posted on by Joseph First
Warner Home Video announced on Wednesday that it will release Gantz: Perfect Answer, the second and final live-action Gantz film, on January 17 on DVD and Blu-ray Disc. The DVD will retail for US$24.92 and the DVD/Blu-ray Disc combo set will retail for US$29.99. The release will feature both Japanese and English language tracks, a director's interview, and cast profiles.
The Gantz films adapt Hiroya Oku's manga of the same name. In it, actors Kazunari Ninomiya (Letters from Iwo Jima) and Ken'ichi Matsuyama (Death Note, Detroit Metal City) play two childhood friends who are killed in a subway accident. They are resurrected to take on violent missions under the instructions of a mysterious black orb known as Gantz.
The first Gantz film had its worldwide premiere with the two stars this past January when it debuted — with an English dub — in 334 theaters throughout the United States for one night only. Gantz: Perfect Answer opened in Japan on April 23.
