The San Francisco-based Viz Cinema theater confirmed that it will show the anime film Redline from October 8 to October 14. The California screening run coincides with the film's opening in Japan on October 9. The film has had screenings in other countries at film festivals, and it is playing on Thursday in Austin, Texas.
Redline follows JP, a daredevil driver with his customized vehicle named "Trans Am." He enters an interplanetary tournament, held once every five years, where the deadliest racers compete and many people plan to play the game for their own ends. The film is produced by the studio Madhouse, directed by Takeshi Koike (The Animatrix's "World Record") and written by Katsuhito Ishii (Piroppo, Trava). Manga Entertainment is distributing Redline in North America.
