"So it will be a dystopian kind of..." gets interrupted "How many roles will a short haired Milla Jovovich be playing? Can it be on another world? Can it have zombies too? What are her special powers? What kind of races do we have to omit to make sure China will watch it? Can she drive an AUDI? Can we put MLB logos on the weapons?" Movies in 2018 are just so fun.

This is literally sounding like Gate with modern soldiers going into a fantasy world and beating monsters and magic with modern military using the monster hunter game name...

Count me interested regardless of the reception i have to at least check this out in cinema.

"Isekai" what the crap? Japan didn't invent the "person sent into another universe/dimension" genre, unless you think Chronicles of Narnia is "Isekai"

Hey, it’s better than the first Instagram photo, which looked like a Gulf War movie.

I'll have you know I knew the Gulf War, and sir, it was no John F Kennedy.

(I'm trashing 4 things at the same time here. Sorry. Saw a time yahtzee.)

Chronicles of Narnia is isekai tho...

Also me calling something isekai doesn't mean its Japanese, its just an easy way to say "transported to another world". This is based on a Japanese game tho.

All these Isekais and yet no Escaflowne movie.

Right now I'm picturing Milla Jovovich as Hitomi Kanzaki... with a gun!
