Running Behind!

I really meant to post this alot sooner than I have, but I got very caught up with leveling my Death Knight over spring break (as well as actually doing some work for school) and updating turned into one of those things that I am “always planning on doing”.

Regardless! Last friday the first real trailer for the next Rebuild of Evangelion film premiered in Japan and then across the internet in bootleg-camera phone form some odd number of hours later. The bootleg version has been appearing and dissapearing off of youtube so I won’t be posting it here until I see something with a little more quality. Below are pictures of the new poster as well as a special image of Asuka that appears on the advance-purchase tickets.

The poster features some new quotes from Shinji, Asuka, and the new character Mari. The creators had promised previously that the upcoming film, unlike the previous “You Are (not) Alone” will feature some major changes to the story and the characters. The most apparent of these changes so far (aside from the addition of several new Eva units) is a change to Asuka’s name which is now “Shikinami Asuka Langley” rather than the old “Sohryu Asuka Langley”. Apparently she is also a captain in the new film as well. Let the fan arguments commence. A full translation of the side text from the poster follows below (taken from http://www.evageeks.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=226148#226148).

Asuka: That’s right. I’m laughing.

Shinji: I can’t laugh with anyone anymore.
Mari: If you’re so hard on yourself like that, you won’t have any fun.

 

 

Seems like the new movie will be very exciting….and I am very interested in seeing how they condense so much material into single film.

 

In older news, the new Star Trek trailer premiered in front of Watchmen and has succeeded in completely blowing my mind. If this movie is anything as good as the recent advertisement for it….I shall be setting up residence in the movie theater.

 

Finally, a random picture which I have been laughing constantly about:
