"Ponyo" to Debut on 800 Screens in US

Producer Frank Marshall has stated on his Twitter account that Ponyo, the latest movie from Studio Ghibli’s Hayao Miyazaki, will be debuting on 800 screens when it is released on August 14, 2009. This will make it noticeably larger than any prior Miyazaki release in the US — 2002’s Spirited Away was showing on 714 screens at its peak, and many Ghibli releases have been on fewer than 300 for the duration of their theatrical releases. However, the number is also well short of the 3,000-4,000 screens for headline movies such as Disney/Pixar’s Up or DreamWorks’ Monsters vs. Aliens.
