Ghost in the Shell’s Mamoru Oshii is directing the live-action Patlabor movie so it should be amazing.
Robots called “Labors” are employed in heavy construction work. The Tokyo Metropolitan Police has its own fleet of Patlabor robotic police officers to combat crimes and deal with accidents involving Labors. The story arcs usually revolve around Tokyo Metropolitan Police Special Vehicle Section 2, Division 2.
The new pic and poster were revealed at the Taiwan International Comic Exposition on Thursday and the movie’s official website.
