Oh, of course they use 50-metric men for Collosals.

Never go full retard again. Even medium high people can be changed into 15-metric titans thanks to computer.[/quote]

Does the casting call say anything about "not being a stickler for wearing clothing?"

Shocked

Good. I was worried the Titans were going to be CGI. Japan seems to be stuck in the 90s when it comes to clashing CGI with live action (Tetsujin 28, Death Note), and yet fully CG movies like "Advent Children" and the upcoming "Saint Seiya" movie look excellent.

Japan's filmmaking seem to lag behind Hollywood and their other Asian counterpart (South Korea, Mainland China). I mean I remember reading an article why Japan didn't do the Godzilla reboot when US did that instead. Couple of people pointed out this:

Quote:
The main problem is the budget, FX technology etc. Japan's movies suffered from awful quality and with today movie standard, nearly all movie required CG and Japan's are terrible. Look at the Partlabour movie, the mecha looks like a PS2 generated. Besides, Japanese movie tends to have much lower budget compare to Hollywood.


Quote:
I love Japanese cinema, but when it comes to films with heavy special effects, the production value looks stale. The Gantz duology I believe is the most expensive Japanese film(s) of all time, but the budget was no higher than, say, American Hustle.


That probably explain why Japanese films coming out these day (including the one that require a lot of special FX) tend to look subpar compared to Korean and Chinese films. I mean I don't see any recent Japanese films that can hold up to these films:

The Target: which recent Japanese film can hold candle to this film??

Drug War: Again, which Japanese films can hold candle to this one??

They'll probably just shoot from the hip up, anyway.

This film would have been better all CG or made in the US with Hollywood budget. I'm afraid of what this will look like D:

I suspect they'll wear flesh-colored (or chroma-keyed) shorts, so that they are "naked" minus genitals.

The actors will probably be shirtless for real, though. The titans in the anime pretty much all had beer-bellies, so the bar isn't all that high for beauty.

I think that's part of the reason why they're apprehensive. One might have thought, "Do I really want millions of people in Japan and around the world to see my beer-belly?"
