More Attack on Titan News! Live-Action Movie to see Special Premiere in United States!

wp_ss_20150701_0002[1]

It seems like Toho and Funimation think that the best way to get some exposure for the upcoming Attack on Titan live-action film is to premiere it in North America. More than a month ahead of its intended release date.

Now no one should be too excited as the early release is only promotional. July 14th is the date and will be shown at the Egyptian Theater in Los Angeles (the same theater that premiered Dragonball Z Resurrection ‘F’). The fall season will see the part one and two come to North, Central, and South America (in select theaters) so there is no reason to feel too bad about the actual wait.

The early premiere in North does serve as promotional endeavor as it comes right after San Diego Comic-Con where FUNimation will be with Attack On Titan director Shinji Higuchi. CEO and President of FUNimation Entertainment Gen Fukunaga, in relation to Comic-Con, said that  “FUNimation is honored to host the world premiere of Attack On Titan here in the United States with Toho.” He also says that “Attack On Titan is truly a worldwide phenomenon and we are excited to bring the live action movie to theaters across the Americas later this fall.”

Attack on Titan Live-Action Movie Second Trailer (Now With Subtitles)

news_xlarge_shingeki04

The wait for Attack on Titan’s live-action theatrical release is winding down as we get closer to the debut pf part one in theaters (in Japan anyway). Its only right to take advantage of the time left to get fans excited and with that comes a second trailer for the live-action adaptation. This time around the trailer includes subtitles and some extended scenes of the titans in all their CGI glory. For what its worth, it looks great. But don’t take my word for it when you can check out the trailer below.

Don’t know if it can get much better than that. The popularity of Attack on Titan has grown exponentially since the manga began its run in 2009, and again in anime form in 2013. Expect it to take another jump when part one opens August 1, 2015 with part two scheduled for September 19, 2015.

Live-Action Attack on Titan Film Gets a TV Spinoff

It looks as though the Attack on Titan franchise is not only jumping on the live-action bandwagon, but the spinoff bandwagon as well. And the movie itself hasn’t even come out yet!

The television spinoff will tie into the films and revolve around the everyday lives of the soldiers with many of the cast of the film reprising their roles (including Satomi Ishihara as Hanji and Ayame Misaki as Hiana).

Credit to Anime News Network as they have reported that Shinji Higuchi (director of both live-action films) will be in the directors seat again for this project as well. Between the incoming Attack on Titan films, the upcoming Godzilla film by Toho, and this project, it would seem that he has quite a bit of work to do. Considering the track record he has with former projects I don’t think that will be a problem.

It’s still early so expect the news to come pretty fast as we get closer to the debut of the live-action Attack on Titan films with the first of two premiering Aug. 1 in Japan, and the second one on Sept. 19.

First Full Length Trailer for Live Action Attack on Titan Movie; Release Set for Aug.1

aramajapan_attack-on-titan-posterFor all the anime/manga fans, one of the biggest phenomenons in recent memory has beenHajime Isayama’s Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin). After years of issues with production relating to the manga’s Live Action release, it finally found its footing with word that the film would be directed by Shinji Higuchi (Kill la Kill, Tekken: Blood Vengence). He would later be joined by Yūsuke Watanabe (Gantz Live Action and DBZ: Battle of the Gods),Tomohiro Machiyama and Isayama who would write the script. With the team in place, the plan was to split the film in two parts with the first part set for a release in the summer of 2015.

We are getting closer to the date of the first film and with that comes a look at the first full length trailer. Check it out below!

Awesome stuff coming from the trailer. Looks like fans will get their fill of action and excitement when part one drops on August 1st with the second scheduled for September 19th.
