I loved the Appleseed manga back in the day. At some point I've seen all three (?) anime movies and liked the last one best. It was produced by John Woo I think. If its being released this year it must be all finished and just the english dubbing needs to be done. It'll probably be streaming or DVD since I don't think these usually play in U.S. theaters.

When I saw the headline I thought it was like a Johnny Appleseed superhero movie or something.

Come to think of it, that's not a bad effin' idea.
