[MOVIE] September 23 – “Attack on Titan 2: End of the World”
The first “Attack on Titan” movie left the world hanging for a concluding movie that will put an end to the flesh-eating giants that devoured most of mankind. After the movie’s extremely successful box-office bow, the second installment immediately follows entitled “Attack on Titan 2: End of the World” is about to unfold in local cinemas this September 23.
From Studio Toho and acclaimed Japanese director Shinji Higuchi and written by Yusuke Watanabe, the second movie adaptation brings the movie’s heroes in a much larger than life intense challenge on their counterattack against the Titans in order to survive.
“Attack on Titan 2: End of the World” picks up where the first movie left off where the newly trained group of soldiers have learned to use the “Maneuver Gear” to fight against the Titans and where Eren mysteriously survived after being eaten by a Titan. Eren and the others set out on a mission to restore the Wall that had been destroyed by a colossal Titan, but they’re suddenly faced with a quagmire when they’re attacked by a horde of Titans. Shikishima, the Titan-slaying captain of the Scout Regiment, arrives to save the day, but the Titans show no sign of letting up. During the battle, Eren is badly injured, and in the process of saving his friend Armin, he’s swallowed whole by a Titan. Just as all hope seems to be lost, a mysterious Titan with black hair suddenly appears and begins annihilating the other Titans. If this mission fails, it will spell the end of humanity. Why did the Titans appear? Why do people continue to fight? The last counterattack to save human civilization is about to begin.
The Manga’s success created by Hajime Isayama has sold over 50 million volumes with critics praising its frenetic, apocalyptic exciting plot. The second installment further sees the naked smiling-stoned giants continuously attacking and devouring people while the heroes wait desperately on the perfect time to attack them.
Fight and challenge mankind’s doomed destiny in “Attack on Titan 2: End of the World” when it opens in cinemas on September 23 from Pioneer Films.
