Been reading on the film and I'm kinda fascinated to learn that:


SPOILER: Show
Shin Ultraman, Shin Kamen Rider, and Shin Godzilla might share a universe? Most people are saying it's confirmed at the end, but it's still early so I can't confirm it's true. If it is true, seeing as the Eva gang end up in the real world at the end of Thrice, I suppose even they might be in the universe too.
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

First minute was posted by Toho. Interesting to see the "shin" takes on Ultra Q kaiju, particularly Gomess. Does anyone here know what the Japanese subtitles are saying?

Saw this translation on Twitter and seems reliable:

North American theatrical release! (Canada only, it seems.)

The 2022 New York Asian Film Festival (NYAFF) will be screening Shin Ultraman in NYC next month and Shinji Higuchi will be present.
I don't think a full schedule with times and dates has been released yet but the festival runs from July 15-31st.

Normally I'd have booked a ticket to NYC already but 2022 has not been kind financially. Oh well. That's the freelance life.

Also, I think the entire soundtrack was released on Youtube. I pre-ordered a copy of the disc - should get it next week when it releases - and I haven't listened to all the tracks but I'm sure Ultraman fans - this movie will be my first UltraExperience - will get a kick out of the music and there are some definite Sagisu bangers in there:

Would be pretty cool if it comes to Spain or Germany so I can watch it.

It's funny this is maybe the first time an Anno film is technically eligible for an Oscar due to the fast overseas premiere...but I think we all know Ultraman won't be on their radar lol. Not like I know what the quality of the film is. Just saying.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"
-Asuka: THINK IN GERMAN!!! -Shinji: Öh... Baumkuchen...

First 10 1/2 minutes of SHIN ULTRAMAN are up on Youtube for the next 48 hours. Pretty sweet stuff!

∆ Nice!
Let's see if someone subtitles it too.


First minute and half are subbed.
https://youtu.be/hb2SGuE5l2s

SPOILER: Show
What's funny here is in the original Ultraman, Godzilla's suit was reused, with very slight changes, barely hiding that it was just Godzilla. It seems Shin Godzilla got the same treatment. I like how the first shot is of Shin's eye doing that thing that it does. Also what a rapid fire start to the film. Editing is very Anno, and well, he is credited as editor.

-----------------
Edit:
SPOILER: Show
Just realized Shin Ultraman treats Shin Godzilla like its version of Ultra Q. Ultra Q came before Ultraman, with the second being a sort if spiritual succesor. In the opening to Ultraman, the Ultra Q logo gets substituted by the Ultraman logo each episode. The exact same is done here with Shin Godzilla->Shin Ultraman.


-----
Edit2:
SPOILER: Show
Ultraman DID reuse Godzilla's suit, but actually the Godzilla-like monster is Gomes, which had its origin in UltraQ. So yeah there's more than one not-Godzilla

Also, the way the first minute and a half goes, it's like they're redoing Shin Godzilla, like that film is a pseudo-prequel to Shin Ultraman. Kast monster in that initial montage even gets frozen.
Shinji: "Sooner or later I'll be betrayed... And they'll leave me. Still... I want to meet them again, because I believe my feelings at that time were real."
Ryuko: "I'm gonna knock ya on your asses!"

Apparently this is from the Shin Ultraman booklet, can anyone confirm?

Machine translation says Tsurumaki is working on something under Anno's supervision and in Khara after they're finished with Shin Kamen Raider.

Not sure about this, especially since I've been away from the loop about any Shin Ultraman or related news. But if this is true, the "Shin Japan Heroes Universe" thing might be more than a mere merch collab, but that's just pure speculation.

One of the odd details that's bugged me lies in turning the original Ultraman's Shin Hayata into Shinji Kaminaga. The name is really weird when I look up the Kanji for Kaminaga(神永 - God Eternity) and Shinji (新二 New Two,Twice). This sounds suspiciously like Anno and Shinji (Higuchi) playing games with words. The other oddity was having Toho in Shin Evangelion alongside Toei. A Marvel-style shared universe seems superficially plausible for Shin Ultraman, Kamen Rider and Godzilla, although I'm very curious to see if they have some way of squeezing Shin Evangelion into that - or if this is just a result of me having come off of watching Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.
