Third and Highly Anticipated Final Chapter of Hideaki Sorachi‘s Original Manga Series Comes to Theaters for Two Nights Only

DENVER – October 7, 2021 – The countdown to destruction has begun! The third and concluding film of the fan favorite Gintama anime franchise, “Gintama THE VERY FINAL,” will come to cinemas across the country courtesy of Fathom Events and Eleven Arts. Created by Hideaki Sorachi, the new feature film will make its North American debut following its release in Japan earlier this year. “Gintama THE VERY FINAL” will play in select movie theaters on Sunday, November 21 at 3:00 p.m. (dubbed in English) and 7:00 p.m. (subtitled in English) and Monday, November 22 at 7:00 p.m. (subtitled in English). All times are local. As part of these special in-theater events, fans will view exclusive animated bonus content featuring Sorachi.

Tickets for “Gintama THE VERY FINAL” can be purchased online at www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. A complete list of theater locations is available on the Fathom Events website (participating theaters are subject to change).

Directed by Chizuru Miyawaki and starring the voice talents of Tomokazu Sugita (Gintoki Sakata), Rie Kugimiya (Kagura), and Daisuke Sakaguchi (Shinpachi Shimura), the film adapts some of the final moments of the original manga with new elements specifically crafted for the film.

As Earth faces its darkest days, the members of the Odd Jobs must come together to save it from an otherworldly menace. While old allies Gintoki, Takasugi, and Katsura strive their hardest for their own ideals, standing in their way is someone with whom they share a sad history: Utsuro, an alternate personality of their former teacher and mentor, Shoyu. Having been spawned by Altana, the energy that fuels all planets, this immortal fiend has regenerated multiple times until finally becoming Utsuro, the ultimate enemy… and he intends to take down the entire world in order to end his own life. Gintoki and the others must now set out to fulfill the wishes of their teacher Shoyo and thwart Utsuro’s plans. As Utsuro’s power grows and Takasugi battles for his very life, Shinpachi, Kagura, the Shinsengumi, members of the Kabuki District, and even former enemies will join their fight.

“’Gintama THE VERY FINAL‘ had a very successful debut during its theatrical run in Japan, besting ‘Demon Slayer: Mugen Train’ for the number one spot opening weekend,” said Daren Miller, Fathom Events VP, Programming, Strategy & Business Affairs. “We’re pleased to again partner with Eleven Arts to bring two unforgettable nights of this incredible title to fans nationwide.”
