A brand-new trailer for the Japanese live-action Attack on Titan movie, adapted from Hajime Isayama's highly popular Attack on Titan manga, has been unleashed.
The trailer unveils the live-action version of the story's signature 3D maneuver gear, seen here in action for the first time, and you can see it below.

Have another look at the 3D maneuver gear in this shorter teaser trailer:
The Attack on Titan Japanese movies will be the first films to offer an immersive and thrilling 4D experience, using 4DX or MX4D to incorporate motion seats, scents and wind into the theatrical experience, in sync with what's happening on screen ... which will either make the movies all the more involving or come off as a gimmick that'll go the way of Smell-o-Vision. Stay tuned.
Attack on Titan will hit movie theaters in Japan on Aug. 1, with Attack on Titan: End of the World (aka Part 2) opening on Sept. 19.
