posted on by Andrew Osmond
Manga Entertainment has Tweeted that its upcoming cinema release of the film My Hero Academia: Two Heroes is expanding, with venues added in London, Manchester, Newcastle, Aberdeen and elsewhere. In addition, some venues are extending their runs of the film.
All screening details can be found at http://myheroacademiamovie.co.uk/, with the subtitled version screening from Tuesday December 4 and the English-dubbed version from Wednesday December 5.
Manga adds that the film has been rated '15' by the BBFC. The BBFC page says that the reasons are the film's strong violence and bloody images. The more detailed BBFC description, with mild spoilers, is as follows:
'There are infrequent shootings, resulting in strong bloody detail. Milder violence includes explosive battles between superpowered characters, with occasional sight of blood on their faces or, at one point, streaming from a character's mouth. Several characters are knocked out by blows to their heads... There is occasional mild bad language ('bastard', 'crap', 'ass'), as well as infrequent mild sex references and a passing reference to drugs."
Funimation has described the story:
The climactic finals are over, and U.A. is getting ready for the summer training camp. Deku and All Might receive an invitation from a certain person to go overseas to a giant artificial moving city called I-Island. This island, a kind of “science Hollywood” that gathers the knowledge of scientists from around the world, is holding an exhibition called I-Expo showcasing the results of Quirk and hero item research. In the midst of all this, Deku meets a Quirkless girl named Melissa and remembers his own Quirkless past. Out of the blue, the impregnable security system the island boasts is hacked by villains, and all the people on the island are taken as hostages! Now, a plan that could shake hero society has been put into motion! The man who holds the key to it all is the number one hero and Symbol of Peace, All Might.
