It looks like they are seeing success in the U.S. as well. The film is now in its third weekend and is still going strong with massive earnings and a great fifth ranking at the box office to boot. So let’s go over the film’s success in detail.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 approaches $30 million in earnings
As reported by Anime News Network, the film is at $29,693,448 and will probably cross the $30 million mark. Moreover, even though it was released back on March 18, 2022, it’s still at rank #5 in U.S. theaters, which is around 3 weeks after release.
While we’re talking about popular anime, another really good one is Attack on Titan. The part of the final season of the popular anime just wrapped up, and it was just as awesome as we hoped. Furthermore, part 3 of the final season has been announced, so check it out.
How was Jujutsu Kaisen 0?
The film is based on the manga before Jujutsu Kaisen and is made by the same author Gege Akutami. The plot is about Yuta Okkotsu, a sixteen-year-old cursed by his childhood friend Rika. The dangerous spirit of Rika clings to Yuta and nearly gets him executed. But everyone’s favorite Gojou Satoru saves him and enrolls him in the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School.
And just like the Gojou, expect to see some other familiar faces from the anime like Maki Zenin and Panda. Furthermore, the curse user Suguru Geto who is seen a bit in the main story, is one of the main villainous forces in the movie. Although this is a must-watch for fans, it is also receptive to newcomers since it occurs before the main anime.
