Limited Theatrical Release to Screen in Two Parts in Nearly 300 Theaters Across U.S. and Canada
FLOWER MOUND, TEXAS – August 28, 2015. FUNimation Entertainment announced today that tickets for the “Attack on Titan” live action movies are now available for purchase via the official movie website AttackOnTitanTheMovie.com. The new, two-part feature film is a limited theatrical release and will screen in nearly 300 theaters across the United States and Canada. In the U.S., Part 1 will play in theaters on September 30, October 1 & 7 and has an approximate running time of 98 minutes; and Part 2 will screen two weeks later on October 20, 22 & 27 and has an approximate running time of 87 minutes. In Canada, Part 1 will play in theaters on October 5 and 26 followed by Part 2 on October 22 and October 26.
“The day Attack on Titan fans across North America have been waiting for has finally arrived. This is a limited theatrical release so I encourage fans to find their nearest theater and purchase tickets to both movies now,“ said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and founder of FUNimation. “A movie as colossal as Attack on Titan truly takes two parts to tell. Fans do not want to miss this opportunity.”
The “Attack on Titan” live action movies are based on the popular manga series of the same name (“Shingeki no Kyojin” in Japanese), which tells the story of a world where most of humanity has been destroyed by giants and where the last of mankind fights to survive behind three concentric walls – walls that were once impenetrable to the giants. With more than 50 million copies in print today, “Attack on Titan” has also inspired four spin-off manga as well as a 25-episode anime series which FUNimation both simulcast and released on home video in North America.
“We wanted to make sure that we could bring Attack on Titan to as many fans as possible and we’ve put together a great network of theatrical partners to do just that,“ said Mike DuBoise, COO of FUNimation. “That said, we know Attack on Titan will draw in people new to anime as well as fans of other genres like horror and sci-fi. This movie will not disappoint.”
As part of the ticket sales launch, the new version of the official movie website will go live that includes a theater locator, additional movie info and cast posters, the theatrical trailers as well as extras including photo galleries from the movie, the world premiere in July and fan fun.

When we unveiled our exclusive Attack on Titan, Part Two Collector’s Edition configuration a little while ago the biggest demand we heard from fans was a request for the Ender Box to also be included in the Limited Edition release. The Ender Box is a hard chipboard box that can house both your Part One and Part Two Limited Edition releases (see image above).
Well, you asked and we listened. There are now TWO Attack on Titan, Part Two Limited Edition listings available in our Shop for fans. One will include the Ender Box, for those fans who want the chipboard box to hold their Limited Edition releases, and one without the Ender Box. Please note that the addition of the Ender Box will increase the price of the Limited Edition set slightly. Click here to get Attack on Titan, Part Two PLUS Box.
We always strive to provide the best for our fans, and thanks to your feedback, we are pleased that we will now be able to offer you this alternative listing. Attack on Titan, Part Two will be available on Sept. 23rd.
