Ghibli Drops First La Tortue Rouge (Red Turtle) Trailer

A first trailer for The Red Turtle - the new Studio Ghibli co-production project directed by Oscar winner Michael Dudok de Wit (Father and Daughter) - has arrived, ahead of the film’s Annecy premiere next month. And, of course, it is a stunning example of what happens when hand-crafted animation artistry meets the careful application of technology.


The Red Turtle follows a man stranded on a desert island, whose attempts to escape are thwarted by a giant red-backed turtle - perhaps for the best. The screenplay is co-written by Dudok de Wit and Pascale Ferran (Lady Chatterley, Bird People). The film is a co-production of Studio Ghibli, Wild Bunch, Why Not Productions, Belvision, Arte France Cinema and CN4 Productions, with Prima Linea overseeing the animation.

Funimation has added another new release to their July 2016 release schedule, and we now have it up on the store site for pre-order:

The Empire of Corpses DVD/BD + UV Combo Set

Release date is set for July 5th.

Synopsis: From the studio that produced Attack on Titan comes a captivating historical action thriller based on an award winning novel by Project Itoh. In an alternate version of 19th century London, the world has been revolutionized by "corpse reanimation technology" creating armies of undead who serve the living as laborers across the globe. In an attempt to revive his dearly departed friend, young medical student John Watson becomes obsessed with replicating the work of Dr. Victor Frankenstein—the legendary corpse engineer whose research produced the only re-animated corpse to possess a soul. But when his illegal experiments put him at odds with the British government, Watson is drafted into a race to find the lost research notes of Victor Frankenstein before the secrets of the human soul fall into the wrong hands.
