That’s right, if you live in Australia or New Zealand then you will have the opportunity to go see an event screening of the newest Pok√©mon movie, “Kyurem vs. The Sword of Justice.” Hoyts Cinemas will be airing Movie 15 of the Pok√©mon franchise in selected cinemas throughout Australia and New Zealand for two weekends only; February 16th-17th, and February 23rd-24th.
The Hoyts Cinemas website provides the following synopsis;
During a train trip, Ash and friends spot an injured Pok√©mon they don’t recognize. They’re planning a rescue when the train is attacked by the Legendary Kyurem! Ash and the others manage to get the unfamiliar Pok√©mon to safety, and they learn its story…
The Mythical Pok√©mon Keldeo is on a mission to rescue its friends – Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion, the Swords of Justice – from Kyurem’s icy clutches. But Kyurem has other ideas, and when it transforms into Black Kyurem or White Kyurem for greater power, things look grim!
Can Keldeo find the courage to stand up to this menace? Find out at selected Hoyts cinemas from 16 February!
