The Blood-C: The Last Dark has been promised to not only leave a better taste in the mouths of the fans of this franchise, but to even be a lot better than the series, hopefully the first instalment of the Blood-C films. It will definitely be something to remember with the new graphics, the seiyyu (which can be seen below) and the awaited gore that was missing a lot in the anime.
Cast, staff and additional information for the characters of the upcoming release have been shared through the official website of the movie. Here is all the information that I managed to gather from them:

Seeing how many of the people who worked on the TV show will be back in the same position, I can’t help but wonder if the changes are going to work as well as I hoped, however, keeping in mind that they’ve decided to make a film after the bad ending and displeased otaku, it might mean that they were not happy with the final result as well.
The movie will premiere in theatres across Japan June 2, 2012. HERE you can see the list of all the cinemas where you can see Blood-C: The Last Dark are.
