- February 12th, 2009
According to the Cinema Topics website, July 2009 is the estimated/planned theatrical release date for Evangelion 2.0: You can (not) advance. No source is given. More news will be posted on Evageeks once this information is updated.
Update (Feb 3rd): False alarm. The movie is no longer listed on the site.
Update (Feb 12th): Another rumor surfaces! At an Evangelion blog at fc2.com, the author writes (rough translation) that he heard it would be on the 27th of June from someone who works at a theater and an official announcement is expected next month, but this person isn’t an authoritative source. He apologizes for getting everyone’s hopes up if he’s wrong, but even if it’s earlier or later, the ‘early summer’ release is still not far away.
