Crunchyroll, in partnership with Sony Pictures Entertainment, will bring PSYCHO-PASS: Providence to theatres globally beginning July 2023.

The PSYCHO-PASS franchise revolves around The Sibyl System, an authoritarian system that rules over a futuristic Japan, quantifying the human personality. Sibyl’s analysis dictates every aspect of the citizens’ futures, and in exchange for Sibyl’s rule, the citizens enjoy a peaceful life. PSYCHO-PASS was an original anime project for television that began in 2012. Now, after 10 years, the newest film will connect the movie PSYCHO-PASS Sinners of the System Case 3: On the Other Side of Love and Hate and Season 3 of the PSYCHO-PASS TV series.

In the newest film, Chief Inspector of the Criminal Investigation Department, Akane Tsunemori, receives a report of an incident on a foreign vessel – the discovery of Professor Milicia Stronskaya’s body. Reunited with Shinya Kogami, a former fugitive from the Criminal Investigation Department, Akane grapples with a case that quickly escalates beyond their expectations. Professor Milicia’s research could reveal a truth that would shake Japan's government, and even the Sibyl System, to the core.
