In one of the most anticipated films at Fantastic Fest this year, Iké Boys is one of those fun-loving superhero films in the way of live-action animes. The movie oozes the likes of those Saturday Japanese television shows that popularized the Power Rangers for us.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Best friends Shawn Gunderson and Vikram ‘Vik” Kapoor escape from the drudgery of high school life in Oklahoma through their obsession with all things Japanese. When a mysterious anime film transforms them into its superhuman characters, they at first think that their wildest fantasies have come true. But when ancient monsters threaten to unleash the apocalypse on New Year’s Eve of 1999, Shawn and Vik must look at each other to become the heroes they were always meant to be. Joining their adventure is Miki, a Japanese exchange student whose determination to go on a Native American quest puts her on a collision course with both Shawn and Vik and their foes…and whose destiny may determine the fate of the world.

The film stars Quinn Lord, Ronak Gandhi, Christina Higa, Billy Zane, Yumiko Shaku, and Ben Browder. Eric McEver directed the movie from the script written by McEver with Jeff Hammer.

Iké Boys is a love letter from director Eric McEver towards the Godzilla movies that he loved. The story is told through mixed media and live-action with over 500 visual effects, traditional Japanese suit acting, and hand-drawn animation. It is a bilingual and bicultural film.

The film makes its premiere tonight at Fantastic Fest to the audiences’ delight. No word yet for a wider release.

Although the full trailer hasn’t been released yet, an official clip was released just in time as a teaser before its premiere.
