So, Phoenix Wright is getting a live-action movie...

Gyakuten Saiban Movie Trailer 2

Well, I'm excited.  It appears to go over all four cases from the first game, which is pretty awesome. ;D

Here's hoping it does well enough in theaters for a sequel.

I have mixed feelings. On one hand, it's Phoenix Wright and it is accurate, so it's awesome. At the same time, if it's so accurate, what's the point?

I'll definitely give it a watch, though.

Much as I love Mr. Wright, I can't see this either,
A) doing the series justice, or,
B) doing well financially.

Well, maybe B overseas--different culture and whatnot.

I guess my personal take on it would be that the actors don't seem sufficiently over-the-top, and that von Karma doesn't come across as intimidating enough.

Good choice in actors - Hiroki Narimiya is gold in almost everything that he acts in.
Not sure how much I'm going to enjoy the over-the-top antics. I tend to enjoy my films realistic versus crazy.
It should be enjoyable regardless, though. :)
Looking forward to watching it at least once for the laugh factor.

I love the games just not sure how I feel about it being a live-action film. Maybe if it were an anime in the style of the game, I'd be more excited about it.
