"This past weekend, the latest film from Studio Ghibli and Isao Takahata arrived in Japanese theaters. The Tale of Princess Kaguya was the director's long awaited return, as he had not had a film release in nearly 15 years. It opened to much success, as it topped the box office with a weekend pull of about ¥284 million (roughly $2.8 million USD). Not bad!"
