Lost in Translation promotional mini booklet

Postby osullic » Thu Feb 23, 2012 7:52 pm

I have a small collection of Lost in Translation chirashi/flyers etc. (For anyone not familiar with chirashi, they are mini movie posters quite common in Japan that are a popular collectible item.)

I was looking at the Lost in Translation items for sale on a site that sells mostly chirashi here:
http://www.jmshop.net/drama2.html

There's a mini booklet there, listed as sold out, that I've never seen anywhere else. I thought maybe it was just an "insert" from a DVD box, but I emailed the site owner and he thinks it was distributed at Japanese cinemas.

I'm just wondering if anyone can identify it. I'm really curious about it.

Thanks!

I can't remember specifics, but I do remember a chirashi being discussed on here a few years back on here that was produced for early screenings in Japan.

Ha! I've been looking for that one for ages as well but with no luck. :(

It's the same picture as the DVD cover for Japan, so I wonder if it may be a promotional booklet forthat release instead?

If the one on that site is the same thing then I have that one! I bought it on eBay from someone in the UK. I think I paid between $10 and $20 with shipping. I've been meaning to scan it in and add it to the site.

Hey Bob_san,

If you could upload it to the site, that would be great. Maybe some of the writing on the poster will give us a clue as to wheather it was for the cinema release or the DVD release. Might be able to track down another one then!

Cheers

Mike

Not sure if anyone still wants this but I think I bought the chirashi that you are talking about in 2010. The description is called

"LOST IN TRANSLATION(2003)(six pages mini booklet)", I think it is now since gone from that site?

Anyways, I uploaded a scan of the booklet for those curious. It seems like the layout is similar to the Japanese DVD booklet but aside from the location map, they are quite different.

Sorry for the bad quality scan but hope that helps someone.

Hey SuperDuper, thanks so much for the scan! It looks really cool.

I might get in touch with a couple of websites and see if they can use this to track one down.

Cheers!

I'm pretty sure that's the booklet from the Japanese DVD. Mine looks the same.

onlyshallow, you are right! Haha I am an idiot! I went back and checked and I scanned in the DVD insert actually in my previous post. Probably mixed them up when I took them both out to compare. Here is what the booklet should be..
