Live Action Attack on Titan trailer 2 lands

The Attack on Titan live action movie has had some fans concerned for a while, with its B movie look in an early trailer and the fact that technology of the time appears to include rocket launchers, something certainly lacking from the pseudo medieval setting of the manga/anime. Still, the movie is continuing apace and today we have a new trailer that adds to the creep factor and suggests the movie could be a little better than previously expected.

In this latest showing off the movie, we get a much more close up look at our pal the Colossal Titan, as well as a lot of panicking humans. The latter half however shows humanity's response to the Titan menace, including some fan favourite characters like Hange Zoe – who appears suitably crazy, as she does in the original material.

As usual with a lot of adaptations though – Game of Thrones being  a prime example – a good number of ages have been adjusted for the movie. Eren and Mikasa both appear to be in their late teens, rather than 12-13 as they are in the early stages of the story. There is also a predominance of Asian actors, despite that heritage being said to have almost died out in the manga – but that's understandable given where the movie was filmed.

“Here's Colossi!”

Shingeki No Kyojin is set for release on the 1st August this year.

KitGuru Says: I may watch this at some point but the relatively low-level effects don't give me too much hope for it. I'm still waiting for the official books to catch up with the unofficial translations I read. I never realised how far behind they were.

We gave plenty of coverage to Intel's new Core Ultra range of Meteor Lake laptop processors but appeared to give AMD the cold shoulder, and it is now time to fix that apparent oversight.
