Redline, Haruhi, Ping Pong Films in San Francisco

Redline returns this week; Haruhi on December 17; Ping Pong on December 22

The San Francisco-based Viz Cinema theater announced that the anime film Redline is returning for encore screenings at 5:00 p.m. and 7:15 p.m. every day until Thursday. The film had opened in this theater in the same weekend that it opened in Japan in October.

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 on and off the course 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.

Viz Cinema is also bringing back Tatsuya Ishihara's The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya anime film on December 17 and Fumihiko Sori's manga-based live-action Ping Pong film on December 22.
