Film based on Yasuhiro Nightow (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=238)'s manga to run subbed & dubbed in theaters this summer

Movie distributor Eleven Arts confirmed (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/press-release/2011-05-03/trigun/badlands-rumble-blasts-into-north-american-box-offices-in-summer-2011) on Tuesday that it is partnering with FUNimation Entertainment (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=6515) to release the anime film Trigun: Badlands Rumble (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=9499) in summer 2011.
Funimation has confirmed with ANN that some theaters will show an English-dubbed version of the film, while others will show the film with the original Japanese track. The company also told ANN that the official Funimation Trigun website (http://funimation.com/trigun/) will be updated with the screening schedule "soon." Funimation originally indicated its plans to release the film theatrically when it announced (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2010-07-02/funi-adds-live-action-moyashimon) the license at Anime Expo 2010.

Yasuhiro Nightow (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=238)'s manga Trigun was originally launched in 1995 in Tokuma Shoten (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=61)'s Shonen Captain (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=925) manga anthology. In 1997 the magazine folded and Nightow switched publishers, releasing Trigun Maximum (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/manga.php?id=31) in Shonen Gahosha's Young King Ours (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/manga.php?id=3795) until the series ended in 2008. In 1998, Madhouse Studios (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=392) animated a television anime based on the series, which Geneon USA (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=1782) licensed (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/1999-07-18/ax-99-wrap-up) in 1999. After Geneon USA closed (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2007-09-26/geneon-usa-to-cancel-dvd-sales-distribution-by-friday), Funimation acquired (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2010-02-14/funimation-gets-trigun-tv-anime-series) the rights to the original series. Dark Horse Comics (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/company.php?id=26) acquired (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2003-06-02/new-manga-from-dark-horse) the North American rights to both manga series in 2003, and published the series' final volume in 2009.

Plans for an animated Trigun feature film date back as far as 2005, when MADHOUSE's Masao Maruyama (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=936) told (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2005-10-20/trigun-movie) a U.K. anime magazine that his studio was working on the film. However, the movie did not come to fruition until its spring 2010 (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2009-10-09/trigun-the-movie-dated-for-spring-2010) release in Japan.

Is this a reboot film or is this just slipped in somewhere like the Cowboy Bebop movie?

I haven't seen it myself, but ANN lists as a side story of the TV series.

I wonder how large of a release this will receive. I would love to see it theatrically. Trigun is still one of my favorite anime series (it's right up there alongside Cowboy Bebop for me).

One of the rare cases where the TV show actually ended better than the manga (Nightow can certainly draw, but he can't seem to tell a sequential story well), so I'm glad it's not just a r it's not just a re-adaptation of the manga.
