When a young man’s telekinesis is discovered by the military, he is taken in to be turned into a super-weapon and his brother nuts race to save him
before Manhattan is destroyed by his powers. Kaneda is a bar owner in Neo-Manhattan who is stunned when his brother, Tetsuo, is abducted by
government agents led by The Colonel. Desperate to get his brother back, Kaneda agrees to join with Ky Reed and her underground movement who
are intent on revealing to the world what truly happened to New York City thirty years ago when it was destroyed. Kaneda believes their theories to
be ludicrous but after finding his brother again, is shocked when he displays telekinetic powers. Ky believes Tetsuo is headed to release a young boy, Akira, who has taken control of Tetsuo’s mind. Kaneda clashes with the Colonel’s troops on his way to stop Tetsuo from releasing Akira but arrives too late. Akira soon emerges from his prison courtesy of Tetsuo as Kaneda races in to save his brother before Akira once again destroys Manhattan island, as he did thirty years ago. Live-action, English-language remake of the 1988 film “Akira” directed by Katsuhiro Otomo
