Blue Exorcist the Movie US screening

The long awaited Blue Exorcist The Movie is hitting select theatres in the United States this August. For one Saturday only, catch Rin and Yukio Okumura as they defend their school and the world from Satan’s forces on the big screen. The movie will be dubbed in English.

Every eleven years, True Cross Academy celebrates a festival with the town that encompasses the school. While everyone is setting up for the carnival, the barriers protecting the town and school are being repaired at the same time. A ghost train seizes the opportunity to cause havoc and in turn, brothers Rin and Yukio Okumura are ordered to investigate, but find a demon posing as a young boy. Joining the Okumura twins is Cheng-Long Liu, an exorcist from Taiwan, but the mission begins to change for those involved.

Blue Exorcist The Movie was originally released on December 28th, 2012 in Japan.
