Starting from today and running for a one week period (15th – 21st October 2015), anime publisher Madman Entertainment have begun screening the animated feature film Boruto: Naruto the Movie in cinemas across Australia.
Likely due to the mainstream popularity of the Naruto franchise, Boruto is screening in a greater number of cinemas compared to most of Madman’s Reel Anime screenings. For example, there are 12 venues in Queensland screening the film. For more information on screening locations, click HERE.
To mark this release, Madman Entertainment have collaborated with Deerstalker Pictures to create an original live-action short film of their own based on Naruto. This video can be found below:
About Boruto: Naruto the Movie
The son of a legend carves his own story!
With Naruto as the Seventh Hokage, Hidden Leaf Village is planning to host the Chunin Exams to train new shinobi from the village and from their allied villages. Among the entrants are Sasuke’s daughter, Sarada, Mitsuki, an exceptionally talented yet mysterious shinobi… And Boruto, Naruto’s talented but impetuous son.
Meanwhile, Sasuke who’s been on a mission in another dimension appears before Naruto to warn of a strange impending danger. Shrouded with an evil aura, Momoshiki and Kinshiki appear and attempt to assassinate Naruto. Petrified, Boruto is shielded by Naruto, only to disappear in front of Boruto’s own eyes.
