With the Irish and UK theatrical screenings of Resurrection F days away, it can only be good news that MangaUK have have announced the film will be playing in more screens than what was originally intended. And while this does mean we will have to wait a little longer for the DVDs and Blu-Rays to hit shelves it also means there are more chances to see the film on the big screen if you live around Dublin, Belfast and the sunny south-East.
In addition to the Movies@Dundrum, Movies@Swords and Odyssey Belfast dates previously announced Irish fans can now book tickets for Resurrection F at Odeon and Queen’s Film Theatre in Belfast, Light House Cinema, Dublin and SGC Dungarvan, Waterford, this coming Wednesday (September 30th).
MangaUK have thanked fans for the overwhelming support with the following message:
I’d like to thank the UK Dragon Ball Z fan community for their amazing support and enthusiasm for the theatrical release of Resurrection of F. Because of you, DBZRF is going out on more screens on its initial opening than any other anime film ever released in the UK previously. That’s an amazing accomplishment. However! Because of the unprecedented demand for cinema showings across the country we will have to push back the UK home video release.
One of our retail partners has today notified its customers of a date change. This is not the final date that has been decided. We are currently working very hard to find a new street date that satisfies not only the retailers and theatrical exhibitors requirements, but which also doesn’t cause you guys to have to wait any longer than necessary for it on DVD and Blu-ray. Marketing and selling anime is a tricky business as a lot of you know and we are lucky that our audience is especially patient and supportive. I don’t think many other companies can claim the same thing. I really hate disappointing you and I can only apologise for any confusion that’s been caused by today’s events. We will announce a new home video street date imminently and we will work our butts off, as always, to ensure it is as soon as possible.
Thank you so much for helping shape the UK theatrical release of DBZRF and enabling us to get it onto an unprecedented number of screens. This result means that if you are a passionate DBZ fan who wants to see the movie on a local screen, you probably can. That makes me happy. I apologize for any disappointment and inconvenience the home video date change announcement has caused you. Please stay tooned for further announcements from @MangaUK. Meanwhile! Enjoy #DBZRF in cinemas, nationwide from 30th September.
