It’s just in! Makoto Shinkai’s Weathering With You gets a PH release date via SM Cinema!
In case you missed it, ‘Weathering With You‘ got its official release date in Philippine cinemas. Philippine theater chain SM Cinema listed the ‘Weather With You’ screening date on August 21, 2019, nationwide.
The screening date has been officially made after SM Cinema’s announcement. Not to mention, Pioneer Films, the official distributor of the movie confirmed the Philippine screening dates as well.
‘Weathering With You ‘will be Makoto Shinkai’s sixth anime feature film. After the success of his global hit, ‘Your Name‘ or ‘Kimi No Na Wa’, ‘Weathering With You’ expects the same reception from the global audience.
It follows the story of a high school freshman named Hokoda during summer. He runs away from his remote home to Tokyo, in hopes to find something fulfilling in his life. However, he finds himself burdened by his financial limits. He eventually finds work as a writer for a mysterious occult magazine. And one day, Hokoda meets Hina. His life turns around as he learns that the bright and strongwilled girl Hina possesses a supernatural power. The power to stop the rain and clear the sky.
‘Weathering With You’ opened in Japanese cinemas last July 19. And in just 3 days, it was able to sell out 1,159,020 tickets, earning about PHP 778.31 million. Which was 30% more than what Makoto Shinkai’s ‘Your Name’ earned during its opening week back in 2016.
On a side note, Japanese rock band RADWIMPS announced that the official full soundtrack of the anime film is now available in all digital platforms. That includes Spotify and Apple Music.
