From November 23, tickets for the movie Water for Elephants will be available from Cinemart Shinjuku in Tokyo and Cinemart Shinsaibashi in Osaka. On the same day, the Japanese version of the movie flyers, which have been designed differently from the overseas version, will also become available to the public. This movie is set during the period of the Great Depression; and although this is a drama that features a couple affected by this difficult period in history, in Japan it is almost being advertised as a slightly trendy love drama. In Japan, the movie is being released only at independent movie theaters, and for the time being it is only available at the two movie theaters in Tokyo and Osaka. We believe that the movie will be slowly released throughout the country later on and should become available at more movie theaters.
Tagline of the movie：” ぼくはきみの手を握った。禁じられた恋と知ってても― “(I held your hand. Even though I knew ours was a forbidden love―).The title of the movie is “Water for Elephants,” but in Japanese it was renamed, “Lovers’ Parade.”
