Funimation announced on Friday that it will screen Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods in over 350 theaters across North America on August 5, August 6, August 7, and August 9.
Funimation describes the story:
Following the events from the Dragon Ball Z television series, after the defeat of Majin Buu, a new power awakens and threatens humanity. Beerus, an ancient and powerful God of Destruction, searches for Goku after hearing rumors of the Saiyan warrior who defeated Frieza. Realizing the threat Beerus poses to their home planet, the Z-fighters must find a way to stop him before it's too late. Only Goku, humanity's last hope, can ascend to the level of a legendary Super Saiyan God and stop Beerus from destroying Earth, and possibly the entire universe! Fans of the series will be delighted to know that Battle of Gods is an original work from Dragon Ball creator, himself, Akira Toriyama.
The company is currently working on the English dub for the film.
Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods opened in Japan last year and earned 2.9 billion yen (about US$30 million) at the box office.
Madman Entertainment licensed the film last year and screened the film in theaters in Australia.
