All the Anime (the twitter feed of Anime Limited) has tweeted that the action/SF cinema film 009 RE:CYBORG will be shown as Dublin's Lighthouse Cinema on Saturday April 13. The event has a page on the cinema site, although the screening time is not confirmed yet.
The film is produced by Production I.G. and directed by Kenji Kamiyama. Kamiyama also made Ghost in the Shell Stand Alone Complex, Eden of the East and Moribito Guardian of the Spirit. The showing will be in 2D. Details of the film are below the trailer.
The film is made in CGI animation, and is based on Shotaro Ishinomori's classic science-fiction manga, Cyborg 009. Kamiyama's YouTube channel is streaming the trailer (above). The story begins when skyscrapers in London, Moscow, Berlin, and New York are destroyed by simultaneous bombings, causing widespread panic throughout the world. A group of nine cyborg fighters is reunited, but their former leader is living alone in Tokyo with his memories wiped.
