Official Promo Art From Live-Action PATLABOR Movie

First promotional poster for the live-action Patlabor movie. The full-scale Patlabor mecha replica was previosly snapped in transport but we know have official promo stills from Tohokushinsha Film Corporation.

The promotional imagery was unveiled today at the Taiwan International Comic Exposition. The film is currently slated for a 2014 release and has secured the involvement of the anime's original director, Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell). Oshii has past experience directing live-action features but it is unknown whether he will actually direct this project or is merely on board as a consultant.
