Default Tokyo Godfathers Coming on Blu-ray 2020 via GKIDS

GKIDS just announced this is coming out in 2020 with a new 4K restoration. First Perfect Blue, then Millennium Actress, now this. Good time to be a Satoshi Kon fan.

If it’s DNR’d like the “remasters” of Perfect Blue and Millennium Actress, then no thanks. That said, a North American release is very nice, and although I don’t like dubs, having one gives it more exposure, so that’s good as well.

I have yet to see it, but I am going to watch it this Christmas as I discover about this movie a week ago. I heard it was really good.

The current transfer is pretty terrible, but mostly because of the early digital print-to-film technology used to make the negative. Hoping this will be better. With new digital scanners and color correction, it might at least be less washed out looking. The UHD BD of Ghost in the Shell proves it's possible.

Is the Millennium Actress DNR'd on top of the Japanese master, r are you just eferring to the base DNR'd state that Gkids ported over?

It's hard to imagine this new remaster looking worse than the ridiculously windowboxed and soft-looking JP BD release, but I hope the DNR isn't too destructive.

No- the remaster was DNR’d from the beginning.

This probably means I will be triple-dipping before getting around to actually watch the movie. ^^

Ah ok, you had me worried it had received another application of DNR for a second there!

Default Tokyo Godfathers in theaters March 8th and 11th.


Quote:
Tokyo Godfathers,the acclaimed holiday classic from master director Satoshi Kon (Paprika, Perfect Blue), returns to theaters in a brand-new digital restoration.

On Christmas Eve, three homeless companions stumble upon a baby girl in a garbage heap. They name her Kiyoko, and vow to care for her as they track down her family. Haunted by memories of their own broken pasts and pursued by a cast of shadowy characters from Tokyo’s nightlife, Hana, Gin and Miyuki overcome their differences and learn to trust one another as a new, makeshift family. With the New Year fast approaching, the mystery behind baby Kiyoko deepens, and these unlikely heroes discover the surprising – and sometimes miraculous – connections that have brought them all together.

Co-written by Keiko Nobumoto (Cowboy Bebop) and featuring a whimsical score by Keiichi Suzuki, Tokyo Godfathersis a masterpiece by turns heartfelt, hilarious and highly original, a tale of hope and redemption in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds.
March 9th is a subbed showing and March 11th is a dubbed showing.

So excited for this.

Ah, so they'll market it as an acclaimed holiday classic, but are not actually showing it anywhere near that holiday? Figure out the logic there!

Obviously great news for you americans though, probably won't be making it to UK theatres.

Definitely going to try to catch this in theaters. I agree Shingster, would've been nice if they released this during Christmas time.
