Medialink announced on Wednesday that it will open HAIKYU!! The Dumpster Battle, the first film in the two-part Haikyu!! Final sequel film project, in Indian theaters in May.

Medialink will also release the film in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. The film opened in Hong Kong and Macau on Thursday, and opened in Taiwan on Friday.

The film premiered in Japan on February 16 and is also screening in IMAX. Susumu Mitsunaka (first, third Haikyu!! television anime) both directed and wrote the script for the film.

The film has sold a cumulative total of 6,483,000 tickets for 9,267,707,450 yen (about US$60.63 million).

The film sold 1,529,000 tickets and earned 2,230,465,540 yen (about US$14.83 million) in its first three days of screening. The film now has the biggest opening weekend for a film so far this year in Japan, beating Mobile Suit Gundam Seed FREEDOM anime film's 1,065,983,130 yen opening weekend earnings.

Haruichi Furudate launched the original Haikyu!! manga in 2011, and ended the series in July 2020. Shueisha published the manga's 45th and final volume in November 2020. Viz Media is publishing the manga digitally and in print, and published the manga simultaneously with its Japanese release digitally. MANGA Plus also published the manga digitally in English.
