posted on by Kim Morrissy
Trigger and XFlag's original anime film Promare is getting its first live music performance event in Nakano's Sun Plaza Hall on January 18. The "Promare: Live Inferno" event will consist of a "fiery" screening of the film, a live performance of the songs from Hiroyuki Sawano's soundtrack, and a talk show with director Hiroyuki Imaishi, screenwriter Kazuki Nakashima, composer Sawano, and voice actors Tetsu Inada (Varys Truss), Mayumi Shintani (Lucia Fex), and Katsuyuki Konishi (Meis).
Tickets can be ordered online through livePocket. The lottery to purchase advance tickets will run until December 2. Regular ticket sales will open on December 14. Tickets cost 6,900 yen (US$63). Premium tickets, which come with access to a front-row seat as well as a unique penlight and PVC band, will cost 12,500 yen (US$114).
The film opened in 200 theaters in Japan on May 24, and ranked at #8 in its opening weekend. The film has earned more than 1.4 billion yen (about US$13 million) at the Japanese box office. Fathom Events and GKIDS screened the film in the U.S. on in September.
GKIDS describes the film:
Thirty years has passed since the appearance of Burnish, a race of flame-wielding mutant beings, who destroyed half of the world with fire. When a new group of aggressive mutants calling themselves “Mad Burnish” appears, the epic battle between Galo Thymos, a new member of the anti-Burnish rescue team “Burning Rescue,” and Lio Fotia, the leader of “Mad Burnish” begins.
The film will get 4DX screenings in the United States on December 11 as part of the "Promare (Redux)" event. The film will screen in English, and show times will vary by theater. The film will also get an additional event screening with an English dub in the U.S. on December 10 at 7:00 p.m. local time.
