The Pokémon Company International and Fathom Events Partner to Bring Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us to Cinemas in Select Locations Worldwide

First Trailer Unveiled for the New Animated Pokémon Movie, Coming to Theatres as a Limited Release Later This Year

Today, The Pokémon Company International announced that it is once again partnering with Fathom Events to bring a new animated film, Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us, to select cinemas in multiple territories as a limited theatrical release. The agreement with Fathom Events, the recognized leader in event cinema distribution, follows a successful cinema event collaboration last year that showcased Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You! and garnered strong attendance worldwide.

Based on the globally popular Pokémon brand, Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us follows Ash and Pikachu as they join forces with a diverse new cast of characters to rescue a seaside town from a series of threatening incidents. Filled with unique challenges and thrilling Pokémon battles, and set during a festival celebrating the Legendary Pokémon Lugia, this heartwarming film illustrates the value of teamwork and putting aside each other’s differences.

“Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us gives fans and families an opportunity to come together in witnessing new plotlines, characters, and settings unfold in the Pokémon world,” said J.C. Smith, senior director of consumer marketing at The Pokémon Company International. “We can’t wait to bring the magic of Pokémon to life on the big screen again with Fathom Events’ expertise in event cinema.”

The highly anticipated Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us will be shown in movie theatres in select markets. More information on the cinema events, including participating movie theatres, screening dates, and ticketing, will be available soon. Since debuting as Pokémon the Movie: Everyone’s Story in Japan, where the Pokémon franchise originated, the movie has already received widespread viewership.

“We are excited to work with The Pokémon Company International on their latest entry in animation by debuting Pokémon the Movie: The Power of Us outside of Japan,” said Ray Nutt, CEO of Fathom Events. “We look forward to delivering another high-quality Pokémon experience that will delight fans nationwide and abroad.”
