Funimation has teamed up with new company, Cinema Asia Releasing, and Eleven Arts in order to bring us Evangelion 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance. Not only is it coming stateside, but it's also going to be in theaters.

The movie is set for release January 2011.
This is pretty exciting news for Eva fans, so be sure to check out the trailer above. From an industry perspective, we're seeing a lot more theatrical releases of what normally goes straight to DVD this year. Perhaps it's a sign of awesome things to come.
