FUNimation Entertainment (via IGN) has released the first domestic trailer for the latest DBZ film, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F.‘ The film will screen August 4-12 in theaters across the U.S. and Canada, with tickets now on sale at DragonBallZ.Com.
“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.”
“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.”
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.
Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ is the 20th film in the “Dragon Ball” franchise, which first debuted in North America in 1986. The new movie showcases the return of Frieza – one of the greatest villains in all of anime. Now resurrected from death, Frieza embarks on plans to take his revenge on the Z Fighters of Earth. Goku and Vegeta once again face their nemesis together, but this time it is a fight for Earth’s very survival.
The film is set to feature the return of cast members Seán Schemmel as Goku, Christopher R. Sabat as Vegeta/Piccolo, Chris Ayres as Frieza, John Burgmeier as Tien, Kyle Hebert as Gohan, Mike McFarland as Master Roshi, Monica Rial as Bulma, Sonny Strait as Krillin, Ian Sinclair as Whis, Todd Haberkorn as Jaco, and Jason Douglas as the villain from last year’s “Battle of Gods,” Beerus.
