Can an animated reboot make sense of Kurt Wimmer's Ultraviolet, two years later? Wimmer's visually stunning vampire-plague movie, set in a future dystopia where everything is always color-coordinated, became a confusing mess at least partly due to studio interference. And now acclaimed anime director Osamu Dezaki (Aim For The Ace!, Lupin III) is supervising an adaptation, called Ultraviolet: Code 044. It premieres on the Animax satellite channel in Japan on July 1. No word on when it hits the U.S., but here's a teaser trailer, which shows a much moodier, less candy-colored version of the saga.
