GKIDS recently announced plans for a special two-night U.S. premiere event for anime studio Trigger’s very first anime film, PROMARE. Dubbed screenings are scheduled for September 17, with subtitled screenings to follow on September 19, and tickets are officially on sale now.
While we wait for the film to start rolling, you can see some English-subtitled footage in GKIDS’ teaser trailer below.
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.
