Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV, UK Premier, London, 23rd August 2016Last night at the glamorous Picturehouse Central in the heart of London’s West End, the legendary Sean Bean attended the premiere for his new sci-fi film Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV. The actor (Lord of the Rings, The Martian, Game of Thrones), who is known for dying in many of the films in which he stars, gave many excited fans the chance to see him in person, as he surprised guests with an introduction to the film which was greeted with rapturous applause. Director Takeshi Nozue also attended, and took part in the film’s introduction alongside Bean.

Kingsglaive is the latest instalment in the hugely successful and beloved gaming franchise Final Fantasy, and is available of digital platforms from August 30th, before its release on Blu-ray, DVD and Limited Edition Steelbook on September 30th. Following the film’s release, the highly anticipated video game ‘Final Fantasy: XV’ will be released on November 29th.

Featuring the voice talent ofAaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Lena Headey (Game of Thrones) and Sean Bean (The Lord of the Rings franchise) and new music from Florence + The Machine, KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV finds King Regis (Bean) attempting the save the city of Insomnia from the menacing empire of Niflheim with the help of an elite force of soldiers called the KINGSGLAIVE, led by Nyx Ulric (Aaron Paul).

The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire’s rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.

KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV was directed by Takeshi Nozue from a screenplay by Takashi Hasegawa and was produced by Larry Sparks, Shinji Hashimoto, Kosei Ito and Hajime Tabata.
