John Connor [Celluloid 07.21.15] Japan post apocalyptic scifi horror action adventure



As you all know, the world-wide manga smash, Attack on Titan, has been given the live action treatment by Higuchi Shinji and it's coming to our shores soon. August 1st to be more specific. A new trailer has dropped with more flesh eating giants, more action and mare English subtitles!

Attack on Titan will be released stateside on August 1, with a sequel Attack on Titan: End of the World planned for release as early as mid-September.


Synopsis:
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?

Honestly, I never liked Attack on Titan very much. The Titans just seemed to win because the writers made mankind's collective brains fall out when it was convenient to the story.

Not to mention that the story itself has all the subtlety and grace of writing "mindless consumerism" on a baseball bat and beating the audience in the head with it.

If you want to see a very similar premise to AoT but done way WAAAAAYYYYYY better, read the webcomic Stand Still, Stay Silent.

The parts w/o the Titans are boring and trite, but the parts with the Titans are fucking awesome.
