Makoto Shinkai’s New Film “Your Name” To Receive a UK Theatrical Release from November


Although no official announcement has been made it’s seems that Makoto Shinkai’s animated romance film “Your Name” will receive a UK theatrical release from the 18th November 2016 with both Showcase Cinemas and Vue Cinemas expected to show the film throughout the UK.

Information for the film can easily be found on both websites; with the Showcase Cinemas website even allowing you to pre-book tickets for selective showings across the country with locations including Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham and Glasgow.

Synopsis: Mitsuha and Taki are total strangers living completely different lives. But when Mitsuha makes a wish to leave her mountain town for the bustling city of Tokyo, they become connected in a bizarre way. She dreams she is a boy living in Tokyo while Taki dreams he is a girl from a rural town he’s never visited.

What does their newfound connection mean? And how will it bring them together?

It’s expected that further information regarding Your Name’s cinematic debut will be unveiled in the coming months but for the time being at least it’s nice to see a relatively ‘niche’ film make it’s debut into UK cinemas across the country as opposed to a single showing at Scotland Loves Animation.
