Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

The biggest difference in announcements between this film and the last three is unlike before this film is being distributed by Toho & Toei. This film is a huge part of their annual calendar. Their involvement will require Khara be more forthcoming with release data then before. Toho+Toei being ...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

June 6, 2020 is a Saturday and all three previous Rebuilds were released in Japan on a Saturday so it is possible. But lately it looks to me like Japan has switched to Friday being the day they release films nationwide so who knows. Someone with better knowledge of the Japanese film industry may be ...

Re: [Film] The Trailers & Upcoming Films Thread

COWBOY BEBOP the Live Action Series is, at best, going to be okay. It will not come close to even being in the same realm as the anime series....

But Ein guarantees I'll watch a couple episodes.

Re: Imaishi and Nakashima are back - Promare

Gurren Lagan has the best story because the pacing of the narrative is solid throughout and the massive jumps in scale work with the thematic through line of human evolution always advancing and moving on to larger things. The fact the show essentially solidly reinvented itself every 7 episodes help...

Re: Imaishi and Nakashima are back - Promare

The story was a mess. The characters were empty vessels ( though excellent character design, I get why Lio is such a hit at the moment, he may have zero personality but his appearance is stylish and lovable ). But, when the animation is that fun and the team making it is having such a great and infe...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

I would like to say Yes but having seen how toxic being "the Number One Fan" of anything makes people I'd have to say no.

Love the series and the films and they changed my life for the better. But Number One Fan in the world? That's a level I could not achieve.

Re: Trailer 2 discussion thread

We saw even less of what was going to be in 3.0 from all the early marketing for that film. There's A LOT of surprises to come in the final film.

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Media

Newly released Trailer 2.5. It's mostly the same trailer as before as far as I can tell BUT this is without the text inter-titles and at 0:27 is a new shot of Unit 08. Oddly enough this new Unit-08y shot replaces the Spooky Fuyutsuki & Giant Eye from the original cut of the trailer. https://www....

Sagisu did the music for Higuchi's two live-action Attack on Titan films so I think him working on this is (almost) guaranteed.

Re: Shin Ultraman

The June 2020 release is happening for Eva Final. They've already started marketing it. Toho & Toei won't allow that to change. That's a concrete set release month. Though Anno writing the Ultraman script could theoretically have slowed down production of the final Eva film at some point in 2017...

Re: Shin Ultraman

So there was a lot of truth to that rumor from a few months ago. Only major falsehood was that Anno was not going to delay the final Evangelion film to do it. Fascinating. If the plan really is to make a 2021 release - probably a Summer release - that's a VERY QUICK turnaround for Anno. I imagine Sh...

Re: Trailer 2 discussion thread

^ The marketing for the Rebuilds has always put the action front and center with small glimpses of the character work. Most of the marketing for 3.0 all circled around the retrieval of Unit 01... the first six or so minutes of the movie. Very little of the core of the film - Shinji’s breakdown and i...

Re: Trailer 2 discussion thread

No real way to tell how the long movie is dependent on the scene numbering I would say. If the Sn markers are indeed scene designator then all 10 minutes and 40 seconds of the Avant 1 material shown makes up just Scene 01 and the second scene starts with the pilots in the wild. Some scenes may just ...

Re: "New Unit 02"

No mention of the Unit 08+02 that was the centerpiece of the original 2012 teaser has been made since. In fact if the new teaser is showing material from the third act it’s likely Asuka in Unit 02 and Mari in Unit 08 head into the final battle separately. If the Unit 08+02 idea hasn’t been completel...

Re: Shin Eva - Official Social Medi

A big thing we’re seeing here is the involvement of Togo & Toei now that they’re part of the production. While we won’t be spoiled on the story I think there will be less guessing and surprise announcements over the next year. I think the marketing roll out will be more “traditional” to a point....

Has anyone pointed out the new trailer for the Final Evangelion Film was released on the 22nd anniversary of the original Final Evangelion film - The End of Evangelion?
