After the second impact, all that remains of Japan is Tokyo-3, a city that's being attacked by giant creatures that seek to eradicate the human kind, called Angels. After not seeing his father for more than eight years, Shinji Ikari receives a phone call, in which he is told to urgently come to the NERV Headquarters, an organization that deals with the destruction of the Angels through the use of giant mechs called Evas.Shinji's objective is to pilot the Eva Unit 01,while teaming up with the Eva Unit 00 pilot, Ayanami Rei.
The official page for the film offers no dates, but there's a trailer up that suggests the film's release will be November 10, 2009. I hope to god they put it out on Blu-Ray from the get-go, because I just got a big shiny HDTV and I would like some more stuff to play on it.
Whew, what a relief to have that all done and over! And with that, my friends, I will bid you a Happy New Years Eve and scoot off to play some 1080p LittleBigPlanet before heading off into the night for a party. Have a good (safe) time, kids!
