Attack On Titan is the closing night film for Montreal’s currently-in-progress Fantasia Festival — and watching the new, epic trailer for this movie from Japanese director Shinji Higuchi it is easy to see why the programmers decided to give the project that honor.
Based on the manga tales of Hajime Isayama, Attack on Titan is set in world where, according to Fantasia’s synopsis, “for one hundred years, humanity—or what remains of it—has existed within the protective confines of the three great walls. The towering structures were built to resist the hordes of Titans, horrific humanoid giants that arrived inexplicably and seemed to have no other purpose than to savagely devour men, women, and children. A century of security and peace is shattered when a particularly large and grotesque Titan breaches a section of the outer wall.”
