Movie 15 to have limited theatrical run in Australia and New Zealand
Similar to the event held last year, Hoyts Cinemas will be premiering the 15th Pokémon movie - Kyurem vs. The Sword of Justice at selected cinemas throughout Australia and New Zealand on the weekend of Feb. 16 and 17, 2013. While last year's screening of White - Victini and Zekrom came off the heels of similar limited showings of the movie in the United States, this year it seems that Australia and New Zealand are the only territories airing the dub of this movie in theaters.
In Australia, it will be shown at Blacktown, Broadway, Carousel, Chadstone, Eastland, Erina, Frankston, Garden City, Greensborough, Highpoint, Penrith, Stafford, Tea Tree Plaza, Warringah Mall, Watergardens, and Woden. Tickets can be booked here.
In addition, Banter Toys, the distributors for the Trading Card Game in Australia and New Zealand will be holding Trading Card demonstrations at selected screenings prior to the movie starting. These demonstrations will occur at the Blacktown, Woden, Eastland, Stafford, Tea Tree Plaza, Garden City, Wairau Park and Sylvia Park screenings.
The Pikachu Short that accompanied the movie in Japan, Meloetta's Dazzling Recital, is not included as part of the screening.
The movie is being released on DVD and Blu-ray on March 6th in Australia, and March 20th in New Zealand.
