  • [Theatrical] Millennium Actress

    Widgets Magazine
    With the free U.S. legal streaming news that arrived earlier today, would Paramount Pictures do more with the movie? The movie is also listed @ http://www.paramount.com/theatrical-...amily-animated. The DVD release by DreamWorks has been OOP for some time now. Is home video release (DVD and/or Blu-ray) even be possible in the future?

    After turning her back on the spotlight, a legend is visited by a documentary filmmaker.

    Following up on his highly acclaimed animated psychological thriller Perfect Blue, Satoshi Kon spins this mystery about a documentary filmmaker and a legendary actress. In honor of Gin Ei studios 70th anniversary, a small production house run by Genya Tachibana is selected to make a commemorative documentary. Genya decides to focus his film on actress Chiyoko Fujiwara, a massive star who at the height of her popularity retreated from public life. Accompanied an eager young cameraman, Genya doggedly tracks her down to discover her living a hermit-like life of charmed isolation. He also learns that in spite of her advanced age, she has lost little of her famed charm or elegance. As he interviews her, Genya learns of Chiyoko's troubled past and eventually the reasons for her sudden retirement.

    Could be possible for it to turn up at a company like Twilight Time as it would fit their model nicely and I'm sure at some point they have handled a Paramount film or two. Given they have uploaded it to youtube, it seems unlikely that Paramount are going to do a BD themselves, so I think it's most likely to end up being sublicensed to one of those type of companies.

      The list of companies is pretty small. Ranked from most to least likely.

      1) Olive Films (they have the most active relationship with Paramount right now)
      2) Shout Factory (just launched Shout Select line, does have Paramount stuff in pipeline)
      3) Twilight Time
      4) Kino Lorber Studio Classics
      5) The Criterion Collection (they haven't released anything from Paramount since early 2015)

        I really do hope that this leads to a BD release for the film. It's an absolutely brilliant work.

          Even if it's the least likely, I would kill for a Criterion edition of Millennium Actress or of any Satoshi Kon film for that matter.

            I'm hoping that this leads to a BD release somewhere down the line. I have seen this before, but for those who haven't it's quite an incredible film.

                    Great to see that this is getting a new dub seeing that the existing one was dubbed in the UK many years ago, which goes to show how appreciated having a new dub is. And of course, it's getting a digital remaster to go along with it.

                        Can't wait to see this in theaters, especially dubbed for the first time. We get pretty much all Fathom Events, so I'm pretty sure I don't have to worry about it. My only question is whether to watch both languages.
