GKIDS is proud to present the cult classic Mind Game, from famed anime director Masaaki Yuasa (Devilman: Crybaby, Lu Over the Wall). Mind Game will open at the Landmark Nuart in Los Angeles on February 16th with a special midnight screening, which will be duplicated exclusively at additional Landmark Theatres locations for one-night only (additional night available in select locations), and will open in New York at the Metrograph on March 2nd for a traditional theatrical run.  For tickets and more information about national engagements, please visit www.mindgamemovie.com.

Buckle in and prepare to surrender yourself to an exhilarating and wildly entertaining ride. Cult classic Mind Game is an explosion of unconstrained expression - gloriously colorful images ricochet in rapid-fire associations, like Masaaki Yuasa's brain splattered onto the screen in all its goopy glory. Audiences will begin to grasp what they are in for early on as loser Nishi, too wimpy to try to save his childhood sweetheart from gangsters, is shot in the butt by a soccer-playing psychopath, projecting Nishi into the afterlife. In this limbo, God – shown as a series of rapidly changing characters – tells him to walk toward the light.  But Nishi runs like hell in the other direction and returns to Earth a changed man, driven to live each moment to the fullest.
