FUNimation Entertainment has expanded an agreement with The Bigger Picture, a division of Access Integrated Technologies, to screen two upcoming anime feature films and two live-action movies that Funimation recently acquired in theaters throughout the United States. In late January 2008, Vexille will receive a limited theatrical release, followed by One Piece: Episode of Alabaster - Sabaku no Ojou to Kaizoku Tachi.
The other two films included under this agreement are Yoji Yamada's Love and Honor, and Genghis Khan - To the Ends of the Earth and Sea. Love and Honor will open on November 3 at the Mann Beverly Center 13 in Los Angeles and the ImaginAsian in New York City. Last year, under a similar agreement, The Bigger Picture and Funimation organized theatrical screenings of two Dragon Ball Z movies, as well as movie theater previews of Funimation-licensed television series Basilisk and Trinity Blood.
