Canadian Theatrical News: No Yo-Kai, but maybe Girls und Panzer?
Here’s a small update on the movies you can (or cannot) see on the big screen in Canada:
Remember how I said an Eleven Arts representative told me Yo-Kai Watch: The Movie would come to Canadian theatres despite the deleted Cineplex listing? Well, that same representative got back to me last week and said that’s no longer the case. The movie isn’t planned to have screenings in Canada. Sorry to anyone anticipating it!
An Eleven Arts release that might be coming to Canada is Girls Und Panzer Der Film. Sentai Filmworks is partnering up with Eleven Arts to bring the movie to theatres in the US in November. Cineplex has put up a page for the film attached to a December 6th date, but ticket sales haven’t gone live yet. I’ll do a proper write-up with a theatre listing once (if?) those do go up for purchase.
One last update on Miss Hokusai. GKids has added subtitled screenings in Edmonton at Metro Cinema from November 18th-24th. The film also began its run at the TIFF Lightbox in Toronto on Friday. It’s set to go in both dubbed and subtitled formats until at least November 3rd. You can grab tickets here.
Oh, I guess I should mention this, but there’s been no indication that the Pokémon: The First Movie limited run will hit Canada. Given that’s a chain-specific release in the US, I don’t think that should surprise anyone.
