Steamboy: From the Director of Akira

A sure amine classic opens this Friday from director Katsuhiro Ôtomo, who gave us Akira in 1988 and wrote the screenplay for Rintaro's Metropolis in 2001.

Far, far away from Tetsuo and Kaneda comes Steamboy's Rei, who lives in the UK in the mid-19th century. Shortly before the first ever World Expo, Rei receives an invention called the "Steam Ball." Hijinks and destruction ensues. Check out the trailer.
