The animated movie, "Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea" from anime filmmakerHayao Miyazaki is well on its way to becoming the most successful box office film in the country of Japan.
Now passing over $109 million (12 billion yen), the film is on track to surpass current champ "Spirited Away," also from Miyazaki. First Ponyo must overcome the third and second place animated films "Howl's Moving Castle" and "Princess Mononoke," and that seems very likely to occur by as early as this upcoming weekend.
"Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea" is very popular with entire families coming together to view the movie.
