We probably don’t need to remind the legions of Sword Art Online fans out there but if by some chance you didn’t know then yes Sword Art Online The Movie: Ordinal Scale will be hitting UK cinemas nationwide today!
There will be further select screening from the 21st April for those that can’t make it to tonight’s screenings. That said those select screening tend to be few and far between so be sure to check out the official movie website for full listings and ticket bookings at http://saothemovie.co.uk/
Synopsis: The film is set a decade in the future, in 2026. Games technology has advanced in astonishing ways, allowing players to immerse themselves in epic scenarios. True, there were abuses of the technology in its early years, and some terrible tragedies, but the advance of the games industry is unstoppable.
Now, a new games machine has hit the market, called the Augma. It’s a ‘next gen wearable device’ that allows you to conjure up a raptor in your lap, or transform your local neighbourhood into a battlezone where only you can save the world. But what if the impossible happened… If the game was no longer just a game, and all the ‘virtual’ monsters and perils were suddenly real?
Luckily some of the players enmeshed in this situation have experienced the dark side of VR gaming before… Let battle commence!
