What perfect timing! As many of you may know; the recent Anime adaptation “Parasyte – The Maxim” has only just ended, and it came with quite a hefty lesson to be learnt about life, love and the fragility of existence. Hype around the series is at an all-time high; at this point in time everyone has watched the Anime and has seen how damn good it is, people will now be rushing to stores looking to purchase whatever they can of the Manga in the hopes that it is just as good as the Anime, and now people will be very much looking forward to the live-action movie.
The first film in the series of “Parasyte” movies is titled “The Invasion Begins”n and opened in Japan on the 29th of November last year to an incredibly positive reception. Now Madman Entertainment are bringing that very movie to Aussie shores for one day only in April. More specifically; April the 26th.
As of right now, no information regarding locations, times and ticket sales have been disclosed BUT Madman are not the types to keep fans in waiting for too long so you can expect to hear about the specifics very soon. For now just be happy that this fine movie will be coming to local cinemas so that you can experience the horror of an alien invasion on the big screen!
PARASYTE: PART 1 tells the story of Shinichi Izumi, an ordinary high school student who is attacked by an alien parasite – a mysterious worm-like creature which penetrates the ears or nose of an ordinary human, attaching itself to the brain and eventually taking over the entire body.
Whilst Shinichi is able to fight off the parasite before it reached his brain, it remains within his right hand. Shinichi Izumi and the parasite now live as one. They both come to understand that if one dies, then so will the other. In a bid to survive, they join forces to fight against the threat of other parasites. – Madman Entertainment
