Into its fourth weekend, 'Ponyo' still strong, still in northern Ohio theaters


Copyright Disney, Studio Ghibli

As predicted, after last weekend, "Ponyo" became the highest grossing film for Academy Award-winning anime director Hayao Miyazaki in American theaters with a total of $11.6 million.  Raking in an additional $1.9 million, it sank from #12 to #13 in the box office.

"Ponyo" tells the story of a magical goldfish that washes ashore and is discovered by Sousuke, a young boy that lives with his mother in a house on a cliff by the sea.  Miyazaki masterfully spins an imaginative and visually creative tale with something to offer children and adults, anime fans and general audiences alike.

There was a small decline in number of theaters showing "Ponyo" nationwide last weekend, and this will probably continue, but the Cleveland area maintains its number of theaters screening "Ponyo."

Don't miss your chance to see the latest Miyazaki masterpiece on the big screen! The Fall movie season is fast approaching, and "Ponyo" is bound to soon be washed out with the tide.
