Miyazaki's LUPIN THE 3RD THE CASTLE OF CAGLIOSTRO Heads to U.S. Theaters

It only took 38 years, but Miyazaki Hayao's Rupan sansei: Kariosutoro no shiro, also known as Lupin the 3rd: The Castle of Cagliostro, is heading to U.S. theaters.

Miyazaki had about eight years of experience as an animator when he become involved with the television series Lupin the Third Part 1 in 1971. Working with Takahata Isao, Miyakazi contributed to the development of the series into something of a groundbreaker, following a gentleman thief and his adventures.

The Castle of Cagliostro was a followup to The Mystery of Mamo and gave Miyazaki the opportunity to make his feature debut. The film got some kind of limited U.S. theatrical release in 1991, ahead of its release on home video, which is how I first saw it.

According to an official statement, the film will make its nationwide theatrical debut "for two nights only on Thursday, September 14 (English dubbed) and Tuesday, September 19 (English subtitled) at 7:00 p.m. local time (both days), from Fathom Events, ELEVEN ARTS Anime Studio, and TMS Entertainment."

Go to Fathom Events for more information and to purchase tickets when they go on sale on August 18.

Is this a proper release or are they just going to toss up a DVD copy on the large screen (like Fathom LOVES to do...)

Good question; I've never attended a Fathom event. Is that your experience, though, that they screen DVDs?

A 35mm print would be cool but I'd image they'd just throw up a digital projection of the Blue Ray xD

I wonder if this will happen in Canada, too... since the "Ghibli Fest" is happening in the US and Canada but there's no evidence online that it's happening outside of the states

late reply but yes I have seen some events in my area (Seattle) where they have shown pretty lack luster (dvd) prints of films where its pretty blown out.

Peter MartinJuly 17, 2017 4:07 PM

That's a shame, but thanks for sharing your experience.

For anyone who hasn't seen it, this film is incredible.

Note that when interviewed about RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, George Lucas and Steven Spielberg mentioned LUPIN III: CASTLE OF CAGLIOSTRO as an influence for several of the action sequences. Spielberg even said the anime was "one of the ten best action-adventure films ever made".
