Japanese Hit ‘Your Name’ Wins China Release

Toho has concluded a deal with Access Bright, a company that localizes Japanese games and animation for the Chinese market, to distribute Makoto Shinkai’s smash-hit feature animation “Your Name” in China.

The film will be released in China on Dec. 2, in both subbed and dubbed versions. The exact number of screens has yet to be decided.

With a total box office of $171 million as of Nov. 7, “Your Name” is the seventh-highest earning film, foreign or domestic, ever released in Japan.
