It has been a while since I have done a Netflix Pick OF The Week, its not intentional, there is just so much news for one dude to keep up with and sometimes some of my regular posts suffer because of this, but I’m sure you guys won’t loose any sleep over it 🙂
So, I am gonna start the Netflix picks all over again and hereby promise you a fresh new title or series every week.
This week, and a first on Moviehooker is a Manga series called Attack On Titan.
Later this year we will be getting a live-action adaptation, which just looks like it’s gonna be outta this world. A small trailer was released last week and it took the internet by storm. It left everyone who seen it gagging for more, so I can’t imagine a full trailer will be far behind.
The story is set sometime after huge human-like giants have fallen from the sky. They immediately start munching on the humans, picking them up and eating them, just like you’d imagine giants would do. The giants are all naked and look almost like we do, they all have a twisted grin on their face which made believe that they are just eating the humans, cause they are sadistic big fuckers. Fast-forward sometime and all of humanity has been nearly wiped out with the giants showing no signs of slowing down.
The remaining survivors have built themselves some huge walls, and live within their new walled city, hoping that the Titans won’t attack again…..guess what though, they do!!
I really don’t want to give away too much of the plot but I’ll just say that some humans decide to fight back using new invented weaponry, that lets them move at a ridiculous speed , cut corners, climb walls. It almost like they have Spider-Man abilities.
There is much more to the giants than I have told you..but I do hope that this has given you enough info to say ‘holy fucking fuck, that storyline sounds un-fucking real’… because, you wouldn’t be wrong, its quite fucking epic to say the least.
I have also found a few new images that I have never seen from the live-action adaptation that will be released later this year. I have no idea how long they have been around the net but I thought I would share them with you anyways.
HERE IS THE TRAILER FOR THE LIVE-ACTION ADAPTATION JUST IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
