Makoto Shinkai’s latest hit is still hitting the high numbers, and hitting fans in the feels.
Your Name, the latest film from anime director Makoto Shinkai, has gone on to delight movie-goers since its release on August 26, continuing to remain at the top of the Japanese box office. It has sold over 10,000,000 tickets and has grossed over 13.8 billion yen (US$132 million) in the past seven weeks.
And it doesn’t seem to be slowing down.
With great reception at BFI London Film Festival, where it was nominated for “Best Film”, and at the Busan International Film Festival in Korea, the film seems ready to touch the rest of the world with its magic. But it is still wowing fans in Japan, particularly with the release of the latest visual promotion, featuring a stunning scene from the film.
