Studio Ghibli's latest, The Wind Rises, has been holding the number one spot at the Japanese box office since it opened on 20th July according to Slashfilm. This could be a great indicator of what we can expect when it finally opens in the States or the UK... When will that be? We still have no idea.
-- However! We have learned that the film will have it's English subtitled premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) which will take place in Toronto, Canada from 5th-15th September. Though they have yet to post screening dates for the festival, the official TIFF page for The Wind Rises indicates that the schedule will be released on 20th August, so those of you lucky enough to have passes can pen that into your festivity plans.
Meanwhile for the rest of us, we at least get a new subtitled translated trailer for the film courtesy of both TIFF and Den of Geek.
Now that we finally know the content of the dialogue, how excited are you for the film? Just excited? Or super excited?
This decade-spanning epic from maestro Hayao Miyazaki is his most unique films [sic] to date, inspired by the true stories of Jiro Horikoshi, visionary designer of one the most beautiful airplanes in history—the famed Zero fighter—and the poet Tatsuo Hori, whose verses are brought to life by the vivid animation of Studio Ghibli (Slashfilm).
