Re:Cycle Penguindrum Movies coming to theatres on May 20th

Written by Ross Locksley on 10 May 2023



For one day only, you can catch the Re:Cycle Penguindrum movies back to back, exclusively at Odeon cinemas. The films were crowdfunded in Japan for the 10th anniversary of the Penguindrum series, bringing Kunihiko Ikuhara (Sailor Moon, Revolutionary Girl Utena) back to teh director's chair for a retelling of his Mawaru Penguindrum series.

Blending Ikuhara's complex character studies with an arthouse feel, these are films that deserve to be seen on the big screen. Shown in Japanese with English subtitles, the films are separated by a 10 minute intermission.

Watch the trailer:

Synopsis:

This is a story about certain siblings, suddenly-appeared penguins, and the past and the future of this world...

The Takakura brothers, Kamba and Syoma, search for PENGUINDRUM by order of a mysterious penguin-shaped hat to save their ill sister Himari.

Ringo Oginome keeps realizing that her destiny has been written in a diary.

Masako Natsume tries to get her hands on Ringo’s diary to find her new destiny.

Keijyu Tabuki and Yuri Tokikago attempt to get back their precious person of fate.

All seek the PENGUINDRUM for their own sake and that of someone dear to them.

 

Ten years later...

Kamba and Syoma, who rode the train to change fate, momentarily come back from the place their fate took them…
