Shout! Factory and Funimation Films announced on Wednesday that they are partnering to release Sunao Katabuchi‘s In This Corner of the World film in United States theaters. The movie is set to screen in the U.S. on August 11.
The companies describe the film:
The award-winning story of IN THIS CORNER OF THE WORLD follows a young lady named Suzu Urano, who in 1944 moves to the small town of Kure in Hiroshima to live with her husband’s family. Suzu’s life is thrown into chaos when her town is bombed during World War II. Her perseverance and courage underpin this heart-warming and inspirational tale of the everyday challenges faced by the Japanese in the midst of a violent, war-torn country. This beautiful yet poignant tale shows that even in the face of adversity and loss, people can come together and rebuild their lives.
Shout! Factory and London-based distributor Animatsu Entertainment previously announced plans to distribute the film in the United States and Canada. Shout! Factory has licensed the theatrical, video on demand, digital, broadcast, and home video rights from Animatsu Entertainment, which holds the global rights
