What’s the deal with this new 2020 release of Akira?
If you are a huge fan of science fiction Akira, you have to be excited about this re-release. The original film was launched all the way back in 1988, and so you can imagine that the film quality and sound is in no way up to the expectations and quality of 2020.
That’s why the film has been remastered and upgraded to 4K quality. The sound has also been enhanced and improved. If you are able to see this on a large IMAX screen along with their sound system, it’s going to blow you away!
New to Akira?
If you are new to this science fiction, we got you covered. Here are the basics and things you should know to get caught up to speed. The movie is based on a graphic novel titled the same name “AKIRA” by Katsuhiro Otomo. Mr. Otomo also directed the animation.
What’s it about?
Here’s the plot according to IMDB, “2019. 31 years after being destroyed during World War 3, Tokyo (now ‘Neo-Tokyo’) has been rebuilt and is a thriving metropolis. Shotaro Kaneda is the leader of a biker gang. His friend Tetsuo is injured in an accident and taken to a top-secret government facility. He develops telekinetic powers but decides to use them for evil rather than good. He has the same powers as Akira, the force that destroyed Tokyo in 1988, and now it appears that history will repeat itself.”
