Japanese news site RocketNews24 has announced there will a live-action Attack on Titan movie released next year.
The first movie will re-cap the first 13 episodes and a second movie is scheduled for release the following year; this one will cover episodes 14-25.
For those of you who haven’t seen this anime, you might be sparing yourself the image of a post-apocalyptic future where 12-foot “titans” eat the remaining members of the human population (for fun!), as they are quarantined within the walls of the last nation-state remaining on the planet.
The show is highly addicting and you can probably binge-watch it on Crunchy Roll, free with paid subscription, if you’re a budding masochistic who would like to see your nightmares realized in a beautifully hand-drawn and computer-animated medium.
First, watch the anime, then make sure to catch the live-action film, starring actor/singer Haruma Miura, slated for release next year.
Maybe we can discuss whether they did a good job of covering all the bases in a future post, or something?
While I have your attention, for the moment, why don’t you check out photos from Kotaku of Battlefield Island (the location of the set of the film), as they are absolutely amazing!
