posted on by Karen Ressler
William Winckler Productions announced on Monday that it will screen Ultraman Ginga S The Movie and Ultraman X: The Movie with English dubs in United States theaters. Screenings will begin on January 8, 2017.
Theaters that will screen the film include the Chicago Music Box Theatre, Cleveland Cinemas, the Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas, Northwest Diversified Entertainment Theaters, and Keystone Cinemas.
Ultraman Ginga S The Movie (Gekijōban Ultraman Ginga S Kessen! Ultra 10 Yūshi!!) premiered in March 2015, and Ultraman X: The Movie (Gekijōban Ultraman X Kita zo! Warera no Ultraman) premiered in March 2016. William Winckler Productions is producing the English dubbed versions for both films and for Ultra Fight Victory.
The films tie in to 2014's Ultraman Ginga S and 2015's Ultraman X television shows, respectively. Crunchyroll streamed Ultraman X as it aired in Japan as its first simulcast for the Ultraman franchise.
William Winckler Productions has previously released several Toei Animation shows and the Fairy Princess Minky Momo television anime as films.
Update: English-dubbed trailers added.
Update 2: William Winckler Productions has confirmed with ANN that it hasn't licensed the films, but as it is the U.S.-based theatrical distributor for Tsuburaya Productions Company Ltd., it is "working for Tsuburaya Productions, not licensing from Tsuburaya Productions."
