Jellyfish Eyes (2013) Movie Image

Japan has churned out movies about kids and the cute creatures they adore. The country’s film industry has also cranked out its fair share of giant monster movies. In order to please those who often wonder why these genres haven’t been combined, writer/director Takashi Murakami is preparing to unleash “Jellyfish Eyes” into theaters next month.

What is “Jellyfish Eyes,” you ask? Well, it’s kind of like a live-action Pokemon movie with CGI elements. Although the trailer starts out cute enough, you’ll soon realize that the kids and their adorable friends/pets will have to contend with some pretty horrific monsters. The embedded trailer makes the movie seem weird, adorable, and oddly compelling.

Check out this synopsis:

An elementary school student named Masashi finds flat cardboard boxes at a home in which he just moved in. A strange creature like jellyfish comes from the cardboard. Masashi names the strange, but cute creature “Kurage Bo” and they become friends. Masashi places Kurage Bo in a bag and takes the creature with him to school his new school. The other students and adults can not see Kurage Bo.

“Jellyfish Eyes” is set to dazzle children and adults with child-like taste in movies on April 26, 2013. You can find the full trailer embedded below. Even if you think the movie looks like garbage, chances are you’ll walk away wanting a miniature CGI creature of your very own.
