No official confirmation of release yet

Update - This release has now been confirmed as a one-day cinema release on Thursday December 12, full details here.

The website Anime UK News reports that multiple U.K. cinema websites are listing "Konosuba" as a release in December.

At present, "KonoSuba" is listed on the Odeon website and the Showcase website; the Showcase cinema lists the release date as December 12 and says that the film will be subtitled. There is also a listing (no date) on the Vue cinema website in Dublin.

However, the film is not currently listed on the launchingfilms website, which usually lists cinema releases in the U.K.

The film Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! Kurenai Densetsu (KONOSUBA - God's blessing on this wonderful world! Crimson Legend) opened in Japan on July 12. Takaomi Kanasaki returned from the previous two anime seasons to direct the film at J.C. Staff (Studio DEEN animated the two TV anime series). Makoto Uezu returned to write the scripts, Koichi Kikuta returned to adapt Kurone Mishima's original character designs for animation, and Masato Kōda returned to compose the music.

The original KONOSUBA (Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! or KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!) light novels by Natsume Akatsuki center on Kazuma, a shut-in student who dies in a traffic accident, but meets the goddess Aqua after death. He is given the chance to reincarnate in a fantasy world and can keep one thing with him. When he decides to choose Aqua herself, they are both transported to their new lives. The pair go on quests to earn just enough to buy food, shelter, and clothing, and eventually hire the sorceress Megumin and swordswoman Darkness, who they quickly learn are just as useless as they are.-->

The original KONOSUBA (Kono Subarashii Sekai ni Shukufuku o! or KonoSuba – God’s blessing on this wonderful world!!) light novels by Natsume Akatsuki inspired two television anime seasons. The first season premiered in January 2016, and the second season premiered in January 2017.
