Thank you very much Freitag and GhostLine!

I guess that explains why I couldn't find anything on her despite hours of searching. This will be very very helpful!!!! I appreciate it a lot!

I will definitely post a link when it's done. Should be sometime around the end of the month Smile

We of course still have the mullet. A very healthy mullet, that was one of the looks that we worked on for quite a while. With a mullet, there’s very different kinds of mullet. How big is the party in the back. We worked with the hair & makeup designer and Rupert, so rest assured, fans, we’re going to have the mullet.


Almost like the mullet is another character!
"A very healthy mullet"
"How big is the party in the back"

I love it!

For Japanese dub of the live-action film, Paramount is bringing the original voice actors from GitS '95 and S.A.C.

Viral ad site...where you can type I AM ________, and upload a photo for a personalized thing to share on social media. Don't get too excited.

First look at Art of Ghost in The Shell
http://www.forcesofgeek.com/2017/03/first-look-the-art-of-ghost-in-the-shell.html

Latest ads seem to lean toward a revenge-type story...less existential. Recent reviewer who attended IMAX event noticed that Major is actually Japanese, but is now named Mira and living in a cyberbody. This is what I guessed they would do a while back. Reviewer felt story is dumbed-down, but visuals are impressive.

OMG, it IS Robocop! I guess Hollywood figures that's all we can handle. So disappointed. For so many reasons. Argh.

On the plus side. Now that we have expectations set suitably low it'll be easy for the movie to impress.

This idea pretty much blew up in Paramount's face. Rule 1: Never allow folks to personalize a viral ad.

Oh cool. I d/l both and then used an online gif creator to make one with flashing eyes.

The link may only be active for a few hours.

Dunno if anyone is even interested, but here is the interview video I promised! Thanks for your help. I did actually ask her about her opinion on medical treatments from the story coming into reality by 2029 but the answer was kind of long and indirect so it was edited out. But thanks for the help.

For what its worth, I also watched the first 30 minutes of the film. It was actually really good. I'd definitely say give it a fair chance.

Thanks for sharing gs11!!!!! How exciting to meet all of the stars!

Here is recent post by Paramount "Building Jump Extended". Shows a little more of the Major's intervention of the attack on the business meeting. Looks good.
