The rollout for the second Neon Genesis Evangelion film continues with a bevy of release dates now slated for it. The first feature made the art house circuit previously when it was acquired and release by FUNimation and through the combined efforts with Cinema Asia Releasing and Eleven Arts, they're expanding even further into more markets with it for the second feature. The first feature also appears to be screening prior to it at select theaters though which ones are not listed in the information provided so far, so check with your local theater to see if they're going to double up on it.
