Attack On Titan (Live-Action Movie)


With the popularity of Anime becoming more and more mainstream, such as Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Full Metal Alchemist, and more recently Sword Art Online.  The fact that many of these anime have crossed over from being Manga, to Anime, to Cosplay,  to Video games, and now many becoming Live-Action movies.  The popularity and exposure that they get is becoming more and more relevant to pop culture today.   

One example is the highly popular, Attack On Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin), in which giant humanoid creatures called Titans, nearly wipe out humanity.  The remaining population take refuge in a concentric 3 walled city with massively high walls.  By comparison a Titan can reach up to 200 Feet in height.  The story begins, 100 years after the first attack, where these Titans appear once again to try and destroy of what remains of humanity.  

Attack On Titan, has been so popular as a Manga, that transformed into an Anime series which was also very popular.  Its had a few video game releases in the past,  and one upcoming release was just announce today May 1st, 2015 by a local California based publisher; Atlus.  They will be releasing Attack on Titan:  Humanity in Chain on May 12th, exclusively for the  Nintendo 3DS.  


Beyond the release of video games, there have been limited runs of attractions in Japan.  Like their Attack on Titan display at Universal Studios Japan.  Where they have life sized character displays of the heroes, and a display of actual life sized Titans in the theme park.
