In celebration of its 20th Anniversary, Anchor Bay Entertainment’s Manga brand is set to release two of the most highly anticipated animated films. On January 17, 2012, Katsuhito Ishii’s “Redline” and award-winner “First Squad: The Moment of Truth” will be released on Blu-ray and DVD, and today, we have two new clips from “Redline” to show you.
“Redline” will also have a limited theatrical run in NYC starting on January 6th.
“Redline” is a racing film created by studio Madhouse (Paprika, The Girl Who Leapt Through Time, Summer Wars). The film is about the biggest and most deadly racing tournament in the universe. Only held once every five years, everyone wants to stake their claim to fame, including JP, a reckless dare-devil driver oblivious to speed limits with his ultra-customized car – all the while, organized crime and militaristic governments want to leverage the race to their own ends. Amongst the other elite rival drivers in the tournament, JP falls for the alluring Sonoshee – but will she prove his undoing, or can a high speed romance survive a mass destruction race?
