    Q: How about doing a theatrical version of Carnival Phantasm?

    A: The year is 20XX A.D., and the end of the world has come.
    From the far reaches of space, the mysterious life form Ultimate One: Nine Code appears.
    The sky turns blood red, electronic devices everywhere stop working, and the earth descends into chaos.
    In the midst of the panic, Emiya Shirou and Tohno Shiki -- two absolutely normal high school students vacationing in England -- witness two girls in a violent battle with sparks, plasma, and beams!
    One, a princess of knights that hides her name.
    The other, a vampire that... doesn't.
    Taking heavy damage, the two girls crash into the city that has already been reduced to rubble. The two boys split up and head toward the crash site. And thus, without noticing, their destinies also split apart.

    In the end, what is survival? Is it the moon? Is it fate?
    The curtain is rising on a Holy Grail War of unprecedented scale! Opening next season in theaters worldwide!

    But... It's. Live. Action.


    ツアーパックでイギリスを旅行していた平凡な高校生、衛宮士郎と遠野志貴はパニックの中、二人の少女が激し く火花とかプラズマとかビームとかを散らす戦いに巻き込まれる。
    両者は共に傷つき、瓦礫の街に墜落。二人の少年は二手に分かれて墜落現場に向かった。それが、互いの運命を 分ける事になると気付かないまま。


    ただし 実 写 映 画。
