Actually, I'm not expecting anything, I think it will be a failure. Rarely do movies turn out good in comparison to the manga/anime. Kuroshitsuji is gold the way it is, this is just a way to squeeze out more money. I will probably watch it, but I don't expect anything of it.
I'm curious to see how this'll turn out. The story sounds interesting. If there's no Ciel and it's set in the future then I want to know what happens to Sebastian and how the story will lead from there.
Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of live action so I'm gonna pass, but I might have a peek at the beginning.
Uuuuuuh yeah I honestly have a bad feeling for this. Especially considering that the story is going to be different and that it takes place 130 years after the manga *head desk*
However, I'm going to watch it anyway just to give it a try. Who knows, maybe it'll be good or it'll be the worse thing since the adaptation of Uzumaki *shutters*
I'm half excited, half worried that it'll flop... excited that it will be a modern version though, I'd imagine the original would be hard to replicate with human actors... (considering the stuff Sebastian does...too many special effects might have come off as rather cheesy)
I have some faith in this. Rurouni Kenshi adaptation turned out AMAZING. I enjoyed Phoenix Wright one too
No need to judge before we even watch the show.
As long as people don't compare everything to the anime, it's all fine really.
Their decision to make it original storyline probably have to the with the subtle yaoi vibe in the series. This will be air in the theater for everyone so it's understandable if they change it up a little.

I mean how can someone do the inhuman activities Sebastian can do?
Its not by Hollywood so it can't turn out that bad
Yup~ example. Rurouni adaptation was freaking amazing, especially the action scenes.
So was Phoenix Wright. They even made the actors look the same as the game characters
As long as this movie was made in the same standards as the other two, it will turn out well.
Do people who say live actions tend to be bad only seen DBZ or something? Hana Kimi, the drama adaptation, was very popular in Japan. Rurouni Kenshin and Phoenix Wright are both box office hits and well received.
If it takes place 130 years after the episodes of the manga then I guess that makes it a modern day movie with Sebastian but not Ciel. It sounds interesting but I'd like to know more about the plot before I decide whether to watch it or not, seeing as the majority of the main characters will already be dead by then.
Kuroshitsuji as live action movie? Once a manga turns into anime, it's better to leave it until there. Will be able for Mizushima Hiro to have a similar tone of voice as Ono Daisuke did in the anime? I don't think that will work!
I am excited! Not expecting it to knock my socks off or anything. But i can't help be excited for something taking place 130 years in the future. I am just happy they aren't going to mess up the story.
