Attack on Titan (Live Action Movie)
Release Date: Summer 2015 (Japan)
If you haven't heard, massively popular manga and anime series Attack On Titan is getting a live-action movie. And this is the very first look at the adapted characters (including some new characters as well).
Website Sanspo and Eiga jointly released the first-ever Attack on Titan posters. Sadly no Titans were seen, but these images do give us a good idea to the general feel of the movie. According to Anime News Network, there are seven new characters and Hasegawa's character Shikishima is "humanity's strongest man." Also, it's worth noting that these character appear to be standing in some sort of post-apocalyptic world? Maybe, it also could just be the photoshoot and working with what they had. Either way, is this movie set in a different location that what we're used to?
And here's what Anime News Network has to say about the look of the characters:
On the cast selection, producer Yoshihiro Sato said he did not pay as much attention to whether or not the cast members looked like the original characters. Instead, he had many discussions with Attack on Titan manga creator Hajime Isayama and went with actors who could act out the "characters' spirits
Attack on Titan is set in a world where gigantic monsters (Titans) roam around eating humans, seemingly willy-nilly with no reason other than to shove flesh into their creepy smiling mouths. It's horrifying and we can't wait to see what they look like "IRL." But until then, enjoy your look at live action Eren and friends.
