Gantz World Premiere
Fathom Events will be sponsoring a world premiere screening of Gantz on Thursday, Jan. 20. This is a brand-new live-action adaptation of Hiroya Oku’s notorious seinen series (meaning it’s got lots of boobs, guns and monsters for the boys in the audience), which previously came to life in both manga and anime form. The film stars Kazunari Ninomiya (Letters From Iwo Jima) and Kenichi Matsuyama (Death Note) as a couple of recently deceased teens called upon to hunt down and kill evil, invading aliens. The stars will participate in a special live interview after the film. Gantz will screen locally at Rio 24 and Cottonwood 16 beginning at 6 p.m. Advance tickets are available at fathomevents.com.
