Patlabor Live Action Movie Gets a Trailer

Screen Shot 2014-02-10 at 6.35.24 AMThe Giant Robot / Slice of Life anime series Patlabor is getting a live action adaptation from director Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell).  Essentially, the series is a workplace comedy about police officers who pilot humanoid robots to fight humanoid robot-based crime.  Judging by the trailer, it looks like the real-life version retains the wacky Japanese-style comedy of the original TV series (and not the deadly serious tone of the anime films, which, incidentally, were directed by Oshii as well).

Watch the trailer HERE.
