The "Dragon Ball Super: Broly" is only a couple of days away from its major international release, and a new announcement about the movie has created even more hype. The anime series has been on a long break since its final episode of "Universal Survival Saga," which aired back in March 2018.

In between the hiatus, "Dragon Ball" has been releasing short teasers from the upcoming movie to keep fans excited. A spin-off game adaptation "Super Dragon Ball Heroes" series was also released at the same time that, sort of, compensated for the main series' long break. But now the series is finally returning with its release on the big screen.


Limited time IMAX release

A large number of fans have already pre-ordered their tickets for watching the "Dragon Ball Super: Broly" at their nearest theaters, but Funimation recently announced huge news about the movie's viewing. Better late than never, the movie will be coming to IMAX theaters in the United States. Better there are a couple of catches though. The feature will have a limited, one day run on January 16 and it will only be played in specific IMAX theaters. This announcement was made in the tweet below.

They've also included a link which shows you the nearest IMAX theater where the movie will be playing.

In case you the nearest IMAX theater is very far from your location and you really want to watch the movie on a big screen, you only have a couple of days to plan your trip. Other than that, the movie is going to play in regular theaters across the United States anyway.


What is IMAX?

IMAX is a viewing technique that provides immersive audio and video experience. Originally, IMAX was a 65mm film format, the biggest and highest-resolution motion picture film format in the world. Compared to regular theaters, IMAX has a giant screen and more field of view as well. The seats are generally closer to the screen, which pushes the edges of the image far enough so that you can feel immersed in the scene.

The early reviews of "Dragon Ball Super: Broly" from various reviewers and the Japanese release definitely makes it worth watching the epic Saiyan battles go down on a giant screen.

The film was a huge success and has already earned $32 million at the global box office.

The movie is set to be released on January 16 in the United States and Canada. There are various release dates for different countries and recently, the Movies finally announced its release in Bangladesh. Neighboring countries like India and Pakistan are still waiting for confirmation of the movie's release.
