It probably should not get remade…but, this fan-trailer exposes hidden awesomeness in a live action Akira. Too bad Hollywood doesn’t see it that way. Reports have already come out saying that the upcoming Hollywood Akira will be based in the Akira universe not a remake….
I’m torn about this announcement. Hollywood always messes up remakes because it cannot capture that thing that made the original special (mainly because a ton of money is involved and they all want to see a return on investment). The investors need these movies to have the widest appeal possible but the audience who are really excited about movies like these, like them because they are not like every other movie out there.
Either way, this is a pretty cool (fan-made/”fake”) trailer.
