One Piece Film Red is Japan’s highest-grossing film in 2022

one piece“It is by now a success wherever it goes, so it is not strange to imagine that a new theatrical release is capable of becoming an anthological hit. Well, that is precisely what has happened with the film “One Piece Film Red“, because not only has it performed wonderfully internationally, but it has been especially in Japan where it has dominated the box office to the point of being able to say that, Indeed, it has been the king of 2022.

One Piece Film Red is the clear king of Japan’s box office in 2022

Then I leave you with top 10 grossing movies (produced in Japan) from the Japanese box office in this 2022, dated until December 25 (via ANN):

  1. One Piece Film Red: 18.78 billion yen (about 132.98 million euros)
  2. Jujutsu Kaisen 0: 13.8 billion yen (about 97.76 million euros)
  3. Suzume no Tojimari: 10.0 billion yen (about 70.81 million euros)
  4. Detective Conan: The Bride of Halloween: 9.78 billion yen
  5. Kingdom 2: Haruka Naru Daichi e: 5.16 billion yen
  6. Shin Ultraman: 4.44 billion yen
  7. 99.9 Keiji Senmon Bengoshi The Movie: 3.01 billion yen
  8. Yomei 10-nen: 3.0 billion yen
  9. Chinmoku no Parade: 2.97 billion yen
  10. Confidence Man JP Eiyūhen: 2.89 billion yen

It must be said that the top is altered if international films begin to be introduced, for example with “Top Gun: Maverick”, which would be located in third position ahead of “Suzume no Tojimari”, or with “Jurassic World Dominion”, which could occupy the fifth position. On the other hand, “One Piece Film Red” and “Suzune no Tojimari” continue with projections at the box office, so despite having been great successes in 2022, their data is not yet final, with room for growth.

If there is something clear in addition, it is that Toei this year has been lined. Maybe “Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero” is not on that national list (which seems quite striking to me), but at an international level things have been quite different; in Spain, for example, it became our most successful theatrical release of a “Dragon Ball” movie. In any case, what is clear is that it has been a great year for the Japanese company.
