news culture One Piece Red: an incredible turnover for the last film of the manga phenomenon!
It’s already time for a first real assessment for the last feature film dedicated to the One Piece saga. While Toei Animation announces incredible figures on the Japanese side, the One Piece Red film continues its conquest of Europe and has not finished shaking the box office!
One Piece RED: Japan conquered, but the others?
Very widely acclaimed in Japan, One Piece Film RED pulverizes many records without complex thanks to the unconditional fervor of a public of fans who moved massively to support its cinema launch. In just 9 weeks, the film One Piece RED thus displays nearly 12 million admissions for an estimated turnover of 112.48 million euros as of October 17, 2022. The author of the original manga, Eiichirô Oda, can be proud of the success of his saga which seems to generate as much enthusiasm in its original format as through its latest film adaptations. Especially since, after Japan, One Piece Film RED looks set to hit very hard also on the side of Europe where the feature film continues to cast off, one step after another…
