Fathom Events began streaming a new short trailer for the Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! (Gekijōban Pocket Monster: Kimi ni Kimeta!) film on Monday. The trailer previews the additional U.S. screenings, which will be held on November 11 at 12:55 p.m. local time and Tuesday, November 14 at 7:00 p.m. local time due to high ticket sales and sold-out screenings.
Fathom Events began screening the film in collaboration with The Pokémon Company International in the United States, United Kingdom, and other international markets outside of Asia on Sunday and Monday.
The Pokémon Company describes the film's story:
Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! is an origin story highlighting Ash and Pikachu's first meeting and their adventures as they search for the Legendary Pokémon Ho-Oh. The iconic pair encounter familiar faces along the way, new characters including Trainers Verity and Sorrel, and even a mysterious new Mythical Pokémon, Marshadow. Challenges and epic Pokémon battles abound in this unique new story about the beginning of one of the most beloved friendships in popular culture.
The film had its world premiere at the Japan Expo 2017 event in Paris on July 6. The movie then opened in Japan on July 15 and earned 516 million yen (about US$4.61 million) in its first two days to rank at #1 at the box office.
