I've been a fan of the Japanese anime Akira for an long time - since I first saw it with a group of friends in college back in, well...1989? Ahem...I mean, the first time I was in college. Yeah, it's been a while.

It's still one of the more mindblowing pieces of celluloid out there. Now, a group of people - Arcadian Entertainment, a group of indie LA filmmakers - are making a live-action trailer for the movie (presumably because it would be impossible to make a full-length live action feature on anything less than a Spielbergian budget) - check it out here. Looks like the project started in 2001 - anyone know if it was completed?

Speaking of comic-books-turned-into-movies, the buzz on the street says even with the star presence of Mr. J-Lo, 'Daredevil' is a dastardly dud. Surprahz, surprahz.
