'Evangelion' animates box office

Good news from Variety for anime fans:

Sci-fi toon "Evangelion" topped the weekend B.O. with ¥280 million ($2.4 million) from 236,158 admissions -- boffo numbers given that the pic was released Saturday and on only 84 prints.

Distrib Nikkatsu reported sold-out screenings across the country. Realizing that the originally skedded Cinema Square, a 224-seat theater in Tokyo's Shinjuku district, would not accommodate the crowds, Nikkatsu switched to the nearby, 1,046-seat Milano theater but still had standing-room-only crowds for all seven opening-day screenings.
