Forrest Gump and Ghostbusters re-releasing in theaters this September

Forrest Gump is one of my top ten movies of all time. It's probably in the top five too. It's just something I can watch over and over again without fault. Ghostbusters is something I'll watch again for sure, but not nearly a...

The Act of Killing returning to theaters in February

The Act of Killing is a stupendous documentary. It's chilling, gripping, and even slightly humorous. I even liked it enough to put it on my Top 15 of 2013 list, and it's got an Oscar nomination now! It's all with good reason....

This is the End getting re-released in theaters soon

This is the End was the best film of the Summer hands down (Fast & Furious 6 notwithstanding). It brought the biggest surprises, biggest laughs, and most memorable moments (that finale had to be the greatest thing I've se...

New Releases, week of 5/14/13: Big Bad Borg Edition

While most folks will be interested in Silver Linings Playbook today (as it earned a bunch of awards and the like), I'll be trying to find myself a copy of Manborg. We've featured a trailer for the film on the site recently a...

Beasts of the Southern Wild to be re-released this week photo
Beasts of the Southern Wild to be re-released this week
by Liz Rugg

Beasts of the Southern Wild was this year's breakout independent movie, as favorite among the Flixist staff that have seen it, and also probably the longest review we have to date. In the light of the dark horse candidate's four Oscar nominations (Best Movie, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay) Fox Searchlight has decided to re-release the move in theaters beginning this weekend.

Beasts will be re-released on Friday, January 18th in Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Dallas, Phoenix, Miami, Washington DC, New York City and Los Angeles. For showtimes check your local theaters or Fox Searchlight's website. If you haven't seen Beasts yet, it's totally worth catching, especially before the Oscars!

Grave of the Fireflies will return to theaters next year to commemorate its 25th anniversary. This theatrical re-release is thanks to GKIDS, the group also responsible for last year's touring Studio Ghibli retrospective as well as the current Studio Ghibli retrospective in NYC. Grave of the Fireflies was also released on Blu-ray this week.

If you've never seen Grave of the Fireflies before, it's one of Studio Ghibli's undeniable masterpieces. Directed by Isao Takahata and based on the novel of the same name by Akiyuki Nosaka, it tells the story of an orphaned brother and sister trying to survive after Kobe has been firebombed at the end of WWII. It's one of the most heartbreaking movies that I've ever seen; one of those memorable, devastating experiences I won't ever shake.

I've always been curious about the live-action versions of Grave of the Fireflies from 2005 and 2008. Would they stack up well against the animated film? I may have to watch all three at some point -- one a day for three days -- and spend the rest of that week melancholy out of my mind.

No date has been set yet for the film's theatrical run, but by all accounts it looks like GKIDS is doing another touring Ghibli retrospective which will allow you to see the movie on the big screen. Readers in the New York area can catch Grave of the Fireflies at the Studio Ghibli retrospective at the IFC Center from December 7th to December 18th.
