Studio Trigger’s popular anime movie, Promare, is coming to home video. On May 5, Promare will be available for digital download and on-demand. Then on May 19, a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and a standalone DVD will be released.
In addition to the movie, both the digital and physical versions will include bonus features, including an interview with director Hiroyuki Imaishi, a roundtable with Studio Trigger, and the short films Side: Galo and Side: Lio.
If you pre-order the Promare Blu-ray/DVD combo through ShoutFactory.com for $27, you’ll receive an exclusive, limited-edition lithograph. Amazon also has the Blu-ray/DVD combo for $27, but it doesn’t come with the lithograph. Best Buy will also be offering an exclusive limited edition Promare Steelbook, set to release on May 19, but it’s not available to pre-order just yet. As for the cost of the other versions, the DVD runs around $17 at Amazon and the digital version is $20 on iTunes.
Promare is Studio Trigger’s first major length film and is coming off of a successful North American run. Though the movie was in exclusive theaters for a limited period of time, it’s earned over $2 million at the box office in the US. Combined with its international earnings, Promare has grossed almost $10 million USD in sales. For an anime film, especially one that had a limited release, those are big numbers.
