In case the earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, and nuclear meltdowns didn't drive the point home.....Hollywood is planning to remake Akira. As a live-action movie. Rated PG-13. Yep, it's pretty much the end of the world. I think the only thing this video is missing is a comedy sidekick, played by some middle-aged actor who was funny 20 years ago. And there has to be at least one song by Smash Mouth.
Aaaand....After nearly five years of running this blog, I am now finally getting around to writing about Akira. I picked a good time to start watching doomsday movies, didn't I?
