Cineplex is also listing screenings for the film in Canada on September 22-24. The screening on September 22 will have an English dub, and the screenings on September 23-24 will have English subtitles.
GKIDS describes the film:
Thirty years has passed since the appearance of Burnish, a race of flame-wielding mutant beings, who destroyed half of the world with fire. When a new group of aggressive mutants calling themselves “Mad Burnish” appears, the epic battle between Galo Thymos, a new member of the anti-Burnish rescue team “Burning Rescue,” and Lio Fotia, the leader of “Mad Burnish” begins.
Director Hiroyuki Imaishi and scriptwriter Kazuki Nakashima teamed up again for the new project at Trigger. Trigger and Nakashima are credited with the original work. Shigeto Koyama was in charge of character design and mechanical design, and Sushio (Kill la Kill) was involved as an animator. Tomotaka Kubo (Mary and The Witch's Flower) was the art director, and Saishi Ichiko was in charge of logo design. Hiroyuki Sawano (Attack on Titan, Kill la Kill) composed the music. Sanzigen Animation Studio handled the 3DCG animation. XFlag is credited with production, and Toho is distributing the film.
