BATTLE ROYALE presented by Cult Classics, Zia Records & Anchor Bay
"My favorite movie of all-time." - Quentin Tarantino
Cult Classics & Zia Records present BATTLE ROYALE - sponsored by Anchor Bay Entertainment!
Kinji Fukasaku's 2000 cult masterpiece about school children pitted in a game show style battle to the death - never released commercially in the United States arrives in Phoenix, Arizona in an EXCLUSIVE limited engagement to Cult Classics!
In the near future, the economy has collapsed, unemployment has soared and juvenile crime has exploded. Fearful of their nation's wild youth, the Japanese government passes The BR Law: Each year, a 9th grade class is sent to a remote island where they are forced to participate in the ultimate game of survival. Each insubordinate student is locked into an exploding neck collar, given a random weapon, and forced to hunt and kill their peers until there is only one survivor.
Chiaki Kuriyama (KILL BILL) and screen legend Takeshi "BEAT" Kitano (BOILING POINT, BROTHER) star in this wickedly satirical, darkly humorous and gleefully violent action/horror/comedy that has been argued, acclaimed and banned around the world. Nominated for 10 Japanese Academy Awards (including Best Picture), and withheld from U.S. distribution due to its crazed kiddie carnage, BATTLE ROYALE remains, more than 10 years after its original Japanese release, one of the most savage, shocking and emotionally powerful films of all-time.
This is the uncensored and unrated version of this legendary cult classic, finally available for the first time ever in America. DON'T MISS IT! This is your only chance to see it on the big screen in Phoenix!
BATTLE ROYALE screens at MADCAP Theaters at 730 S. Mill Avenue Tempe, AZ 85281 on March 23rd at 9pm and 11pm. Tickets are $10 general admission and $20 for a VIP Ticket that includes a limited edition BATTLE ROYALE art print.
In keeping with the theme of the film, the first 42 pre-sales will receive a mystery item at the screening, so don't delay!
