Studio Ghibli double bill event: choose the second film!

News Den Of Geek 25 Apr 2014 - 09:00

We're putting on a double bill of Studio Ghibli's The Wind Rises and one other Ghibli film - and we need your votes!

If you cast your mind back earlier in the year, we started courting your views for a special Studio Ghibli screening night. The idea was that you'd get to choose which film we put back on the big screen at the end of it all. Lots of you expressed interested.

So many, in fact, that things have moved on a little. Because on Thursday 8th May in London, we're having a very special Studio Ghibli evening. Not only will we screen the Ghibli film that is chosen in our vote, but we will follow it up with a special screening of Hayao Miyazaki's final film, The Wind Rises, which is released in the UK the day after.

Before we confirm the screening ticket details then, we need your votes for what the first film is going to be. And we have a shortlist for you to pick from! The list is:

• Spirited Away
• Princess Mononoke
• Howl’s Moving Castle
• My Neighbour Totoro
• Grave of the Fireflies

To vote, either leave your choice in the comments below, or Tweet us @denofgeek, with the hashtag #Ghibli, and your choice of movie. As an added bonus, we'll pick one of the Tweeters to win a Studio Ghibli Blu-ray too.

Voting closes on April 28th, and we'll have more details of the screening next week!

I would love to see Grave of the Fireflies followed by the Wind Rises. Seeing a juxtaposition of the 2 sides of war would be interesting at the very least

Argh! Tough choice, are you sure it can only be one? ;)

Grave of Fireflies for me

Grave of the Fireflies for me, the two seems to have a similar backdrop but different themses. Plus they are the two "realistic" ones.
Sidebar, any word on a Spirited Away Blu-Ray on the horizon? Very odd you can get other lesser known Ghibli films on that format but not the most well know.

My Neighbour Totoro! :-)

Howl's Moving Castle!

My Neighbour Totoro!!!!

Howl's, everythime!!

Spirited away

The Tokyo Airlines dub of Laputa. Disney ruined it with their embellished musical score. What was a natural and beautiful dawn playing of a trumpet on top of Pazu's house gets ruined by the addition of an orchestra.

Howl's Moving Castle

My Neighbour Totoro~ =)
