FLOWER MOUND, Texas, July 24, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  FUNimation® Entertainment announced today that it will be kicking-off the limited theatrical release of the English dub of "Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'" with a U.S. premiere on Monday, August 3, 2015 at 6:30pm at the AMC Empire 25 located in the 42nd Street Entertainment Center in New York City. The premiere will include a red carpet event prior to the screening that will include cast members and other celebrities.

Actors Seán Schemmel and Christopher R. Sabat, starring in the roles of Goku and Vegeta respectively, will be attending the premiere and the red carpet event prior to the screening.  Schemmel and Sabat are reprising their roles from last year's highly-successful Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods. Both actors are in New York City as part of a press tour for the movie.

"New York City is home to one of our biggest fan communities and was one of our top cities with last year's Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods," said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and founder of FUNimation. "We're pleased to bring the U.S. premiere to them as we launch our August 4 – 12 limited theatrical event of Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F.'"

FUNimation produced the special 15-minute, Dragon Ball Z themed pre-show to create a unique experience for fans that can only be found in theaters. The show includes exclusive cast interviews discussing Frieza's revival and his role in the Dragon Ball Z series.

Fans will be able to play along in real-time, using their mobile phone and the hashtag #DBZRF on Twitter. Winners will be picked from across the U.S. and Canada throughout the entire theatrical run.

"The response to Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' has been incredible and advance ticket sales have already far exceeded last year's movie," said Mike DuBoise, COO of FUNimation. "We encourage fans to purchase tickets as early as possible to ensure they don't miss the opportunity to experience the movie in theaters; as well as join others in our interactive trivia contest as part of the special pre-show."
