quietearth [Celluloid 06.07.08] post apocalyptic movie anime news scifi



One of the best films of the series, and the only animation out of all of them, will finally be getting a theatrical release in Japan on July 5th, but instead of the version we got, they'll be getting a directors cut. While I have repeatedly said I am not a fan of anime, I love the Highlander franchise, and this story is great all around, from the science fiction aspects to the heavy weaponry, and of course, the story IS post apocalyptic. "The lone warrior Colin travels with the wise-cracking ghost Amergan through the ages searching for the immortal despot Marcus Octavius, who killed his lover on the Celtic plains tens of centuries ago. On his quest, he discovers New York is submerged, and one dominant monolith fortress towers over the seas. Colin can save the survivors, but his sword only hungers for the blood of one man. Despite many lifetimes of training, Colin has failed to vanquish Marcus on the great battlefields of history. Can he finish what he started and stop Marcus?"
