Here is the first look at Iké Boys starring Quinn Lord, Ronak Gandhi, Christina Higa, Billy Zane, Yumiko Shaku, Ben Browder world premiering at Fantastic Fest.
Directed by Eric McEver in his feature debut, the film follows two self-proclaimed geeks and a live-in Japanese foreign exchange student who procure a long-lost anime classic that inadvertently turns them into superheroes.
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 to 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 vision 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.
