Wondering why times are missing?


Legendary Japanese manga and anime artist Katsuhiro Ôtomo finally gets around to a feature-length theatrical follow-up to his animated masterpiece Akira. This time, he's traded futuristic Tokyo for Victorian London. This magnificently picturesque steampunk fantasy centers on a young inventor in mid-1800s England who inherits an incredibly powerful energy source, known as a "steam ball," from his famous grandfather. Though just a lad, our hero labors to protect the device from evil scientists in giant steam-powered warships. (Cool, no?) The impressive voice cast includes Patrick Stewart, Alfred Molina and Anna Paquin. 106 minutes
