This movie has already been receiving controversy for months due to the total whitewashing of the story, which comes from a classic animated Japanese film. Many believe the story itself is so inherently Japanese that it could never translate properly into an Americanized, English language version. Yet they're going for it anyway. And of course, if you need a half naked robot running around kicking ass, who else is going to step in but Scarlett Johansson, right? Her typecasting at this point is almost ridiculous. I haven't seen the original film, but I probably should before this comes out, so I know what I'm getting into. This comes out in March of next year.
