The Boy and His Beast

STUDIO CANAL have announced that Mamoru Hosoda’s feature-length-animated film The Boy and the Beast will receive a limited run in cinemas next month with a selection of screening locations already confirmed.

As it stands the film will be shown at selective Picture House cinemas across the UK from the 10th July 2017, with locations listed below:

  • Picturehouse Central (London) at 9 p.m.
  • Hackney Picturehouse (London) at 8.45 p.m.
  • Crouch End Picturehouse (London) ay 9 p.m.
  • Liverpool Picturehouse at FACT at 6.30 p.m.
  • York City Screen Picturehouse at 8.30 p.m.

It’s currently unclear if other cinema venues, such as VUE, Cineworld and Independent cinemas, will show the film; but those wishing to see The Boy and the Beast on the big screen will be able to see it from the cinemas listed above.

Synopsis:  When Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts, he’s taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who’s been searching for the perfect apprentice. Despite their constant bickering, Kyuta and Kumatetsu begin training together and slowly form a bond as surrogate father and son. But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely pair will be put to the ultimate test—a final showdown that will only be won if the two can finally work together using all of their combined strength and courage.

Originally The Beat and the Beast was expected to be released on DVD and Blu-ray lastt year (if not earlier) but alas the film will now receive a cinema release before its UK Home Video release.
