Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group has licensed the rights to distribute The Sky Crawlers, the latest film from Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell, Patlabor), in the United States, Canada, Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand. The film adapts Hiroshi Mori's military romance novels that are set on an alternate-history world. After the film's Japanese opening last month, the Toronto International Film Festival held the North American premiere last Friday. While The Sky Crawlers was shut out of the juried awards at the Venice Film Festival in Italy this past weekend, it did win the Future Film Festival Digital Award during the event.
Thank you to Daniel Zelter for the news tip.
