U.S. Theatrical Premiere of Pokemon the Movie: White--Victini and Zekrom Announced

Cinedigm Digital Cinema Will Release Brand-New Pokemon Film to More Than 300 Digital Theaters in December for One-Weekend Special Engagement

WOODLAND HILLS, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 15, 2011) - Pokémon™ fans across America will be marking their calendars for a special limited engagement theatrical event this holiday season. The newest full-length Pokémon feature film, Pokémon the Movie: White--Victini and Zekrom, is coming to movie theater screens across the U.S. for one weekend only: December 3rd and 4th, 2011! As a special treat, fans can catch the debut of the movie's trailer this weekend, September 17th and 18th, on www.Pokemon.com immediately following an on-demand, online screening of the most recent feature-length movie, Pokémon--Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

The Pokémon Company International has partnered with innovative digital theatrical distribution company Cinedigm (NASDAQ: CIDM) to share Pokémon the Movie: White--Victini and Zekrom with its devoted fans for this limited, one-weekend-only screening event in more than 300 digital theaters across the United States. Pokémon fans will catch all the action and find out whether Ash can awaken the Legendary Pokémon Zekrom to help him stop the misguided Damon and save the Victory Pokémon Victini! A complete list of participating theaters will be announced shortly.

"We are thrilled to provide fans an opportunity to see this exciting new Pokémon feature film on the big screen," said Jill Newhouse Calcaterra, Chief Marketing Officer at Cinedigm. "Pokémon fans are a passionate group and will truly relish seeing this film together."

"It's going to be a lot of fun for the entire Pokémon community to get together and watch Pokémon the Movie: White--Victini and Zekrom," said J.C. Smith, director of Consumer Marketing for The Pokémon Company International. "We're excited to be working with Cinedigm to make this special engagement possible across the country."

As part of a Pokémon first, Pokémon the Movie: White--Victini and Zekrom is one of two feature-length films debuting in December. Launch details about the second movie, Pokémon the Movie: Black--Victini and Reshiram, will be coming soon.

Wow, what great news! The first Pokemon movie to be seen theatrically in the U.S. since...Pokemon Heroes (2003)! And the ones since have been among the best ever. And they're always huge hits in Japan.

Awesome! Three theaters in Manhattan and three in the Bronx, including the one closest to me. And then I can record it off Cartoon Network six days later!

(But do we have to wait eight months for the DVD release?)

Thanks.

Well, I went and caught the 10:35 AM showing this morning at the closest theater to me in the Bronx. There was no poster for the movie on the theater’s premises. There were about 30 people in the audience, parents and kids.

It was a great Pokemon movie, one of the best of them all, and certainly the best since Movie 7 (POKEMON: DESTINY DEOXYS, 2005). It had a strong storyline, with some interesting side characters and a beautiful setting high in the mountains. The visuals are spectacular and the three main new Pokemon, Victini, Zekrom and Reshiram, are quite formidable. Great music, too. The audience applauded at the end.

Here’s a shot from inside the theater:


And a sample of the visuals:


And a shot of the main characters:


And a special thanks to WTK for alerting me to this special event. This was the first Pokemon movie I saw in a theater since Movie 5 (POKEMON HEROES) in 2003.

To the applicable participants:
Hi

We hope you enjoyed
Pokémon The Movie: White – Victini and Zekrom last weekend.

We're so sorry to learn some theatres experienced a shipping delay and did not get Pokemon gift bags in time for the movie event last weekend. If you saw Pokemon the Movie at one of the theatres that did not have gift bags, please fill out the form here and we will have your Pokemon gift bag shipped directly to you.

Re: [Theatrical] Pokémon the Movie: White - Victini and Zekrom / Pokémon the Movie: B

I watched the companion movie, POKÉMON THE MOVIE BLACK: VICTINI AND RESHIRAM, on Cartoon Network on Sat. night. It's virtually the same as POKÉMON THE MOVIE WHITE. The only difference is that the two Pokemon, Zekrom (Black) and Reshiram (White), reverse roles. The footage of them in the alternate roles is new, but everything else is the same. And the screenplay is the same, so it's really not a new movie at all. I didn't quite understand this. Why they'd make two nearly identical movies? What's the point?
