's embarrassing when even the die-hard fans aren't fucking aware there's even an adaptation being made, this shit's going to flop so hard.
We are aware you fucking faggot. We already had threads for this adaptation when the trailers were released.
>Also fuck off, not anime.
Jesus christ, lurk more you piece of shit.
>been here for 8 years
>attempting damage control this much
Newshit detected, post discarded.
I thought cable was doing fine, it's probably networks that are suffering. As for the Kite movie, it's a zero budget DTV film, no one is going to fucking see it.
>implying it's anime
It's a low budget 3D shit based off a 16 year old OVA, who gives a shit?
I already tried to tell them to fuck off and lurk moar.
There're so many newshits on /a/ right now, with all the naruto threads and F/SN threads that they're branching out into threads they don't belong and are shitting up the board.
Don't bother. They're new and didn't know about kite and the enormous discussions that were held about it, deathnote, and that other one I forget at the moment, edge of tomorrow I believe.
>You're not understanding what I'm saying,
No, you are ignoring what I am saying.
>it's not about what source material it's based off of,
That's all it is about. If there was no source material, it wouldn't be /a/ related. The source material is the important part. And because it is the important part, live-action stuff is allowed here if it's related to it.
Did this even air in theatres?
I remember hearing about it being announced and whatnot and seeing a trailer or 2, but then it just seemed to fall off the face of the earth
Is it just one of those direct to disc B-movies?
>Japanese adapted movie
>Not sure who they're gonna cast as light yagami, but it'll probably be some big name up and coming american actor.
There is only one.
I definitely am. The original material was pretty good after all.
Also, to everyone else saying fuck off or attempting to redirect to other boards due to not having been here long enough to have been in a live action adaptation thread.
Holy shit you're cancer, go back to your nurutu / SnK threads please.
You're confusing ignorance with being new, I completely forgot about this until today and I was in most of the threads.
I don't even think it's a real movie, I think it was made for Starz or something.
I believe it opened Friday but was extremely limited. My theaters didn't have it.
NO. I REFUSE TO BELIEVE THIS.
That's because Kite is shit.
Holy shit if that fucking happens I will lose it. but seriously though who would make a good Light?
>mfw this actually happens for the DeathNote adaptation
And dont forget that Disney is courting SHAFT DEEN KyoAni and Trigger
Since we're having a thread, is there any news on the Bebop adaptation? I pray every fucking day that it stays in development hell and eventually gets cancelled.
It's as dead as Keanu's sister.
That doesn't excuse you for not knowing rule #4.
BD is already out? I wasn't aware that it was even in theaters yet.
It got put on hold.
as dead as the comedian
Evangelion live action on the other hand will be decided by the upcoming superhero flicks
It went to on-demand first.
This looks like a straight-to-DVD movie.
can you imagine Monogatari serie on Disney'
Lets face it, It's a fan movie. But its a fan movie produced by a fan with oodles of money.
SLJ is a massive weeb.
Doesn't Anno finally own all the rights, though? I doubt he'd fucking agree to that
The day I see a green-lit US Eva movie is the day I kill myself, I literally can't imagine something worse happening to me.
>implying he wont agree to it just out of spite and some cash on the side
Thank god this release was so limited that no one went to see it. Now I can pretend that it doesn't exist.
As long as Bebop and NGE never get live action adaptations for western normalfags, I will never have another worry in my life knowing that they're safe
>As long as Bebop and NGE never get live action adaptations for western normalfags,
two words anon
No no no no
Don't even say shit like that, anon
Man i remember that article back in 2007 that said that he will never do TMNT
Yeah, but TMNT was 30 years old and had multiple series, and was American.
anon please stop triggering me i don't want amerilards ruining muh eva
>Zac actually likes Death Note, but believes an Asian actor would be better suited to play Light in a hypothetical American Death Note film
Kite's a pretty good movie for the /ak/ crowd. The new villain in the movie is a sex-trafficking kingpin called The Emir, so Sawa has an opportunity to remove kebab (literally, she uses skewers in a couple of fights)
dont you see the upcoming trends anon?
theyre adapting live action anime now since the success of Samurai X and the success of all you need is kill considering it was relatively unknown in the west and it was also an experiment
now theyre gonna try the big leagues and if you thin about it if a Eva film does become a reality and become successful who knows maybe we'll get Naruto, Bleach, AoT live action adaptations
I don't know why you're all upset at Western adaptations of anime & manga. You will have so many more filthy secondaries and casual normalfags to look down and sneer on from your super sekrit animu club treehouse.
wow i though no one knew kite
I've already seen it. It was called Pacific Rim.
Looks like shit. Just like the anime.
>the actors had to watch the original Kite before doing the film
I wonder who fapped.
Also how about that HBO Monster adaptation
KITE is one of Umetsu's best works, I'm interested to see just how badly it gets butchered.
And then Mezzo Forte?
I can't wait for Michael Bay's live action Gundam, full of feddie-wank and Doms being useless.
No one is going to watch this. We can feel smug when Deathnote gets an American adaptation.
I remember Samuel L. Jackson in one of those preview/interviews went something like "I've always been a huge fan of this particular material, uh, Kite."
He's definitely enjoyed parts of it.
I'll watch it. Seems good
No, Wizard Barristers
>Elijah Wood as Shinji
After seeing how much of a whiny beta he was in Wilfred, I could kind of see this working.
I mean no one is going to watch it that doesn't already know the source material.
The real question is, does SLJ fuck India Eisley or not?
I hope Eva gets a live action adaption just because I hate evafags.
I just looked up the trailer on Youtube, and how does it almost have 1 million views? I mean yeah having Sam L. Jackson must have some pull, but the only reason I'm aware of it is because of /a/. I imagined something like 250k being more realistic.
Heard they toned down on the rape.
In other words uninteresting now.
>I STILL haven't see Kite and the other one (forgot the name of that shit same director/studio y'all faggot nahm sayin)
I bet they removed all of it and had it implied in conversation only. They probably made the girl older as well.
you never know, the source stays away from the average jap bullshit.
If the actors did a good work it's an ok movie that's different from the usual crap Hollywood brings us these days
>not La Blue Girl
Its the only logical choice
>not Madoka with 30+ year old strong and independent women who don't need no man
I think I would actually watch this.
Unlike Kita, Mezzo Forte can actually be cut to just be a typical R-rated action romp, like something an unburdened and unrestrained Luc Besson would do. Kite's story relies on Sawa being brought up and sexually abused from Oburi, who killed her parents. Being uncomfortable and sexually cruel is central to the tone, you can't just cut that out. Maybe lessen the explicit genital shots, but not remove it.
It's pretty much objectively shit.
More like Meguca played by Sigourney Weaver.
>look down and sneer on from your super sekrit animu club treehouse.
Except those shits run along to /a/ and start posting without lurking. Just look at Fate threads and all the dirty secondaries there asking questions that would be answered by playing the VN.
sadly its even worse at harem threads
That it? I was 15 years ago faggot.
I was hoping to see it in theaters, but guess not.
