Akira is probably one of my all time favourite movies (not just animated but overall) and for years the live action version has been in development hell.
The latest version to collapse was one starring Robert Pattinson and set in New York, which any die hard fans know is that you can't really set it anywhere else than in Tokyo (what, are you going to call it Neo New York?!).
Here we have a fan made trailer for a crowdfunded type deal for a live action Akira movie. I must say, they did an awesome job. Kinda has that "Tron Legacy" vibe going.
