The fine folks at Japanator have unveiled the screening schedule for the new Evangelion movie, Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone, and it looks like unless you live in Canada, you’re more or less out of luck. Luckily, I LIVE IN CANADA. So: yay! I’ll see you September 30th for the screening! The film will also be showing at Comic-Con in July. For the full schedule, visit Japanator.
Evangelion 1.0 is the first of four new movies that reimagines the 26 epsiodes + 6 episodes + 2 films that made up the original Neon Genesis Evangelion storyline. Said to cut out the filler, introduce some lovely new animation, and generally just bilk hardcore fans out of Even More money to feed their awful animation fetish, the films have been very well-received overseas. I imagine the same will happen here.
Hah, I just checked Wikipedia and the second film in the tetrology, Evangelion 2.0: You Will (Not) Advance will be opening in Japan June 27th… While I’m there. It looks like I’ll be able to take even more Evangelion photos while I’m there, and buy even more weird Eva stuff. Whoo hoo!
