Subbed Gantz in San Francisco & NEW Gantz: Perfect Answer (2nd Live Action Movie)


The New People center's Viz Cinema theater in the Japantown district of San Francisco will screen the live-action Gantz film with English subtitles this month. The English-subtitled Gantz screening will run on Saturday, February 19 at 7:15 p.m.

The Gantz film adapts Hiroya Oku's popular manga of the same name. In it, actors Kazunari Ninomiya (Letters from Iwo Jima) and Ken'ichi Matsuyama (Death Note, Detroit Metal City) play two childhood friends who are accidently killed in a subway accident. They are resurrected to take on violent missions under the instructions of a mysterious black orb known as Gantz.

The movie had its worldwide premiere with the two stars last month when it debuted — with an English dub — in 334 theaters throughout the United States for one night only.

The second of the planned films, Gantz: Perfect Answer, will open in Japan on April 23. There are currently no official release date announced for a North American premiere of the second film.
