Toho Company has unveiled a second trailer for the eagerly awaited live-action adaptation of "Attack on Titan."
Directed by Shinji Higuchi, the adaptation of Hajime Isayama’s hit manga will be spread across two films, with the first premiering Aug. 1 in Japan; the second, called "Attack on Titan: End of the World," will arrive Sept. 19.
Isayama worked on the scripts with screenwriter Yuusuke Watanabe (“Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods,” “20th Century Boys”) and film critic Tomohiro Machiyama.
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.
