News News Site Clarifies 4th New Evangelion Film's Reported Date
posted on 2014-07-20 23:57 EDT
In its Friday article on the upcoming airing of three Evangelion films, the website Web The Television wrote that Shin Evangelion Gekijō-ban 𝄇 (シン・エヴァンゲリオン劇場版𝄇) "is slated to open at the end of next year." Within an hour of posting the article, the website updated the sentence to say that the film "has created a stir online and is reportedly opening at the end of next year." It also added a qualifier: "(There is no official announcement of the opening date.)"
The film is the fourth and final one in Hideaki Anno and Khara's four-part remake of Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion series. The film was previously listed for 2013, but its official website no longer lists a date. The August 2013 issue of Enterbrain's OtonaFami magazine reported that the film will open in Japan in 2015. The previous issue had listed a "Winter 2015" date. The film's anime studio Khara has not announced an opening date.
