…well, in Japan at least. No idea when it’ll make it’s way to the US or Europe, but it was announced this week that Ponyo on a Cliff by a Sea will hit Japanese cinemas on July 19th.

Lucky buggers. All we’ve got to look forward to summer blockbuster wise this year are the rather tepid looking Iron Man and the it-probably-should-never-be-made Indiana Jones 4. Well, I guess Speed Racer might be good. But with my two favourite directors, Oshii and Miyazaki, releasing big films, that late summer Tokyo trip is looking like an increasingly good idea. I wouldn’t be able to understand either of them of course, but that didn’t stop my enjoying My Neighbour Totoro or Innocence the first times I saw them.
