As expected from anime films, “Boruto: Naruto the Movie,” original premiere date has been delayed. Does it have something to do with the rumored live-action adaptation of the film?
According to Crossmap, the original release date of the anime film was scheduled on Oct. 7, but Viz Media suddenly decided to delay it for three days without explaining the reason. Though it was pushed back, fans should not worry as the movie tickets for the anime film are already available online!
The said movie tickets are being sold on Eleven Arts’ official site. The site officially announced on their Facebook page that they are now accepting reservations for “Boruto: Naruto the Movie” which is totally hassle-free as people can also reserve tickets as per their respective locations (US).
It was earlier reported by Anime News Network (ANN) that the movie garnered a total of $5.46 million in just three days after the anime film was released on theaters last month.
Aside from having a financial success in Japan, ANN added that it also exceeded the “Naruto” animated film, having 115.1% over “The Last: Naruto the Movie” which was only able to sold more than 1.5 million tickets earning ¥2 billion during its entire 19-day theatrical run.
On the other hand, Design & Trend previously reported citing another rumor about the upcoming “Boruto: Naruto the Movie” that like “Dragonball: Evolution,” it will also have a live-action version, however, it has not been confirmed when.
Adding on, it was also reported that Lionsgate is currently negotiating with the Naruto creator, Masashi Kishimoto to secure the film rights of the anime film.
If the adaptation will happen, it is likely to be passed on to the hand of Michael Gracey, a visual effects specialist. It was previously reported that Lionsgate was able to sign Gracey to direct the film.
Moreover, Arad Productions of Avi and Ari Arad will reportedly be the producers of the live-action anime movie.
According to different theories, if ever the “Boruto: Naruto the Movie” will be successful, theatrically, it was possible that a live-action version will be produced.
What do you think? Will it be as good as the anime film or will it make fans disappointed?
