Appleseed Sequel to be Shown in Austin, Texas Tonight
posted on by Egan Loo
The Downtown Austin location of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema theater chain will be screening Shinji Aramaki's Appleseed: Ex Machina sequel film on Wednesday evening at 9:45 p.m. The 2007 computer-graphics film adapts Masamune Shirow's manga about a paramilitary police unit in a less-than-utopian future city-state. Most of the staff and cast from the first Appleseed film returned for this project, and Hong Kong cinema's John Woo came aboard as a producer. The screening will be free for Fantastic Fest badge holders (with RSVP at the festival's Facebook page) or US$5.00 for general admission.
