Anime NYC powered by Crunchyroll and GKIDS Films are proud to present director Makoto Shinkai’s latest film at Anime NYC! WEATHERING WITH YOU’s East Coast Premiere will serve as Anime NYC’s Closing Film on Sunday, November 17. Anime NYC will present the film two months before its theatrical release in January across North America.

Makoto Shinkai is the visionary director behind Your Name, the 2015 worldwide phenomenon that is the second-highest globally-grossing Japanese film of all time and winner of awards across Asia and around the world, including Best Animated Film at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards and Mainichi Film Awards; Grand Prize of Animation Division at the Japan Media Arts Festival; Screenplay of the Year at the Japan Academy Prize; and Best Film at the Crunchyroll Anime Awards.

WEATHERING WITH YOU is Shinkai’s follow up and, continuing the legacy set by Your Name, is already the highest-grossing film of 2019 in Japan; 13th highest-grossing film of all time in Japan, surpassing movies including Toy Story 3, Finding Nemo, and The Wind Rises; and the first film in Japan since Your Name to surpass 10 million tickets sold.

WEATHERING WITH YOU is also Japan’s official submission for the Academy AwardⓇ for Best International Film at the 92nd Academy Awards, the first animation selected for this honor since Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke.

WEATHERING WITH YOU will take place at 3 PM on Sunday, November 17 inside Anime NYC’s Special Events Hall, a 2,000+ seat theater home to all of Anime NYC’s most esteemed events. An Anime NYC weekend or Sunday badge will be required, but there is no additional cost to attend the WEATHERING WITH YOU East Coast Premiere.

Following Anime NYC, WEATHERING WITH YOU will be released in North American theaters on January 17, 2020, exactly two months later.
