Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV — First 12 Minutes


added: Tue, Aug 16th '16

Here are the first 12 minutes of the eye-popping, CG-animated, video-game film "Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV," which is opening in select theaters this Friday.

Produced by the Japanese game developer Square Enix as a feature-length companion film for the new Final Fantasy video game, "Kingsglaive" is set in a futuristic/medieval fantasy world, where a war is raging between two powerful empires made of human and machines. The film features the voices of "Breaking Bad" Emmy-winner Aaron Paul and "Game of Thrones" stars Lena Headey and Sean Bean.

Square Enix stirred up some controversy this week when they announced that the company has decided to delay the release of the new Final Fantasy video game by two months. The "Final Fantasy XV": Video Game was originally slated to be released on September 30. The game will now be out on November 29.

Meanwhile, the movie is sticking with its current schedule. Following a small theatrical run this weekend, "Kingsglaive" will be made available on Digital beginning August 30. It's also due out on Blu-ray and DVD on October 4.

The magical kingdom of Lucis is home to the world's last remaining Crystal, and the menacing empire of Niflheim is determined to steal it. King Regis (voiced by Sean Bean) of Lucis commands an elite force of soldiers called the Kingsglaive. Wielding their king's magic, they 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 (voiced by Aaron Paul) to Princess Lunafreya (voiced by Lena Headey) of Tenebrae, captive of Niflheim, and surrender his lands to Niflheim 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.
