No one has objections with first look at Japanese “Phoenix Wright” movie
Law & Order ain’t got nothing on Phoenix Wright, especially since he is about to have a live-action movie made about his digital self!
The Sōkai Jōhō Variety Sukkiri television series’ “All Entertainment Quiz” segment aired footage from the upcoming live-action “Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney” film this week. Directed by Takashi Miike and based on the hit Capcom game, the movie stars Hiroki Narimiya as Phoenix Wright, as well as Takumi Saitō as prosecutor Miles Edgeworth and Mirei Kiritani as Maya Fey.
The film is set in a parallel universe version of Japan, where a large increase in harsh crimes has led to a new court system. Under this new system, the defense attorney and public prosecutor have three days to battle cases out in open court to determine guilt or innocence of the accused, placing priority on speed instead of thorough investigation. The film will open in Japan on February 11, and most likely never in America except through bootlegs and the internet.
