The official website for the upcoming 2015 film, Dragon Ball Z: Revival of F, recently announced a special encore screening of the 2013 movie, Battle of Gods, to mark the upcoming home release of the “Special Edition” aired on Fuji TV last year.
There will be a single screening at a single venue, Shinjuku Toei 1, on 21 February 2015 (this coming Saturday), which will be preceded by a “talk event” featuring Masako Nozawa (Son Goku, et al.), Ryūsei Nakao (Freeza), and model/TV personality Risa Yoshiki. Although technically a Battle of Gods-themed event, Nakao’s presence virtually ensures that the conversation will turn to the new movie in some capacity.
Tickets went on sale 12 February 2015 for ¥1,200 each. The fine print notes that the media will be covering the event, so attendees may end up being photographed or filmed. In a somewhat convoluted twist, the version of the film screened will be the original theatrical cut, rather than the “Special Edition” being promoted.
The “special edition” of Battle of Gods will be released to Blu-ray and DVD in Japan 12 March 2015. Its release in Japan comes later than for the English-speaking market, where it went on sale in North America and the U.K. last year through FUNimation.
While Kanzenshuu will not be on hand for the screening itself, rest assured that we will be bringing you translations of Japanese media coverage of the event, along with any new tidbits about the 2015 movie!
