Makoto Shinkai’s latest offering, Your Name, is doing massive business in Japan right now. So much so that it recently surpassed Studio Ghibli’s Howl’s Moving Castle to become the second highest grossing film in Japan.
How well has it gone in Japan? How about to the tune of approximately $US176 million dollars. Releasing in Japan on August 26, industry experts are predicting that it’ll surpass the 20 billion yen threshold soon as it shows no sign of slowing down. If you haven’t seen it, shame on you. Here’s a trailer below and also my review from when I saw it the other day…absolutely breathtaking.
