Giant Robot Comes To Life In First Live-Action PATLABOR Teaser!
One of the biggest anime-related news in 2013 was the announcement of the live-action Patlabor project, which will consist of a 7-part television series in 2014 and a feature film in 2015, with original creator Oshii Mamoru directing the feature film as well as some of the series' episodes. Long been a favorite amongst anime fans, the project is eagerly anticipated by a lot of people.

It has previously been announced that the new project will not be a remake of earlier stories, but will be telling the story of the next generation of Patlabors. The production cost is reported to be 20 million US dollars, which includes the creation of two 8-meter tall giant robots. 

The first teaser has just arrived, and in it we get to see the giant robot in motion. Check it out below!

This seems to lack any of Oshii's style or formal control. Disappointing teaser.

Most of Oshii's live action films haven't really been all that good, Avalon being the obvious exception. It's early days yet, so I would expect the footage to improve as we get closer to release, but this is already looking better than most of his live action stuff.

Oshii has style? I find all of his live action movies to be boring and lacking anything that would make me consider them "stylish".

Then you lack an understanding of the word "style".

Oh, the guy's just sitting in there.. I mean, the "pilot". I guess it can get pretty boring in there..
