Just before the film’s release, a new trailer has been revealed for the first of the 2 upcoming live-action Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) movies, based on Hajime Isayama’s manga of the same name. The 3 minute long trailer shows us new footage of the upcoming films, a look at the titans as they break down Wall Maria, and the early days of Eren as part of the Survey Corps. The films will be directed by Shinji Higuchi (Nadia – The Secret of Blue Water) and produced by TOHO (Ao Haru Ride Live Action Film, Pokémon Films). Isayama will be overseeing the story of the upcoming film.
