The popular anime production company Studio TRIGGER has teamed with Toho for its first feature-length film Promare, which finally receives a theatrical release in the United States next month.
Directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi, the creator of the acclaimed anime series Kill la Kill, the animated film takes place 30 years after the cataclysmic appearance of the Burnish, a race of fire-wielding mutants. Burning half the Earth, a new faction called the Mad Burnish set out on a destructive, fiery path, with only a new hero named Galo Thymos standing in their way.
Employing a breathtaking, cel-shaded animation style that blends traditional animation with CG imagery, the anime film boasts vibrant, colorful environments and characters as well as Imaishi's trademark kinetic action, as Galo battles for the fate of the Earth.
Following its premiere at Anime Expo, CBR's review of the film praised its gorgeous visual style and engaging action sequences. The film's U.S. theatrical release will be handled by GKIDS through Fathom Events.
Directed by Hiroyuki Imaishi, Promare will be released in select U.S. theaters on September 20 and through Fathom Events at select locations on September 17 and 19.
