Shin Eva: Keep calm and stick to schedule

A few things have happened lately. Like other news outlets have reported, the Japanese prefectures of Tokyo, Chiba, Kanagawa and Saitama have requested an additional two weeks of lockdown, with understandable public frustration.

This means that theaters in those prefectures will have to continue to operate under lockdown conditions, with reduced operating hours and additional seating restrictions. This is likely to bring down the opening week totals for Shin Eva, given the large population in those prefectures.

That being said, it appears that the movie is NOT in any danger of a delay, and tickets go on presale at midnight Japan time on Friday, March 5 (47 hours and 30 minutes from now)

So don’t worry, folks. We’ll get our Shin Eva fix.
