New live-action Attack on Titan trailer delivers some gloriously epic, giant footage

A new trailer for that live-action Attack on Titan movie has made its way online, and it looks gloriously epic. The upcoming movie from director Shinji Higuchis is based on a successful Japanese Manga series by Hajime Isayame. The franchise is so popular, it's already spawned an anime TV series and a couple of videogames.

The gist of the story is this: A century ago, titans suddenly appeared on Earth. Because of those big, bad giant, (and I mean GIANT) meanies, human civilization as we know found itself on the brink of collapse. Humans then built massive, giant walls to defend themselves, and managed to live in relative peace inside them...until the wall is broken after 100 years and the titans start to chomp on people again. Good times. Check out the new trailer:

Attack on Titan will hit movie theaters in Japan on August 8.
