” One Piece Film Red ” has been the most watched in Japan for weeks and weeks, a success that was also momentarily achieved 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 being among the 10 most successful movies historically at the box office in the country (of Japanese origin), now it has been confirmed that it is 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 historical top 10 Japanese movies as provided by the Crunchyroll team , something that I think will give you the key clue to understand the result:
- Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba – Mugen Ressha-hen / 40,32 millardos de yenes
- Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi / 31,68 millardos de yens
- Kimi no Na wa. ( Your Name. ) / 25.03 billion yen
- Mononoke Hime / 20.18 billion yen
- Hauru no Ugoku Shiro ( Howl’s Moving Castle ) / 19.60 billion yen
- Ponyo / 15.5 billion yen
- Tenki no Ko ( 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 to make “One Piece Film Red” the most successful film of this 2022 in Japan is that it 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 success .
Ultimately, I can only remember that in Spain, after Selecta Vision 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? Of course not, and I’m already looking for a ‘ squad ‘ to go see the movie in company.
Synopsis of One Piece
