The popular horror anime/manga has given birth to a live action movie titled Attack on Titan (2015) aka Shingeki no kyojin: Attack on Titan (2015). The Attack on Titan movie is set to release in Japan on August 1, 2015. Shinji Higuchi directs the movie and this trailer looks simply… Amazing! Shinji Higuchi will direct the two scheduled Attack on Titan movies on which the Attack on Titan manga creator Hajime Isayama consulted on. That is just the tip of the iceberg, the second Attack on Titan movie will also release in Japan on September 19, 2015… just a month away. I am just jealous about this news but I just have to wait like the rest of you for the US release with hopefully good subtitles or dare I dream, English dubbed movie. In the meantime, watch this trailer and cry because we have a long wait before it reaches the US.
Synopsis: The story of Attack on Titan takes place in a world where the remnants of humanity live inside a series of connected cities, isolated by enormous walls. These walls exists to keep the Titans out, gigantic humanoid creatures who devour humans seemingly without reason. These Titans have reduced the world’s population to staggeringly low numbers.
