Rebooted anime series, Hunter x Hunter, is slated to premiere a film this coming January 2013. Entitled “Gekijō-ban HUNTER×HUNTER Hiiro no Gen’ei (Phantom Rouge)” 「劇場版 HUNTER×HUNTER 緋色の幻影（ファントム・ルージュ）」, the film will set foot on the silverscreen on January 12, 2013. HxH movie staff claims that the movie will be showing “dramatic action.”
Deducing from the title, the movie is set during the Geneiryodan arc of the Hunter x Hunter manga, which will focus on the four protagonists meet up in York New City years after the Hunter exam. The story will mainly involve Kurapika in his search for the Phantom Troupe. The staff also hinted that the Phantom Troupe will appear in the next season of the rebooted anime series.
Hunter x Hunter is created by Yoshihiro Togashi. It has sold over 60 million copies of manga volumes, and has spawned two anime series, with the latest reboot recently ending in the Hunter Exam arc.
