Dragon Ball Super: Broly is heading to U.S. theaters next week, and fans are excited to watch the film for the first time (unless of course, you already watched the pirated versions online). Today, Funimation has confirmed the film is getting a limited IMAX run for its U.S. screenings.
Funimation revealed that Dragon Ball Super: Broly will be released on IMAX on January 16. The film will only run for one day in IMAX before continuing its run on normal screens. The one-day debut marks the first time an anime film has screened in IMAX theaters in the U.S.
So far, Dragon Ball Super: Broly has earned more than $32 million at the global box office and that number will probably be close to double after it comes out in U.S. theaters. Even though some fans have seen the film via torrent or pirated streams on social media, I'm sure many fans are still willing to whip out the bucks to see it on the big screen, especially on IMAX. The film will see Broly and Gogeta's addition to the official Dragon Ball Super canon.
Dragon Ball Super: Broly is now showing in Japanese theaters and will hit U.S. theaters on January 16. Dragon Ball Super currently airs on Adult Swim during Toonami's Saturday evenings at 9:30 p.m. It's also available to stream on Funimation and Amazon Video.
