Funimation Entertainment streamed two new clips from its English dub of the Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods film on Thursday and Friday.
A red carpet premiere was held on Thursday, July 3.
Funimation describes the story:
Following the events from the Dragon Ball Z television series, after the defeat of Majin Buu, a new power awakens and threatens humanity. Beerus, an ancient and powerful God of Destruction, searches for Goku after hearing rumors of the Saiyan warrior who defeated Frieza. Realizing the threat Beerus poses to their home planet, the Z-fighters must find a way to stop him before it's too late. Only Goku, humanity's last hope, can ascend to the level of a legendary Super Saiyan God and stop Beerus from destroying Earth, and possibly the entire universe! Fans of the series will be delighted to know that Battle of Gods is an original work from Dragon Ball creator, himself, Akira Toriyama.
The September issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine announced last month that a new Dragon Ball Z movie will open during the Golden Week string of holidays next spring. Toriyama is personally credited with the original concept, screenplay and character designs of the new movie "that the entire universe eagerly awaits!!"
