Last month, Toho introduced the cast for Higuchi Shinji's two-part live-action film Attack On Titan via a set of character posters, but the biggest question remains from the fans - how will the giants look?  Well, our first glimpse of the towering Colossal Titan has now been revealed in a new teaser poster with a tagline stating "The world is cruel".

Keeping true to the saying that size does matter, the official site proclaims the giant titan will be even larger than Godzilla himself, standing 120m tall, compared to Garth Edwards' tallest Godzilla at 108m.  A combination of CG and practical SFX is being employed under the supervision of special effects director Onoue Katsuro to bring these destructive monstrosities to life.  Conceptual art was designed by Tajima Kouji who interestingly enough, painted a cool Attack on Titan fan poster.

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?
The first chapter will open in August, while the second will follow in September.  Click on the poster below to enlarge the image.

I'm kinda curious how they will do it. I loved how the cartoon looked, but other than that the characters weren't very interesting and I thought it was a bit of your typical pretentious anime stuff. "Hey, let's give everyone german / foreign names to make it seem more special!" They used 25 episodes to tell something they could probably do in 12 or less, haha. Almost felt like DBZ in a way, during Freeza saga for example: Episode 10: "Hurry, the planet is going to explode in 2 minutes." Episode 15: "Come on! There's no time, the planet is blowing up in 90 seconds!"

Shows like these are sometimes a test of patience, but for some reason you keep watching....

There were a lot of things in Attack On Titan that I enjoyed, but equally a lot that frustrated me. As long as they stay of the course of a action-drama, and leave out the teen-angsty stuff I didn't like, I may enjoy this movie.

Cartoon was very lame. Excited about this.

I thought the anime was excellent and refreshed itself with that outrageous blonde titan during the latter episodes. Constantly entertaining. The thing I worry about most with these Japanese blockbusters is the special effects. They don't have 200 million dollar budgets, and the tone in this film needs to be serious and convincingly horrific.
