New trailer for Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.0 promises a brutal end to the film series in June 2020

Maybe things will turn out all right for Shinji & co. this time!

The final movie in the Rebuild of Evangelion reboot film series finally has a new teaser trailer after years of waiting. Evangelion: 3.0 + 1.0 is the fourth film in the series, which is a reinterpretation of the original Neon Genesis Evangelion anime. It will hit theaters in Japan in June 2020.

The trailer is predominantly a whole bunch of creatures and Evangelion units accompanied by a quintessentially Evangelion, vocal-heavy soundtrack. Along the way, we also catch glances of Asuka, Rei, Shinji, and Kaworu, a puzzling appearance given the events of Evangelion 3.0. While the Rebuild of Evangelion movie series aligns with the anime in its early stages, the plot diverges towards the end of the series, with the fourth film promising a novel conclusion.

The original television run of Neon Genesis Evangelion, in addition to follow-up films EVANGELION: DEATH (TRUE)² and The End of Evangelion, hit Netflix in June, finally finding a legal streaming home in the United States.
