Awesome! I hope this means it'll screen in New York eventually. Even if it does screen it's not likely I'll be able to see it...
Someone go and make a camrip! :chair:

Why would someone make a camrip of 1.0? For the dub?

PRPD, no matter what the quality of the dub is a rip is not worth it

Looks like Funimation is doing what Bandai did last year with Mamoru Hosoda's great "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time". Which is also practically what I predicted.

Play the film at a few choice theaters in cities spread out across the nation for very limited engagements. I guess Seattle must have a big anime crowd because the Varsity Landmark Theater there is where "The Girl..." started it's theatrical run.

My guess is we'll get a couple more announcements like this with probably cities like San Francisco, Boston, New York (and I would hope but unlikely) D.C. getting a chance to showcase the film. Since this is such a small theatrical release the film is going to play at specialty theaters only and at most for 5 days to a week.

So if Evangelion 1.0 is playing in a theater near you, and it's on film, I'd recommend rushing to see it. Dub or not, Blu-Ray enthusiast or not, the chance of watching a genuine Eva film on the screen (Genuine as in not a Live Action WankFest Remake) is to good to pass up.

Besides, you'd have some bragging rights on this site.


Though on the downside, looks like Funimation played it cheap. It's VIDEO. Not FILM.
Negative points for that.
"The Girl Who Leapt Through Time" got 35mm prints. Miyazaki's "Ponyo" has 800+ prints ready to play in North America this August. Shame Eva couldn't get one.
Financially though makes sense. To create a negative for their dub would alone cost a little under $50,000 (since the dub is done digitally) and then each print after that would be around $2,000. Though most likely I'm wrong because it's late, im doing math in my head and there's a lot of technical factors about the project I'm unaware of.

Ce la vie.

All these questions and more will be answered in this thrilling, big-screen version of the wildly popular Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series form the 90s.

Yeah, HD video is cheaper than film. It's also more robust and secure than film. If a shipment of film get damaged in delivery, the theater's screwed. Whereas in the digital world studios can just broadcast the movie to the theaters via satellite.

It actually surprises me that Ponyo get film prints, as most producers and distributors would consider mass producing delicate 35mm film as an unnecessary cost in light of just broadcasting digital video.

Hopefully, a New York screening will be announced soon. It would be an hour long train ride each way so I'm not sure if I'd be able to make it, but I'd still try. It's friggin' Evangelion in a theater!

Is there a large copy of that American Eva 1.0 poster anywhere online? It's not half bad.

I hope a Maryland screening will be announced soon since I saw the movie at DC, and I love it but the screen their was small as fuck. The Girl Who Leapt Through Time got a screening at my AMC in Batlimore like a year ago and I hope the samething happens also.

Like half the population of Seattle is Japanese people. So ya I'm sure they chose the city for a reason.

Kinda off topic, but most Japanese folk on the west coast do not speak Japanese...

Oh. THOSE kinds of Japanese people. If they can't call me a "gaijin", they don't count.

I'm actually going to see it this weekend with some friends. It was hard to convince them to see a "Anime" but I got them by saying it's a really good character study.

So I'll be sure to tell you guys what It was like after I see it.

I might be going also, I'm not sure. I've got a couple friends who are super into Eva so I might go but it's a 4-5 hour drive from Portland, and I'm not sure if a 1.5 hour movie is worth it, even if it is Eva.
