Gamercamp 2012 to Premiere Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Film
Gamercamp returns to Toronto November 3-4, 2012 and with it, a great panel of speakers, social events, discussions and, of course, the theatre events. This year Gamercamp will host the exclusive Toronto premiere of the film adaptation of cult hit adventure game Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney by famed Japanese director Takashi Miike (Ichi The Killer, Audition, 13 Assassins).
Miike’s adaptation expands on the game’s story of a young lawyer given just three days to argue and solve the biggest case of his life, while blending the visual style with the director’s own manic sensibilities. The film has been declared by Kotaku as “the best videogame movie ever!” while IGN called it “a pitch-perfect adaptation.” Ace Attorneyhas shown to sold-out crowds at festivals in New York and Montreal and is sure to be similarly successful in Toronto.
Gamercamp is giving Phoenix Wright fans two chances to catch the film: a special Hallowe’en screening on Wednesday October 31st at 7 PM, co-presented by CINSSU at Innis Town Hall (2 Sussex Avenue), and a post-Gamercamp screening on Sunday November 4th at 6 PM, co-presented by Toronto After Dark, at the Isabel Bader Theatre (93 Charles St. W.). The film is a separately-ticketed event from Gamercamp, although attendees receive a discount for the Sunday screening.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney was developed and published by CAPCOM. The filmPhoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is distributed by the Nippon Television Network Corporation.
