Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale
Exclusive previews on 19th April 2017. Further screenings from 21st April 2017.
Synopsis: "“Ordinal Scale,” an ARMMO-RPG that was designed exclusively for “Augma.”
Following its release, it has become the most discussed game due to its advanced technology. In this game, players can raise their rank by collecting items that appear in various places in the real world and by defeating monsters. This “Ranking System” is the main feature of the game, and in this system, each player’s status is determined by their rank which is indicated by an ordinal number instead of a cardinal number.
As the result, high ranking players are given overwhelming power and often rank has become a major factor in deciding the outcome of a PvP battle."

Directed by Kenji Kamiyama (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex, Eden of the East, 009 Re Cyborg, Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit)
Synopsis: "This fender and genre-bending film takes us into the not-too-distant machine-driven future. Kokone should be diligently studying for her university entrance exams, but she just can’t seem to stay awake. Aside from stealing precious study time, her napping is even more distracting, as it brings on strange dreams with warring machines that hint at family secrets that have been dormant for years. She can’t ask her father, a hipster mechanic more talented and artful than his job requires, as he’s always busy modifying motorcycles and cars in flights of fancy. What are these visions that lead Kokone at once closer to and farther away from her family?
Like all the best anime, the film revels in multilayered fantasy to show how sometimes opposites—waking and dreaming, the past and the future—are far more intertwined than they appear."
The film will be screenings in cinemas in UK & Ireland in summer 2017 in Japanese with English subtitles
