009 RE:CYBORG is the upcoming movie in the Cyborg 009 series. The story takes place after the events of the Cyborg 009 manga amidst a spree of worldwide bombings of skyscrapers in major cities. Written and directed by Kamiyama Kenji (Ghost in the Shell S.A.C, Eden of the East), the movie is being produced by Production I.G .
The film is made with 3D cel shaded to look like traditional 2D animation. 009 RE:CYBORG is set to begin screening simultaneously in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, and Korea on October 27, 2012.
Only 1 screen was planned but because so many people showed up, they quickly setup another screen - a total of two screens for industry folks. This screen slowly filling up - took this snap but didnt realize that Takashi Okazaki is smiling at the camera ^^;
Which cyborg would you like to have as a buddy?:Ivan Whiskey :Jet Link :Françoise Arnoul :Albert Heinrich :Geronimo Jr. :Chang Changku :Great Britain :Pyunma :Joe Shimamura
The movie is visually a joy to watch which comes complete with an intriguing story - dont go to the toilet during the show or you may loose track of whats going on! Director Kamiyama has done a fab job and fans of his previous works such as Ghost in the Shell SAC and Eden of the East will love this flick.
If you do get to watch the movie then watch right up until the end of the credits - you will see me in there somewhere ^^;
