Filmarks, one of the largest film, drama and anime review services in Japan, will screen two of Mamoru Hosoda’s films that are set in summer — The Girl Who Leapt Through Time (2006) and Summer Wars (2009) — in 104 theaters across Japan for a limited two week run this summer. Ticket prices are 1,600 yen for adults and 1,000 yen for high school students and younger.
The two films will be screened in the “Pre-Ticket (Premium Ticket)” project, which Filmarks have sponsored to meet the requests from movie fans who want to “see the masterpiece on the screen again.”
The Girl Who Leapt Through Time will be screened for two weeks from Friday, July 7 to Thursday, July 20, including the anniversary of “Nice Day” on July 13 when the protagonist Makoto Konno makes her first time leap in the story. The day was also introduced as “Nice Things Find Nice Things Day” in the film.
Meanwhile, Summer Wars will be screened for two weeks from Friday, July 28 to Thursday, August 10, including August 1, the birthday of the great-grandmother Sakae Jinnai in the film. For some additional trivia, the unlock password for Uncle Wabisuke’s smartphone was “0108,” and the film was released in Japan on August 1, 2009.
Theatergoers will also receive a “limited item” on the anniversary date of both films: July 13 for The Girl Who Leapt Through Time and August 1 for Summer Wars.
