The past week or so has given us some new tidbits about the upcoming Gyakuten Saiban film, which is slated to hit Japanese theaters on February 11th, 2012.
First of all, the ever-vigilant JapaneseGIRL let us know that we have a new trailer for the film
. While not subtitled at the moment, it will be updated with subs if anyone can provide them.
Second, the film's theme song was announced to be "2012Spark" by the Japanese band Porno Graffiti. It can be heard in part in the trailer above.
Third, a partial cast list was announced.

Finally, an OST for the film
is set to be released February 8th, 2012. No tracklisting is yet available.
Regrettably, there's been no news of an official English dub or sub, but we'll keep our ears to the ground. Update 12/20/11:
The eagle-eyed Masterchap let us know that the film will be screened at the International Film Festival in Rotterdam, which runs from January 25th to February 5th. You can check out the website (in Dutch) here
; it also has an officially-subbed English trailer, and according to Masterchap foreign films at the festival are usually subbed in English. Perhaps a good sign for an eventual Western release!
Due to end-of-semester obligations, I will be less active between now and Dec. 17th or later. Please allow a little extra time for me to respond to messages. If a fast response is needed, please contact one of the other staff. Thanks!
If there was such a thing as the "Wooster Seal of Approval
", this post
would get it.
