Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo gets a trailer...

This looks oddly like a distillation of DC Comic's Aquaman. I'm assuming there's more to this, but this looks like visually gorgeous fun regardless. Spirited Away and Princess Mononokeke are undisputed masterpieces, so Miyazaki's earned the benefit of the doubt. The English-dubbed version will be released by Disney on August 14th. It actually closes the Los Angeles Film Festival, so we should be hearing some official word pretty soon. Although it's getting a decent US release (Disney apparently handles overseas distribution as well), it's already racked up $182 million worldwide.
