IT’S HAPPENING FOLKS! Makoto Shinkai’s highly-anticipated feature anime film, Weathering With You (Tenki No Ko), finally has a release date in the Philippines! SM Cinemas recently listed the movie on its official website, and the page showed that Weathering With You will be released in the PH on August 21, 2019. Though around two weeks after, the film’s distributor Pioneer Films announced that the movie will instead screen in the PH on August 28, 2019.
Weathering With You is the sixth anime feature film by director Makoto Shinkai, and it’s his next movie following the global hit, Your Name. Weathering With You’s story is described as:
The summer of his high school freshman year, Hokoda runs away from his remote island home to Tokyo, and quickly finds himself pushed to his financial and personal limits. The weather is unusually gloomy and rainy every day, as if to suggest his future. He lives his days in isolation, but finally finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. Then one day, Hokoda meets Hina on a busy street corner. This bright and strongwilled girl possesses a strange and wonderful ability: the power to stop the rain and clear the sky…
Weathering With You was released in Japan last July 16, and it earned over JPY 1.6 billion (around USD $15.2 million) in its first three days, breaking Your Name’s first three-days record of JPY 1.2 billion.
