Ace Attorney Film Cast Photos -- We Don't Object

I don't know about you all, but I've been keeping a close eye on Takashi Miike's film adaptation of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. Miike is probably best known by gamer-folk for his work on deeply disturbing thriller/horrors like Audition and Ichi the Killer, but he's always had a soft spot for lighter fare as well. His game adaptation, titled Ace Attorney, screened just last week at the Internation Film Festival Rotterdam and it was followed by a Q&A with the maestro himself.

Miike revealed to the crowd that a worldwide release is planned for Ace Attorney, and that the subtitles and dubs in each region will be tailored to match the in-game character names for those regions, TwitchFilm reports. The movie's running time clocks in at around two and a half hours. Bear in mind, however, that this was a world premiere festival screening, so edits may be coming. Twitch also has a review of the film up if you're curious, though you'll want to avoid it if you hope to stay spoiler-free.

Then again, those who played the first game in the series shouldn't have to worry too much; Ace Attorney follows the story laid out in that initial game's first five court cases.
