The distributor Third Window Films will release Sion Sono's manga-based live-action film Himzu (pictured) and Yuya Ishii's live-action comedy film Mitsuko Delivers next year.
The U.K. premiere of Himizu is scheduled to take place during the Terracotta Far East Film Festival 2012 from April 12-15, followed by a U.K. theatrical run beginning in late April, while Mitsuko Delivers is tentatively scheduled for theatrical release in the U.K. in mid-May.
Himizu follows the story of the teenaged boy Yūichi Sumida who seeks a normal life but falls into darkness after a certain incident. Mitsuko Deilviers centers on a woman who makes a new life for herself after becoming broke and friendless in her ninth month of pregnancy.
