Screenvision, 4K Media Bringing ‘Yu-Gi-Oh!’ Feature to North America

Screenvision Media teams up with 4K Media to bring ‘Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions’ to cinemas in the U.S. and Canada beginning January 20th, 2017.

NEW YORK -- Screenvision Media, a national cinema advertising leader, has formed an alliance with 4K Media to distribute the highly anticipated Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions movie to more than 500 theatres across the United States and Canada. The feature film will be released on January 20th and run as a limited-time theatrical engagement.

In Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions, the stakes have never been higher; the rivalries never as fierce; the risks never so great. One wrong move -- one card short -- and it’s game over for good. A decade in the making, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions features new designs and an all-new story from the original creator of the global phenomenon, Kazuki Takahashi. His masterful tale features anime’s most beloved characters in their long-awaited return: Yugi Muto, Seto Kaiba and their faithful friends Joey Wheeler, Tristan Taylor, Téa Gardner and Bakura.

“Fans of the iconic Yu-Gi-Oh! series have been anxiously awaiting the release of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions in the U.S. and Canada, and we are delighted to have the exclusive opportunity to share it with them through this special theatrical engagement,” said Darryl Schaffer, Executive Vice President, Operations and Exhibitor Relations, Screenvision Media. “Our robust exhibitor network and storytelling capabilities before, during and after the movies promise to maximize the impact of this exciting launch for both 4K Media and moviegoers alike.”

“This is an exciting opportunity for 4K Media to introduce this engaging and action-packed boys’ brand to the next generation of Yu-Gi-Oh! fans through a major theatrical event,” said Kristen Gray, Senior Vice President, Operations and Business and Legal Affairs, 4K Media. “Our fans will be thrilled to see Yugi and his friends reunited and set for more adventures in this latest chapter as envisioned by Kazuki Takahashi, the original creator.”

Specific ticketing information will be announced this winter.
