Concept art of Warner Bros’ defunct AKIRA live-action remake

Comicbookmovie:

Conceptual illustrator James Clyne (“Avatar”), has updated his website with artwork that he created for OblivionEnder’s Game, and Warner Bros. never-produced live-action remake of Akira.

In 2002, Warner Bros. acquired rights to make a live-action remake of Katsuhiro Otomo‘s Akira. Plans for it didn’t start to really materialize until 2008. That is when Irish short film director Ruairi Robinson (“The Last Days on Mars”) was brought on board to direct.

At that time, the script was being written by Gary Whitta (“The Book of Eli”), and Leonardo DiCaprio would’ve been one of the producers. Of course things fell apart and the project would end up in two other directors hands (Albert Hughes and Jaume Collet-Serra) before WB finally pulled the plug on it in 2012. Below, you will find several pieces of concept art that conceptual illustrator James Clyne created for Robinson’s version of Akira

Pacific Rim kicks Harry Potter’s ass… in China

Pacific Rim just kicked Harry Potter‘s ass… in China. The Guillermo del Toro-directed summer blockbuster posted a record-breaking $9 million opening in China, from an estimated 5,700 digital 3D screens, 117 digital 3D IMAX screens, and 22 China Giant Screen sites. This makes it the biggest first-day ever in the republic for Warner Bros., even ahead of the $7 million taken in by “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2” in 2011.
