We still don’t have a release date in North America for Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time, but it turns out the movie is doing just fine without one. Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 is heading into its fifth week as the number one movie in Japan after raking in 6.9 billion yen (or roughly $63.5m USD) in its first 28 days since release.
According to Cinema Today (by way of Anime News Network), Evangelion: 3.0+1.0 has sold 4,513,374 tickets to date and is now the highest-earning Evangelion movie, surpassing Evangelion 3.0 You Can (Not) Redo in its third weekend.
Evangelion: 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon A Time was initially set to release in June of last year but was delayed due to the coronavirus. It was delayed again in January thanks to a state of emergency declaration that closed many theatres.
Although Evangelion had a great opening weekend after earning 320 million yen ($2.9m USD), that still puts it well behind the new Demon Slater movie that drew in 32.47 billion yen ($313.9m USD) in its opening weekend in March, making it the highest-grossing film in Japan, ever.
We’ll see if Demon Slayer can continue that trend when it releases in other countries on April 23.
