ANN reports that Madhouse’s Redline is going to debut in America on the same day it does in Japan. Granted, it’s only going to run from October 8 to 14 in one theater in San Francisco (The Viz Cinema). Still, it’s a huge gain for Viz in general. I was lucky enough to catch both Patlabor: WXIII and the Escaflowne movie in theaters, and it really is a different experience entirely. The atmosphere, the social elements, you just can’t recreate that in a living room.


Redline, especially looks promising. It’s Madhouse’s signature style lain on top of a story that screams “action.” The film follows JP, a death-defying racer that drives his customized car, the Trans-Am. He enters into the universe’s deadliest event:, an intergalactic racing tournament that pits him against the craziest, most dangerous racers on the planet, among several others.

A trailer was released about a week ago. Personally, I love the visual style –  it’s colorful and clean, but still intense and wild.

I personally recommend that people go out to see this if they get the chance – even if the movie isn’t too hot, the experience will likely be something they will remember.
