The official Tiger & Bunny Twitter account announced on Tuesday that the Japanese band Novels will perform the song "Nemesis" as the opening theme for the film Tiger & Bunny The Movie -The Rising-.

Novels will release a new album with the songs "Missing Link" (the second opening theme for the original television anime series), "Earth Diver" (the opening theme for Tiger & Bunny the Movie: The Beginning), and "Nemesis" on February 12.

The film was originally scheduled to open this fall but has been delayed until February 8, 2014. Viz will screen the film theatrically in North America within the same month that the film opens in Japan. Viz is asking fans to fill out a survey to gauge where to bring the film.

The film will revolve around a mystery that happens on the day of the "Justice Day" festival that celebrates Sternbild's legendary goddess. Yūichi Nakamura joins the cast as Golden Ryan, Barnaby Brooks Jr.'s new partner in the film. Character designer Masakazu Katsura (Zetman, Video Girl Ai, DNA²) will also be making his voice-acting debut in a cameo for the new movie.

The film will again star Hiroaki Hirata as Kotetsu T. Kaburagi, Masakazu Morita as Barnaby Brooks Jr., Koji Yusa as Lunatic, Rina Hidaka as Kaede Kaburagi, and other returning cast members. The television series scriptwriter Masafumi Nishida is again writing the screenplay and serving as story director, while Yoshitomo Yonetani is directing the film.

Unison Square Garden will perform the single "Harmonized Finale" as the ending theme for the movie.
