“Revival of ‘F'” to Receive 4DX Screenings in Japan
Published by 16 February 2015, 11:23 AM EST

The official website of the upcoming 2015 movie, Dragon Ball Z: Revival of “F”, has announced that the film will be screened in “4DX” in select venues across Japan.


4DX is a proprietary system from South Korean company CJ 4DPLEX (a subsidiary of the CJ Corporation conglomerate), which uses technologies embedded in moviegoers seats to provide an additional element of physical sensation on top of sight and sound. These include seat motion, air jets, spraying mist, scents, fog, and more.

Included with the announcement is a list of 10 (nine currently operational) venues which will be providing the 4DX movie experience. The vast majority are in the Kanto and Chubu regions, with one additional location each in Hiroshima and Fukuoka.

The story for Revival of “F”, opening nationwide in Japan 18 April 2015 in 2D and IMAX 3D, is being crafted by original manga author Akira Toriyama, who stated he is writing it, “…as though it were a continuation of the manga when it was in serialization,” and that while it will, “…of course be a continuation of the previous Battle of Gods,” he has also, “…deliberately increased the amount of action scenes by a good deal.” Tadayoshi Yamamuro, who worked for many years as character designer and animation supervisor on the Dragon Ball franchise, will serve as the film’s director and animation supervisor. Norihito Sumitomo will return from Battle of Gods and the Majin Boo arc of Dragon Ball Kai for musical composition duties. Momoiro Clover Z will contribute a song alongside Maximum the Hormone, whose “F” will be used as a “battle song” during the film. Revival of “F” is set to bring back Freeza and will also include two new characters (Sorbet and Tagoma), feature Beerus and Whis again from Battle of Gods, and much more.
