Post by gaastra » September 28th, 2020, 9:23 pm

Wow so one new movie is coming to the movies next month. Neat thing is they brought back some of the classic american voice artists for the english dub!


A lupin film getting a big screen release in america that's not the studio ghibili film! Crazy!

Coming October 18 to theatres.

Coming to Blu-ray from Shout! on Jan 12, after a December digital release. Steelbook and regular flavors with booklet and original Japanese and English dubs!

Along with the infinitely entertaining Gambit (check it out!) from Kino, this is my first buy for 2021!

Awesome! Here's a look at the Blu and SteelBook covers:

If you pre-order from Shout Factory you'll receive an exclusive lithograph. Pretty sweet.

Here’s one where I might have gone for the steel, but it’s pretty underwhelming, for me at least. Too cluttered, and with characters of all sizes and perspectives all over the place (yeah, I know it’s based off a poster). And what the heck is going on with Lupin from his tie-clip down? Still, loving the Marlon Brando lookielike at the top! ;)

Hopefully the standard Blu will get a slipcover. That’ll be my bag, baby! :)

A current anime film that's not a DBZ Funimation/Fathom release? Crazy, but not unexpected!
(Usually we get the core-series, or the current artsies like "Your Name".)

The quick rush to Blu makes the theatrical release more "billboard" to promote it and hope for a Best Animated slot, but I'd rather have a shot at seeing them on the bigscreen anyway.
That's how I first saw Castle of Cagliostro, back in the Streamline Pictures days...

I love the Steelbook image at first glance, but it is really busy, and the foreshortening on Lupin's leg is just weird. Not wrong, necessarily, but weird. The standard disc will defintitely have a slip, as all GKIDs titles do initialy. Shout Factory guarantees slips for three months after release, then while supplies last.

"You are the renowned Lupin the 3rd after all" Wowie does that sound like Veronica Taylor! Checked and unfortunately she's not listed. Ah well.

Box office numbers are out for lupin in america and they are slow over our hero and others. Virus and closed movies i'm sure didn't help.

Still with all that it did make $126,703 in america. Didn't make the top 5 at all i'm sorry to say.
