Capcom offers a glimpse at Ace Attorney movie, trailer coming soon

Capcom has released the first image from its upcoming Ace Attorney movie adaptation. The sole pic accompanies the launch of a Japanese-language promo site, with a release date set and the promise of a trailer soon. “But it's one image! One measly little picture!” Yes, just one picture of a live-action movie, based on a Capcom game, and looking just fine. Do you realize how long that's taken?

We'll spare you the litany of woeful joypad-to-celluloid translations afforded to every Capcom franchise so far: you're reading a videogames website on the Internet, so you know all about how Jean-Claude Van Damme is no Guile and the Resident Evil movies are poor substitutes. Just enjoy this image of Hiroki Narimiya Objection!-ing up a storm while you wait for the trailer, which will launch Nov 5 ahead of the film's Feb 11 Japanese release. With the international popularity of director Miike Takashi – not to mention Ace Attorney itself – we’d bet English-speaking fans should be assured of a translation not too long after.

    Why not just make it an animated movie?

    I'd imagine its going to be harder to screw this movie up than Street Fighter or Resident Evil. Ace Attorney has a much more espablished plot and its easier to understand what someone would expect from a movie. I mean, hell, the game's themselves had very little to do with player interaction, how hard could a movie possibly be?

    Is that Winston Payne behind him with the glasses?

    I can't believe I tried to look at my computer from the side to try and see what was on the paper Phoenix was holding.

    Its great to see Capcom giving Praise to the underrated Ace attorney series. What With Professor Layton vs Ace Attorney, Phoenix Wright in UMVC3 and now THIS. The only, ONLY thing that can make this better is Localizing AAI2, and so far on that progress, Sven confirmed their working on it, but interesting, its NOT gonna be on DS, one of candidates is 3DS which should be a suprise but not eerything's confirmed. Merely Having Subtitles for this movie would be awesome and acceptable!

    Takashi is a fantastic director. I really hope it gets subbed and gets over to USA. I'm sure it will.

    Overruled, you need to have something to object to.
