Evangelion - The Movie by shokxone-studios Evangelion - The Movie by shokxone-studios
11/10/06 - Okay, lately I've been getting questions regarding this poster...questions that by now I'd have assumed would no longer be asked...nonetheless, I'd like to clear up these issues, assuming of course people actually READ WHAT I'M WRITING HERE - I'M EVEN TYPING THIS IN CAPS LOCK AND I BET YOU'RE NOT PAYING ATTENTION.

1. NO, this is not a real poster.

2. This FAKE poster was originally created back in January of 2003. Later that year at the Cannes Film Festival, ADV Films announced the start of pre-production on a REAL live-action Evangelion movie, with design work being done by WETA Workshop; conceptual artwork can be seen here: [link] .

3. As of 2006, the live-action Eva movie - with which this FAKE movie poster has NO affiliation - has NOT yet been made, and therefore has NOT yet been released.

The cast (I know my choices are WAY off, but c'mon, it's fan art) :
Elijah Wood as Shinji
Natalie Portman as Asuka
Zhang Ziyi as Rei.

The girl who played Mako Mori in Pacific Rim actually voiced Rei, so I think she would be a more fitting choice, but the one you have is pretty good.

I'm so happy that there is no live actions of Evangelion, it would be terrible.
GwDuncan Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2013
I do not want Elijah Wood to play Shinji, sure he do good at playing a pathetic idiot, but as Shinji, he fails, because Shinji is way more complicated then that

I saw this poster somewhere out there on line.. I even had it as a desktop background for a while. It just filled me with hope that the actual movie would happen soon, but looks like Peter Jackson, originally interested in the project, has his plate full for now...

Lol, I love the your sense of humor

I'd have to get into Evangelion to be sure your casting off . . . but if Elijah was in that movie, I'd soo totally watch it. :)

natalie portman! ELIJAH WOOD!!! *does know zhang ziyi* I WOULD SO WATCH THIS if it were real *cries*
awesome poster :D

Whyyyyyy would Elijah Wood play Shinji? Shinji is Japanese. As in not white.
shokxone-studios Featured By Owner Jan 31, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It's nine-year-old fan artwork. Don't bust a brain cell over it.
Lultharion Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012
hehe yep wood would be a good cast member plus i think christian bale would be good as kaji :D

The Music Box Theater in Chicago mistakenly put this poster up on their website when they were showing the Eva 1.0 movie two years ago. I think it was on their site for at least a week before they finally took it down and put an image of the real poster up.

XD btw sorry for commenting again but, in the bottom right its rated F for fake... really fake...
fucknogoodnamesleft Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
elijah wood natalie portman??!! poooooooo!! just my opinion though, im hoping if they make the movie it wont be a high budget low story movie like the 2 actors usually work in, honestly i dont know if they should make a live action, im afraid theyre gonna fuck it up, and forever after ther will be this big ugly stain on the series, for now im just waiting for 3.33
jasmin755 Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2011
Natalie Portman as Asuka?....Heck no :P
JasJaws Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2011  Hobbyist

You'd be surprised.

Why are you so ashamed of this one? Its a pretty good poster especially when the time you made it...

Your casting is terrible, but awesome poster nonetheless.
destroy-to-create Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2010
the actors you've chosen are fitting perfectly :D
Cure4 Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2010  Hobbyist Interface Designer
This takes me back, I saw this years ago and to be honest its what kinda inspired me to make movie posters for a hobby. You should post this up on your website.
BLUEgarden Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2010
Natalie Portman match perfectly with Asuka's character, in my opinion. Elijah Wood is quite good, but i think zhang zi yi didn't really match Rei's character, i prefer Shu Qi, she is cute and cool at the same time :D

just my opinion XD

nice work btw :)

Aha! I was searching through your deviations because of your avatar. I couldn't remind where the *** I saw that face before? Looks like Cubone/Marowak/Steelix/armoured Mewtwo in one but it is definitely NOT pokemon D:
And I found it ^_^ It's Eva!
Sweet poster^_^ But I would like see more japansese cast, hehe.
Saberstorm001 Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2010  Professional General Artist
Rated F for Fake. LOL!
apocalipsis666 Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2010
Nataly Portman could be Asuka, but Elijah wont definitely be shinji except for the personality
Mattoxic Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2010
This poster of yours has a remarkable resemblance to the boxart of Mass Effect - I take it that this likeness was intentional?
shokxone-studios Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Considering my poster predates the release of Mass Effect by about four years, I would have to say no. ;)
Mattoxic Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2010
Holy **** - your right! Bioware; those thieving bastards D:

regardless - it's a good peice :)

OMG that's a good poster i wish the movie is real
TheGhostOf0nyx Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2009
not sure i would really like a live action nge movie, but the poster is great! and the i like your idea for the casting, though i dont completely agree (not that i have any other ideas)
Longinusulfr Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2009
A live EVA movie will be a bad move.... Look at DragonBall and Speed Racer.
shokxone-studios Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Speed Racer was so underrated it's criminal. Never in a hundred years should Speed Racer be mentioned in the same sentence as Dragonball.
Longinusulfr Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2009
Either way, Eva can't go live action. Americans should realize that leaving things as they are is better than killing them slowly.

Eh, even if it's fake it's still good for a lol. ;D

But Frodo... I dunno, can't seem to take that guy seriously. ._.

If the movie is REALLY comes out in theaters, (I know it is, but don't know when), I'm gonne put a bullet in my brain.
CAT-Schrodinger-BOY Featured By Owner May 9, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
who is the guy who maybe shinji

stupid live action changing the names

Rei = Ray
Asuka = Katie Rose

Aren't they all a little old to be playing 14 year olds?

Not too fond of the cast, I guess Im not too fond of anyone cosplaying my fav anime/manga (But it could be my paranoia/ schizophrenia kicking in)

But I think I would kill myself if there was a real movie like this, I just think it takes away a lot from the Evangelion series if you compare the characters to real people. (I think that goes for all manga/anime)

Does anyone agree, or is it just me?
Emerald-Tiara Featured By Owner May 21, 2009
I agree the something is lost in live-action, but other things are gained. Yes, you lose your individual perception of the character, but you also get to see something wonderful portrayed in real life when otherwise if would just be drawings.

They are making the movie, though. Weta Workshop, the people who made LOTR, are gonna be working on can't be TOO bad. Personally I'm excited.
