Mobile Suit Gundam NT Arrives in the US on February 19
Sunrise Inc. and Fathom Events are planning to bring some juicy mecha action to the US next month. According to a recent announcement, Mobile Suit Gundam NT will be coming to US movie theaters on Tuesday, February 19 via a one-night event starting at 7PM. 450 cinemas will be participating in screening the English dub. You can check out fathomevents.com for the list of participating locations.
For the uninitiated, Mobile Suit Gundam NT is the latest entry in the Universal Century saga. Directed by Toshikazu Yoshizawa and written by Harutoshi Fukui, NT will show fans what lies beyond the Gundam UC. Attendees of the screening will not go empty-handed, as they are providing an exclusive behind-the-scenes look. The first 50 attendees are also lucky, as they will receive a double-sided poster.
The official synopsis:
The story begins in U.C. 0097, one year after the opening of “Laplace’s Box.” Despite the revelation of the Universal Century Charter that acknowledges the existence and rights of Newtypes, the framework of the world has not been greatly altered.
The conflict later dubbed the “Laplace Incident” is thought to have ended with the downfall of the Neo Zeon remnants known as the Sleeves. In its final battle, two full psycho-frame mobile suits displayed power beyond human understanding. The white unicorn and the black lion were sealed away to remove this danger from people’s consciousness, and they should now be completely forgotten.
However, the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03, which disappeared two years earlier, is now about to show itself in the Earth Sphere once more. A golden phoenix… named “Phenex.”
