I'm a bit curious about how this movie is gonna turn out.
1. They need a lot of CG
2. They need a foreign cast (Mikasa is the only Asian, plus she's only half)
3. A FREAKIN HUGE BUDGET

Do you think this movie will turn out bad or better than most live action movies? I think it may turn out good if they get a larger budget than most live action movies.

It's going to be bad and I'm praying for minimal damage to the franchise as a result.

Yeah, it would be great if the movie turned out like this fake poster.

Sure, but only if

1. They use a manuscript that was written by someone that was born and raised in Eastern Asia, to increase the probability that the movie will have some semblance of emotional value in it, or at the very least tension. Unlike if a Western wrote it, in which case I can guarantee you that the movie will end up like the latest G.I. Joe or Die Hard sequel. In other words, a never ending sequence of silly chases, silly explosions, and silly cliche type dialogues that leaves you confused once every 10 minutes thinking "Wait, what was this movie about again?"

2. They use American actors. Yup, I know that it might sound strange, Eastern actors, but you aren't supposed to make us feel like your emotions are an act. If you want to improve from how bad you are, and this is how bad you are, take a few lessons from the Bold And The Beautiful crew.

3. The director is not American or Asian. See, now I'm taking my generalization to new extremes. But I would rather have an unknown Swedish amateur direct the movie than let someone with Michael Bay's ego get in the way of the final result. I might give Christopher Nolan a pass, though, but I still have my doubts.

4. Graphics, costumes and makeup are American made. Nothing Eastern here what so ever, please. Because if I have to see another wig, or five months supply of hair gel wasted, or hair that's been dyed in odd contrasts, or God forbid another CGI Ryuk, I am going to scream, burn churches on fire, and launch a swarm of locust on all of Eastern Asia, while I damn the rest of the world for not shedding a thousand tears for every minute that Death Note stole. How can you not be upset? How can you not be infuriated? The madness.

You want a European, South American, Australian, or Canadian director instead of an American or Asian?

It would be horrible. And this is why: Attack on Titan is so gory, it would be rated NC-17 more than likely. Movie studios don't want to do even rated R films for movies like this, because they want to be able to capture the young audience as well as adults. So, immediately they would start slashing and watering down the most epic moments of the anime. (The death of Eren's mother, Eren's arm being severed while swallowed by a titan, Captain Levi's team being wiped out, etc...) The intense fight scenes between Eren and Annie, would be dumbed down. They'd do everything possible to get it rated PG-13.

More than that, the animation allows them to look really cool while moving on their 3D gear, but in live-action, those angles and those speeds would be impossible. They'd look more like Spiderman moving around, which would be lame and slow down the fights with the titans.

Lastly, the story is too complicated to be packed into a 90 minute live-action film. It's two season already and we still don't even know what the Titans are, where they come from, why they target humans, why some of them are different, what's Annie's whole deal, or even what's in Eren's basement. All the suspense and guesswork would be removed.

I wouldn't want to see a live-action of this. Some things only work in a Manga/Anime format.

Lol 2018!! Even though it's fake, gotta love that poster.
Saw one of the videos of making an attack on Titan live video, well it wasn't all that good even with CG. So it's still hard to say if it will turn out alright. But well they can try.

Far as film making, no hope for Japan or America but mostly America.
Nobody seems to care about America most of the time.

WHATS IN THE FREAKIN BASEMENT!?

Hollywood would destroy the movie. As said, they tend to take great material, and crap out PG13ees by the truckload. You'd have hundreds of 'dead-cut' edits. Every death/kill would be like 'AWESO-NOPE [black screen]'. It's fun to fantasize that an epic could hit the silver screen, but I wholly doubt it.

i dont think Hollywood is as bad as everyone is making it out to be. personally i think Hollywood would be the only place that this story could be told with the proper budget. i have seen more than a handful of Asian cinema big budget special effects films, and while good, they lack the real financial power to create the effects that they would need for this movie.

as for everything else though? i feel that Japan is finally starting to get a grasp on it's strengths in movies again. with adaptations from manga and anime we have had several good adaptations but they have been primarily tokusatsu style action or martial arts (Gatchaman and Rurouni Kenshin) so the necessary budget for those films was way lower than what would be a Pacific Rim style/type movie.

the only other option i can really see working out would be if they could come up with a way to make the man in a suit style costume and overlays with the actors...im just not seeing it. we would need some ridiculously cool effects for the soldiers using the 3D gear and i just dont see a way that a Japanese film could create effects as good as any that we have seen in the Spider Man films...which is exactly what they would need.

Come on, man. If you're going to act snarky, at least know what you're talking about. Movies get NC-17 ratings for "Extreme Bloody or Horror Violence." A lot of rated R movies are edited to be watered down from the original Rated NC-17 they received by cutting out extreme graphic violence. Some examples are American Psycho, The Hills Have Eyes, Army of Darkness and The Boondock Saints.

NONE of those movies, had scenes where a woman was being eaten in half by a giant with her guts squirting out all over a neighborhood, or a one-armed man swimming inside of the guts of a titan filed with partially digested bodies, or a captain having his entire body eaten with his head popping out of the mouth of a titan. Attack on Titan, as is, would easily get an NC-17 rating from the MPAA. No question.
