"Boruto: Naruto the Movie" will screen in more than 80 cities across the United States beginning Oct. 10, Naruto's birthday, Viz Media and Eleven Arts have announced.

Written by "Naruto" creator Masashi Kishimoto, who also served as character designer and chief production supervisor, the film centers on Naruto’s son Boruto, introduced last fall in the final chapter of the manga and in “The Last: Naruto the Movie,” who rejects his father even has he seeks to surpass his accomplishments. "Boruto" will be presented in Japanese with English subtitles.

Here's the official synopsis:

In BORUTO: NARUTO THE MOVIE, famed ninja, Naruto Uzumaki protects the Hidden Leaf Village as the Seventh Hokage, while Boruto, his troublesome son, resents his father's responsibilities that take his time away from him. Seeing this, Sasuke takes Boruto under his wing, while Sasuke's only daughter, Sarada, dreams of being Hokage one day.

With Naruto as the Seventh Hokage, the Hidden Leaf Village plans to host the Chunin Exams to train new shinobi from the village and from their allied villages. Among the entrants are Sasuke's daughter, Sarada, Mitsuki, an exceptionally talented yet mysterious shinobi… and Boruto, Naruto's talented but impetuous son. Meanwhile, Sasuke who’s been on a mission in another dimension appears before Naruto to warn of a strange impending danger. Shrouded with an evil aura, Momoshiki and Kinshiki appear and attempt to assassinate Naruto. Petrified, Boruto is shielded by Naruto, only to disappear in front of Boruto's own eyes!

As previously announced, "Boruto: Naruto the Movie" will be shown Oct. 10 during New York Comic Con, where Kishimoto will make his first-ever appearance outside of Japan. The film will premiere Aug. 7 in Japan.
