Now if you have never heard of Attack on Titan I would strongly suggest you find out about it. It is a massively popular manga from Japan that has become so popular it is now an anime series, anime films, soon to be live action films, soon to be theme park and coming very soon a cross-over with [Marvel](channel:932254) Comics! It has exploded worldwide due to its sheer mind blowing original idea on a classic monster. Giants.

"Over a hundred years prior to the beginning of the story, giant humanoid creatures called Titans suddenly appeared and nearly wiped out humanity, devouring them without remorse or reason. What remains of humanity now resides within three enormous concentric walls: the outermost is Wall Maria, the middle wall is Wall Rose and the innermost is Wall Sheena. Inside these walls, humanity has lived in peace for one hundred years; many people growing up without ever having seen a Titan. This all changes when one day, a giant 60-meter tall Titan mysteriously appears after a strike of lightning. It breaches the outer wall of the Shiganshina district, a town at Wall Maria, allowing the smaller Titans to invade the district...."

In October 2011 the live-action version of the popular manga was announced and after recovering from a few bumps in the road it has finally reached the end of its journey. Two films are set to be released in the summer of 2015 and will without a doubt be a massive success. Any way enough waiting. I give you the first trailer for the live-action film [Attack on Titan](movie:1001874).

It reflects heavily the first teaser trailers to be released for the anime when it started in early 2013. It is clear to see a lot of work has been put into this film and is likely to be considered a cult film from Japan much like Battle Royale.
