Evangelion's Last Rebuild Movie Finally Comes to American Theaters – Screen Rant

After a release on streaming last year, the final movie in the Rebuild of Evangelion series will at last be hitting the silver screen in the US.
The last film in Neon Genesis Evangelion's Rebuild of Evangelion series is finally hitting theaters in the US, thanks to a special event showing next month.
Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 Thrice Upon a Time was released in Japanese theaters on March 8, 2021, but the film didn't see a theatrical release in the US that year, despite the recent success of other anime films like Demon Slayer: Mugen Train. Instead, the film was released on Amazon Prime Video on August 13, 2021, in the US, and has remained exclusive to that platform since, meaning fans without access to that particular service still haven't had a chance to see it. Even in Japan, a BluRay release has yet to occur, with that now set for March 8, 2023, two years to the day after the film debuted. A BluRay release for the US has been confirmed, but doesn't have a specific date yet.

According to a post by Crunchyroll, the special presentation is being put on by Fathom Events and distributor GKIDS, who obtained the theatrical rights to the film back in June and officially announced these showings in September 2022. The first showing date is November 30th, which will be exclusively for IMAX theaters. After that, select theaters will have additional screenings on December 6th, 8th, and 11th. It's unknown as of now whether additional dates might be added if the film does well enough, as was the case for Demon Slayer: Mugen Train. Tickets for all of these showings are already available for purchase, as of November 2nd.
The first Rebuild of Evangelion film was released in Japan on September 1, 2007, meaning nearly 14 years elapsed over the course of the series' release, with most of that time (9 years) between the release of Evangelion 3.0 and this final film. Given Neon Genesis Evangelion's continued popularity over the years, it's a bit of an understatement to say that this film was highly anticipated. Surprisingly for a movie with such a long development, the critical reactions to this final film were extremely positive, both in Japan and the US, although the film's ending has been divisive among the series' most dedicated fans. At the very least, the film contains some absolutely epic set pieces which will look amazing on the big screen, and it does finally answer some questions fans have long held about the Evangelion franchise, even if not everyone liked those answers.
Fans of Neon Genesis Evangelion owe it to themselves to see Rebuild of Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 Thrice Upon a Time in theaters if possible, as the film's tagline "GOODBYE, all of EVANGELION" strongly suggests that it represents the end of new content for the franchise.
