Resurrrection F 3D to be screened in 3D + Home Release

Fans of Dragon Ball Z who missed the brief UK and Irish theatrical run of Resurrection F can now avail of a second opportunity to see the film, as extra dates have been added, albeit this time a 3D release.

Manga UK added on their official website:

Following its phenomenal success in UK cinemas last Autumn, Manga Entertainment are thrilled to announce the re-release of Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ in 3D for a limited time in 56 sites across the UK.

The film will be screened at select theatres across the UK in London, Manchester, Liverpool, Edinburgh, and South and North Lanarkshire on January 20th.

No dates have been announced for Belfast or Dublin, but keep watching this space for your ticket information or MangaUK’s Facebook page where they will likely reveal new dates and venues once they are added, as was the case with last year’s theatrical run.

Furthermore, the film will receive a home release on Blu-Ray, DVD, and a combo collector’s edition on January 25th.

Dragon Ball Z : Resurrection F is the 20th film instalment in the franchise. Featuring the return of iconic villain Frieza, this movie has an original story written by Akira Toriyama with Tadayoshi Yamamuro taking directorial duties. Most of the Funimation voice cast starred in the movie including fan favourites such as Sean Schemmel and Christopher Sabat. The movie received a world dubbed premier at Regal LA Live Stadium, before its general release on August 4th-12th.

Your last chance to see ‘Resurrection F’ at Irish Theatres

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.

UK and Ireland ‘Resurrection F’ Update : Theatrical Run and Home Media Releases

Ever since Manga UK’s MCM London Comic Con announcement there has been speculation amongst Dragon Ball fans in the UK and Ireland about the release of Resurrection F.

Now, many of us know the anime and manga industry on these shores is not what it is in the US. Battle of Gods did get a direct-to-video release on DVD and Blu-Ray, but unlike many other territories we weren’t given a theatrical release of that film.

This time, not only will Resurrection F get a theatrical run in theatres across the UK, but according to Amazon Resurrection F and Battle of Gods will be released for home media as a combo pack along with the standard single Resurrection F DVD and high definition Blu-Ray releases.

This is great news for Dragon Ball fans in the UK and Ireland as many will have a rare opportunity to see their favourite franchise on the big screen and support its distribution here.

Dragon Ball Z : Resurrection F is the 20th film instalment in the franchise. It will have an original story written by Akira Toriyama, and directed by Tadayoshi Yamamuro. Most of the Funimation voice cast will be returning including fan favourites such as Sean Schemmel and Christopher Sabat. The film will receive a world dubbed premier at Regal LA Live Stadium, before its general release on August 4th-12th.

New Dragon Ball Products For The UK and Ireland!

Over the next few months there are a few new Dragon Ball products that European and particularly Irish and UK fans can look forward to.

Just over a month from now, fans of Dragon Ball Z Kai in the UK and Ireland can expect a DVD and Blu-ray release for the series. The first season, which spans the Saiyan Saga will be released on 03 August 2015. The second season, which spans the Namek and Frieza Saga will follow on 08 September 2015. Expect details on the other two seasons soon.
The Kai dub released will be the same version KIX TV have been broadcasting for the past few years. The difference is that the DVD and Blu-ray will have all the blood, swearing and decapitation intact – in addition to the option to change between English and Japanese audio, and in its original 4:3 aspect ratio.

On 16 October 2015 the next instalment of the Dragon Ball games – Dragon Ball Z : Extreme Butoden will be released in Europe. Regarding the game and its mobility, Eric Hartness, the Vice President of Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. added:

Dragon Ball Z : Extreme Butoden lets players take Dragon Ball on the road while delivering a tight and engrossing fighting game experience developed by one of the most respected 2D fighting game developers in Japan.

The recent movie Resurrection F is also expected to receive a UK and Irish release in some form. Manga UK previously announced they have secured the rights to the film, but it is unsure whether this will be a theatrical release(s) or home release.

UK Filmmakers K&K Productions also said the following on 20 April 2015 on their Facebook account:

LIVE ACTION DBZ UPDATE!
We know we are quiet at the moment guys, but we do have a BIG live action DragonBall Z project in the pipeline that we are working hard on.
We cant say to much right now, but we are really stepping things up a notch and we cant wait to start sharing more info with you all.
Thank you all for being patient and more updates to come!

While this comment did not reveal anything about the date(s) of the project, it is still worthwhile to keep updated through their Youtube channel.

That’s all the latest products for these shores soon to be released, but when there’s more they will also be revealed here.
