A set of character posters have just been released for the life-action film adaptation of Isayama Hajime’s cult hit manga Attack On Titans ( Shingeki No Kyojin ). The costumes and weapons look pretty faithful to the original designs from the manga and anime, but I’m not sure if l like the tacky lens flares.
(above) Mikasa, a hot favourite among Shingeki fans is played by actress Mizuhara Kiko – check out this pictorial of hers photographed by Sakuran director Ninagawa Mika.
I’m usually against the idea of Japanese originals been turned into international remakes but perhaps Attack On Titans is an exception; the story’s universe can certainly benefit from a bigger production/vfx budget and an international cast. Perhaps if the Japanese adaptation gains enough traction this may yet happen.
