Now Playing is about to EXPLODE!

Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie are headed to Neo-Tokyo this June for a much-anticipated review of Akira. Japan’s answer to the X-Men pits telekinetic mutants against a fascist Colonel, and pill-popping bikers, in a post-apocalyptic city scarred by nuclear war. Will tyrant Tetsuo succeed in locating the mythical title character beneath an Olympic stadium? Or will phantom limb pain, and friction with former best friend Kaneda, undo his dreams of earning a gold medal in evil? Absorb everything about cinema’s most celebrated anime by becoming a Now Playing Patron.
