Whilst Japan is having fun watching the first of the live-action Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) movies, based on Hajime Isayama’s manga, Funimation have released the first North American trailer. The trailer features many of the scenes from the series adapted onto the big screen, from both films. 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. Higuchi has confirmed that the two films will be set in the same world and feature the same main characters, though the film will also incorporate new characters and enemies.
The first live-action Attack on Titan movie is already out in Japanese theatres and the second movie will release on September 19th this year. The first film will release on September 30 in North America and the second will release on October 20.
Here is the previous trailer:
- Haruma Miura (Yama in the live action Captain Harlock) playing the role of Eren Jaeger
- Kiko Mizuhara (Saki Tateshina in Platinum Data) plays Mikasa Ackerman
- Kanata Hongo (Joichiro Nishi in Gantz) as Armin Arlert
