Cowboy Bebop Movie in US Theaters This August

One of the greatest anime series of all time is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and, coming off of Anime Expo 2018 I’m all about anything anime related right now. Funimation has announced that it will be showing Cowboy Bebop The Movie: Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door in the US August 15 – August 16 in select theaters. If you prefer you anime subbed and not dubbed then the August 15th showing is for you. However, if you like the English dubbed version then you should go on August 16th. The film originally opened in Japan all the way back in 2001, and previously screened in the U.S. back in 2002 and 2003. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to see it back then so I’m glad I get a second chance at seeing it on the big screen.

“Caught up in a world of dreams, lost in the cruelty of reality. What should have been an easy bounty turns into biological war after a terrorist gets ahold of a deadly virus. Drawn in by the pretty price on the mastermind’s head, Spike and the Bebop crew are ready to collect a much-needed reward. Unfortunately, the gang’s about to find themselves in more trouble than money when the terrorist threatens to unleash the virus on Halloween—effectively killing everyone on Mars. With little time and leads that seem more dreamy than helpful, they’ll have to use their own bag of tricks to stop a dangerous plot.”

Cowboy Bebop is one of my favorite anime series of all time and Knockin on Heaven’s Door was intense. This was definitely one of those movies that really made you think that our heroes had finally met their match. Honestly, It’s been a while since I’ve actually seen it so I am excited for this. Most likely you can find this movie on most of the anime streaming services like Crunchyroll or Funimation, but I definitely look forward to events like this because it gives us a chance to meet up with other anime fans. If you are interested in going to see the Cowboy Bebop Movie in theaters then your best bet is to use Fandango to look up when and where it will be playing near you.
