I been mulling it over and I hope that since we are getting the first Gantz live action movie, We should consider running a " Gantz Day" which is sorta like " Hetalia day"
Gantz Day would be a unofficial event organized by fans where on January 20, 2011 Anyone who would want to meet up for a showing of the movie followed by something else. ( Maybe a quick dinner at a local restaurant.) All fans would be welcome to attend. You could cosplay as one of the characters or even do a casual cosplay if you wish not to make a body suit or just show up in your own clothes. You can take a few pictures and report your experience on this journal or anywhere else.
Q & A:
1. Will the movie be English dubbed or subbed?
According to the article on ANN, they are saying that the movie will be English Dubbed, however there is no word if the original ADV english cast was used for the dubbing of the movie ( The movie is being presented by Viz Media's " New People" line.) Plus, there's suppose to be a live interview with two of the Japanese actors from the movie following the film.
2. I don't live in the US and I don't know if the movie will be in my Country. If it does, Do I have still do Gantz day on January 20?
No. The date is reflecting the date listed for US Theaters. If you happen to find out that the movie will be airing in your country, Then share it with the members of the community who might be in the same area as you and organize it for the release day if possible.
3. I live in the US and I want to do an event but I can't do it that day. Is that a problem?
According to New event, the movie is being shown as a one time only deal. That is the only day you can see it.
4. How do I organize a Gantz Day?
You can post an ad here ( I hope this will be okay with the mods if possible. If not, I can make a separate community.) telling what city and state the event will take place, what theater you will be meeting up at, what time the movie starts, and any little tidbits you think are important. Ex: " Gantz Day" Birmingham, AL Theater: Trussville 16 Time: 6:00 pm on 1/20/11 ( Movie showing is at 7:00 pm.) and so on and so on. If you happen to be a member on Facebook, use the event feature to organize and advertise it.
5. What is the rating for the first Gantz movie?
According to Fandango.com The movie has been rated R.
