Well it has seemed like forever and an age since we saw the first trailers and shots of this project, but FF7AC will finally have its first premiere on Wednesday 31 August at the Venice Film Festival. This will be followed by a very small promotional theatre run in Japan. As far as I know, there are no plans for a concurrent theatrical release outside Japan atm :( The rest of us may most likely end up seeing it on DVD/UMD first which is released in Japan on Sep 14th.

For those that are unfamiliar, FF7 AC is a short film, entirely CGI, which is a sequel to the events of the Final Fantasy 7 game that was launched on the Ps1 many years ago.

The shots and trailers are quite awesome, and the great characters from the game are all in there....

screenshots and trailers available at :
Official Advent Children Website (http://www.square-enix.co.jp/dvd/ff7ac/)

There is also a new(very short and quick) tv commercial released, which yoiu can check out here (nb. voices in Japanese)

Woah, I thought that came out on DVD like, a year ago... In fact just the other day I was like "I need to rent that, that looks cool." :p

So, this is good news I guess. :D

[edit] I know why I thought that now: Clicky (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0385700/)

Well, that's what Square does... At least with every FF title.

I saw The Spirits Within movie and enjoyed it because you didn't really have to play the games to understand it. I've seen trailers and shots of Advent Children and liked what I saw. Being a person who's never played a final fantasy game will you need to know a back story to FF7: AC or can it just be viewed as a stand alone movie? I haven't really been reading much about it.

From what I understand Chase, their will be some recapping, as famous scenes from the game seem to have been included in the film.

It wouldnt hurt to have a quick refresher of the game events/characters though. SW fans will also appreciate the 'Cait Sith' and 'Red XIII' characters :p "Biggs and Wedge" also pop up in various FF titles as well :p
