Word of a live action version of early Oshii Mamoru (Ghost In The Shell) giant robot anime Patlabor first surfaced back in March, triggering a wave of speculation as to what exactly was coming. Spanning multiple movies, OVA projects and a television series, Patlabor has proven a lasting favorite amongst fans thanks to its refreshingly blue collar and frequently very funny approach to the material and while producers of this new effort have remained surprisingly cagey about it we do know that it is a feature film project and that Oshii is somehow involved, though nobody is saying yet whether he is directing or involved in some other capacity.

What we do now know for sure, however, is what the giant robots themselves will look like. How? Check out the images in the gallery below! Remember you can click to enlarge!

VERY VERY COOL... Very cool. Goddamn, I really hope this turns out awesome.

the first 2 films are truly wonderful. Patient and intelligent. Hopefully the film will be the same.

I just hope it doesnt turn out like Innocense, which featured lots and lots of philosophical dialogue bringing the film to the ground.

I'm feeling so lucky - and frisky - to have a bunch of inside info on this project. It's gonna be damn cool, and much bigger and more extensive than anybody yet suspects. Announcements coming soon, from what I understand.

Truly excited. But I can't help but notice the bad photoshop work on the "Labor by the river" enlarged picture.

What are you talking about?

The picture is real.

JimAugust 16, 2013 4:20 AM

yeah, i'm trying to find errant photoshop data here; nothing in the larger format image.

The image has a telltale "halo" around the antennae and the feet - usually this happens when something is traced out of a background and composited into a new scene.

Thanks "Guest" ;)
Good one Casshern666 !
