The commercial may be an example of what to expect in an upcoming Attack On Titan live-action film.
A Subaru Forester commercial collaborated with the creators of a future Attack on Titan live-action film, giving viewers a glimpse as to what next year’s movie could look like. The commercial features three Titans, one male Titan, one female Titan, and the colossal Titan.
In the commercial, the Titans attempt to swat the car as it somehow escapes unscathed without the help of the three-dimensional maneuver gear.
Special effects are a must have for a real Titan transformation. Using a green screen and makeup, two actors are transformed into the Titans. Anime News Network reports that it took four hours to apply the female Titan’s makeup, giving her ratty hair and a crazy smile, along with all of the dirt over her body. A behind the scenes video shows what the actor looked like before and after the makeup was applied. In addition, the commercial used a model of the colossal Titan’s upper body, which was about six feet tall and required seven people to control it.
Shinji Higuchi, the Attack On Titan live-action film director worked on the commercial. The staff has not decided if the Titans in the film will look like they do in the commercial, but Higuchi saw work on the commercial as a preview of what to expect.
In Hajime Isayama’s Attack On Titan manga, humanity lives inside walls constructed to protect them from the forces of the deadly Titans who devour humans. One day the colossal Titan break through the wall and changes the lives of Eren Yeager, Mikasa Ackerman, and Armin Arlert as they train to fight the Titans. The manga inspired a 25-episode anime adaptation last year.
