It has been years since Yu-Gi-Oh! shared its first film, but the franchise hasn’t forgotten the classic. After 14 years, the movie is finally heading back to theaters, and a brand-new trailer for the film will get you feeling emotional.
Are you ready to cry about the Heart of the Cards or what?
This month, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie will return to theaters for a special screening thanks to Fathom Events. 4K Media has teamed up with the company to show Yugi Muto’s first big screen adventure to nationwide audiences for a two-day event. March 11 and 12 will see the heralded film enter theaters, and its trailer will get you hyped.
As you can see above, the clip is a short one, but it is packed with nostalgia. Fans are shown Yugi Muto as the Duel Monsters enthusiast finds his treasured Millennium Puzzle. The reel goes on to show Yugi as the boy combines with the puzzle’s spirit known as Yami Yugi. The connected duo duel against guys like Seto Kaiba in this action-filled trailer, and Duel Monsters such as the Blue-Eyes White Dragon get highlighted as well.
Participating theaters can be found on Fathom Events' website. You can read up on the movie event’s description below:

For those unfamiliar with Yu-Gi-Oh!, the series was originally created by Kazuki Takahashi. It ran in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump from September 1996 to March 2004. The series follows Yugi Muto, a young boy who solves an ancient puzzle and is possessed by the spirit of the Egyptian pharoah. Being skilled at deadly games, the Pharoah goes on to create and solve problems for Yugi based on deadly games of chance.
