What we do know for sure is that the whole "Tales of the Black Ships" business was cut out entirely. Probably all the characters near or around the newsstand are gone (such as the butch cab driver).
Rumor is that
But I expect that the final confrontation will still take place, and the same death(s). But that's just my guesses.

I read the original Sam Hamm script a while back and the major difference was the ending. They scrapped that script though... Spoiler ending below (again, this wasn't the script used for the movie)
I didn't care much for that ending, so I was glad when I heard they scrapped that script. I'm a little anxious to see what they do to the ending though.

I had been really pleased with what I had seen so far, but the Japanese trailer gave me a sinking feeling.....

What that means for the movie? Well, at least it will be pretty.

Now, I've had no exposure to the graphic novel, so this is coming from someone completely outside the loop.
From what I've seen in both trailers (and given Japan's unique history), I'm not surprised they'd put more emphasis on the apparent alt-history and nuclear war aspects.
OTOH, the US has seen a recent run of fairly successful superhero movies, so of course they're going to put that front and center domestically.
