Rebuild of Evangelion Movie Poster?

If you've been reading my blog for a while, you know that I am following the development and release of the 4(!) new Eva movies with great interest. I can't wait! Any way, I have run across what appears to be a movie poster for the first of the four movies, Evangelion: 1.0 (or something like that). I LOVE the tag-line under the title at the bottom: "You are (not) alone." That certainly sounds like Evangelion to me. One thing appears to be missing from the poster, though: Where in the fark is everybody's favorite red-headed German, ASUKA?! I am worried...

And here's a really cool bit from the director himself:

”Eva" is a story that repeats. It is a story where the main character witnesses many horrors with his own eyes, but still tries to stand up again. It is a story of will; a story of moving forward, if only just a little. It is a story of fear, where someone who must face indefinite solitude fears reaching out to others, but still wants to try. We hope that you look forward to the 4 new retellings of this story.

In closing, it is also our job to provide a service to our customers. Although it seems obvious, we aim to create a form of entertainment that anyone can look forward to; one that people who have never seen Evangelion can easily adjust to, one that can engage audiences as a movie for theatres, and one that produces a new understanding of the world.

This fall, we hope you can join us.

Creator/General Director, Anno Hideaki
