Previously, we wrote about the first “Attack on Titan” trailer, which was released back April this year.
Now, a fuller version of the manga-based movie’s trailer is out – and it’s English subbed.
The upcoming Japanese action film directed by Shinji Higuchi and based on the manga series of the same name by Hajime Isayama. The film will be split into 2 parts, with the first part scheduled to be released in Japan on 1st August 2015 and the second part, titled, “Attack on Titan: End of the World”, immediately to follow on 19th September 2015.
“Attack on Titan” follows the story of Eren Jaeger (played by Haruma Miura), a boy who desires to eliminate the titan threat. He is joined by his adopted sister, Mikasa (played by Kiko Mizuhara), and his closest friend, Armin (Kanata Hongō). When a Colossal Titan appears over Wall Maria, humanity receives a grim reminder that they will always live in fear of the titans.
Fun fact: Most of the film’s action sequences were shot on Hashima Island aka an abandoned island off southern Japan. Hashima Island is the same deserted island used for James Bond’s “Skyfall”. With no human settlement around and no legal obstacles, the production team was allowed to conduct large-scale stunts and explosions.
The screenplay for both films was penned by Yusuke Watanabe, who previously worked on “Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods” and the live-action adaptation of “Gantz”, another popular manga/anime series.

So, who’s planning to watch it if/when it comes out in Malaysia? :)
