And today Cineworld announce bankruptcy.Will be seeing Super Hero later. After getting used to neither of the 2 local cinemas carrying anime movies (most theatrical anime I've seen has been London press screenings or personal treks out of town) it's great to see both are showing this and with a choice of dub and sub. I'd guess with the popularity of Dragon Ball, COVID slump and streaming wars cinemas are desperate for anything that might sell tickets?
Either way, UK promotion for this film has been dire. It's almost entirely been fan word of mouth promoting it.
Someone can't correct me if this has changed but back when I was a manager for Odeon movie studios weren't allowed to own cinema chains (which is why Paramount had to sell UCI back in the day).Sony/Crunchyroll arrrrre already buying it different areas for anime expansion, they might as well go all in on a Cinema chain
United Publications still have the US one, the discs are AB.Is the dragon ball z season 1 steelbook available anywhere?
Just saw dragon ball super hero, pretty much your regular dragon ball film though I don't know how I feel about the animation. Also am I the only one thinking that elements of ??? have been ripped off of shin godzilla?
Thanks the info, much appreciated. I can now add both of those to my import plans then instead, especially as I was holding off and expecting Higurashi to be popular enough to come across the pond.Looks like it's the US release to me. The region says it's A/B and the certificate says NR (Not Rated), which would be illegal if it was the UK release because of the bbfc.
As for Higurashi Gou, it's possible it could get a release, but I highly doubt it. The US release is also region B compatible.
