Made in Abyss English-Language Trailer

Anime “Made in Abyss” Gets First English-Language Trailer

Fanboys across the country have yet another reason to be glued to their computer screens today as the first English language trailer for the highly anticipated Made in Abyss: Journey’s Dawn has officially hit the web.

The film, which is based on the manga and original anime series, bears the art direction of prolific creator Osamu Masayama of Studio Ghibli fame.  His name, along with the talents of Masayuki Kojima, has given this project a substantial amount of buzz.  Based on my first look (and my admittedly small level of knowledge on the subject), the film seems, at least visually, to be worthy of the hype.

Made in Abyss tells the story of Riko, an explorer who wishes for nothing more than to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a Cave Raider.  When the deadly Abyss takes the life of her mother, Riko is heartbroken.  But an unusual note gives her hope (and a reason) to push forward and enter the unforgiving place.

The film, which is being presented in partnership with Fathom Events, has a set of screenings coming up - one in English and one subtitled.  Enjoy the trailer below and then head HERE for tickets.


About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
