This doesn't make me want to see an American Akira, it just makes me want to see more Chris Weston art.

Bloomin' heck they are a lot more developed than the storyboards I've seen before. They are exquisite.

I thoroughly concur - The Weston Droid's art on display here is brilliantly artful.

Sadly I still wouldn't watch a US Akira till it was on TV. But these storyboards deserve all the praise they are getting.

Stuff the Movie make these storyboards into a Graphic Novel and it will sell enough to rescue the economy. Ok it's infringing Otomo's copyright >sigh<

Those are great. Almost makes me wish they'd got the film done. But not quite.

Amazing stuff. Mr Weston is on fire at the moment (not literally, I hope.)  :lol:

I do feel for Weston -- as much as I complained about the chance of a live-action Akira remake, and still have my doubts it would be any good, he seems genuinely gutted the project didn't work out. You can see from the work he's put into these boards that he was passionate about the film.
