English-subtitled screening includes all-new bonus content

GKIDS and Fathom Events announced on Wednesday that Trigger and XFlag's original anime film Promare will get an additional "Promare (Redux)" event screening in the United States on December 8 at 12:55 p.m. local time. The screening will have English subtitles and feature all-new bonus content.

GKIDS also confirmed on Tuesday that it will extend its screenings of the film into next week at select locations in North America.

Fathom Events screened the film in the United States on September 17 and 19. GKIDS began screening the movie in the United States on September 20 in select theaters, and in Canada on September 22. The screenings have either English subtitles or an English dub.

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.

The film opened in 200 theaters in Japan on May 24, and ranked at #8 in its opening weekend. The film has earned more than 1.2 billion yen (about US$11.11 million) at the Japanese box office.

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.
