Check out this splended new poster and trailer for the brand new animation from the legendary Studio Ghibli: From Up On Poppy Hill – in cinemas August 2nd. Featuring the voice talents of Gillian Anderson, Jamie Lee Curtis, Anton Yelchin and Christina Hendricks, the release coincides with StudioCanal’s on-going plan to release the entire Ghibli back catalogue in glorious high definition for the first time in the UK.

Set in Yokohama in the year 1963, “From Up On Poppy Hill” is a love story whose main characters are the high school students who were to become the first generation of a new Japan. As the country begins to pick itself up from the devastation of the Second World War, the new generation struggles with moving forward into a prosperous future while trying not to lose the things from the past that make them who they are. The film’s rich and vibrant animation captures the entrancing beauty of the Yokohama harbor setting and lush surrounding hillsides and, with a soundtrack that draws from the finest music of the time, perfectly captures the thrills of young romance and the hope of a new dawn.

I love practical effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Yakuza Zero and Mafia III.
