Preface. For some of you who aren’t all that familiar with Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) I’ll give you a little briefer. In some nondescript German..European town of some sort, a 50 foot wall has been built around it. There are actually three, the outer one being Maria (that’s the one you’l see that big ass Titan hovering over with the hot ass breath), the middle Rose and the inner most one that protects the King, Sina.
The reason this wall exist is because for some unknown unexplained reason (there is a reason BUT YOU’LL HAVE TO READ TO FIND OUT) these humanoid monsters ranging from “Wow, that’s tall,” to “WOW THAT’S PRETTY DAMN TALL” to “WOW WHAT THE FUCK,” showed up and began eating humans (without a real need, they have no stomachs.)
So, that’s about all the information you need (other than the first episode of the Anime is terrifying and irrevocably sad.)
WITH THAT BEING SAID, Japan (God Bless You, Japan) has decided that Shingeki no Kyojin needed not only a movie, but a live action movie that will be offered in 4D (I didn’t even know that was a real thing in regards to movies. Again, God Bless, Japan.)
And dat-da-dadaaaaaaa! Here is the latest trailer for it.
And here is a nice translation provided to us by the good people over at Anime News Network:
