Canadian Theatrical News: Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic

It’s been a sketchy year for Funimation theatrical releases in Canada. We got One Piece: Film Gold and Your Name., but we didn’t get the Attack on Titan compilation films or the Ghost in the Shell re-release. I was expecting Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic to join the latter category, but in a late addition, Funimation and Cineplex will be doing one-night screenings in tandem with the American release next week. The film will be shown in both English and Japanese.

Book of the Atlantic is the first animated theatrical film based on Yana Toboso’s Black Butler manga series. Continuing where he left off in 2014’s Black Butler: Book of Murder direct-to-video series, the Noriyuki Abe directed feature adapts volumes eleven through fourteen of the source material. Franchise animation partner A-1 Pictures returns to work on the film. Book of the Atlantic first opened in Japan on January 21, 2017.

All aboard to the next great adventure for Ciel and his demonic butler, Sebastian! After hearing rumors of a peculiar society bringing people back from the dead, the two board the luxury liner Campania on her maiden voyage to investigate. Incognito amongst the mysterious Aurora Society, they find familiar faces and a sight they can’t believe—a woman raised from the dead! But surprise quickly turns to dread when the shambling corpse attacks. With more questions than answers, Ciel and Sebastian are up against not just one flesh-hungry corpse, but hundreds. Worse yet, the flamboyant reaper Grell and his new partner, Ronald Knox, stand in their way. Time is running out to solve this mystery, and if the demonic duo doesn’t act fast, they’ll be treading some seriously rough waters. Who could be behind this daring necromancy—and are they ready to find out?

  1. It seems like Your Name is still playing daily at major cinemas:

    I remember when I was planning to see it the Thursday after release because I thought it would be gone after 1 week.
