Ron Perlman or that crazy general from Avatar would have been a better fit for Batou, esp if they are making him white.

    Batou is white in every adaption. Motoko is a pale skinned Japanese woman.
    I think this movie will be awesome if I go into the movie theater thinking its Cybercity 2133 instead of Ghost in the Shell. It's like in the Ghost in the Shell: First Assault. Generic shooter with a Ghost in the Shell skin.
    Just don't get caught up in how the screenwriters took a generic story and plopped in some Ghost in the Shell imagery.

    I'm not a big fan on manga, so whilst I've seen Ghost in the Shell (original film) a couple of times, and also watched through the Standalone Complex, I'm not that knowledgeable about the IP. 

    That said, this film looks immense. It's got enough similarities to the manga that I can recognise whilst probably being a bit more accessible. The special effects look awesome, the story still looks good so I'm happy with it and really looking forwards to it. 

    I'm also just generally happy to see anything big budget and sci-fi.

    Harrison Ford will die in a plane crash before that ever gets finished.

    They made this right after the trilogy? I have to check it out, but judging from the trailer, I kinda like the recent trilogy better.

    No it's based on the anime Blade of the Immortal.
