Akira - Live Action Poster by whitetiger76 Akira - Live Action Poster by whitetiger76
Akira Live Action Poster
One of my friends is creating a live action fan trailer of the renowned manga-turned-anime “Akira”. The poster is above.

This poster had a professional team involved and then to achieve the right look. The Kaneda cosplayer had to be shot in such a way where we wanted the community to recognize the iconic image.

The director of this project felt like we (as fans) ought to take a shot at making our own adaptation. A chance to stick as close to the source material as possible. A chance to do Akira Justice.

Right now they are in pre-production. As you can see the poster attached is the first glimpse of the live action poster which we designed, faithfully recreating the poster from the 1988 anime.

I hope you enjoy the poster that was created!! Feel free to leave feedback.

From what i was told last week they are doing a casting call right now for actors for this live action fan trailer. Feel free to pass the word around.

The details..... The details are just simply amazing!! I love the way it portrays the original anime movie! This would make a great movie! I dunno how the about the mutation scene would work, but it would still be absuloutly amazing!! I would watch this alot and heck even have my friends watch it if it was a live action movie. I would hope they would keep the oiginal music because the soundtrack just out me in awe! So yes, this would make an amazing movie and I hope someone doesn't mess it up like they did dragon ball evolution. But I'm sure this would get a great profit! Great Job to whoever made this!

This is really well done, I am so scared of how they are going to do the live action movie next year, but hopefully they will pull it off. Great job though, did you cosplay to do this picture?

Okay this is beautiful, well made and almost exactly like the poster from the anime. It's perfect as far as I can tell, great work and I would love to see this trailer!
I might bring make the red a bit brighter (only very slightly) on both the bike and the cosplayer's clothing.

Also: Props for the bike, looks perfect. as well as remembering his goggles and the jacket! I would personally look forward to more images like this.

Now, is that a real bike? It's so spot on...

A lot of it has to do with the lighting techniques used. The jacket is red (not a bright bright red) but i can guarantee to you that it is a realistic looking red. We didn't want it to be that flashy where your eye is only taking in the jacket. While staying true to the series we tried to have everything in the picture complement each other.

Don't you wish it was real? - well i could say it is....but that is actual a 3D model - so no it is not real. :(

I'm glad you enjoy the poster. From what i heard this week - a teaser is actual being worked on now. lol. I can't wait to see it :)

i would say to follow the indiegogo page or to follow the twitter account for more information.
