Fireworks Trailer

GKIDS’ “Fireworks” Gets First Trailer

GKIDS has just released the first trailer for the forthcoming Fireworks and we are not disappointed.

Telling a simple story of adolescent love and longing, Akiyuki Shinbo and Nobuyuki Takeuchi’s Firework is traditional in nearly every way…except for that sci-fi twist.  A multi-color ball, found in the sea, has the power to reset the clock and give the holder a second chance to right the wrong and steal the kiss.  But with each reset a new complication arises, slowly taking them away from the real world.

The trailer, complete with english subtitles, sets the plot up well, giving viewers a lot to absorb as we watch a love triangle turn into a dying plea to go back and capitalize on missed opportunities.  The innocence and urgency of young lovers sells a universal theme that we can all relate to - just maybe not the alternate universe…in a literal sense at least.

Fireworks will premiere as a special Fathom event on July 3 before hitting theaters a day later.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
