I'm really intrigued by this. I really hope that this and the upcoming Rurouni Kenshin OVA do decently showing that there's continued interest in the franchise. I was told that if the new OVA does well, Sony is looking at going back to the anime series and do the Jinchu arc of the manga properly.
EDIT: Just read that the staff involved with the movie are aiming to have it released internationally! Really hope that this happens
