They choose good likeness actors. This film ain't never going to be made at this rate, though. Warner Bros. has been trying to make a movie for the last 12 years, and here we still are, barely closer than then.
10/10 would see.
i just hope they never ever do a live action akira movie (it would suck most certainly) but still....why the fuck it's in english?ffs just make it like the original and read the subtitles you lazy fucks!
A war is coming, I've seen it in my dreams. Fires sweeping over the Earth, bodies in the streets, cities turned to dust... retaliation.
Hollywood is out there. It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until everything you love is dead.
Chronicle is about as close to a Live Action Akira as we are every likely to see.
6/10 because of the music! Geinoh Yamashirogumi for ever!
99% really really hard? Over exaggerating a wee bit there.
Japanese voice actors are annoying depending on the content. I think gibili studio chooses good mature voice actors.
this kind of reminds me of casshern, man i need to go and watch that movie again.
I'd love to see a true Akira made with a budget to put a Peter Jackson film to shame, but I just know they'd royally fuck it up, just like the film industry does to most things awesome and cool. It'd probably be made as a superhero movie with Kaneda being the renegade sidekick, Tetsuo a cape wearing semi-Japanese version of Superman, and have a love interest arc that ate up 40 goddamn minutes of the footage, all fighting the gubment for the freedomz.
Akira is a bit confusing. Casuals will totally mess that up. The main characters of the movie are Kaneda(with the bike and lazer), and Tetsuo(with the TK).
Akira is BARELY in the movie. only appears in flashbacks, and to end the movie. Akira is what happened "31 years ago".
the MANGA its based on, has a quite a bit different story. its much longer, and Akira is actually a main character in it.
The movie is volume 1, about 50% of volume 2, mixed with about 30% of volume 6. 3-5 are missing entirely.
Go watch Akira.
And yeah, Supernatural guy I would like to see as Kaneda really.
I have owned two different dubs. The first one when I was a kid on VHS and it was great. I downloaded another a few years back and jesus it was terrible, TERRIBLE. Now I have no idea how to tell which is which because I am not a weabboo, so I haven't tried to get it again.
A year and a half in post production all for that fucking trailer, jesus.
If someone points out a good 720p/1080p rip for Akira on IPT or someplace like that, I'll download it and watch it. I *might* have watched it years ago, like right after college or something (which was over 20 years ago, was it out then?), so it is possible I've seen it, but I don't remember a goddamn thing. I did have that one friend that kept trying to get us to watch anime, and I distinctly remember Ninja Scroll being not too terrible, but he probably made us watch Akira too. It didn't stick though, if I did.
The 25th anniversary DVD/Blu-ray has both dubs I think but I haven't gotten around to buying it.
The only thing more confusing to me than the different Akira versions is Neon Genesis Evangelion.
and yes, I believe the trailer is completely fan made.
One day I hope to be as attractive and well spoken as Tuco!
Evangelion is the most disturbing, confusing and mind fucking thing ever.akira is really straightfoward in comparison.
I saw Akira on VHS when I was around 7th grade. I was too young I think. It was overall boring.

The digitally remastered a version for the 25th anniversary, re-released it and made DVDs and BluRays out of it. I highly recommend watching it in one of these magnificent versions if you never saw it or only have distant childhood memories of it, because it remains to this day the pinnacle of traditional animation by a significant margin. The movie is not without narrative flaws, but it's jaw dropping scene after jaw dropping scene from a technical standpoint. And, as previously mentioned, the score is one of the most singular and iconic piece of film music there is. A masterpiece in more ways than one.
