According to Variety news, Sony Pictures acquired the distribution rights of the anime movie "The Sky Crawlers" in US, Canada, Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand. This deal was reportedly made in the Toronto International Film Festival being currently held from Sep 4th to 13th.
The Sky Crawlers is a new movie directed by Oshii Mamoru and won the Digital Award of Venice Future Film Festival. Warner Bros. participated in the production of the movie, but Sony's experience with distributing anime-fan oriented titles in a limited number of theaters might bring about this deal.
The schedule of its premiere has not been announced yet.

I'm looking forward to this movie. If it gets a limited release I hope I'll be able to see it in theaters.

Didn't Warner Bros. distribute it in Japan, though? Well, since it's licensed so quickly, I hope we can see it in U.S. theatres very soon. I am highly anticipating this movie.

Hmm, not interested, don't care for military based anime that much, especially when there's no comedy in it.

Edit: Will someone please tell me what happened to the post I made after this one? It wasn't considered spam was it?

Great news for the US, Canada, Latin America, Australia, and even New Zealand because I've heard great things about this movie and I've listened to the awesome soundtrack. Shame that Brits like me will only have the downloads available (-_-)...
