Evangelion: 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo is the third of four films released in the Rebuild of Evangelion tetralogy directed by acclaimed animator Hideaki Anno. Fourteen years after the third impact, Shinji awakens to a world he does not recognize. His body has not aged a single day. Earth lies in ruins, and those he once fought valiantly to protect have cruelly turned against him. NERV is nothing but a distant memory. Trapped in a harrowing cycle of death and rebirth, Shinji continues to courageously battle the angels – even as the world spirals down towards what could be a tragic end. Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo is based on the wildly popular anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. With complex themes explored through Christian imagery, mecha drama tropes, and – in the final, controversial episodes – psychoanalysis of the main characters, this apocalyptic anime gets a stunning reinterpretation with this new film series, truncating some storylines and expanding others. Evangelion 3.0, like its two predecessors, was a monster box-office hit in Japan, with the eagerly awaited “final chapter” set to be released here in the US in the near future.
