Top 5 Telekinetics Stronger Than Carrie
  |  

The newest adaptation of Stephen King’s Carrie, a film about a girl with telekinetic powers who gets bullied and begins to use her powers against a lot of people, just hit theaters last week. The movie had some really great marketing schemes including the viral coffee shop prank that was covered on the site a few weeks ago.

With Carrie‘s recent release, I thought it would be appropriate to compile a list of five telekinetic fictional characters that Carrie would not want to mess with and who make the power Carrie wields seem like child’s pay.

Check out the list below of the Top 5 Telekinetics Stronger Than Carrie.

Jaume Collet-Serra Back On Board As Director Of ‘Akira’
  |  @   |  

It appears that Akira has risen from the depths of development hell, and is back on its way to getting filmed now that previous director Jaume Collet-Serra (director of Orphan and Unknown) has signed on to return as director of the adaptation based on the hit anime movie. This comes a little over a year after Warner Bros. put the film on the shelf because of budgetary constraints. Collet-Serra reportedly requested a budget that far exceeded the WB $60 to $70 million asking price.

Variety reports that the studio was in talks with Catfish helmers Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman to shoot the film, but that they were still keen on Collet-Serra’s vision. Luckily for the studio, the director has found time in his schedule to shoot the film, and has found a new way to approach the adaptation that would meet WB’s budget demands.

With the live-action remake of the seminal 1988 Japanese animated futuristic action epic Akira that absolutely no one was asking for recently being shut down due to budgetary concerns (apparently Warner Bros. thinks a sprawling science-fiction adventure set in a dystopian future can be made for less than the cost of an Adam Sandler movie) there’s no time like the present to begin your appreciation of the original manga-inspired film.

Tumblr user Otomblr has given fans of the Katsuhiro Ohtomo-directed anime classic a special treat: over 400 pages of the film’s storyboards assembled into their original continuity. You can check out a gallery of the storyboards here below.

Warner Brothers Shuts Down Production On Live-Action ‘Akira’ Movie
  |  @   |  

Warner Brothers has been attempting to bring a live-action adaption of Akira to the big screen for a long while now, with many budgetary complications and cast and crew issues leading to delay after delay…much to the elation of fans who don’t want to see it happen.

Lately, however, things appeared to be moving forward, and doing so at a quick pace. Beginning this past October, the movie was officially greenlighted after some budget problems were ironed out and a star was found in Tron: Legacy‘s Garrett Hedlund. Then came word that The Twilight Saga star Kristen Stewart might be in line for the role of Kei.

Now things have yet again taken a turn for the worst (if you wanted to see this movie happen, of course). It’s being reported that Warner Brothers has shut down production, with one insider saying “everyone is being sent home.”

  |  @   |  

According to Twitch, Kristen Stewart, star of The Twilight Saga and the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman, has been offered the female lead in Warner Brothers’ upcoming live-action remake of hit Japanese manga and animated feature, Akira.

In most cases this would be chalked up as nothing more than a rumor, but, unfortunately for those who will weep at such news, Twitch has been the go-to source for breaking Akira news, including first reporting the news that Garrett Hedlund has been offered the lead role of Kaneda and that Gary Oldman and Helena Bonham Carter had also been offered roles.
