The Iron Giant Set for a Comeback


Warner Bros. Pictures has recently announced that the iconic animated film The Iron Giant will be returning to the big screens, but those of you who are skeptical of remakes and reboots can rest easy, because its return is just a remastered and enhanced version with two new scenes.

Dubbed as The Iron Giant: Signature Edition, the re-release is slated for a limited theatrical engagement through Fathom Events. The screenings have been scheduled for Wednesday, September 30 at 7:00 pm local time, and an encore event in select markets on Sunday, October 4 at 12:00 PM local time.

For the uninitiated, The Iron Giant is an animated classic that focuses on the unlikely friendship that developed between a boy named Hogarth and a giant, extraterrestrial robot. The film was originally released in the summer of 1999 by Warner Bros and featured the directorial debut of Brad Bird.

The ticket on-sale date and theater locations for The Iron Giant: Signature Edition will be announced this August online at www.FathomEvents.com. Following the re-release of the film in theaters, a high-definition version of “The Iron Giant: Signature Edition” will be available to purchase from digital retailers in the fall of 2015.
