With Funimation Films handling the North American distribution of the Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic film, the distributor had a really great time this past week doing a premiere for it with a smaller audience that I’m still saddened that I wasn’t able to attend, what with being on the wrong coast and all. Thankfully, they’ve put together a really great two-minute piece on the premiere with everyone showing up for it, some of the costuming and events, the awesome photography with the cosplayers, and some reaction for it. The film has two release dates planned for it in theaters with June 12th (Subtitled) & June 14th (Dubbed). You can find a theatrical list and order tickets for it through here.
Check out our review of the film.
