Reminder: Tickets are on sale for Eureka Seven feature film


While waiting for Inglorious Basterds to start, I was sitting there chatting with my friends when I was suddenly interrupted by a big splash of animation out of the corner of my eye. It was a reminder that Eureka Seven: Good Night, Sleep Tight is going to be playing in theatres at the end of September.

Scheduled for September 24th at 7:30pm local times, Bandai will be holding another one-night-only showing of one of its films. You'll have to check Fathom Events' website just to see if it'll be playing in your local theatre, but it's a good chance to see an anime film on the big screen.

So go ahead and buy a ticket, mark it on your calendar, and then watch Eureka Seven if you haven't already. These sorts of events are really cool and Bandai needs the support to keep it going, at least until they've screened both Gurren Lagann films in theatres. Any of you planning on going?

Centennial, Colo. – Aug. 25, 2009 – NCM Fathom and Bandai Entertainment team up again for Eureka Seven – Good Night, Sleep Tight, Young Lovers, a futuristic tale straight from Japan about mankind vs. the machine, in a special one-night event on Thursday, September 24th at 7:30 p.m. local time. This unique theater event (English dubbed) will feature an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the creation of Eureka Seven – Good Night, Sleep Tight, Young Lovers at studio BONES (“Sword of the Stranger” and “Fullmetal Alchemist”) as well as never-before-seen interviews with several English voice actors including Johnny Bosch (Renton) and Stephanie Sheh (Eureka), audio director Tony Oliver (Robotech, Gurren Lagann) and director Tomoki Kyoda who explains the bold new vision and the “regeneration” of the Eureka Seven storyline.

Tickets for this special event are available at www.FathomEvents.com and participating theater box offices. For a complete list of theater locations and prices, visit the website (theaters are subject to change).

For almost half a century, mankind has battled a mysterious organism from space called “EIZO.”  In 2054, Renton, a young soldier, boards a fighter aircraft battling “EIZO.” The young soldier heads for the battlefield with a dream: to rescue his childhood friend, Eureka, who was kidnapped eight years ago.  Fate, however, brings tribulations to test the young love between Renton and Eureka as the final battle with “EIZO” approaches.

Exclusive to this in-theater event is an interview with director Kyoda who explains the creative choices made while working through the production of Eureka Seven – Good Night, Sleep Tight, Young Lovers. Audiences will hear about the unique challenges the audio director faced while creating the English-language version and see how it was recorded at Bang Zoom Entertainment – one of the premiere U.S. recording studios for anime recently featured on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien.” Other voice actors interviewed for – and appearing in – this event include Crispin Freeman (Holland), Kate Higgins (Talho) and Kari Wahlgren (Anemone).  

”We are delighted to be working with Fathom again to create another amazing event where U.S. moviegoers will get a chance to see this film as it was meant to be seen—on the big screen,” said Robert Napton, director of marketing for Bandai Entertainment.

Eureka Seven – Good Night, Sleep Tight, Young Lovers appears on the big screen in high-definition with Cinema Surround Sound in more than 430 select AMC Entertainment Inc., Celebration! Cinema, Cinemark Holdings, Inc., Cobb Theatres, Georgia Theatre Company, Goodrich Quality Theatres, Hollywood Theaters, Kerasotes Showplace Theatres, Marcus Theatres, National Amusements and Regal Entertainment Group movie theatres, as well as El Raton Theatre (Raton, NM) and Palace Cinema 9 (South Burlington, VT) through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network – North America’s largest cinema broadcast network.
