SAMURAI JACK: THE PREMIERE MOVIE EVENT: Fathom Event Teases The Ultimate Theatrical Fan Experience Set For October 16
If you can help clearing your schedule for October 16 and you’re a fan of Genndy Tartakovsky’s hit animated brainchild, Samurai Jack, you may be in for an exclusive treat. Fathom Events is holding the Ultimate Fan Experience with Samurai Jack: The Premiere Movie Event only on the aforementioned date at 7:00 p.m. local time, remastered in high definition with exclusive extras from Samurai Jack: The Complete Series Box Set and for attending fans along with other surprises.
“Samurai Jack: The Premiere Movie Event” follows a young Samurai after he is sent to the future by the evil wizard, Aku. Determined to undo his destruction, Jack sets off on a daring journey to return to the past and defeat Aku once and for all. Gathering allies and combating other villains along the way, Jack battles to accomplish his mission and restore the peace of the past.
The screening takes place just a day before the complete box set, packed with all 62 episodes and much more, arrives courtesy of Warner Bros. Pre-orders are now available by clicking here. The show has been a hit with fans since debuting on Cartoon Network in 2001 and lasting three years before a long hiatus would lead up to its fifth and final season back in May on the network’s nightly Adult Swim block.
“Although the beloved Samurai Jack series has concluded, the action-packed fun isn’t over yet,” Fathom Events CEO Ray Nutt said. “Our partnership with Adult Swim was created to ensure that audiences have the opportunity to get the ultimate Samurai Jack experience alongside other fans in a community setting.”
“We’re excited to partner with Fathom Events to bring Samurai Jack fans an event they’ll never forget,” Erik Resnick, SVP, business development and commercial strategy for Cartoon Network, Adult Swim and Boomerang, said. “Not only will they be able to relive the action-packed premiere that ignited their love for the series, but they’ll be able to experience Samurai Jack like never before, alongside others who share their excitement.”
Tickets for Samurai Jack: The Premiere Movie Event are now available via the official Fathom Events website or at participating theater box offices.
