I dunno how I feel about this one, a solid mix of "YAY" and "Oh god how are they going to screw this one up"

You mean this is actually going to be a thing? I swear it's been stuck in Development Hell for like 20 years now...

Yep, it's the one project James Cameron has been wanting to make for decades now, but couldn't get off the ground until now.

Also, the massive eyes do kinda bother me, but given how everyone else looks in the movie it seems to be an intentional story choice rather than just trying to make the character look closer to the manga.

Not hoping for much here given every other anime to Hollywood adaptation (the only one that sorta worked was All You Need Is Kill being adapted into Edge of Tomorrow), so keeping a cautious eye on this one.

While the eyes look weird, i think it fits the theme of the film since she's a cyborg or something.

Let's hope the movie follows the manga instead of the lame anime.

The last time they do that, we get a Caucasian Major Kusanagi who is a former Japanese gal .

It's a lackluster adaptation of the manga since it's only a two-episode OVAs. In the Japanese origin, the manga is called Gunnm (pronounced as "Ganmu" more or less) and it features "Gally" or "Alita".

The funny thing is, the live action movie seems to try to match the actress' face with Gally/Alita to the point where they make her eyes big like in the manga :

Too bad there is no Desty Nova.

Tho I may be disappointed if they didnt cast Christopher Lloyd as Desty Nova. Like how I felt Ron Pearlman would have been perfect as Batou in GiTS live.

Kusanagi had caucasian body in the original.

As for the GUNNM what drives me away is not the eyes, who gives a damn about eyes? The real problem is R13 and the setting. What's up with those clean streats and fancy clothes? What's with their skin and what every they had instead of skin? It looks like they spend more time in front of the mirror than fighting for resources and food.

This should be postapocalyptic world, mix of Trigun and Mad Max. Even lower life even more hightech.

I'm really disappointed right now.

It's not only about the body. In GITS manga & anime, Motoko already knew her past (more or less) and it doesn't serve as a baggage to her. What makes it funny is that the main plot of the LA movie is basically one big excuse so that Motoko can be played by Scar-Jo . They should've dropped that silly Robocop plot and make Major a Caucasian through and through so that we can have a better story than Robocop regurgitation.

You haven't seen the movie? No wonder you didn't get my point. Watch it and witness how.....mediocre and boring the story is . Well, the setting looks nice so at least it has that going for it.

The big eyes somehow look better/smaller on the statues?

Not that familiar with Battle Angel personally, but that battle getup looks really cool!

Still hideous and won't be touching this movie purely on how dumb they made the lead girl look and their stupidly moronic reason for it.
