Fans Recreate Scenes From Akira In Gorgeous CG

Akira is one of the best and most beloved anime* of all time. Full stop.


This Concept Art For Chris Evans And Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Akira Is Shockingly Cool

The idea of a live-action American remake of the seminal anime movie Akira has always seemed like a disaster in the making to me, and the fact that the movie has languished in various forms of development hell seems to corroborate that idea. But after seeing this concept art of Chris Evans and Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the Kaneda and Tetsuo roles, I almost want to change my mind.


The Director Of The Shallows Talks Shark Sex And Moving On From Akira

Since The Shallows is a shark movie, director Jaume Collet-Serra researched the crap out of sharks in preparation — the result of which is a film that explores aspects of the creatures we’ve rarely seen before. The weird thing is that the director himself doesn’t see The Shallows as a shark movie.


Could The Akira Movie Be Moving Closer To Reality?

Director Jaume Collet-Serra released The Shallows this week but, before that, he was long attached to adapt Akira into a live action film. It didn’t happen. “It is very difficult,” he told us of the task. “It’s bigger than film.” Well, there may be some movement on that front after all.


Tokyo Is Now Like Real Life Akira

If you think Akira’s glowing vehicles were just a fantasy coming from Katsuhiro Otomo’s mind you are wrong. Bōsōzokus — biker gangs — existed before Akira and, as you can see in this video, they still drive their extravagant modified vehicles through the roads of Tokyo.


Live-Action Akira Trailer Made By Fans Is Surprisingly Cool

Akira may be the greatest anime movie of all time, and thanks to the hard work of some very devoted fans, it’s been brought to life in this seriously impressive live-action trailer. The trailer has all the whiz-bang effects, drama and fast editing you’d expect from a big-budget hollywood movie.


Daft Punk + Kanye + Otomo = The Best Thing You'll Watch Today

You know what makes Daft Punk’s “Better, Stronger, Faster” even better? Mashing it up with Kanye’s “Stronger”. And you know what Akira makes even better? Everything.


Could An Alternate Akira Movie Actually Get Made?

Warner Bros holds the film rights to Akira, but the official project is on hold — and has been for some time. Could an alternate version of Akira from a French director actually get off the ground?


Heatswell: If Tetsuo Was A Coffee Cup Sleeve

Genius: a cup sleeve that expands via endothermic reaction when the cup is filled with hot liquid, insulating your hot coffee and keeping your hand from getting roasted. Utterly horrifying: the end of this video.


Akira Bike Replica Will Bring Out The Mini-Rebel In You

The year is 2019. You’re in post-World War III Tokyo. There are some bad guys calling themselves The Clowns. You battle. You win. You leave on your highly-customised bike. You wake up in 2009 and pre-order a replica of that bike.
