West Coast Premiere

Having destroyed the moon, Koro-sensei, a 7 foot tentacled yellow octopus from outer space,  announces his intention to destroy Earth, however, he offers one concession: allow him to train a class of failing students to be assassins so that they can kill him and halt Earth’s destruction.

The Ministry of Defence agrees – on the condition that their own agents are allowed to teach at the school. And so begins the most violent, brilliant and touching school year that you’ll ever see.

Each day, the students attempt to kill Koro-sensei in increasingly inventive ways, with each assassination attempt he teaches them something about themselves, changing their lives in the process.

Added to the mix are various assassin’s, aliens and a threat even more dangerous than Koro-sensei himself.

Possessing ample visual invention and set at a brilliantly blinding pace, this super-smart adaptation of the wildly-popular manga ASSASSINATION CLASSROOM proves that you can create a VFX heavy film that can also be human, funny and feel completely real.

This is outrageously fun filmmaking at its absolute best.
