Ticket Giveaway: ‘MFKZ’ Arrives in U.S. Theaters October 11 & 16

English-language dub version of Guillaume “Run” Renard and Shoujirou Nishimi’s edgy animated sci-fi feature releases from GKIDS and Fathom Events in movie theaters nationwide.

In celebration of the upcoming U.S. theatrical debut of animated feature MFKZ on October 11 & 16, AWN has two pairs of tickets and some sweet merchandise to give away to two lucky winners!

A collaboration from French comic artist Guillaume “Run” Renard and Japanese animation house Studio 4°C, the creators of the acclaimed anime features Tekkonkinkreet, Genius Party and Mind Game, MFKZ is a stunningly animated sci-fi vision mélange of anime, film noir and Lucha Libre. The film, which reunites Tekkonkinkreet co-director Shojiro Nishimi and art director Shinji Kimura, made its world premiere at the 2017 Annecy International Film Festival.

MFKZ centers on young Angelino and his skull-and-flame pal Vinz, who live in a seedy tenement in an L.A.-inspired dystopian metropolis -- a burnt-out, gang-and-cockroach-ridden, neo-urban hell. Following a scooter accident Angelino starts experiencing migraines, strange hallucinations and fits of rage-inspired superpowers, as he slowly awakens to the truth of his origins: he is half human and half Macho, a supernatural alien race that is bent on taking over the planet.

The English-language voice cast includes Michael Chiklis (The Shield, American Horror Story), Giancarlo Espositio (Breaking Bad, The Usual Suspects), Jorge Gutierrez (The Book of Life, Son of Jaguar), Dascha Polanco (Orange is the New Black, Joy), RZA, Vince Staples, and Danny Trejo (Machete, Predators).

Released by GKIDS and Fathom Events, MFKZ debuts in U.S. cinemas on Thursday, October 11 at 7:00 p.m. (local time) with an encore on Tuesday, October 16 at 7:00 p.m. (local time). Both showings are dubbed in English. Tickets for MFKZ are available now at, and at participating box offices.
