First teaser trailer for the live-action Attack on Titan

Attack on Titan

A live-action adaptation of ATTACK ON TITAN has been long in the works, and now we have our first look at what the Shinji Higuchi-directed epic will look like. As is the case with most teasers, this one is all style, offering a quick glimpse into a world where gigantic humanoid creatures—Titans—make man sushi out of human beans simply because they can. They're f*cking giants, guys, they do what they want. Watch the teaser below and see what you think!

If you’re anything like me and this is the first time your hearing about ATTACK ON TITAN, here’s what you need to know:

The sudden arrival of the Titans--mysterious, gigantic humanoid creatures who devour human beings one after the other--brings mankind to the brink of extinction. Fast-forward more than 100 years later. What remains of the human population now live in relative peace behind massive walls that were erected to defend themselves against the Titans. Yet once again, that peace is shattered when a Titan measuring over 50 meters tall smashes through the wall, allowing a horde of other Titans to enter.

The protagonist, Eren, had been resigned to a life confined behind these walls. Nothing I do would make a difference, he thought. But when he joins the "Outer Wall Restoration Team" set up to fight against the Titans, he is reunited with Mikasa, a childhood friend and someone he had long rued not being able to save. The new recruits embark on a mission to obtain explosives, which had become rare and precious, before getting past the waves of Titans to plug the gaping hole in the wall, with humanity's survival on the line. Will there be a future for Eren and Mikasa, and for mankind itself?

So, yeah, that pretty much sums it up. The two-part fantasy film ATTACK ON TITAN is eyeing a theatrical release in Japan during the summer of 2015.
