I’ve got a golden ticket, I’ve got a… actually, it’s just a white piece of paper, but it’s gold to me!
It’s my ticket from Fandango to see the Attack on Titan Movie: Part 1. I don’t usual buy my tix in advance, but when they say this film’s release is “limited”, they’re not kidding! Not only will AoT1 only screen in select theaters, it will only be shown on 3 (measly) days: Today (9/30), tomorrow (10/1), and Thursday October 7th.
So if you’ve been chomping at the bit to see AoT as much as I have, you’d be well served to get your tickets in advance too. To find a participating theater and lock down your seats, visit the official Attack on Titan Movie website: HERE.
Official 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 to more than 100 years later. What remains of the human population now live in relative peace behind massive walls that were erected to defend against the Titans. Yet, once again, that peace is shattered when a Titan measuring over 5o meters tall smashes through the wall, allowing a horde of other Titans to enter.
The Protagonist, Eren, had been resigned to 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 long rued not being able to save. The new recruits embark on a mission to obtain explosives, which have 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?
The 2-part saga, based on the popular manga and anime, is helmed by director Shinji Higuchi whose next project is a Japanese reboot of Godzilla—which makes a recent fan-film incredibly apropos.
Filmmaker Jordan Tseng released Part 1 of a 5-part tribute project that will culminate in an epic battle pitting the Colossal Titan against the iconic fire breather, Godzilla! The short film is made with action figures & produced in stop motion, giving it a retro feel. The end result is like being immersed in a child’s imagination as he plays with his toys. See for yourself:
Okay, it’s not exactly high art, but it’s a fun ride! And while we don’t actually see Colossal and Godzilla going toe-to-toe, we know the smackdown is eminent! We’ll keep you posted as future installments of Tseng’s film hit the internet!
Part 2 of the Attack on Titan Movie will also have a criminally limited US release later in October; it will only screen on October 20th, 22nd, and 27th.
