I will never understand why people want to watch things like this, or the "first 30 minutes of Mass Effect 3" video I saw advertised on Eurogamer, for example.

Warner Bros. Japan are doing this for so many anime movies and movie adaptations of manga... not that it makes much difference because Berserk and Wild 7 aren't/didn't perform all that well in the charts.

How will the forthcoming Kenshin movie do?
