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.”

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.
