Less than two weeks after the debut of the second trailer for the "Attack on Titan" live-action film, Australian distributor Madman Entertainment has released an English-subtitled version. It accompanied an announcement this morning that the adaptation will receive theatrical release later this year in Australia and New Zealand,
Directed by Shinji Higuchi, under the supervision of manga creator Hajime Isayama, the adaptation of "Attack on Titan" is split into two films, with the first opening Aug. 1 in Japan, and the second, “Attack on Titan: End of the World,” arriving Sept. 19.
Debuting in 2009, “Attack on Titan” is a post-apocalyptic fantasy set in a world where remorseless, flesh-eating giants have all but wiped out humanity, whose remnants are forced to live within a country surrounded by three enormous walls. The story initially centers on Eren Yeager, his adopted sister Mikasa Ackerman and their childhood friend Armin Alert, who join the military to fight the Titans after their hometown is attacked and Eren’s mother eaten.
