Evangelion: 2.0's Canadian Run Dated for January 20
posted on by Gia Manry
Cineplex, Canada's largest motion picture exhibitor, is now offering tickets for screenings of Hideaki Anno and Studio Khara's anime film Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance (Evangelion Shin Gekijōban: Ha) throughout the country on January 20, 2011.
Funimation has confirmed with ANN that the film will be screened, but notes that "some locations and dates need to be confirmed."
Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance is the second film in the four-film remake of Gainax's Neon Genesis Evangelion anime series. The 2009 film continued the story of a group of 14-year-olds entrusted with giant biomechanical units to protect Earth from mysterious Angels. While the first film hewed closely to the original television series, the second film went farther in a different direction and features one all-new major character, the pilot Makinami Mari Illustrious (Maaya Sakamoto).
