View Full Version : Cowboy Bebop The Movie

Who thinks the Bebop movie is going to do well in theatres?

08-18-2002, 10:13 PM
Ohhh how I wish it was going to be more widely distributed... And if the movie theater I work at gets it... I'm going to have so much fun watching it for free XD
But, usually, anime movies are not highly distributed. I remember, I think, the Evangelion movie was in about... ohhh... 20 theaters tops, across the US?
Pfft... well, there's always Pokemon... gawd... after the 3rd movie, I'm damn sure my theater isn't gonna get this next one...

Well, I sure hope it does well . . . It has a shot at that, I think. Probably will do better than other releases (Metropolis, etc), since it has publicity from CN. Guess we'll see, I'm not making any bets either way.

I don't think any Theather is getting the next one. The fourth and fifth movies have been picked up by Miramax, not the WB, and I hear there plans are Direct to Video, so no one has to worry about that.

As for Cowboy Bebop, it may have a chance to do well considering. CB is coming off a very sucessful run on Adult Swim, so it does have some mainstream appeal. Not to metion that Sony Pictures is behind the production as they were with Metropolis. I think its penetration in the big cities could be very good, and it could put up Crouching Tiger numbers, which for an Anime movie would be amazing.

I've never seen the English dub... don't really want to, but if it's gonna be in theaters I'll support it anyway ^_^. Another excuse to cosplay lol. Hopefully it'll do good!

Anime is in theaters here in Vegas all the time. Escaflowne just left my local theater not to long ago ( my luck i didn't get to see it). i guess im still not used to living in such a huge tourist area. Im soo bored. The only up side to it ,is there is an anime store a block from my house:D
But they still don't have the auron 12inch statue. Can you tell im an Auron fan:thumbsup: Im running out of room on my wall for scrolls and all the other anime crap i have. I think my new angel sancuary one finished off my wall space.

Anyways i've been looking forward to "knocking on heavens door", but if it dose come out in theaters, vegas will likey get it. If that is the case i will camped out in front of the theater Star Wars style.

D'oh! I'm such an idiot~! I had not thought at ALL about the fact that I'm going to be going to the "US premiere" of Bebop, and I HAVE A FAYE COSTUME. I'm scared of my own brain these days. Things fall in there, and vanish into an abyss. =_=;;;

08-19-2002, 06:24 PM
I'm going to keep a look out for info on the theatrical release of Bebop in magazines like Entertainment Weekly and stuff because they have info on movies that are being brought into theatres (like spirited away!)

Hopefully the fact that Bebop was shown on adult swim will help the movie....
and plus the since they are keeping the dubbing cast from the show, the movie should have a really good dub!

Evangelion was shown in theatres?

When is the premiere? maybe that will shine light on when it will hit theaters. I was supposed to go to the US premiere of "X" but my grandfather died . I was pissed, i really wanted to go. I love X. OOO can't wait till september! THE X OAV HELL YA!!

It's premiering at BAAF. It'll be August 30th. With Watananbe-san, Kawamoto-san, and Kanno-san there to pump it up, with a Q+A after. I don't know, though, when it will get its limited release (they're probably going to do the NY/Chicago/LA thing), or the wider release. I'm sure SOMEONE will bug them about that at the Q+A, though I'd expect they'll announce it then anyway. ^^

Ayaka: You're going to be at the Premeir?

08-20-2002, 01:18 AM
Yes, I am. ^^

No, no, it is being released in theaters. I work at a theater, I have lists of release dates... Pokemon 4Ever is due out October 11th.

Back to Cowboy Bebop... You guys seriously think it'll do well? Hm. Okay. Well, since I'm gonna be a manager at my movie theater, I'll have some power to push for us getting it. And if it can do well in my theater... ;D

(@*&#(*&@!$~!!! It's premiering Aug. 30?! I'm not gonna be in NYC til the day after >.<

That's because it's a BAAF event, not AXNY. The horrorific complexity of that whole situation strikes again . . .

08-20-2002, 10:26 PM
Yes, yes, I know... but it almost makes me want to change my plans a little ^_^;;

*leaves a note in the theater office about getting CB*

08-20-2002, 11:55 PM

I hope its an awesome release. I might cosplay to it..

08-21-2002, 11:14 AM
Not might cosplay... you WILL cosplay lol. It's a law!.... or something @_@.

I would be a good spike, when my hair grows out it looks just like his. I'm thinking about it. But i wanted to make an auron costume.because my hair can look just like his too. But now im thinking about doing Sorata from X . Since the new OAV is coimng out and i have an Arashi doll (to carry around hugging, calling babe, and pledgeing my love for ):thumbsup:

I don't know what im going to do...*sigh*


....soo alone..


08-21-2002, 01:01 PM
I have a Spike costume and I was thinking about doing Subaru from X. Not sure when tho..

08-21-2002, 05:56 PM
yeah i saw your spike costume, i was right by you in the masquerade line.

08-21-2002, 08:57 PM
woah really? Awesome!

08-30-2002, 11:45 PM
A Cowboy Bebop movie?...*shudders* oo;...

08-31-2002, 05:29 PM
shudders..? That movie rules!!!

3..2...1...let's jam!


Good i love tank!

Lol last New Years eve me and my friends played it full blast for a hour strait from 12 to 1 to celebrate the new year!


Now that was fun!

anyways Himurakenshin23 is right cowboy bebop is one of my fav animes i should of started buying the dvds, but as long as CN still gots it. The CB dub is pretty good so i have no problims. Damn keep forgeting to pre order X. DAMN DAMN DAMN. ok ok. Um well at least we know CN won't get there hands on X. To many momies may call in and say "my child was exposed to nudity, violence, and fowel language! I don't want him to know about thies things when he gets out in the real world! I most shelter him!!"

i think i've gone to far...

09-01-2002, 01:02 AM
I downloaded X... :P
as long as I can d/l high quality eps, I'm probably not gonna bother buyin DVDs..
