Shin Eva becomes 49th highest grossing

With a weekend gross of 93.3 million yen, Shin Eva becomes the 49th highest grossing Japanese film of all time. It beat Cold Blue: The Movie to make its place on the top 50 list. Since its last theatrical run is ongoing, its ranking is bound to increase over the week.

This week is already full of goodies like the Shinjuku Wald 9 stage greeting event and Mari and Kaworu mini-posters. Reaching the mythic 10 billion yen mark by the end of the month seems a distinct possibility!
