‘Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F” screening in Moosic, Dickson City, and Stroudsburg theaters Aug. 4-11
From a press release:
Hot on the heels of last year’s summer blockbuster, “Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods,” the internationally beloved animated franchise, “Dragon Ball Z,” is back in theaters with a highly-anticipated new release, “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F,’” presented by FUNimation Entertainment in partnership with Fathom Events.
“Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’” is the second feature personally supervised by series creator Akira Toriyama. The event will be presented on the big screen in select cinemas across North America, and Fathom Events will be showcasing the movie in more than 500 U.S. cinemas on Tuesday, Aug. 4; Wednesday, Aug. 5; Saturday, Aug. 8; and Tuesday, Aug. 11 at 7 p.m., including Regal Dickson City Stadium 14 & IMAX (3909 Commerce Blvd. Dickson City), Cinemark 20 (40 Glenmaura National Blvd., Moosic), and Cinemark Stroud Mall (160 Stroud Mall, Stroudsburg).
“Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’” showcases the return of Frieza – one of the anime world’s greatest villains – as well as God of Destruction Beerus and Whis from “Battle of Gods.” In this latest story, Frieza is resurrected and takes his revenge on the Z Fighters of Earth. Goku and Vegeta must reach new levels of power in order to protect Earth from their vengeful nemesis.
U.S. and Canadian fans are eagerly awaiting “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F,’” which is already a smash hit in Japan. According to Deadline Hollywood, “Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’” opened at No. 1 in Japan, the only territory where “Fast & Furious 7” did not top the box office charts on its opening weekend.
“We are pleased to partner with FUNimation once again, to bring the popular Dragon Ball Z franchise to our network of U.S. cinemas,” said Fathom Events CEO John Rubey. “’Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods’ was a rousing success, and we know that anime fans will respond just as enthusiastically to ‘Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F.’’”
FUNimation Entertainment is the leading anime company in North America, managing a full spectrum of rights for most of their brands, including broadcasting, licensing, production, Internet, and home video sales and distribution.
