Masashi Ando and Masayuki Miyaji’s sweeping fantasy epic The Deer King is ready to whisk moviegoers away to a bygone world of magic, peril and destiny when GKIDS kicks off the nationwide limited theatrical release on July 15. The distributor has released the initial list of participating venues across the U.S., which you can check out below.

Synopsis: In the aftermath of a brutal war, former soldier Van toils in a mine controlled by the ruling empire. One day, his solitary existence is upended when a pack of wild dogs carrying a deadly and incurable disease attack, leaving only Van and a young girl named Yuna as survivors. Finally free, the pair seek out a simple existence in the countryside but are pursued by nefarious forces. Intent on protecting Yuna at all costs, Van must uncover the true cause of the plague ravaging the kingdom — and its possible cure.
