    Let us know how your theater experience is! Hoping mines is brimming with One Piece fans, old and new alike!

    (But no dub haters, please.... I dunno how i'll handle one in real life, they're annoying enough online)

    I'm going to see the movie tonight but there is a Severe Wind Watch in my area so that may affect attendance.

    Geez. My local theater doesn't even have one shred evidence that it's showing Film Gold. Not a poster, not a presence on the marquee... not even the movie times for it on the box office screen. I had to ask the box-office lady about it and even she was kinda confused for a second until she knew what I was talking about. >__>

    When I went to see Battle of Gods and Ressurrction F, the theater was brimming with energy because of excited DBZ fans.

    ...I'm not.... I'm not gonna experience that here with Film Gold.... am I? :-(

    I'm going to be seeing it in Toronto on Monday! I'm so excited - One Piece isn't all that well known in my area (one bookstore occasionally gets a volume), so it'll be interesting to be in a place that (hopefully) has a lot of fans of the series!

    In to see it now, I was wrong, tickers were for 7:30. I'm at Arizona Mills Harkins.

    I doubt anyone here is too but just checking.

    Welp. I expected as much. :-(

    I honestly hope my local theater doesn't cancel future showings due to low attendance on opening day... because that'd suck for me (i'm gonna watch it on Thursday).

    Just came back from the 7:30 showing. Theater was a little over half full. Some enthusiastic fans sat behind me getting hyped, and everyone laughed at all of the funny bits.

    I really enjoyed this movie. The aesthetic of Gran Tesoro alone is breath-taking and the casino theme gels perfectly with the One Piece cast.
    I made a mental list of the hidden cameos I spotted:
    Spoiler:

    Heracles
    Vice Admiral Chaton
    Wanze
    Absalom


    I might have missed a few, but that's who I saw.

    The theater was full aside from 10 or so seats and the movie was great! Definitely the best One Piece movie, everyone laughed at the comedic parts and references, enjoyed all the action parts and character moments and they all clapped at the end when I started clapping

    Main things I wanna ask --

    - Did they play any movie previews beforehand?

    - Sabo. How was Sabo's voice?

    - Koala. How was Koala's voice (I realize she has like one line, but still lol)

    - Did Luffy deepen his voice any for Fourth Gear?

    - Did they translate the credits, or just leave them in Japanese (hate when they leave 'em in Japanese, just seems lazy)

    - And lastly, did they keep the ending song intact or replaced it ala Strong World's release.

    the movie was really good and loved just about all of it. Overall though I think film z was a better film, but I think Gild Tesoro was probably a better villian though. I enjoyed his character and I really liked and understood his backstory, and the VA that played also did a fantastic job. It helped that I have been watching the english dub of hunter x hunter so I could hear the hisoka in him. I am most likely going to go see it again on monday.

    The weird local arthouse theater that I frequent did, but they only showed previews for movies that specific theater was going to be showing. No idea about others.

    - Sabo. How was Sabo's voice?
    In order for something to be gained, something of equal value must be lost. This is the law of equivalent exchange.

    - Koala. How was Koala's voice (I realize she has like one line, but still lol)
    Fine. A bit deeper than I expected, but it worked for her.

    - Did Luffy deepen his voice any for Fourth Gear?
    Hard to tell. It sounded like it, but then again it also just kinda sounded like typical Angry Clinkenbeard Voice.

    - Did they translate the credits, or just leave them in Japanese (hate when they leave 'em in Japanese, just seems lazy)
    Credits were in Japanese, with English-language credits scrolling at the end. Rather made sense this time though, with how the credits were animated.

    - And lastly, did they keep the ending song intact or replaced it ala Strong World's release.
    Don't worry. That weird, screamy, beautiful song was kept perfectly intact.

    Speaking of songs, Gold and Jive was, well, it was acceptable. The lyrics were well adapted, but the singers lacked the energy that's really needed for swing. Maybe it was a confidence thing, I don't know. It wasn't as well-done as the song from Film: Z, but at the same time, it was about as good as you can reasonably ask for a Japanese-to-English song translation.

    Overall, a really fun, lively experience. The real joy of watching the movie in a theater came not from the dub (though it was very well done) but from the audience. Being around fans who could get hype at all the big hype moments was great, but what really made me smile was the reactions from the complete One Piece newbies around me, who made me remember why elements that have grown expected now were hype to begin with. If you've got a chance to watch it in theaters, I highly recommend it. This entertainment is best suited for a crowd.

    The only trailers my theater played were for movies that are coming out within the next few months (Lego Batman, Spider-Man, Transformers and Power Rangers)

    Vic was great as Sabo and you could hear and see the girls in front of me fangirling over Sabo and the fact that he was voiced by Vic. Let be frank though, this movie is probably the best time I've had at the movies since Dragon Ball Z Resurrection F. Seeing something I love on the big screen with others fans of it all around me enjoying as well as me was great. They understood the callbacks, references, cameos and clapped at the end when I started to clap. Had I just say, seen the speed sub, it wouldn't feel as complete to me. This movie was so entertaining that it deserves to be seen in theaters. I mean, at the end of the day, Spandam and Lucci and maybe even Sabo didn't need to be there, but I loved it! See this in theaters please! Support the official release because I want this to keep happening for One Piece and the genre in general.

    Koala's voice was pretty good and I remember seeing her actress credited in the English credits after the Japanese ones but I don't exactly remember what her name was. Guess we'll have to wait for the Blu-ray if nobody else catches it.

    Also, I can only guess that the theaters were more full than with Movie 8 nearly 10 years ago which is a great sign and as an added plus, there were no dub haters in attendance. There were even a few people from Asia in the audience and they didn't groan at it, they loved it just as much as the rest of the audience did.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Jeannie Tirado was Koala's voice actress

    So here's something that's been bothering me since more glimpses of the film came out.

    When Tesoro is in his big Gold Statue form.... how da hell is he able to shoot lasers? I thought his powers were derived from Gold, shooting lasers comes out of left-field. Lmao.... I know it's One Piece, but still... Just seems a bit too out-of-theme. Do they explain that?
