The dates shuffling around for the scheduled release of Akira 4K Remaster release in theatres in various countries.

Albeit, Regal cinemas will be screening it as a Funimation screening with only English subtitles available.

Due to the cancellation of Tokyo Anime Award Festival by its organisers, where the film was originally scheduled to be premiered on March 14, it got a delayed-release in Japan and much-delayed release in the USA.
