Jujutsu Kaisen 0 : a record on Japanese soil
In recent years we have seen appearing in French cinemas a renewed love for Japanese animated films adapted from manga. The runaway success of the film Demon Slayer: The Infinity Train is the most impactful proof of this, but that would be to forget the very recent Jujutsu Kaisen 0currently in theaters. In both cases, the first screenings of the films were very hectic, with major overflows in the Grand Rex over several screenings. We had devoted an article to these overflows to be found right here. However, we are not here to talk about the film on French territory, since on Japanese soil, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 just set an impressive record at the Japanese box office.

In fact in Japan, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 begins its 7th week in theatersand achieves a very impressive score, with 7,603,732 admissions for 80 million euros in revenue in 45 days.

Currently, the film has grossed over $120.7 million worldwide. But that’s not all ! this success also earned him a place in the top 10 of the biggest hits on Japanese soil, eighth place ahead Frozen 2 (19th) Avatar (12th) or even Le Howl’s Moving Castle (9th) and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (11th). However, it is still far from the phenomenal success of the film Demon Slayer…
