Makoto Shinkai’s Weathering With You had a ton of box office success. And now, it’s getting a new kind of screening in Japan, promising a new kind of experience to those who have watched the film already, or to even those who haven’t. This is because Weathering With You is getting 4DX and MX4D Screenings in Japan! They even released a new key visual for them as well:
The 4DX and MX4D screenings will kick off in select Japanese theatres starting 27th September. Both have unique experiences for viewers, boasting motion seats, scents, wind, and mist. And since this is Weathering With You… expect to get a few splashes of water as well.
When small-town high schooler Hodaka Morishima makes a go at living on his own in Tokyo for the first time, it isn’t long before he finds steady work writing for a local magazine focused on all things strange and supernatural — but the most interesting thing happening in the boy’s life is the unusual weather. Rain’s common enough in the city that at first, no one makes much of the recent torrential showers that never seem to end, but unbeknownst to nearly everyone, a young girl named Hina Amano who has the ability to control the weather walks among them.
