Regular readers of Horror Freak News know I’m not a huge fan of anime, but I have mad love for Attack on Titan. The series, distributed in America by Funimation, has amassed an enviable following over 2 seasons, with a third currently in post-production. Attack on Titan is a potent blend of low-tech sci-fi, alternate histories, and relentless body horror.

Yesterday brought news that Funimation has big plans for unfurling Season 3, one that includes theatrical screenings proceeded by a Season 2 recap.
We got the 411 from Dread Central:
To celebrate the upcoming release of its third season, the world premiere of Attack on Titan: Season 3 will become a theatrical event in conjunction with a season two recap film titled Attack on Titan Season 2: Roar of Awakening. The combined events will have a runtime of nearly 2.5 hours and the dates for the event are July 10 and 11. The former date will see the event screened in Japanese with English subtitles and the latter will be an English dubbed version (aka see the first option). This event will take place almost two weeks before the third season TV debut in Japan on July 22.

And check out the trailer and synopsis for Attack on Titan Season 2 below.
Official Synopsis: When man-eating Titans first appeared 100 years ago, humans found safety behind massive walls that stopped the giants in their tracks. But the safety they have had for so long is threatened when a colossal Titan smashes through the barriers, causing a flood of the giants into what had been the humans’ safe zone. During the carnage that follows, soldier Eren Jaeger sees one of the creatures devour his mother, which leads him to vow that he will kill every Titan. He enlists some friends who survived to help him, and that group is humanity’s last hope for avoiding extinction at the hands of the monsters.
