While we wait, and wait, and wait, and wait for Hollywood to get off their rears and actually move forward with the long gestating live-action Akira remake, a group of fans have taken it upon themselves to create a crowd-sourced trailer where they would have a, “…chance to stick as close to the source material as possible. A chance to do Akira justice.” Trust me when I say that they’ve succeeded!
After completing an Indiegogo campaign in July 2012, the team has been working diligently for a year and a half to create the ultimate fan-made trailer, which quickly became a “…global endeavour…involving more than 40 artists in 12 different countries.“.
Watch the awesome trailer below and then learn more about the project by visiting the official Akira Project site.
