In January of this year NEW PEOPLE Entertainment scored a real treat for Japanese film fans. They managed to secure the World Premiere of Shinsuke Sato's big budget manga adaptation "GANTZ" for a number of coordinated screenings across the U.S. The only problem was that some fans were a little unhappy. It turns out that a number of the screenings were only English-dubbed, and not the more popular Japanese with English subtitles. Now it looks as if NEW PEOPLE Entertainment are making up for that minor snafu by running back to back screenings of both "GANTZ" and its sequel "GANTZ II: Perfect Answer" in San Diego.
On July 22nd at the Pacific Gaslamp 15 Theatres fans will get to catch "GANTZ" at 6:00PM and then at 9:00PM , while the next night, July 23rd, they can pick up where they left off with two screenings of GANTZ II: PERFECT ANSWER at 6:00PM and 9:00PM, also at the Pacific Gaslamp. Fans will be happy to know that both of these screenings will be in Japanese with English-subtitles, and what's even better is they'll be taking place to coincide with this year's San Diego Comic Con. Expect to see more than a few coplayers dressed as characters in the films that weekend!
Thanks to Sci-Fi Japan for this news.
