Via Comic Natalie: as if tempting fate, the eerily prophetic dystopian film “AKIRA” — which predicted the debacle surrounding the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the end of the world as we know it (just because it’s called “COVID-19” and not “Tetsuo” is a small matter), will be returning to Dolby Cinemas all over Japan in digitally remastered 4K starting 4th December 2020.

“AKIRA” is a science fiction set in 2019 Neo Tokyo, based on the original work of the same name by director and screenwriter Katsuhiro Otomo. The comic was serialized in Young Magazine from 1982 to 1990 and was made into the modern classic theatre-length animation in 1988.
