“JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 Confirmed to Be 6th Highest-Grossing Anime Film Worldwide”
It’s been nearly a year since JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 opened in theaters in Japan, introducing fans to Yuka and Rika and what may be coming in the future of the franchise. Though the film is streaming right now on Crunchyroll around the world, Toho announced today that JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 will be headed to Amazon Prime Video inside Japan on December 24 and with the news gave an official worldwide box office update for the film.
Outside of Japan, JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 was released in 89 countries and regions, grossing 12.7 billion yen on the back of 10.67 million tickets sold. Including the Japanese box office gross of 13.8 billion yen (US$121.15 million) which brings the film to a worldwide gross of 26.5 billion yen (US$196.17 million).
While JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 may not be the highest-grossing film of the year in Japan, as that title is currently held by One Piece Film Red, it is the 15th highest-grossing film of all time in the country, as well as the 9th highest-grossing anime film. Worldwide, JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 is the 6th highest-grossing anime film of all time pushing Makoto Shinkai’s Weathering With You down to 7th place and the 4th highest-grossing Japanese film in the United States.
