Dante’s Inferno Movie UK Exclusive

Posted by TurtleGirl On January - 12 - 2010

Anime, gaming and animation fans can venture into the nine circles of hell not once, but twice this February as Film Roman in Association with Manga/Anchor Bay unleashes DANTE’S INFERNO on Blu-ray and DVD, The Animated Movie, a ferocious companion piece to Electronic Arts’ forthcoming Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PSP title.

 
Tickets are on sale now for the 2nd February exclusive and there is a goody bag for all those attending! Book by calling 020 7451 9944 or www.apollocinemas.com. Doors open 7pm and the screening starts at 7.30. Tickets are £13.00 and £9.00 concs. There will also be an opportunity to have a go on the game.

 
Both the game and animated movie are based on part one of Dante Alighieri’s classic poem, The Divine Comedy, better known as “Dante’s Inferno.” Each takes players and viewers on a stunning journey through the nine circles of Hell. Dante’s Inferno The Animated Movie also follows Dante as he travels through limbo, lust, gluttony, greed, anger, heresy, violence, fraud and treachery in search of his true love, Beatrice.

 
Dante’s Inferno The Animated Movie is a visually stunning project from the creative teams behind some of the boldest animated films of all time – including Ghost in the Shell, Blood the Last Vampire, Tales of the Black Freighter, Ergo Proxy and Samurai Champloo – it provides a breathtaking new version of Dante Alighieri’s medieval classic, and the perfect way to delve deeper into the subjects covered in the interactive action adventure.

 
To give added distinction among each of the nine circles, EA and Film Roman are taking the innovative step of commissioning unique visions from multiple studios with experience creating some of the top anime in the industry to tell this classic story. Film Roman’s Joe Goyette (”Dead Spaceâ„¢: Downfall”) is the producer on the project, Victor Cook (”The Spectacular Spider-Man,” “Hellboy Animated: Blood & Iron”) is directing and Brandon Auman (”Iron Man: Armored Adventures”) is writing. Each episode hails from the best animation studios within the USA, Japan and Korea.

 
As well as providing more insight into the characters and story adaptation featured within the Dante’s Inferno game, the movie explores aspects of the poem that Visceral’s thrilling action adventure does not.
