The colossal wait is over.

When it was announced that Japan would be releasing the live action movie of the popular anime and graphic novel, Attack on Titan this fall, many of us figured that it would be a long wait for the film to arrive here in the United States. But thankfully, it has just been announced that the film will be reaching US theaters on September 30th for a limited engagement and Part 2 of the film will be released in October. For fans of both the show and the novels, this is huge news.

The people at FUNimation announced that the live-action adaptation,  will open here in the States on September 30th and then the sequel will then open in limited theaters on October 20th. 

Below is both US trailers and the synopsis for the films.

“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 more than 100 years later. What remains of the human population now live in relative peace behind massive walls that were erected to defend themselves against the Titans. Yet, once again, that peace is shattered when a Titan measuring over 50 meters tall smashes through the wall, allowing a horde of other Titans to enter. The protagonist, Eren, had been resigned to a 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 had long rued not being able to save. The new recruits embark on a mission to obtain explosives, which had 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?”
