The “final” Evangelion film, Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time has sold 3.22 million tickets during its first two weeks in the Japanese box office. The movie has also earned about 4.9 billion yen (approx. 45.37 million US dollars) and stayed at #1 in the box office during the same time period.
Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time, was released in Japan on Monday, March 8, and sold 33.6% more tickets than the previous Evangelion film during their respective first seven days.
This past weekend, the movie earned 679,390,200 yen and sold 423,398 tickets. In total, Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time has earned 48.8% more yen and sold 36.0% more tickets in its first two weeks in the box office, than its predecessor, Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo.
Unsurprisingly, this movie experienced delays before its March 8 release date. Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time was originally supposed to come out on June 27, 2020, but COVID happened so, the staff had to stop working on the film. The new release date for the film was January 23, 2021, but COVID rates were increasing, and Japan declared a state of emergency. So, there was another delay but now Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time is out and it’s doing well.
If you’re an Evangelion fan and you’re wondering when this masterpiece will grace American soil, I sorry to say that there is no information as to when this film will come to the US. We’ll be continuing to cover this topic and we’ll let you know more soon!
