Patema Inverted to North American theaters


GKids meets upside down kids

Yasuhiro Yoshiura's latest movie, Patema Inverted, is about a gravity experiment that went really wrong. It's also about a couple kids who met and had an adventure because one fell "up" from the sky. The UK and Germany are already getting some great news about seeing Patema Inverted, and now so does North American fans of Yoshiura's creations. There is currently no date associated with the release, but the theatrical run will happen after 2013.

Most notable for Time of Eve, Yoshiura has created a bunch of quirky science fiction films and OVAs while eyeing the greater English-language audience, dating all the way back to Mizu no Kotoba and Pale Cocoon. When it comes to Patema Inverted, it isn't so much a question of will we get his latest work locally, but when. With GKids being the distributor, hopefully this also means the general film festival circuit will get a chance preview in the coming year, especially that great one that they run in NYC every year.
