So, a live-action Attack on Titan movie is being made in Japan. And in case the spot where it's being filmed wasn't enough of a hint, these new posters revealing the cast in costume show it won't be set in the manga/anime's medieval-ish world.

Instead, it appears to be set in a more modern post-apocalyptic location. Which would be a pretty drastic change, I guess, but then these costumes are also pretty authentic (RPGs aside) to the source material, so who knows what's going on.

The movie stars Miura Haruma as Eren, Mizuhara Kiko as Mikasa, Shu Watanabe as Fukushi, Ayame Misaki as Hiana, and Rina Takeda as Lil (those last three being new characters, maybe because the cast is all-Japanese instead of the manga/anime's more international lineup).
