After three agonizing months of silence after the release of the Attack on Titan Live Action poster was revealed, and a look at who the main cast will be, we finally get a short sneak peak at the exciting post apocalyptic upcoming feature.
The short teaser was shown on a segment on a Japanese variety show, which after was posted to youtube quite quickly. The movie clip is literally only a few seconds long, but from what we can see, it looks quite good! The Titans look menacing, as they should, an also a look at the collosal Titan which looked amazing! Unfortunately no footage of the 3Dimensional Maneuver gear in action, but it will only be a short wait to summer to find out how everything looks.
The films are directed by Shinji Higuchi (Neon Genesis Evangelion, Kill la Kill). The live action adaption will span across two films which are aimed to be released this summer in Japan. Hajime Isayama has been busy working on the scripts with screenwriter Yuusuke Watanabe (“Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods”, “20th Century Boys”) and film critic Tomohiro Machiyama.
The manga has inspired spinoffs, a hit anime series, tons of merchandise and video games. It was revealed earlier this month that Sony Pictures Entertainment had registered numerous domain names tied to an “Attack on Titan” movie, suggesting a US version could be in development.
The sneak peak begins at :58 in!
