Akira To Come out in Theatres

January 26, 2001

     Thats's right guys, Akira will be coming out in theatres this Spring. Now this isn't your average anime movie, this is one of the greatest anime classics ever made. This is one movie you don't wanna miss out on... Younger DBZN fans might wanna steer clear of this movie. Unless their are some heavy editing this movie will most likely be restricted to those under the age of 17.

Here is the info straight from Yahoo

HOLLYWOOD (Variety) - ``Akira,'' one of the earliest and most popular films in the Japanese anime film wave, is being restored in preparation for a theatrical re-release in the U.S. this spring.

Long Beach-based Pioneer Entertainment (USA), which specializes in Japanese animated programming, is spending $1 million on the restoration of the violent and gory science-fiction film released in 1988. Pioneer is planning to introduce the first DVD version of the cult favorite and a new VHS edition in the fourth quarter.

The picture, based on a comic book, follows teenage motorcycle gang members in post-World War III Tokyo who try to control one of their own members who rages out of control when he is given psychic powers as part of a military experiment.

The restoration being done by Intl. Video Conversions will include a high-definition mastering and a remixing of the audio components to create a soundtrack in Dolby Digital AC3 Surround Sound. A new English dub will also be created from a fresh translation of the original Japanese script.
