Out This Week: Ponyo, Howl's Moving Castle, Gundam Wing: Endless Waltz and More

This week the UK has just a triple bill of new releases, but one of them is a definite favourite for anime fans of a certain vintage- the movie spin-off of Gundam Wing in the form of Endless Waltz. As always, things are a touch more lively across the pond, with the US getting some DC Comics action and CG family features alongside the usual crop of anime. The most notable release of the week is the new Steelbook editions of Hayao Miyazaki's Ponyo and Howl's Moving Castle. Elsewhere,  horror-themed family film Zombillenium finally gets a release in the States.
