    Sanity's already got a listing for Rei now, release date is November 30. They title it as 'When They Cry OVA - Series 1', perhaps implying that Universal/Sony might release the other OVAs Kira and Outbreak somewhere down the line maybe.

            Another listing from NZ's Academy Cinemas confirms that Madman is releasing the film, and there's also a poster too on the website's Coming Soon page

            The poster also points to the website www.blackbutler.com.au which has yet to come online. An official announcement from Madman shouldn't be far off, especially when it's less than a month till the film is in cinemas here.

              I checked to see if MVM's Busou Shinki was listed on Amazon yet and found this.
              The EAN attached is 9346315016208 which comes up as belonging to Hanabee, however the show is not listed on their site or Gryphon's.
              There are two results when searching that EAN on Google:

                Sanity also lists Busou Shinki on their site, credited to Hanabee and with the 16/03/2017 release date.

                They also list Kawai Complex with the same date and also from Hanabee.

                  Worth updating on now since it's been a day past the apparent release date for the film, hard to say what caused it to be delayed (they might've had to wait for the US, Japan pushed it back due to some reason, lack of resources etc.)

                  The Event Cinemas page changed the date to April 6 though looking on the website's Coming Soon page wont show the film immediately unless you search for it on Google. The Academy Cinemas page has been removed entirely (though the poster linked still seems to show as of this post).

                  And while digging, I found a page from the Australian Classification board, rating a 2 minute trailer for the film on January 6, 2017, with Madman listed as the applicant.

                  Presumably rated 'Likely M' so it could be shown in cinemas which so far hasn't happened (at least based of word from any of my Australian sources or myself after seeing Madman's recently screened anime films so far such as YuGiOh). If Event's April date rings true, then I'll bet on the Black Butler trailer being in front of Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale when it screens here on March 9.

                    • Australia's Classification Board lists a 1 minute trailer for SHAFT's Fireworks that was rated on August 16, with Madman as the applicant. (Director is mistakenly listed as Takeshi Kitano when it should be Nobuyuki Takeuchi/Akiyuki Shinbo but I'll chalk that up as a mistake on the board's part).

                      Makes sense this film was likely to be coming since it was promised for worldwide release in 110 countries. We'll likely hear a proper announcement on the film from Madman at their SMASH panel this weekend, 'A LOT' of announcements were teased for then.

                          • Madman's page for upcoming theatrical releases has accidentally listed that they have Fate/Stay Night: Heaven's Feel - 1 Presage Flower, the live action Jojo's Bizarre Adventure and No Game No Life: Zero.

                              Aniplex Invests in Australia's Madman Anime Distribution Company
                              posted on 2018-02-17 07:00 EST

                              CEO Tim Anderson: "We don't expect any changes to Madman's broad strategy, direction"

                              Tim Anderson, President and CEO of Madman Anime Group, has confirmed with ANN that Aniplex Inc. has invested in the company. Madman Entertainment management agreed to issue additional shares in its company on November 15, and provided a minority interest to Aniplex Inc. Anderson told ANN he could not disclose the financial details of the deal.

                              Anderson clarified that Madman's other shareholders continue to hold their shares in the company, and Madman's management remains unchanged.

                              Anderson also told ANN that Aniplex is "highly supportive of Madman's current strategic direction and activities working with a broad range of anime properties and license partners." He added that Aniplex also supports Madman's other newer activities, such as "VOD business (AnimeLab), theatrical activity, and the recent expansion into events including Madman Anime Festival."

                              Anderson also gave this statement regarding possible changes in the company:
                              ...We don't expect any changes to Madman's broad strategy and direction as a result of Aniplex Inc. becoming one of our shareholders. Madman will continue to strive to be the #1 distributor of anime related products and services in Australia and New Zealand.

                              ANN also asked Anderson if Madman's release strategy would change for Aniplex titles to mirror Aniplex USA's release model. "We currently don't anticipate Madman's pricing strategy will change as a result of this," Anderson said, adding "product strategy, dates, package inclusions, extras, etc. are continually evolving here at Madman, as we strive to deliver the best value and results to both our audience and our content partners."
