Get Your First Look At The Live Action PATLABOR

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Word of a live action version of early Oshii Mamoru (Ghost In The Shell) giant robot anime Patlabor first surfaced back in March, triggering a wave of speculation as to what exactly was coming. Spanning multiple movies, OVA projects and a television series, Patlabor has proven a lasting favorite amongst fans thanks to its refreshingly blue collar and frequently very funny approach to the material and while producers of this new effort have remained surprisingly cagey about it we do know that it is a feature film project and that Oshii is somehow involved, though nobody is saying yet whether he is directing or involved in some other capacity.

What we do now know for sure, however, is what the giant robots themselves will look like. How? Check out the images in the gallery below! Remember you can click to enlarge!
