So far we’ve gotten a making-of featurette and a few promotional clips, but now the real theatrical trailer is finally out for Hirokazu Kore-eda’s Air Doll. Asmik Ace will be releasing this film in Japan later this year. Fortissimo Films is handling international sales.

Plot: A life-size air doll (Doona Bae) is kept in the retro apartment of Hideo (Itsuji Itao), but over time she grows a heart of her own. One day she cheerfully fixes up her outfit and decides to enjoy a walk outside alone. She eventually meets a video store clerk named Junichi (Arata Iura) and secretly falls in love. She hatches a plan to get a part-time job in the store alongside him, but an unexpected turn of events throws her fragile existence into turmoil. Through her subsequent journey of self-discovery she explores what it really means to be human.
