With the whole world enamored by Square Enix’s massive push for Final Fantasy XV, a number of people are still skeptical about the Kingsglaivefilm. Well, you can take the ultimate leap of faith with Square on August 19, because according to IGN, it’ll be shown in “select theaters” on that date. Sight unseen I don’t know if I’d go watch a CGI video game film, but with a group of friends and some beers beforehand, it’s a possibility.
Here’s the full synopsis for the film if you aren’t familiar with it yet, as well as a behind the scenes clip with some of the actors.
Exclusive Sneak Peek [IGN]
“The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the sacred Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis of Lucis (Sean Bean) commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king’s magic, Nyx (Aaron Paul) and his fellow soldiers fight to protect Lucis. As the overwhelming military might of the empire bears down, King Regis is faced with an impossible ultimatum – to marry his son, Prince Noctis to Princess Lunafreya of Tenebrae (Lena Headey), captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to the empire’s rule. Although the king concedes, it becomes clear that the empire will stop at nothing to achieve their devious goals, with only the Kingsglaive standing between them and world domination.”
