It will be shown in the West End on August 23 ahead of its digital release on August 30. The press release didn’t say which theater in West End it would be shown, but since it is a rather hopping section of the city, we figure Londoners will have an inkling where it will premiere. We’ll still try to find out for you.

The film will also debut in US cinemas later this month, and you can find the preliminary list through here.

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy 15 tells the story behind Final Fantasy 15, and features the following actors who have lent their chops: Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) as Nyx Ulric , Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) as Princess Lunafreya and Sean Bean (GoT, The Lord of the Rings) as King Regis .

Director Takeshi Nozue will attend the premiere alongside other contributors, according to the press release.

In the film, King Regis is attempting to save the city of Insomnia from the Niflheim empire with the help his elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive, led by Nyx Ulric. The Niflheim are trying to steal the sacred Crystal.

The battle doesn’t go well, and the King is forced with an ultimatum: to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae, a captive of the Niflheim empire. He is also to surrender his lands, but the Kingsglaive do their best to stand between the Niflheim and its plans for “world domination.”

Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy 15 has a 110 run time, and will be released on Blu-ray and DVD August 30. Final Fantasy 15 will hit PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles on September 30.
