Subtitled Trailer for Miyazaki's THE WIND RISES!
Hey guys! Horrorella here...
Miyazaki's latest film has held the number one spot in Japan for the past four weeks. We've posted this trailer before, but now a subtitled version has been released (thanks to the Toronto International Film Festival, where the film will make its state-side debut next month).
THE WIND RISES will tell the story of Jiro Horikoshi, the engineer who developed the Mitsubishi A6M Zero during World War II. While the film is doing very well in Japan, it (along with an accompanying essay penned by Miyazaki) is also generating a fair share of controversy, as the film carries an anti-war message, and Miyazaki has vocally opposed proposed constitutional amendments that would reinstate Japan's military force and place the Emperor as the Head of State. You can check out a rundown of the surrounding controversy over at The Dissolve. It's interesting stuff.
I don't know about you, but the more I watch this trailer, the more excited I get about seeing the finished film. Miyazaki's movies are always special, but this one seems to carry more weight. Miyazaki has stated, “One day, I heard that Horikoshi had once murmured, ‘All I wanted to do was to make something beautiful.’ And then I knew I’d found my subject.”
