Huh. They don't usually release international trailers for upcoming movies as a matter of course, do they? I'm hoping this means it's going to be available in the west in one form or another. It'd be really cool to get to see it in a cinema.
I dont follow them enough to be sure of that but I have seen many international trailers for Japanese films (from other companies) in the past like the Higurashi films titled as "Shill Cries of Summer" but those never got a English subbed release outside of Japan (that I know of). Maybe the Japanese home release will have English subtitles? I know the Steins;Gate movie has English subs in the Blu-Ray release but who knows. Its a possibility.
We should wait on further details like the home release and check if it comes subbed on the DVD and Blu-Ray or something. I know Japan uses region 2 for DVD and region A for their Blu-Ray. I think some of their Blu-Ray releases are released region free but I dont know how common that is.
I guess all we can do is cross our fingers till then or maybe hope they'll have an English distributor
EDIT: Now that I think about it. Sadako 3D was released legitimately in English for the US but my sources like CrunchyRoll never said a word about it even I didn't knew a thing about it till just recently so maybe its a possibility.
