Live-Action Attack on Titan Films' New Trailers Reveal 3D Maneuver Gear in Action

Post by Sour Puss on Tue Jun 23, 2015 1:46 pm

The official website for the live-action films of Hajime Isayama's Attack on Titan manga began streaming a new full trailer on Tuesday. The trailer unveils the live-action version of the story's signature 3D maneuver gear in action for the first time: 










In addition, the two films will be the first Japanese films to employ four different systems for an immersive experience. With the 4DX or MX4D systems, certain theaters have motion seats that move in sync with certain action sequences onscreen. Similarly, effects such as scents and wind will operate in accordance with the action onscreen. Theaters with D-Box seats that move and IMAX screens will also screen the films. (The two anime compilation films are employing similar "4D experiences.")






 The cast includes seven characters that are new to the film versions of the story. Hasegawa's character Shikishima holds the key to the films' story as "humanity's strongest man."

Director Shinji Higuchi stated that, with the supervision of Attack on Titan manga creator Hajime Isayama, the story is based on the world and characters of the manga, while incorporating new characters and new formidable enemies. Yuusuke Watanabe (Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, live-action Gantz, Gantz II: Perfect Answer, 20th Century Boys, Gatchaman) wrote the scripts. Film critic Tomohiro Machiyama, who is also friends with Isayama, worked on the scripts together with Isayama and Watanabe.


The band SEKAI NO OWARI is contributing the first and second films' theme songs "Anti-Hero" and "SOS," respectively.

The first movie will open in Japan on August 1, and the second movie, Attack on Titan: End of the World, will open on September 19. Madman will screen the movies in theaters in Australia and New Zealand this year.

Isayama's original Attack on Titan manga has inspired four spinoff manga, a 25-episode television anime version that aired in 2013, and two compilation films, the second of which will open in June. Additionally, a second season of the television anime series is slated to air in 2016. Isayama launched the series in Bessatsu Shonen Magazine in 2009.

Kodansha Comics is publishing Isayama's original manga in North America. The company is also releasing three of the four spinoff manga, and the Attack on Titan Guidebooks: INSIDE & OUTSIDE. Vertical is publishing the Attack on Titan: Before the Fall and Attack on Titan: Kuklo Unbound light novels.

Both Funimation and Crunchyroll streamed the anime version of the manga as it aired in Japan, and Funimation released the series on home video last year.
