Even with the release dates I'm not that excited, given the history of live action anime adaptations I'm more fearfull of this being horrible than anything else.

I will watch it, but like most people I am concerned that it will be absolute garbage. I like the costumes and the actors look good, but it all comes down to the writing, the actors capability, and believable effects. I'm worried that it is coming out soon and the addition of new characters replacing ones that already exist kind of bothers me.

Here's hoping.

Personally, I'm still disappointed there's a Levi-like character that's not called Levi and that there's random new side characters. My only expectations for these movies are that they will at least be so bad they're good.

Why does one of them have an RPG?

Doesn't look good to me. In fact, part of me hopes that this would be a flop and Hollywood would be enticed to create a Western remake in the future. With either Peter Jackson, Gareth Edwards or Guillermo del Toro as the Director.

I'm glad to see I'm not alone in expressing negative hype that the film will not be good (although for me it's for a different reason).

Beside the 3 directors you listed, I want to add one more: Bong Joon Ho

After watching Snowpiercer, and The Host, I think Bong can also pull off the live-action Attack on Titan with a diverse cast like he did for Snowpiercer. If Bong or any of the director get to handle the live-action Attack on Titan in the future, I hope they get Logan Lerman as Eren. He's the only one that fit Eren:

Why would Hollywood pick up a flop? If anything, it has to be a success for Hollywood to look at it.

How much likely are you going to watch the movie? There should be a poll here.

Well, we got our people, but again it's interesting that they always add people that aren't in the initial work. Y'know AoT could make a pretty good table-top RPG like the old SW campaigns I used to play back in the day. But remember folks won't be able to know what's in the basement.

I had to laugh at some of the CR comments, as they expect Sasha to be done right. After all she IS the POTATO girl. So I'm looking forward to it.
