Sunrise Inc. and Fathom Events are bringing hit mecha anime Mobile Suit Gundam NT to U.S. movie theaters in a special one-night engagement on Tuesday, February 19. The flick will screen at 7 p.m. local time at roughly 450 select cinemas nationwide in an English-language dub. Tickets and participating locations available at www.fathomevents.com as of January 18.
Produced by Sunrise Inc.’s 1st Studio, directed by Toshikazu Yoshizawa and written by Harutoshi Fukui (Mobile Suit Gundam UC), Mobile Suit Gundam NT is a new entry in the Universal Century saga, depicting what list beyond “Gundam UC.” In addition to catching the highly anticipated feature film, attendees will get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look, plus the first 50 arrival swill get a double-sided poster.
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.”
