‘Ghost in the Shell’ Super Bowl Spot Will Steal Your Life
‘Ghost in the Shell’ Super Bowl Spot Will Steal Your Life
Ah, the Super Bowl: the one magical night each year in which the nation unites under the binding forces of domestic macrobrewed beer, buffalo chicken wings, and good ol’ American football. Everyone’s got something to enjoy at the big game, whether that’s the competition itself or, for those of us unable to enjoy sporting events due to PTSD over a childhood of getting picked last, trailers for a movie in which Scarlett Johansson plays a sexy police robot. The Super Bowl regularly doubles as the premiere for a handful of brand new previews of upcoming blockbusters, and Paramount has done us all the solid of giving us a three-day jump on the fun.
Best Cosplay Ever (On A Ship): Fan2Sea Comic Con Cruise 2017
Best Cosplay Ever (On A Ship): Fan2Sea Comic Con Cruise 2017
The first ever comic convention on a cruise took place last weekend on Royal Caribbean's Brilliance of the Seas sailing from Tampa, Florida, to Cozumel, Mexico. Despite the unusual venue, Fan2Sea featured everything you'd expect from a landlocked con, including panels, signings, parties, screenings and, of course, cosplay. Being out at sea didn't stop these dedicated cosplayers from pulling out their best looks, often with a strong nautical theme, whether it was a seafaring Deadpool or two, or a watery Disney villain like Ursula or Tamatoa. ComicsAlliance was on the scene, courtesy of Fan2Sea, to capture some of our favorite cosplay on the cruise. This is the best cosplay ever... on a ship!
The Original ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Will Return to Theaters
The Original ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Will Return to Theaters
Before Scarlett Johansson launched a thousand essays by taking on the role of Motoko Kusanagi, the cybernetic crimefighter was nothing more than a drawing. The original Ghost in the Shell anime debuted in 1995 and blew audiences away with its futuristic cyberpunk aesthetic, influencing everything from The Matrix to the Star Wars prequels. In the film, the robotic government agent cuts through the dystopian world of 2029 in search of the Puppet Master, a sentient computer virus taking over human hosts and causing havoc. The film’s flashy Hollywood remake is only a couple months away on March 31, but before that, the original will infiltrate theaters in a special engagement.

Screen & Page: Behold The Power Of The King In 'Code Geass'
Most anime is adapted from manga, often produced by the manga publisher to raise awareness and sell it overseas. But what about the anime shows or films that go the other way, adapted from the screen to the page? How do those works hold up, and what changes or stays the same? That’s what Screen & Page aims to explore. Today, we're talking about the most successful anime of the 2000s which wears its messy heart on its sleeve: Code Geass!

‘Ocean Waves’ Trailer Heralds First U.S. Theater Release
It’s been an exciting time for Studio Ghibli fans. First, beloved director Hayao Miyazaki assured us all a few years ago that he was leaving, before pulling a Favre and signing on for JUST ONE MORE project (sure), and now, for those fans who’d rather not scour the darknet for a bootlegged copy with mediocre-to-indecipherable subtitles, Ghibli’s 1993 film Ocean Waves is coming to American theaters for the first time ever in 2017.
