    Before anyone asks, yes this is a comic book movie. Appleseed was the first published manga by Masamune Shirow, the creator of Ghost In The Shell. He made it in the mid-80's, and it's still freaking amazing. Appleseed is in fact an even better manga than Ghost In The Shell.

    Here we have the trailer for the second Appleseed. FYI, the movie has a new distributor and English dub producer from the first one.

    The first movie was released in the US by the now defunct distributor, Geneon. Animaze did the English dub. The new English dub has new voice actors and was recorded by ADV.

    Warner Bros. Home Video is distributing the sequel.

    Here's the trailer on ign.com:

    Well you can certainly see the John Woo influence as he came on as a producer after becoming a big fan of the first movie. The movie looks a lot more dramatic, deeper, and epic than the first one, which was sort of a mixed bag for me. And I'm a nut for the Shirow manga.

    Unfortunately it looks like the movie still won't have the playful and humorous side of the Deunan/Briareos relationship. This is what I liked the most about the manga. Deunan and Briareos were this weird, hot couple.

    I think this looks a lot better than Beowulf. I would rather see this a 3D version of this in theatres than Beowulf as well.
