Check out the second trailer for the upcoming Attack on Titan live action film!
The extremely popular anime (also known by the title Shingeki no Kyojoin) translates beautifully to the silver screen. The landscapes show the scope of desolation that affects the inhabitants of Walls Maria, Rose, and Sina.
If you don’t speak Japanese, don’t worry! The audio retells the basic plot:
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.
The dusty brown hues speak to the apocalyptic nature of the series and the Titans are truly terrifying. They tower above our protagonists, muscles sinewy and exposed.
The second trailer truly looks like a war film. Citizens run scattered as the Titans break through the city. Members of the Survey Corps salute in their matching jackets, 3-D Maneuver Gear on their hips. While we haven’t yet seen the 3-DMG in action, it will be epic if done well.
Directed by Shinji Higuchi, the film releases this August in Japan and stars Haruma Miura, Kiko Mizuhara, Kanata Hongô, Satomi Ishihara, Nanami Sakuraba, Takahiro Miura and Hiroki Hasegawa. It airs in Japan on August 1, 2015.
