The strengths of your name. are 100% the strengths of the first movie in the new Star Trek series. I honestly don't think I'd be able to say if one or the other were better (the first one, not "Into Darkness" or the third, which I didn't see). I'd rank them about the same.

They're actually really similar, now that I think about it. your name. is probably more like that Star Trek movie than any anime I've seen. It's almost like that Star Trek movie with an anime filter on it.

If it were Christopher Nolan, that would be a bad choice.


. . . . . . . . I wish Kenneth Branagh would do something based on an anime... that would be really great.


Well I haven't seen it but the synopsis sounds nothing like Star Trek...and sounds much more like Memento or Interstellar


In fact these article claim "Interstellar" was an inspiration to Shinkai

Shinkai has said that Interstellar by Christopher Nolan was an influence, and you can tell from the cosmic otherworldly stills.

Q-Did you have any cinematic influences?
A-Interstellar by Christopher Nolan. I saw it while I was making this film, and I found quite a few similarities

Why do people get upset when someone produces a thing they don't like?

The things you like are still there. Nothing has happened to them.

People got upset enough to send death threats to the director of the Death Note adaptation. This community is not exactly the most mature.

Depends, it seems like a general interest for the actual film from what I have heard, while works like Dragon Ball Evolution, The Last Airbender, and Death Note were cash ins by foreign western companies.

Anything without care generally will not work, especially when applied to the artistic medium.

Well, honestly, I don't think Dragon Ball could ever be adapted to a decent live action movie. They would have to twist the source material so much that it ceases to be Dragon Ball.

There have been Western remakes of Japanese properties that are considered pretty decent though. The Yul Brynner Magnificent 7 for one. Although that movie is a little dated now, and I actually prefer the Antoine Fuqua version.

A good film depends on both good source material and good screen writing, casting, directing and production.

Death Note wasn’t a cash grab. You might hate it, but you don’t spend 50m dollars and tie it to a subscription service if you want to make a lot of money.

I'm all for Western entertainment taking inspiration for Japanese and non-Western entertainment. Just as Japanese and non-Western entertainment takes inspiration from Western entertainment. It's this circle of inspiration that's gone on for thousands of years. But Hollywood has a really, really, really bad track record for adapting anime. It's one thing to redo say something like La Femme Nikita due enough cultural touchstones in common. The core "religious" ideas of Your Name just don't translate.

when Japan news and American both state similar stories then it's probably true. I'll watch it and judge according.

Sci-fi love story?? SCI-FI LOVE STORY??? I'm sorry, but that actually made me laugh
While I don't usually have much faith in live action adaptations, I think I'll give this a shot before judging it. I mean...it could be interesting to see where it goes, right?
Tbh though, I don't really have high expectations for this. Part of the reason I loved Your Name was because the landscapes were beautiful, which I just don't think could be captured well in live action, especially Mitsuha's town. There's also a lot of things in it that seemed based around Japanese culture (such as the Kuchikamizake ritual and the festival), which probably wouldn't transition well into a Hollywood movie.
On the bright side, it is gets the film more publicity, then all the better.
