The details of the London screening of the first Tiger & Bunny feature film, Gekijō-ban Tiger & Bunny -The Beginning-, on Sunday September 23, are now on the BFI Southbank website.
The screening will be at 5.50 p.m., and tickets go on sale at 11.30 a.m. on August 21. From the webpage:
On an alternative Earth, superheroes are celebrities and a high-rating TV show ranks their achievements, awarding them points until an annual King of Heroes is crowned. Old-school hero Wild Tiger is assigned a new partner with very different views on the heroes' role in society, but soon a vigilante criminal presents them with a serious problem. Based on the succesful Japanese TV anime, and presented on the same weekend as its Japanese release, we are thrilled to present the first film in the anticipated Tiger and Bunny series..
The first Tiger & Bunny film is directed by Yoshitomo Yonetani (Betterman, GaoGaiGar: King of Braves, Dororon Enma-kun Meeramera). According to the April 2012 issue of Animage magazine, it will have story elements similar in outline to those in the television series. However, producers Kazuhiko Tamura and Chika Matsui said that the film project as a whole will also have new characters, and the second Tiger & Bunny film - which they hope will be released in 2013 - will be an entirely new story.
