Australian anime distributor Madman Entertainment began streaming an English-subtitled trailer for Kenji Kamiyama's action science-fiction film 009 RE:CYBORG film on Thursday. Madman Entertainment will screen the film in theaters in Australia and New Zealand as part of its Reel Anime 2013 lineup in September and October.
The story begins in 2013 when skyscrapers in London, Moscow, Berlin, and New York are destroyed by simultaneous bombings. The indiscriminate terrorism by an unknown group with unknown motives sets off widespread panic throughout the world.
There was once a group of nine cyborg fighters who rescued humanity from threats, but they had disbanded to their home countries. Now the man who created them, Dr. Gilmore, has summoned and assembled them back together again. However, the 00 Number Cyborgs' former leader, a Japanese man named Joe Shimamura (Mamoru Miyano), is now living alone in Tokyo's Roppongi with his past memories erased.
Madman Entertainment announced in April that it had licensed the series, and a different international trailer began streaming before then.
The United Kingdom anime distributor Anime Limited film screened in London on April 4, and Kamiyama attended. Anime Limited also hosted screenings in Glasgow and Dublin last month. The film is scheduled for a home video release in the United Kingdom in the fourth quarter of 2013. The distributor is working with with the studio NYAV Post on an English dub.
