Attack on Titan (進撃の巨人,   Shingeki no Kyojin?) is a two-part live action 2015 tokusatsu kaiju film co-produced by Kodansha, Licri, Nikkatsu Corporation, and Toho Company Ltd., based on the popular manga and anime series created by Hajime Isayama.


100 years ago, gigantic man-eating monsters called Titans appeared on the Earth, bringing human civilization to the brink of collapse. The remaining humans constructed a gigantic wall to surround themselves and keep the Titans out. After an entire century of peace, a gigantic Titan suddenly appears and destroys the wall, allowing the hordes of Titans to threaten humanity once again.

Foreign Releases

On June 29, 2015, FUNimation Entertainment, the same company that distributed the Attack on Titan anime in the United States, announced that it had acquired the American distribution rights for the film from Toho. FUNimation announced that the world premiere of the film would be held on July 14 in Los Angeles, and that both parts of the film would be released in theaters across North, Central, and South America in the fall.[1] FUNimation later confirmed that Part 1 would be released on September 30, while Part 2 would be released on October 30.

Additionally, Madman, who has distributed many of the Godzilla films in Australia in the past, acquired the rights to release the film theatrically in Australia and New Zealand in August 2015.[2]


To tie in with the film, Toho announced a special three-part miniseries, Attack on Titan: Beacon for Counterattack, which aired on the Japanese channel dTV on August 15. The series focuses on the character Hange Zoe, a scientist who is obsessed with studying the Titans.

Box Office

Part 1 of Attack on Titan opened at number one at the Japanese box office, beating out Universal Pictures' Minions and earning ¥603,000,000 (approximately $4,860,000) over its opening weekend.[3]


Reception to part 1 of the film has so far been mostly positive among the Japanese moviegoing public, however many fans of the anime and manga series have criticized the amount of liberties taken with the source material, most notably making the entire cast Japanese rather than mostly European as in the manga and anime, as well as removing many iconic characters such as Levi, and recasting Mikasa as Eren's girlfriend, rather than his adoptive sister.
