FFVII: Advent Children to premiere in Japanese theaters

Square Enix reveals its upcoming DVD movie will hit Japanese cinemas before release on DVD.


CHIBA CITY, Japan--Square Enix announced today that its forthcoming computer-animated movie Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children will be hitting theaters in Japan before its release on DVD. The company revealed at its Square Enix Party that the movie will be making it premiere in Japan on September 8 and will then officially open in the country's theaters on September 10. The DVD and UMD release will follow four days later on September 14.

Square Enix's announcement came as a surprise to the audiences at the show. But although the news was huge, it was only unveiled in the form of a few lines of text after the presentation of its FFVIIAC trailer. The company hasn't disclosed details on where Advent Children will be showing, and it seems possible that the movie might only be available in a limited selection of theaters.

This is the second major announcement regarding FFVIIAC that Square Enix has made during the month. The company also announced earlier that the movie will once again be shown as this year's 62nd Venice Film Festival, this time in its completed form.
