I swear, this is the last time I write about Evangelion for the foreseeable future.


It's been nine days since Evangelion: 3.0 debuted here in theaters, and already the film has earned over double of what 2.0 took in during the same period of time. We're talking approximately $34,740,800, which for a Japan is quite the chunk of change. 

Just what is it about this film that differentiates it from its precursors? For one, it's a movie that rewards repeat views. I went to see it a second time this past weekend, and was shocked to find that once again the theater was completely sold out. A week later, and I was still cutting it close by going an hour early to get tickets. I think that's ridiculous for any film, at this point.

So my theory is that like me, there are a lot of folks checking out 3.0 a second time. With the holidays and vacation time creeping up, I can't see these numbers slowing down any time soon either.

You done good, Studio Khara. You done good.
