    LOL at so many people saying the chick from Pacific Rim would have been a better lead actress. Literally no one went to see Pacific Rim because of her. Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I went to see that movie to see giant robots fucking shit up against giant monsters.

    This. Will people stfu already? They sound like they were born on this Earth yesterday. No one wants to pay to watch a film with a second tier actor/actress and no one wants to shell out tens of millions to make a movie with a second tier actor/actress. Get over it!

    Actually they did, the most recent whitewashed film 'Aloha', based on a true life story of an half asian woman starring Emma Stone, prominent in the story line is that the woman although half white looked mostly asian, thats actually a part of the story. Emma Stone don't look asian to me.

    Here is the full cast. Movie absolutely bombed too, complete financial failure:

    Bradley Cooper
    Emma Stone
    Rachel McAdams
    Bill Murray
    John Krasinski
    Danny McBride
    Alec Baldwin

    From the trailer I actually liked the dystopian atmosphere and environment they seem to have created.
    But it's clear that they have changed the original theme quite a bit. The original theme of GOTS is probably a bit too high brow, to be made into a blockbuster movie.
    The trailer also reveals that the major is much more human, than in the anime/manga. This is not only based on the fact the plot seemlingly revolves around the major having to refind her human origins, but you can also see that Johansson uses a lot of facial expressions to express emotion.

    The original theme was based on exploring the nature of consciousness, memories, DNA and subsequently life, in the lens of a cyborg with no sentimentality but a certain curiousity.

    Perhaps I'll watch this one. I doubt it will wauw me the way the original anime did. But perhaps they'll manage to make an entertaining movie in their own style. Let's just hope it won't be another Æon Flux.

    Doesn't seem like she's coming back for the sequel. But it's still early, maybe there'll be a late casting for a cameo appearance.

    Japan: 99% Japanese, 0.3% white, international revenue makes up 5% of total revenue.
    U.S: 63% White, 5% asian, international revenue makes up 50% of total revenue.

    There are 15x more asians in the US than whites in Japan by percentage.

    For ppl complaining why arent they asian.

    First of all almost every anime has based their looks from western influence.

    Secondly, this is a hollywood movie. Unless the major star power demographic is asian most people will probably see it. Until then deal with it.

    That said kinda reminds me of blade runner . Will see for sure.

    the main demographic still makes up white people. And Scarlett Johansson has a bigger name value in asia than some random asian american actress.

    Mental gymnastics as usual, and what does that have to do with AoT movie made in Japan? I give you statistics, you give me circular reasoning. We've spoken before Yod, you and I both know what you are.

    Later Uncle W.
