I plan on attending the Victory Plaza event in Dallas. It should be nice if the weather warms up. The outdoor screen is pretty cool and should prove to be a good venue for the movie.

THey've been getting it for some time.

Otakorp (Otakon's parent corp) has sponsored a yearly anime marathon in conjunction with the Smithsonian's Freer Gallery at the National Cherry Blossom Festival for something like five or six years now.

most likely sub... Rolling Eyes

AH AH AH!

They've had a good two months now, Funimation EASILY could've put together a dub for a MOVIE by then. Razz

Maybe not an entire series but a movie? Definitely.

And if it is a dub, I am crossing my fingers they nabbed Spike Spencer to reprise his role as Shinji. Mad

That would just make my day.

I'm in for this one, no doubt. I do wish that the showing was one week later, as I had already planned a trip to DC on April 4th. C'est la vie, I guess...

From the National Cherry Blossom Festival website:
Quote:
Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone
1:30 PM
This sci-fi tale co-directed by Hideaki Anno, Masayuki and Kazuya Tsurumaki is set in a post-apocalyptic Tokyo, where the population defends itself from alien invaders with the help of human/mechanical hybrid battle robots. Its hero, Shinji, is a shy 14-year-old boy mysteriously chosen to save the planet from the aliens for good. Rated PG. (2007, 98 min., Japanese with English subtitles, video)
I think that should answer that question.

But the R2 DVD version is 1.01. This is prob an English subtitled version. Rebuild of EVA movie 1 has 3 different R2 versions now, 1.0 (original theatrical version), 1.01 (DVD version) and 1.11 (Blu-ray version).

Hm - I had been planning to see the two films by Nagisa Oshima on March 28 at the National Gallery in DC ('the Catch' and 'Shiro Amakusa, the Christian Rebel') but 'Eva: 1.0' and 'Vexille' are tempting.

*snaps fingers all clever like as if to say 'darn'*

Ah well, doesn't matter. Still, let's hope Funimation doesn't slack off and give the public DVD release no dub.

Still, I'm looking forward to the movie.

Yeah, but aside from that I've often heard of films premiering or showing in a bunch of cities that are not DC. So aside from the Cherry Blossom festival, and other Smithsonian events that randomly pop up, I would say that, for whatever reason, we don't get many anime films. Not that I always have my finger to the pulse of anime showings, but when Evangelion 1.0 was first making rounds in the states I don't recall DC being on the list.

This kind of makes me sad. I mean, seeing as I live in the middle of the US, I get nothing. No screenings, no nightly releases. ~sighs~
