Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker's Memory - Release Date Trailer:
The first Mazinger Z movie in decades has an official title that lives up to the titular mighty robot: Mazinger Z: Infinity. The highly-anticipated film will be premiering to the world just in time for the globally-beloved franchise’s 45th anniversary.
Fans and moviegoers in Rome will be the very first to experience the fighting robot’s return to cinema as the film will have its world premiere at the Rome Film Fest on October 28, 2017 in collaboration with the parallel and independent sidebar Alice nella città. The premiere will be introduced by Mazinger Z’s original creator, Go Nagai.
Created in 1972, the manga and anime series was the first to feature a human-controlled fighting robot. Throughout several series, Mazinger Z, piloted by Koji Kabuto, was a weapon to protect mankind from the forces of evil, led by arch-enemy Dr. Hell.
The movie will take place ten years after the last episode of the anime series. Koji Kabuto has become a scientist, like his father and grandfather before him. After he encounters a dark new threat buried beneath Mt. Fuji and with the re-appearance of Dr. Hell, Mazinger Z is needed once again to save humanity.
The 12th annual Rome Film Festival offers a line-up mixed with crowd-pleasing international features and Hollywood awards-season hopefuls. After its premiere, the mighty robot’s film will launch theatrically in Italy on October 31 and then on November 22 in France!
