COWBOY BEBOP THE MOVIE
The year is 2071. When villains blow up a tanker truck on Highway One, a deadly virus is released, killing hundreds of innocent people. This is merely the beginning of a greater threat to human kind and, fearing a more devastating biochemical attack, a significant reward is offered for the successful capture and arrest of the evil culprits.
Bored with their current situation Spike and his rag-tag crew of bounty hunters aboard the Spaceship Bebop accept the challenge wholeheartedly – determined to track down the bad guys one way or another and cash in their reward. Ahead of them is an adventure like nothing they have ever imagined.
A cult spin-off from the successful Manga TV series, brought to life by the famed Japanese Sunrise Animation Studios, Cowboy Bebop The Movie is an electrifying full-tilt trip into a vast, colourful and dangerous galaxy.
Three homeless people make do the best they can on the streets of Tokyo - middle-aged alcoholic Gin (Toru Emori), teenage runaway Miyuki (Aya Okamoto) and former drag queen Hana (Yoshiaki Umegaki). On Christmas eve they discover an abandoned newborn baby in a trash bin, dramatically changing their odd family dynamic and giving them purpose to search the streets of Tokyo for help in returning the baby to its parents.
A touching anime tale of mystery and resilience Tokyo Godfathers is as inspiring as it is intriguing, a dynamic and imaginative feature from the acclaimed director of Perfect Blue and Paprika.
