Trailer: The Wind Rises

Celebrated Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki is back with his first film in 5 years, The Wind Rises, a historical piece that looks to be a departure from his beloved fantasy-oriented works like Spirited Away and How's Moving Castle. An avid plane enthusiast, Miyazaki was inspired to make this film by the real-life stories of WWII aircraft engineer Jiro Horikoshi. The footage in this subtitled trailer released by the Toronto International Film Festival suggests Miyazaki in "heavier" mode, but it's as beautiful a production as you'd expect from Studio Ghibli. No NZ release date announced yet -- would be great if NZIFF's Autumn Events picked it up for a screening at the Civic!
