Only 168 days to go. As a side note, I want to say that "orated" was a typo, but afer my error on the "Hikago" thing, I'm not exactly sure.

It's good in the sense that it isn't being dumped during a lame month-unless they have to compete with Ring 2-but it sucks, because I was hoping for at least a sneak preview in L.A. before the end of the year. Oh well, there's still time...

Between Steamboy, A Tree of Palme, and My Beautiful Girl Mari, the first quarter of 2005 is shaping up to be a very good one for theatrical animation. Rock. Hopefully Barbacoa and Howl's Moving Castle will make it over here quickly.

Only in Gatsu world is March somehow not the dreaded pre-summer doldrum where the studio dumps movies it knows won't make a dime.

It starts in early January and runs until around April. Then it goes from late August to mid October. March is considered one of those months.

Gatsu's not completely off-base. January is the true dumping month (excluding the wide releases of some of the late-season Oscar hopefuls that opened in limited release in December), February through the earlier part of April are increasingly considered to be good months for the studios to release films that don't quite have summer potential but could still be sleeper hits.

To name just a few successful films from recent years, the first Matrix was released in March, as was Blade II, David Fincher's Panic Room, the first Resident Evil, and the titular pseudo-remake of Dawn of the Dead.

They showed Steamboy in Finland during the Love&Anarchy Film Festival some two months back.

I'd say it's worth seeing, though in the end, in my opinion, it goes somewhere in the mediocre level of anime movies.
