Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Movie Grossed Over 10 Billion Yen in Japan

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie hit 10 billion yen

Toho Movie announced that Jujutsu Kaisen 0 has reached a revenue of 10.4 billion yen (~$90.4 million) with over 7.6 million tickets sold. The anime movie surpassed the 10 billion yen milestone 43 days after it came out in Japanese theaters on December 24, 2021.

The movie adaptation of Jujutsu Kaisen‘s prequel has become one of the most popular anime movies. It grossed over 5.8 billion yen with 4.3 million tickets sold within its first 11 days. However, it still did not come anywhere close to Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Mugen Train. The Demon Slayer movie hit the 10 billion mark in just ten days after its release in October 2020.

The Japan Academy Film Prize Association had also put Jujutsu Kaisen 0 as one of the nominees for the Best Animation of the Year. The nominee list also includes Evangelion 3.0+1.01: Thrice Upon a Time. Revenue-wise, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 outpaced Evangelion, which needed four months from March to July 2021 to reach 10 billion yen. The association will announce the award winner in March 2022.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is immediately available to watch in Japanese theaters. The English version of the movie will be available in the USA and Canada on March 18, 2022. This release will include both subtitles and dubs. The movie will also appear in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, and French-speaking African countries at an unspecified date.
