There are also multiple talks on Twitter JPN of possible 3.0+1.0 spoilers... Khara themselves have advised fans to avoid spoilers.
This is how it all begins.

Hah, I was just going to post about that. Khara's Tweet warning that fans should start Muting to avoid spoilers:


Supposedly today's Second Screening (unlike the First Screening where the sketch-like group poster came from) allowed people besides Staff to view it, sooooo :bigeyes: Everyone, please keep safe if you're going in blind :heart:

On another note (sorry if this was already discussed):

To put things in perspective many people at khara (especially our man Anno himself) spent a good chunk of their lives working on Rebuild, it was the very reason the studio was established in the first place. Being able to finish Shin Eva and see it with their very own eyes must've been an amazingly emotional experience.

It's an important turning point for khara now that they've finished Rebuild in its entirety, where will they go from here? How will they sustain themselves in the future especially in uncertain times like this after Eva is done? It's childhood's end for them. Whether we'll share the same opinion or not about Shin and Rebuild with these people is something we'll have to determine ourselves once we've seen the film, but I'd let them bask in the glory of their own fruit of labor, they really deserve it. It's very much reflected in Gendo's Papa's interpretation of Mahiro Maeda's poster, which I absolutely love:
View Original PostGendo'sPapa wrote:It's funny to see everyone here looking for subtle "plot clues" and the artwork is Shinji and the Eva cast getting together to have a picnic to stare at Unit 01 (the movie) and Shinji is invited the viewer (the artists who made the film) to come join their picnic (seeing the completed movie in a theater together).



Please refrain from double posting, use the edit function instead - robersora


By the way, @tyuukeikerokero on Twitter wrote an impression about 3.33's 4D release and it was seem to be handled thoughtfully despite the initial worry that the film isn't something you'd expect to work well in that format, here's the gist of it:

- Scenes with only sounds of piano echoing (probably Kaworu's introduction and the one where Shinji was sulking alone in NERV's ruins) were really well done in 4D audio, it adds a greater sense of loneliness.
- The theater room is shaking violently during fight scenes, as if you're in a vehicle accident. (DAMN!)
- There's a vibration everytime a character walks *except* Kaworu. It's quite creepy when you think about it.
- The audience gets splashed with water everytime an Angel dies (can't imagine how wet they get when Lilith explodes :w00t: ), but there's no splashing when Kaworu's head explodes. They thought it was very clever because there's an invisible cokcpit barrier so Shinji doesn't get splashed with Kaworu's blood.

Overall, they thought whoever did the 4D convert understood Eva really well and the overall experience was different from 1.11 and 2.22, it was very "sad and immersive".

Yeah, it sounds like an interesting experience. Some of my favorite parts in 3.0 are the quieter moments so it's fun to hear that they're being handled cleverly in a gimmicky format.

Thanks for editing my post by the way! Kinda expected that would happen since I really just realized I shouldn't make double post right after I turned off my laptop :nyao:

I've brazenly taken the liberty to ask them to not forget about us poor Europeans, and he actually responded!

I said (to best of my broken Japanese ability): Please don't forget about Europe! Thank You very much!
He responded:
"(We) don't forget about Europe
"(We/I) wish you the best!
(We) hope to release it in a safe manner!"

Less assured than his statement about the American release, but nice to see we're being heard.

I'd actually be pretty sad if it comes out in North America soon as there's no way I'd personally be able to see it safely.

Granted, Canada has a different approach to Covid-19, so he really might just mean the USA where certain states literally just don't care anymore.
I mean, predictability is the central attraction and the narrative hook that we've all come to expect from the Evangelion franchise. How come Anno can't realize this? Twice? - FreakyFilmFan4ever

I didn't care when I spoiled 3.0 for myself and I don't care now either. Gonna lurk Twitter and other places to find spoilers this holiday.

Both 1.0 and 2.0 each were screened for a very brief time in Indonesia and I have the DVDs too (local release, the audio and video quality suck BIG time), but 3.0 never gets any kind of release until now, despite the fact that it was officially registered by the local film classification board.

I'm out holding on any hopes of seeing Shin on the big screen now, unless the film made enough buzz on the JP box office to attract local distributors and bring the film here with a big "#1 Japan BOX OFFICE SMASH HIT" on the poster like what they're doing with Kimetsu no Yaiba movie. :D

EDIT:
It's the last day of preview screeening, with a total of six showings in two venues! I wonder if they also invited media people considering the 2nd day screeening also had people who aren't directly a part of the production like from ATAC etc., hence the spoiler warning in case there's a slip of the tongue.

Europe is in a bad way currently, I mean here in the U.K. it’s pretty much hell.

Even if they shipped it over here, there’s no place to show it unless it’s a drive in cinema.

But if they are already planning a covid safe US screening that means they should of already organised English subtitles for it

Here we go lads, 3.3333 and Shin Eva will have back-to-back midnight IMAX showings in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Fukuoka, and Sapporo! The screenings will start exactly on January 23, 00:00AM, so it's pretty much the film's world premiere. It's going to be one hell of a night for anyone who gets to go, for sure.

We're SO close in getting a runtime reveal now that theaters will surely begin listing showtimes, I'm so nervous. :nyao: Some people on JP twitter are speculating that the film is 130-150 minutes long because the tweets from morning staff screening starts showing up from around 9:00AM and the "impression tweets" on 11:45AM, but we'll see!

EDIT:
Dan Kanemitsu calling Shin "4.0", lol.

I was trying to see if the runtime could be deduced like this as well, but it doesn't seem that easy because they have also said that there are 6 showtimes a day split between two theaters.

Plus a lot of tweets are coming quite sometime after the fact, being that all the pictures I have seen are during daylight, while some of the people actually tweeting them in Japan are doing it once it's already dark outside here.
