New Poster For Miyazaki's The Wind Rises
The animation master's last film is coming to the UK

May 9 is a day both to celebrate and mourn in the UK, because it sees the release of Hayao Miyazaki's The Wind Rises here, but that is said to be the animation master's last film as a director so its release will mark the end of a glorious era. Here's the new UK quad for the Oscar-nominated film to mark the occasion.

The film tells the story of Jiro Horikoshi, voiced in this English dub by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, an aeronautical engineer who dreamed of creating wonderful flying machine. He succeeded with the likes of the Zero fighter used during World War II by Japan - but remained deeply conflicted about the War itself. The film is also a love story of sorts, with Emily Blunt voicing Jiro's wife Naoko.

The Wind Rises was nominated for Best Animated Film at this year's Oscars, and was the highest-grossing film in Japan last year. It will, as we mentioned, be out here on May 9, so be sure to check it out.
