The Tokyo International Film Festival opens on Thursday with its focus heavily on Japanese animated movies and with cult superhero "Ultraman" set to swoosh down the red carpet with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The 27th edition of TIFF, which runs until October 31, will showcase the works of director Hideaki Anno, widely considered the natural successor to Oscar-winning anime master Hayao Miyazaki and celebrated in his own right after his sci-fi series "Evangelion" became a nationwide smash in the 1990s. Among the movies to be screened on Thursday's opening night are the animated superhero comedy "Big Hero 6", about the crime-fighting adventures of a Japanese boy and his robot, which Disney hopes will be a Christmas hit. Guests include gothic filmmaker Tim Burton while "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn is among a panel of six judges for the Tokyo Grand Prix, which offers a prize of $50,000 for best film.
