Ace Attorney movie from Takashi Miike to get worldwide release

The Ace Attorney series is about to jump from the DS to the movie theater. Prolific Japanese director Takashi Miike, who worked on 13 Assassins, Sukiyaki Western: Django, and Ichi the Killer, is in charge of bringing Capcom's big-haired lawyer to the big screen.

The 135 minute long affair covers all five cases of the first game and will be receiving a worldwide release.

Speaking at International Film Festival Rotterdam, Miike told audience members about trying to create a film that would cater to avid fans and those that had never heard of Phoenix Wright. According to TwitchFilm, the end result is a "love-it or hate-it affair," like many of Miike's previous films.

Here's a Japanese trailer for the movie (via CVG):
