GKIDS Debuts 'PROMARE' US Trailer

As the first full-length feature from fan-favorite studio Trigger and director Hiroyuki Imaishi, the upcoming release of Promare is hotly anticipated. Ahead of its debut in US cinemas this September, GKIDS Films have released the first US trailer for the film.

Set 30 years after flame-wielding mutants called the Burnish destroyed half the world with fire, it sees the member of the fire rescue team Burning Rescue take on a new breed of mutants called Mad Burnish.

Despite making the jump from traditional animation to cel-shaded CG, Promare still bears many of the hallmarks of past Trigger and Imaishi works, with bold colorful animation and spectacular action. If you've seen Kill La Kill or Gurren Lagann then you'll be in familiar territory here.

Promare will premiere as a special Fathom Events screening on September 17 and 19, before opening in select US theaters on September 20.

The first feature-length film from the acclaimed studio TRIGGER, creators of the hit series KILL la KILL and Little Witch Academia, and director Hiroyuki Imaishi (GURREN LAGANN, KILL la KILL), Promare uses a bold cel-shaded visual style to tell a blistering action-adventure story, and is the spiritual successor to many of director Imaishi’s former works.
Thirty years has passed since the appearance of Burnish, a race of flame-wielding mutant beings, who destroyed half of the world with fire. When a new group of aggressive mutants calling themselves “Mad Burnish” appears, the epic battle between Galo Thymos, a new member of the anti-Burnish rescue team “Burning Rescue,” and Lio Fotia, the leader of “Mad Burnish” begins.
