Fathom Events will bring Sunrise’s Mobile Suit Gundam NT (Narrative) to the United States with a new English-language dub for one night only on Tuesday, February 19 at 7:00 p.m. local time at participating theaters.
Fathom Events debuted the trailer earlier this month. Take a look:
Here’s the official synopsis for the film:
“The story begins in U.C. 0097, one year after the opening of “Laplace’s Box.” Despite the revelation of the Universal Century Charter that acknowledges the existence and rights of Newtypes, the framework of the world has not been greatly altered.
The conflict later dubbed the “Laplace Incident” is thought to have ended with the downfall of the Neo Zeon remnants known as the Sleeves. In its final battle, two full psycho-frame mobile suits displayed power beyond human understanding. The white unicorn and the black lion were sealed away to remove this danger from people’s consciousness, and they should now be completely forgotten.
However, the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam 03, which disappeared two years earlier, is now about to show itself in the Earth Sphere once more. A golden phoenix… named “Phenex.””
Mobile Suit Gundam NT is directed by Toshikazu Yoshizawa and written by Harutoshi Fukui. The film tells a new story in the Universal Century saga and shows what lies beyond Gundam UC.This one-night only feature will give fans an exlusive behind-the-scenes look at the film. The first 50 attendees at each theater will also receive a Gundam NT double-sided poster.
The film will be available at around 450 theaters. Participating theaters can be found on the Fathom Events website.
