Canadian Theatrical News: The Boy and the Beast, Belladonna of Sadness, but no Project Itoh: The Empire of Corpses
I could rant about availability issues that arise when a distributor buys global rights to a library of content despite only operating in five countries. I’ll instead talk about some movies you can (and can’t) check out at your local theatres.
First up is an update on Mamoru Hosoda’s The Boy & The Beast.
“Beast” is a coming-of-age tale about Kyuta, a lonely Japanese boy living in Shibuya and Kumatetsu, a lonesome beast inhabiting Jutengai, an imaginary world. One day, Kyuta forays into the imaginary world and, as he’s looking for his way back, meets Kumatetsu who becomes his guide and friend. That chance encounter leads them to many adventures filled with fantasy and action.
