Full Trailer For Studio Ghibli's KOKURIKO-ZAKA KARA!
Studio Ghibli's new film KOKURIKO-ZAKA KARA opened in Japan on July 16th, the same day as the two new POKEMON films (released simultaneously). If you count the two POKEMON movies as one, which some Japanese websites have done, KOKURIKO-ZAKA KARA took second spot at the box office. Of course, this may not reflect much about the quality of KOKURIKO-ZAKA KARA itself, because it is up against 2 films after all, and as we all know, not all great films open (or finish) with big admission numbers.
Directed by the great man Hayao Miyazaki's son Goro, who seems to be constantly having disagreements with his father (Goro has even appeared on Japanese TV talking about this), KOKURIKO-ZAKA KARA is the follow-up to his disappointing directorial debut TALES FROM EARTHSEA.
Synopsis (via IMDb): A group of Yokohama teens look to save their school's clubhouse from the wrecking ball in preparations for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.
The full trailer has just been released, and shows more pretty footage and again the beautiful theme song.
