I was just thinking about the very first Pokemon movie a few days ago. I actually went to see it in theaters, and yes, I was in high school at the time! Still, I realized that it has been quite some time since Pokemon movies were in theaters. They are now straight-to-DVD, and if they're lucky, they get a premiere on TV first.
That's all going to change with Pokémon the Movie: White—Victini and Zekrom. While it may not be as big a movie theater deal as the original movies, Pokémon the Movie: White—Victini and Zekrom is going to see limited release in 300 theaters across North America. Hopefully one of those theaters ends up close to home!
It's nice to see this kind of thing happening again, even if it is a limited time engagement. It's better than nothing, and I'm hoping fans come out in full force to show their support. Who knows, maybe if this run goes well we'll see a bigger release for the next inevitable movie.
