On January 15 and 16, there will be a special fan preview screening before the theatrical release on January 17. The anime movie is the latest from director Makoto Shinkai and producer Genki Kawamura, who also worked together on the film Your Name.
Daren Miller, VP of Programming, Business Affairs & Strategy, Fathom Events had this to say about the event:
“What makes our events unique and special is the ability to provide audiences with an exclusive first look at these highly-anticipated films, behind-the-scenes content, animated shorts, and more.”
During the summer of his high school freshman year, Hodaka runs away from his home on the remote island and goes to Tokyo. While there, he discovers how hard it is to live there personally and financially. Hodaka finally finds work writing for a mysterious occult magazine and meets Hina, a bright and strong-willed girl. But there is something different about her. She has powers. Hina has the ability to stop the rain that seems to happen every day and clear the sky.
So far, Weathering With You has been very well received. It is Japan’s official submission for the Academy Award for Best International Film at the 92nd Academy Awards and had its North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).
