The Barbican in London will screen Legend of the Millennium Dragon, originally called Onigamiden, on November 27 at 4 p.m. Tickets are £9.50 online or £10.50 full price (concessions £8.50, Barbican members £7.50/£8.50). The screening is part of a Barbican season called Premiere Japan 2011. The other five films in the season - all live-action - are listed here.
Directed by Hirotsugu Kawasaki (Spriggan) and produced by Studio Pierrot, Legend of the Millennium Dragon revolves around a 15-year-old boy who travels back in time — over 1,200 years ago to the Heian period — and faces a war between oni (demons) and humans in the former Japanese capital of Kyoto. The anime adapts a 2004 two-volume novel from author Takafumi Takada. The subtitled trailer is below.
