After more than 157 days in Japanese theaters, JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 has come to an end today with final screenings in Japan. Although it was recently released in Spain, it has been around for a long time in other regions such as Mexico, the United States, Canada and Latin America. However, the data from Mantan Web They show that he will go through the big door. This film is one of the highest grossing in the Asian country.
While it will be a few days until we get the final total sales numbers for the film, which will include these final screenings in addition to those for theatrical events, numbers through May 28, the 156th day in theaters, have been announced, revealing that this production by animation studio MAPPA has reached 13.7 billion yen (120.77 million US dollars) at the Japanese box office with 9.77 million tickets sold.
This pushes JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 to 14th place on the all-time Japanese box office chart, one of the highest positions that animation cinema has had. The MAPPA-produced film shares this location with Tom Cruise’s 2003 film The Last Samurai. There is no doubt that this production will keep this place for a long time, having dethroned The Last Samurai to 15th place.
Be that as it may, JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 held steady as the eighth highest-grossing anime film of all time in Japan. With these numbers, animated film’s place on the Japanese box office charts solidifies behind Weathering with You on both the all-time and anime charts. Shinkai’s film grossed 14.19 billion yen (US$138 million), making it impossible for Gege Akutami’s adaptation of the play to top it, even with tickets sold out today.
