Seriously??? That's.....very not good for its prospects.

Make a bad movie... and the general audience will find out.

Sure, but even ones that don't seem that well received like Gantz did well enough. Given the comparative popularity of AoT, I just expected more.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the film has made $11.5 million dollars thus far. If it really cost $30+ million, I don't exactly see it doing well in the long run. Especially since there is an equally expensive sequel debuting next month. Good will seems to be gone. Hopefully Toho learns from this and does better with Godzilla.

Nah! The AIT property has enough international fan base that they will make up the difference in overseas DVD sales alone. Making back its production costs will be trivial. It's just it won't be the massive hit they hoped for, so diminished returns. The biggest fear we have is some studio or network clown looks at AOT and says "well no one liked AOT so these overseas people won't like Godzilla either!" Remember we missed the back half of the Heisei era for years because of fools like that.

I actually watched this tonight.

Loved it - would give it a 7/10. I can see why people wanting a faithful adaptation of the source material were upset, but I didn't care much about the changes made. The characters are close enough and the effects were pretty good - the Colossal Titan was awesome and the rest of the Titans were terrifying.

Pretty much this! Really enjoyed it, can't wait for part 2

No, not necessarily. Depends on what the deal they signed with Funimation was.

As of the 24th, it has made a bit less than $22M in Japan.

In the sixth spot, live-action manga adaptation Attack on Titan has now taken $21.7 million (¥1.4 billion) from 2.62 million tickets after four weekends.

Does anyone think this film is the right choice to screen at a convention with people of all ages, mainly college students? Would general audiences enjoy it, even if it's just for the sake of watching it on the big screen with other people?

I think the general audience will love this concept.

I want Kong v Godzilla To Be like BvS but...y'know, better critically received. With Mothra filling the role of Wonder Woman and Ghidorah filling the role of Doomsday. Here's to hoping. :D

Sadly, I don't think so. people would laugh at it, because "hurr durr suits" and it being Japanese. One reason I'm a little apprehensive to see it in the theater

I was thinking about using it, so I was looking for thoughts around here before presenting it to higher ups next week.

That's what I want to know. Will it get a limited US theatrical release or go straight to video?

The first movie is being released in the US on September 30th, the second movie on October 20th.

The catch is that each movie is only playing for a few days.

Part 1: September 30th, October 1st, and October 7th in the U.S.; October 5th and 26th in Canada
Part 2: October 20th, 22nd, and 27th in the U.S.; October 22nd and 26th in Canada

The official site has started selling tickets (and more importantly, it has a theater locator).

Never cared about manga or anime versions, but a live-action movie with legions of man-eating giants in a post-apocalyptic world? What's not to like, I said to myself and went to watch this...

Holy skreeonk, I'm impressed. Yes, the movie could've overall been better (it felt rushed, characters are underdeveloped, the CGI isn't always realistic, and I could go on...), but I absolutely love all the Titan sequences. I've always found zombies very scary...how they're always hungry, how they have only a single weak spot on the body and how there is always too many of them, you can never kill em all. And those Titans here are like giant, non-rotten zombies, who just don't eat you because of instinct, but they look like they're ENJOYING doing so! Super creepy stuff, genuinely scary.

The dystopian civilization, where almost all resources are lacking, was also done well, and characters (while underdeveloped, as I mentioned above) are mostly sympathetic. I really liked that badass dude, who chopped down Titans' ankles with a double-handed axe.

Really looking forward to second part, and I guess I got to check out the anime as well. Hope I won't be dissapointed.

I thought this movie was silly at best. The very end was worth it, though. Unflattering teal garbage otherwise.

Huh. In the intro flash video, the same guy got two different quotes :)
