Evangelion 2.0 Film Slated for June 27 in Japan
Posted by blizzarddog5 on February 19th, 2009 in Category ZOMG News

Evangelion: 2.0 You Can [Not] Advance, the second film in Hideaki Anno and Khara’s theatrical remake of Gainax’s Neon Genesis Evangelion television anime series, will open on June 27 in Japan. Khara had already revealed the title and early summer release window for the second film last October.

The project’s official website and the second film’s teaser, which was shown with the first film, promised the fan-favorite character Asuka, the EVA-02 through -06 units with new designs for many of them, a new eyeglasses-wearing brunette girl character, “more fan “service-service,” “a shocking new story, and new visuals.” The character designer Yoshiyuki Sadamoto designed three [email protected] toys — one each for Asuka, the character Rei, and a mystery character — to be sold separately on March 14 or bundled with advance film ticket purchases.

In related news, the official Evangelion website has announced on Thursday that the first movie in the remake project, Evangelion: 1.0 You Are [Not] Alone, will get a “1.11″ release on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on May 27. The 1.11 release will include new cuts and digital mastering. More details on King Record’s news release will be made public on March 16. There was an earlier “1.01″ version that was first released on DVD last April and given a second theatrical run that same month.

Funimation is releasing the first film in North America in film festivals and later on DVD this year. The first film opened in September 2007, earned over 2 billion yen (about US$20 million), and became the #2 top-selling domestic DVD in 2008, just below Boys Over Flowers Final. It won the Harayasa T?kaimura Award at the 7th Annual Japanese Otaku Awards, the Animation of the Year award at the 7th Annual Tokyo Anime Awards, and the Theatrical Film Award at the 13th Animation Kobe Awards
