Do you have something to do this week? If you are in Italy, check your schedule and find a free evening! On 14-15-16 October, Weathering with You, the latest film by Makoto Shinkai, author and director of the acclaimed Your Name, arrives in Italian movie theatres. Here is the plot and trailer of the exciting new work by a master of Japanese animation.
Back in 1992, we still were children when we left the movie theatre with heart-eyes after watching Aladdin for the first time. Almost 30 years have passed (we feel old just writing it) and in this period we have seen the animated movie so many times that we know every scene by heart… and we are certain that we are not alone! Now Disney brings us back to Agrabah, this time with protagonists in the flesh: are Arabian nights still as magical as they once were?
Let’s start the year in the best way with a new animated film, one of those we like! In fact, since January 1st, Ralph Breaks the Internet is in all Italian theatres. The new Disney movie takes us back to the crazy world of video games and sends us, with its protagonists, on the internet. How will Ralph and Vanellope cope with social networks, algorithms and search engines?
A new season of anime opens at the movies! For the 7th year, Nexo Digital and Dynit bring some of the most successful Japanese animated feature films to Italian theatres. This year the chosen movies are very recent successes, which will surely make the joy of the Japanese animation fans (and ours). Here are the three films that we will soon see in our cinemas.
Even though we’ve always been Disney fans, there was a period of our lives when we moved away from the world of Mickey and Co. and this period includes 2004, the year in which The Incredibles came out in theatres. In the end, we saw the first chapter of the adventures of the family of superheroes and we also liked it, but it did not stay in our heart (unlike other films of the period, that we watched at a later time). How was Incredibles 2, in theatres in Italy since September 19th?
In these last days of spring, Japanese animation returns to Italian movie theatres! From June 14 to 20, in fact, Mary and the Witch’s Flower, the first work of Studio Ponoc, “heir” of the most famous Studio Ghibli, will arrive on the silver screens. The movie, distributed in Italy by Lucky Red, is based on the novel The little broomstick, by Mary Stewart, and it is an exciting story of friendship and magic set between the English countryside and a school for magicians and witches (no, Harry Potter has nothing to do with it).
Christmas means lunches and dinners with family, presents to unwrap, but also the new Disney/Pixar movie opening in theatres! This year it’s the turn of Coco, a kaleidoscopic adventure that brings us in the distant Mexico and the far more distant world of the dead. The movie is out in Italian cinemas on December 28th, just in time to relax (and empty the stomach) waiting for New Year’s Eve: let’s talk a bit about it.
Ready for a new appointment with anime on the big screen? Next week, in Italy it will be the turn of A silent voice, directed by Naoko Yamada (one of the few Japanese female directors) and one of the biggest success of last year in Japan. The movie arrives in Italy thanks to Nexo and Dynit and it will be in Italian theatres on October 24th and 25th, but we went ahead and we talk about it a bit earlier.
In September, it’s not just back to school or work, but also Italian anime season at the movies begins again! The first animated feature coming to cinemas on September 19th and 20th is In this corner of the world, the emotional movie by Sunao Katabuchi, in our theatres thanks to Nexo Digital and Dynit. Here’s why you should watch it!
If you liked Your Name, the movie by Makoto Shinkai we talked you about last January, then you should not miss another movie by the same director, out in Italy for a special event scheduled for 11st and 12nd of April! Thanks to Nexo Digital, in fact, we can watch in Italian theatres The Place Promised in Our Early Days, the first full feature film written and directed by Makoto Shinkai. We watched it: here’s why you should do it as well!
