Sentai Filmworks announced on Tuesday that it will screen Made in Abyss: Wandering Twilight (Made in Abyss: Hōrō Suru Tasogare), the second Made in Abyss compilation anime film, in theaters in the United States beginning on May 27. Bonus features with the screening will include behind-the-scenes content and interviews.
Anime Central will host the U.S. premiere of the film at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare and Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois on May 17. The premiere will include a red-carpet event, and director Masayuki Kojima, music producer Hiromitsu Iijina, and composer Kevin Penkin will attend a Q&A session.
Sentai Filmworks describes the film:
Made in Abyss: Wandering Twilight follows Riko and Reg on their adventure through the Abyss, picking up directly after the events of Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn. Riko has learned the truth of her origins, and in the process the mystery surrounding her mother's death has deepened. More determined than ever to travel to the bottom of the Abyss, Riko and Reg leave Ozen's Seeker Camp and delve into the treacherous Third Layer — and beyond, to depths brimming with supernatural creatures, unexpected allies and deadly enemies. Perilous, poignant and spectacular in turns, this continuation of Riko and Reg's journey is sure to leave fans of MADE IN ABYSS absolutely spellbound.
Sentai Filmworks premiered the first compilation film, Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn, in at Regal Cinema (L.A. LIVE) in Los Angeles on March 15 before it opened in theaters on March 20 and 25. The company hosted a red-carpet event at the premiere with Kojima, Iijima, Penkin, and producer Shinpei Yamashita as guests.
The first film, Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn (Made in Abyss: Tabidachi no Yoake), opened in Japan on January 4, followed by the second film on January 18.
