Earlier today, Fathom Events announced that they are partnering with Sentai Filmworks to give Made In Abyss: Journey’s Dawn a theatrical run in the United States. The film will hit theaters on across the country on March 20 (subtitled) and 25 (dubbed).
Screenings will include additional extra features, including audience Q&As, backstage footage, and interviews with cast and crew.
Prior to the premiere, Sentai Filmworks will host a premiere event at Los Angeles’ Regal Cinema (L.A. LIVE). The event will feature guest appearances by Masayuki Kojima, composer Kevin Penkin, music producer Hiromitsu Iijima, and producer Shimpei Yamashita.
Tickets will go on sale via the Fathom Events website on February 15. The film made its debut in Japanese theaters on January 4.
Made In Abyss is based on Akihito Tsukushi’s manga of the same name. Masayuki Kojima (Monster, Black Bullet) is directing the movies at Kinema Citrus, with Kazuchika Kise (Ghost in the Shell) providing character designs. Hideyoshi Kurata (Now and Then, Here and There, World God Only Knows) is in charge of series composition for the project.
Sentai Filmworks describes the film as:
The enigmatic Abyss is an unforgiving and deadly place. Despite the dangers, it still captures the imagination of explorers such as Riko who wishes to follow in her mother’s footsteps and trains hard to become a Cave Raider. One day, she receives news that her mother died in the Abyss, yet a mysterious note tells Riko that her mother may still be alive. Vowing to uncover the truth about her mother’s fate, Riko embarks on a journey with a humanoid robot boy name Reg. Together, they will discover if they have what it takes to survive where so many others have perished.
A second season of the show was announced on November 27, 2017.
