Three of the clips center on All Might, who is still able to achieve his powerful form in the film. Seeing the Symbol of Peace back in action likely comes as a breath of fresh air to many fans, who have been haunted by the bleak prospects of the hero world in recent episodes.

One of the clips, however, focuses on Midoriya himself. In his One for All Full Cowling form, he lept around on a moving platform as he went up against a villain, whose face was apparently plastered in metal.

Of course, a few lucky fans saw the film at the beginning of the summer. An exclusive world premiere was held at Anime Expo in Los Angeles on July 5. Hosted by Funimation and TOHO, the event showed the film in Japanese with English subtitles, the response was overwhelmingly positive.
For those that have not heard, the film is set at the beginning of summer vacation fo U.A. students. After the stress of finals, Midoriya and All Might receive a strange invitation to an artifical city called I-Island, moving through the ocean. Before leaving for the summer training camp, they decide to accept.
I-Island, as it turns out, is a kind of "science Hollywood," according to Funimation's synopsis. There, they attend an "I-Expo," where research on quirks and hero technology is on full display. However, it is not long before villains breach the island's security system and take all the guests hostage. All Might and Deku are forced to act to prevent cataclysmic events that could alter hero society forever.
My Hero Academia: Two Heroes will debut in North America in 400 theaters across the U.S. and Canada. Screenings will be held on Sep. 25, 26, 27, 29 and Oct. 2. The full details are available on the film's official website.0comments
