That's in my city but why the hell would I want to see the dub? Convince me why I should go, EGF.

1) Telling us if it's decent for an Eva dub.

2) Telling us if anything was edited from the showing.

Well strictly speaking, if they've actually made a print of the film on 35mm and aren't just playing the DVD played in a movie theater you will be seeing the best image quality version of Eva 1.0 on the planet!

Far better image quality, depth, and magic than anything Blu-Ray can give you. Even now the best way to see how a movie really looks is on film in a theater.

So call the theater and find out if it's on FILM.
Even if it is the dub it's a far better way to see it than the rest of non-Japanese located people can.

If it's just the DVD blown up large, forget it.

Well, I'd see it if I lived in Texas. I mean, sure, the dub might suck (but who knows, it might be good! What?!) ...but this is the sort of movie I want to see in a theater. I'm a bit tired of squinting at a computer screen.

Not entirely true. Film is great, but its quality can degrade overtime with scratches. Sometimes those machines can cause a nice scrape on a frame. Also, many times have I gone to a theater only to find out that the lens is out of focus on the edges.

They will not upscale the DVD. Chances are this will be a 2K Digital projection. 2K resolution is 2048x1080. Remember, 1.0 was rendered on computers. I doubt (though I could be wrong) that a 4K (3996x2160) render was made. Oh did you notice; 2K and 1080p have almost the same resolution. So you will get Blu-ray quality even if they project it in film.

Same here. It would be nice to see it in theaters and find out what the english dub is like ...if i only lived in Texas. :raincloud:

Arguably yes a film can downgrade over time with scratches (though I have a softness for the minute almost unoticeable ones) and also yes, if the theater is doing a shitty job that can ruin the image quality in a similar manner like a bad digital transfer.

BUT- if this showing was on film the print would be so fresh there'd be no scratches.

I should also mention that Film prints of Digital renders are used if the theater cannot accommodate Digital Cinema (i.e. a 2K/4K projector).

AFAIK all current blu-ray releases are 24-bit color, whereas digital projection is 36-bit color (i.e. far better contrast and clarity), and mastering for film is typically done with 48-bit color.

And any LCD TV is crap when compared to a professional digital projection system, as far as contrast goes.

Blu-ray is not theater quality, unless the theater is screwing something up.

Something tells me they have the wrong trailer up...

At least they're helping fans get excited about 2.0? :lol: Though fans that go see 1.0 and went onto that website are gonna be so confused why Asuka and the "new girl" aren't there....

I wonder what peoples' response to the dubbed voices will be. I wonder if they will be good.

I may go see it and write up a review of/thoughts on the dub for the front page. I'm 100% sub fan when it comes to almost anything, but I'll give my honest thoughts.

I'm still sore from the last time you said that to me.

I'm a fan of the dub, so a few of you might find my opinions to be of value. (You know who you are!)

I called Alamo Drafthouse today, to see when I could reserve tickets, and the lady I talked to had NO idea what I was talking about.

I'm also curious if Spike, Allison, or the director are showing up. Hmm..

well with one person for sub and one for dub, we should have a combined "objective" review for it

Hey Zap, just rip the original soundtrack and bring a good pair of soundproof headphones.
It'll be a unique theater experience... :tongue:

You guys who can actually see Evangelion in a theater should consider yourselves friggin' lucky. The closest I might ever be able to hope to get will be possibly screening the Rebuild Blu-Ray at my school. Zap, even if you hate dubs, seeing this in a theater is a once in a life time opportunity that you should not pass up. And as Axell suggested, you and Darkorb can offer us a balanced opinion since one of you likes dubs and the other doesn't.

Also, it'd be nice if we can get a confirmation as to whether or not this is actually 1.0, or if by some miracle it's actually 1.11 and Funimation simply mislabeled it. :tongue:
