Fandango is listing Fathom Events screenings of Satoshi Kon's Perfect Blue anime film in U.S. theaters on September 6 and September 10. The website lists both English-dubbed and English-subtitled screenings.
The 1997 feature film was the directorial debut for Kon, who went to make Millennium Actress, Tokyo Godfathers, Paranoia Agent and Paprika before his death in 2010. Set in contemporary Tokyo, the story concerns a pop singer, Mima, who tries to develop an acting career, only to experience threats and traumas as her mind breaks down and she is tormented by a ghostly version of her singer self. Manga Entertainment released the film on VHS and DVD.
Kon based his Perfect Blue anime film on Yoshikazu Takeuchi's Perfect Blue: Complete Metamorphosis novel, which Seven Seas Entertainment shipped on February 6. Seven Seas also shipped Takeuchi's second Perfect Blue novel, Perfect Blue: Awaken from a Dream on April 24.
