The Wind Rises will finally show in the UK on 9th May! Thanks to The Telegraph, we also have a new trailer just for the occasion. Check it out:
Though there doesn't seem to be anything new in the trailer, it is still wonderfully edited - though that could hardly be difficult, as the film itself is a masterpiece.
According to The Telegraph, there will be screenings in both the American English Dub and the original Japanese with English subtitles, but you'll have to check with your local theatre. The American English Dub is voiced by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Martin Short, Stanley Tucci, Mandy Patinkin, William H. Macey, Werner Herzog, Mae Whitman, Jennifer Grey, Darren Criss, Elijah Wood and Ronan Farrow.
A partially fictionalised biopic, the feature tells the story of Jiro Horikoshi, the aviation engineer responsible for designing the A6M Zero, a deadly fighter aircraft used during the Second World War. His life is combined with that of novelist Tatsuo Hori, Horikoshi’s biographer.
