“One Piece Film Red” It has been the most watched in Japan for weeks and weeks, a success that was also achieved momentarily in France. The reality is that the new movie by Luffy and company has become a disproportionate titan in the land of the rising sun, and after sneaking between the 10 most successful films historically at the box office in the country (of Japanese origin), has now been confirmed to be already the highest-grossing film in Japan so far in 2022.
The success of One Piece Film Red will go down in history this 2022
Before moving on to how this situation has come about, I leave you with the top 10 historical Japanese films according to provided by the Crunchyroll teamsomething that I think will give you the key clue to understand the result:
- Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Mugen Ressha-hen / 40.32 billion yen
- Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi / 31.68 billion yen
- Kimi no Na wa. (YourName.) / 25.03 billion yen
- Mononoke Hime / 20.18 billion yen
- Hauru no Ugoku Shirō (Howl’s Moving Castle) / 19.60 billion yen
- Ponyo / 15.5 billion yen
- Tenki no Kō (weathering with you) / 14.19 billion yen
- One Piece Film Red / 13.87 billion yen ❗
- Jujutsu Kaisen 0 / 13.61 billion yen
- Kaze Tachinu (The Wind Rises) / 12.02 billion yen
Basically, what has happened for “One Piece Film Red” to be the most successful movie of this 2022 in Japan is that has left behind the performance of “Jujutsu Kaisen 0”. Indeed, while the Yuuta-centric film was released in 2021 (which is why it is considered to have been ahead of “Evangelion 3.0+1.0” that year), the Japanese box office calculation spans from December to November. Namely, “One Piece Film Red” Has Officially Overtaken “Jujutsu Kaisen 0” In Fiscal 2022 Japanese Box Office Hit.
Ultimately, I can only remember that in Spain, after Selecta Visión slightly advanced the premiere, it will be from November 3, 2022 that we can go to the cinema to see “One Piece Film Red”. Are you going to miss it? I certainly don’t, and I’m already looking for one ‘team‘ to go see the movie together.
Synopsis of One Piece
