Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! to Receive Expanded Theatrical Release


Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! is headed to theaters this month, with screenings on both Nov. 5 and Nov. 6. And now, two additional screening dates have also been added for U.S. fans. On Nov. 11 and Nov. 14, Pokémon the Movie will have encore showings in theaters.

Pokémon the Movie will be screened on Saturday, Nov. 11 at 12:55pm, as well as Tuesday, Nov. 14 at 7pm, according to My Nintendo News. The additional days come from high demand for the movie, after theaters and venues reported high audience numbers and sold out screenings for the film’s original run.

There’s a catch to the additional days, however. To celebrate the film’s launch, filmgoers on Nov. 5 and Nov. 6 are eligible for a limited edition trading card and a code for a special event inside Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. Those goodies won’t be available to Nov. 11 or Nov. 14 viewers. Only fans who bought tickets for the original two dates will be given the promotional goodies.

Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You!’s release falls just at the right time, as fans are eagerly awaiting Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon’s arrival later this month. Initial reports claim the film is also airing on Disney XD in late November, although no official announcement has been made regarding a television screening for Pokémon the Movie. In the meantime, U.S. fans can pick up their movie ticket over at Fathom Events.
