Yes, you read right. Japan has been in the works to create a Phoenix Wright movie that accurately reflects the games - complete with series famous exclamations! It's due for release (so far Japan only) in February. The full length trailer just premiered:

Every now and then Japanese adaptations do things like this, where the costuming/etc is so literal, so overly faithful, that it ends up looking much worse than it would if they'd tried to adapt it to something remotely close to how real people look.

Usually it just makes stuff look like a surprisingly high-budgeted but still crappy cosplay skit, but for some reason it makes this look amazing.
PS: Granted, it still looks like a high-budgeted but cruddy cosplay skit. Just one that's amazing.

It's going to be the shit. Miike is a great director for hire on projects like this.

Part of me feels compelled to point out that Miike makes about eighteen movies every year and there's a reason we haven't heard of all of them, but the vast majority of me is high-fiving itself and wondering why I didn't notice Miike was the director because hahaha that's awesome.

Oh holy shit, I had no idea Miike was directing this. Now I'm SUPER stoked.

This looks fucking incredible and I've been flipping out over it since the second trailer came out. Edgey is disappointing, but everything else is FUCKING PRICELESS.

The boat shot!!!!!

When your film adaptation's costuming makes Takarazuka's look tasteful and understated, you are on some next level shit.

PS: Actually this is a better look than that crappy video so look at this instead:
