The new trailer features the theme song Tadashiku Narenai (‘I Can’t Be Right’) by Zutto Mayonaka de Iinoni (‘I Wish It Was Midnight All The Time’). It also features scenes not included in previous promos for the movie. The trailer was posted to both The Promised Neverland’s Twitter account and to Toho Movie’s YouTube channel.
Minami Hamabe, who plays Emma in the film, commented on the theme song in the liner notes of the YouTube video:
‘I liked the world view of Zutto Mayonaka de Iinoni, and listened to the song. So it was encouraging to be in charge of the theme song in the world of Neva. The theme song “I Can’t Be Right” is Emma, who resists the environment. When I first heard it, I felt that I could clearly see the worldview of The Promised Neverland‘s live-action movie. I also wanted to see the movie that was completed when the theme song was played on the end roll. Thank you for the wonderful song.’
The live-action movie covers the first part of the story. So naturally, we see a lot of the orphans at Grace Field House in the promo.

Members of the movie cast and voice actors from the show got together for a little Q&A and other silly stuff during a livestream event on 5 December. If you missed it, Toho Movie re-posted it to their channel this morning:
