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

No objections here

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.
