Miyazaki’s Latest Has an English Trailer + The Morning Links

08.16.13 5 years ago 10 Comments

Hayao Miyazaki, and all the folks at Studio Ghibli (Jibbly like “Jif peanut butter,” not Gibbly like “GIF” or “Go f*ck yourself if you soft-G”), have consistently dished out some of the greatest films of all time. I’ll admit my bias, since I prefer animation to real life. His latest movie, The Wind Rises, came out a few weeks ago in Japan. But thanks to the nerds at the Toronto International Film Festival and Film School Rejects, we’re finally seeing an English trailer. As the Rejects point out, the trailer doesn’t really make any sense, but that’s not what 4-minute summaries of Miyazaki films or Japan in general are known for. I’ve heard the film is weirdly dark, but hopefully that won’t keep  Disney from giving it a bomb-ass US distribution deal.
