Kamen Rider Saber: The Phoenix Swordsman and the Book of Ruin (劇場短編 仮面ライダーセイバー[聖刃]不死鳥の剣士と破滅の書 Gekijō-tanpen Kamen Raidā Seibā Fushichou no Kenshi to Hametsu no Hon) is a Japanese superhero film that serves as the Winter Film adaptation of Kamen Rider Saber, double-billed with Kamen Rider Zero-One: REAL×TIME and replacing Mashin Sentai Kiramager: The MovieIcon-crosswiki.png, that was pushed into the Spring of 2021. The film's post-credit scene features an early-bird appearance of both Master Logos and the Southern Base ahead of their in-series debuts.

Production

In October 2020, Kamen Rider Saber: The Movie was announced to premiere double-billed with Kamen Rider Zero-One: The Movie, in lieu of both Mashin Sentai Kiramager: The MovieIcon-crosswiki.png and a Movie War crossover. In the same month, plot details, production images, and special cast members regarding Kamen Rider Saber: The Movie were revealed. In November, the film's official title was revealed to be Kamen Rider Saber: The Phoenix Swordsman and the Book of Ruin, promoted alongside Zero-One's film in the marketing campaign titled Kamen Rider Splendid Double-Feature (仮面ライダー 超豪華2本立て Kamen Raidā Chōgōkai ni-hondate).

Ticket pre-sales began on November 8, 2020, with online purchases including digital downloads of episodes of both Zero-One's anime and Saber's anime. Both films premiered side-to-side in Japanese theaters on December 18, 2020.

  • This is the first Winter Film to not serve as a crossover with the previous season, but rather a double-billed film releasing alongside the aforementioned season's theatrical movie.
    • Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Zero-One's summer movie was pushed to December as a result, as well being double-billed with Saber's winter movie instead, with Kiramager's Summer Film being pushed to February 2021.
