What do you mean, you haven’t meticulously planned your summer around the amazing film events which are going on all over London? You’re not right, mate.

When Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira was released in 1988 it must have been something of a novelty; an ultra-violent, hyper-stylised, feature length cartoon for adults.

Graphically restored and sonically remastered, it’s as staggering today as it ever was.
