PVR To Screen Psycho-Pass Providence Film In India; Reveals Release Date

The official website of PVR Cinemas, an Indian multiplex chain, has listed the latest Psycho-Pass film, titled Psycho-Pass Providence, for release in the Indian theatres.

Much to fans surprise, the film will be premiering in India on the same day as its Japanese release; i.e., May 12, 2023. However, an official announcement is yet to be made by PVR.

According to the site, the film will be screened in Japanese dub with English subtitles.

Incidentally, the website seemed to have displayed the name of the movie incorrectly or rather just put out the first part of the name. But considering the other information mentioned, we can be sure that they meant Psycho-Pass Providence film.

Psycho-Pass is a Japanese cyberpunk psychological thriller anime television series produced by Production I.G.

The series aired on Fuji TV’s Noitamina programming block between October 2012 and March 2013.

Set in a dystopia of Sibyl System’s governance of Japan, the plot follows the young woman Akane Tsunemori. She is introduced as a novice Inspector assigned to Division One of the Public Safety Bureau’s Criminal Investigation Division, in charge of solving crimes with latent criminals, Enforcers.

The series was inspired by several live-action films. Chief director Katsuyuki Motohiro aimed to explore psychological themes in society’s youth using dystopian storylines.

The first season of the anime garnered critical acclaim in both Japan and the West from critics praising the characters’ roles and interactions set within the dystopian environment. The animation has also been praised despite issues in latter episodes which required fixing in the DVD volumes of the series.

In 2019, Psycho-Pass: Sinners of the System premiered between January and March.
