Special premiere event planned for U.S. theaters on September 17 and 19
It's official: Studio Trigger's Promare anime film is coming to theaters in English! GKIDS announced the acquisition of the North American distribution rights for the feature, with a premiere event scheduled for U.S. cinemas nationwide on September 17 and 19. GKIDS will then release the film theatrically starting September 20.
The first feature-length film from the acclaimed Studio TRIGGER, creators of the hit series KILL la KILL and Little Witch Academia, and director Hiroyuki Imaishi (GURREN LAGANN, KILL la KILL), Promare uses a bold cel-shaded visual style to tell a blistering action-adventure story, and is the spiritual successor to many of director Imaishi's former works.
Thirty years has passed since the appearance of Burnish, a race of flame-wielding mutant beings, who destroyed half of the world with fire. When a new group of aggressive mutants calling themselves "Mad Burnish" appears, the epic battle between Galo Thymos, a new member of the anti-Burnish rescue team "Burning Rescue," and Lio Fotia, the leader of "Mad Burnish" begins.
