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. (This film is in Japanese with English subtitles.)

James McAvoy stars as a corrupt, sociopathic Edinburgh cop in this fast-paced black comedy from the creator of Trainspotting.
Desperate for a promotion and bored with his duties as a Detective Sergeant, Bruce Robertson (McAvoy) survives on a mixture of cocaine, alcohol and sexually abusive relationships. Bruce soon finds his life spiralling out of control, when his drug addiction and unchecked psychological issues combine to test his grip on reality and push him over the edge.
"... sordid, sleazy and absolutely brilliant. James McAvoy was amazing..." Loaded
"McAvoy is sensational - utterly convincing as the manipulative bully who's racist, sexist and practically every other kind of 'ist' you can think of, while managing to elicit sympathy during rare moments of humanity." Metro
