ATTACK ON TITAN Part 1 in Australia & New Zealand Cinemas August 27–September 9
Based on the smash hit anime and manga series, Part 1 of the ATTACK ON TITAN (進撃の巨人, Shingeki no Kyojin, 2015) films stomps into cinemas across Australia and New Zealand, courtesy of Madman Entertainment!
Japan, present day. 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 100 years. What remains of the human population now survives in relative peace behind massive walls erected in defense against the Titans. That peace is shattered when a Colossal Titan, measuring over 50 meters tall, smashes through the wall and allows a horde of other Titans to enter.
Eren Yeager had resigned himself 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. The new recruits embark on a mission to plug the gaping hole in the wall and stop the waves of titans once and for all. With humanity’s survival on the line, will there be a future for Eren and Mikasa, and for mankind itself?
In cinemas in Australia and New Zealand from August 27 – September 9 (Part 2 coming late 2015). Don’t miss this limited theatrical season. For a full list of locations, visit the official site at attackontitanmovie.com.au.
