How can you watch Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero?
You can see Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero exclusively in theatres from August 19. Thankfully, the latest adventure movie featuring Goku and the Z Fighters is getting a worldwide release, meaning if you’re in the US or UK, or further abroad, you should be able to find a cinema screening.
You can pre-order tickets now through the official site. Certain larger chains will have subtitled and dubbed showings available, but this varies from cinema to cinema. Always check your local listings before booking anything!
