Eleven Arts (A Silent Voice, Maquia) has acquired the North American rights to Satoshi Kon's 'Millennium Actress' and will be releasing a digitally remastered version theatrically in a 2 day event beginning August 13 with the Japanese language version and then on August 19 with the brand new English dub! A blu-ray release has not been confirmed at this time, but considering they're funding a new dub and it's only going to be in theaters for 2 days, I think it's safe to say one is on the horizon!
When the legendary Ginei Studios shuts down, filmmaker Genya Tachibana and his assistant are tasked with interviewing its reclusive star, Chiyoko Fujiwara, who had retired from the spotlight 30 years prior. As she recounts her career, Genya and his crew are literally pulled into her memories where they witness her chance encounter with a mysterious man on the run from the police. Despite never knowing his name or his face, Chiyoko relentlessly pursues that man in a seamless blend of reality and memory that only Satoshi Kon could deliver.
