I think the OST should fall under apoilers honestly. It could potentially say a lot about the movie.
Like if someone is like "I love all those super happy and upbeat songs in the latter half", that would imply a lot.

But just my opinion.
I'll probably be gone anyway until the film is out on home video.

That is what the OST is meant to do. But it is available internationally, and why continue to keep it under spoilers when anyone anywhere in the world can enjoy it come March 17? If someone were to match a song to a scene, it would be spoilery, but if someone were to speculate on what was going on based on the OST, that would not really spoil anything!

I can't really agree with that.
There is a reason the OST doesn't come out before or the same day as the movie in Japan (even though it was ready in january). It's meant to be something you listen to having seen the film, something (in theory) us outside Japan can't do.

But in that case the spoiler policy doesn't cover something I definitely consider a spoiler. I know that's probably different for everyone though.

How was this during 3.0 days?

However I don't want to limit what people wanna talk about, even if I really don't agree. I think I'm generally taking an EGF/all things Eva break till I can see the film.

You are welcome to have your own personal spoiler policy and stick to it.

I don't think that the OST will contain a ton of spoilers, as NTE music has always been rather..... vague in its titles and contents. Think of Q, even the more expressive songs like Ultimate Soldier and The Wrath of God in all its Fury don't exactly reveal anything about what's going on in the film

I think it's pinned to every thread in the forum.
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 am so, so sorry! This thread is a global announcement but it was originally posted in the 3.0 + 1.0 subforum. I forgot to move it to the main Rebuild subforum!

Everybody has to enter the password every time the session expires, no exceptions. That's just the way the software is set up.

Is there any idea when we're going to see this release in American theaters? Either my googlefu is lacking or there's nothing on the internet telling us when.

Just as a reminder - the 10 minute AVANT 1 version screened in 2019 is not a spoiler.

However, we're treating the 12 minute version screened at the premiere, featuring additional details and 2 minutes of new footage, as a spoiler. Simply put, the 12-minute Shin Eva premiere falls under the spoiler policy.

Spoiler tags and the hide function don't exist so that you can post gratuitous spoilers within them, or flaunt your knowledge of Shin Eva outside the spoiler subforum. They are there for enabling franchise-wide discussions outside the spoiler subforum, in circumstances where it makes sense to refer to spoiler material without having to spoil the movie for those who haven't watched it. (For mostly or entirely spoiler-filled discussions, there's always the spoiler subforum, of course)

EDIT: I've also added Section 2 (c) to the spoiler policy -

2c. Posting gratuitous hidden spoilers (with or without hints at their content), is considered a deliberate violation of the spirit of the rules and will be treated as such.

Upon further discussion with moderation staff, the Evangelion 3.0 (-120 min) Manga, as a supplemental material released alongside Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.0, has been placed under the spoiler policy. The spoiler policy has been amended to include this.

To answer Kendrix's question, we had an internal discussion about when to lift the spoiler policy. Shin Eva is going to be more accessible than any of the previous Rebuild of Evangelion movies due to being given an international streaming on Prime Video - worldwide, no less! More people will have watched the movie sooner than any of the previous movies as a result, and that means there's no need to continue the spoiler policy for very long.

The majority of us thought that the most reasonable option would be to lift the spoiler policy on August 23rd, 10 days after the worldwide release. This allows folks to watch Shin Eva over the weekends of the 14th/15th and 21st/22nd.

We'll let you know in future if a delay (to August 30, for instance) is necessary but for now think of the 23rd as the day you no longer have to type "spoilmerotten" to discuss Shin Eva.

The opening post and thread title have been edited with this information as well.
