Mad Max is back and a bigger hit than ever? Check. Logan’s Run reboot back on the table? Check. Our collective vision of the post-apocalypse never goes away, not by a long shot (even if you exclude zombies), but it does ebb and flow with the times. What that says about how we all currently feel about the present, I couldn’t say, but if that live action Akira movie doesn’t get made this time, I’ll be very surprised.
