Paprika trailer and US release date

Oh baby! Check this out. It's the latest work from Satoshi Kon called Paprika. Remember Perfect Blue? Tokyo Godfathers? Paranoia Agent? No? Well watch this trailer anyway and be amazed by the crazy, weird, generally twisted coolness that the man is capable of.

And listen to (read) this! Paprika is going to be released in the US before its Japanese release. Why? I have no idea. But it'll be out on American DVD October 31. It's not going to be in theatres in Japan until some time next year.

UPDATE: As it turns out, according to the release date was a screw up. In reality there is no US DVD release date yet for this title other than a general 2007. Doh!

The movie will have a sneak preview at the Venice Film Festival which runs August 30-September 9.
