Superstar Rajinikanth's much-anticipated Tamil action film Kabaliis slated to hit the screens worldwide on 22 July.
The film will release across 400 screens in the US, with special premieres scheduled to be held a day before the official release.
Distribution company CineGalaxy - which also released Vijay's Theri and Suriya's 24 earlier this year - will handle the release of Kabali in the US.
"It will be the biggest release for a Rajinikanth-starrer in the US. The Tamil as well as Telugu version of the film will release in 400 screens," Madhu Garlapati of CineGalaxy told a news agency, adding that the buzz for the film was unprecedented.
"We opened bookings on Tuesday and in less than two hours tickets were sold out at Towne 3 cinemas, San Jose. The tickets for premieres are priced at $25, and there's huge demand for tickets," she said.
Kabali, directed by Pa Ranjith, also stars Radhika Apte, Kishore, Kalaiarasan, Dinesh, Dhansikaa and Taiwanese actor Winston Chao.
The film will see Rajinikanth play an ageing don who fights for the Tamil community in Malaysia. Kabali will also be dubbed and released in Hindi and Malay.
