Getting the first official look at the "Patrol Labor" — the giant, robotic suit the Japanese police force use to combat giant robot crime — is pretty cool by itself. But what's really cool? Discovering that Ghost in the Shell's Mamoru Oshii will be directing the live-action movie based on the classic anime!
They're making a Patlabor movie! And these could be the first pictures from the movie's set. That, or a new way for Japanese cops to keep the peace.
Debuting in 1988, Patlabor spawned a bunch of manga, anime and video games. Next year, it is getting a live action version.
By "video game movie", I do not mean movies that were adapted from video games. Oh, no.
