While Warners twiddles their thumbs making decisions regarding the long-gestured and development-riddled Akira, French filmmaker Fabien Dubois shared his 43-second fan-made trailer for Katsuhiro Otomo’s Manga and anime adaptation that’s visually remarkable. Too bad Chronicle beat him (and Warners) to it… and captured it better. It’s still pretty cool.
“Akira” originated in 1988 as a manga and then as an animated film co-written and directed by Katsuhiro Otomo. “Set in New Manhattan, the cyberpunk sci-fi epic follows the leader of a biker gang who must save his friend, discovered with potentially destructive psychokinetic abilities, from government medical experiments.”
