Dragon Ball Super: Broly Makes its Way to the West


January 16 has come and gone, and it’s a very special day that marks the arrival of Dragon Ball Super: Broly to the U.S. and Canada. As the 20th film in the iconic anime franchise, Dragon Ball Super: Broly is notable for finally making the titular villain canon. Fans will remember that Broly was featured in 3 prior movies that were not considered part of the franchise’ main continuity. The new film introduces a more in-depth take on the character, and fleshes out the history to keep it on par with the series renewed focus on storytelling.

There are over 180 digital premium large format screens at IMAX and Cinemark XD that participated on opening day:

“We’re truly excited to finally share Dragon Ball Super: Broly with audiences across North America. Tomorrow represents the culmination of an incredible theatrical campaign that put fans front and center while simultaneously introducing Dragon Ball for the first-time-ever to millions of families in the U.S. and Canada,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and President of Funimation. “Dragon Ball Super: Broly truly showcases creator Akira Toriyama’s incredible imagination and masterful storytelling. The movie is sure to please long-time fans as well as win the hearts of those experiencing Dragon Ball for the very first time.”
