If we have a theatrical release in the U.S., I expect it to be very limited, shown only in festivals and specific locations (like the Madoka movies). Anime does not appeal to large crowds here, it is more of a niche market.

I do think it is possible for the Eternal movies to obtain an actual theatrical release in countries like Mexico and Brazil—people in those countries are obsessed with Sailor Moon.

It sadly made the Heaven's Feel Part 3 release in the USA impossible for now. I hope this means some sort of digital release. But knowing Japan, it will take ages. As for Eternal, I still have a feeling they will release it subbed around the world digitally.

If the deal is through Fathom Events, it would hit more theaters since they deal with AMC. The Sailor Moon R, S & SuperS movie screenings from 2 years ago was handled by them and were in a lot more locations than the Eleven Arts run of the R movie were 3 years ago.

We even had the recent Mazinger Z movie here through Fathom and that series is less popular in comparison.

Has Viz announced whether or not they have the rights to the movies or is it still too early?
Pretty sure they did not long after the title was announced. The official English title is a mess. Something like “Sailor Moon Crystal Season 4: Eternal: The Movie” or not far off

Edit: My mistake; the official English title was announced at a Kodansha panel

He simply has a certain style. There are shows he does recycle music for, but not for Cystal. He has worked on so much stuff for so long, you cannot always come up with completely new stuff. Jigoku Shoujo is my favorite show and he did amazing job with it. Then I watched Shiki and I noticed some stuff sound same-y. Say whatever but compared to the rest of the crew in the past, he is doing a good job. The problem is a lot of the misic got unused and there are certain themes that are over used or used on scenes thay doesn't quite fit. While at first I downright hated tge transformation music the first time I heard it, it is not hafl bad if you listen to ot with a headset.
