Theatrical Event to Screen August 4 - 12 in More Than 1,000 Theaters Across U.S. and CanadaFLOWER MOUND, Texas, June 26, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — FUNimation Entertainment announced today that tickets for "Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'" are now available for purchase via www.dragonballz.com. The new feature film will screen in more than 1,000 theaters across the United States and Canada from August 4 – 12, 2015. The theatrical event, with an approximate 105-minute run time, will feature a special 15-minute pre-show featuring Dragon Ball Z trivia and cast interviews.
"Last year's phenomenal fan response to Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods resulted in sold out theaters across North America," said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and founder of FUNimation. "For Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' we've expanded our theatrical distribution to more than 1,000 theaters to meet fan demand, but it wouldn't surprise me if theaters sell-out again. This movie is visually stunning and offers even more action that Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods."
As a special bonus for the next two weeks, each fan, who purchases tickets to "Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'" and attends either Anime Expo or San Diego Comic-Con, will receive a complimentary collectible Goku or Frieza phone charm* imported from Japan by simply showing proof of ticket purchase at the FUNimation Entertainment booth at either convention.
"We're excited to be bringing Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' to so many theaters across North America this coming August," said Mike DuBoise, COO of FUNimation. "With more theaters, more action, and the brilliance of series creator Akira Toriyama on the big screen, this limited engagement will be an epic Dragon Ball Z experience that fans of all ages across the U.S. and Canada will not want to miss."
* One charm per ticket purchased. Maximum two charms per ticket purchaser. While supplies last.
