The official website for the Gekijō-ban Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge film opened and began streaming a teaser trailer. (In the linked page, select the "特報" spider on the righthand side.) The film will center around the character Kurapika, who became a hunter to seek revenge on the Phantom Troupe for the massacre of his clan.
The film's staff have noted that the film will be a "dramatic action" film with an completely original story. The Phantom Troupe will make an appearance in the film, and the "rouge" in the title refers to the red eyes of the Kurta clan that Kurapika hails from. The first main visual for the film depicts a spider with the number "4" in Kurapika's red eye.
The film will open in theaters in Japan on January 12, 2013. This will be the first film in the Hunter x Hunter franchise.
