The question begs. What is the absolute best edition of Akira out there then? The 2009 US Blu? Is the 2009 UK/EU Blu the same version?

If it was produced on 70mm film then that is the best version.

I would say this 4K BD for the high level of detail and the Laserdisc for the "film" analogy nature of this format.

That's not a true 70mm print though? But yeah, if I lived on a ranch and had the space for a 70mm projector in my living room and also won the Powerball lottery then yeah, I'd go for a 70mm set up. :lol:

The 1080p Blu Ray from the 3 disc set? Have there been any comparisons done with it yet?

Was it in fact shot on 70mm or was it just upsized for the roadshow?

I’m guessing the later but I honestly don’t know a lot about this movie.

IMDb says "shot on 35mm" and "blown-up to 70mm" for a theatrical run.

I did find 70mm AKIRA movie reel cuts for sale online.

And just now I find out that an IMAX release of AKIRA supposedly happened last April 3rd in Tokyo but... State of emergency in Tokyo was declared on April 7th and TOHO closed all of its 1,500 screens from April 8th.

How many people could have seen AKIRA IMAX in 5 days?

https://www.toho.co.jp/movie/lineup/akira_imax.html

Will it be rescheduled or just dropped with the 4K available?
