Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is set to release in North America, South Korea, and Hong Kong in February 2022. This announcement came after the movie took over Japan’s theatres on Christmas Eve, Dec 24.
The movie also launched its first poster teasing the release for Korea and Hong Kong’s audiences.
With this, the series’ international fans will be excited to know that they can see the blockbuster soon. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 has been collecting quite some records since its release in Japan.
On its release, the movie earned a massive 1.05 billion yen on its opening day that climbed to 2.6 billion yen in the next 3 days. This made JJK 0 the second-highest 3 day opening in Japanese box office history. The film is also the second highest grossing anime movie behind Demon Slayer: Mugen Train‘s 1.2 billion yen sales in 24 hours.
It does not look like Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is running out of steam just yet; it also became the 80th highest earning film in Japanese box office history. The film has earned 7.7 billion yen in box office revenue with 5.6 million admissions over an 18 days period.
The international release will only push Jujutsu Kaisen 0‘s popularity and sales further, as the manga finds itself among bestsellers across charts and platforms. It is only a matter of time that the movie reaches the 10 billion yen goal.
Earlier, Jujutsu Kaisen had a bonus one-shot on Okkotsu Yuta released. A number of staff members had unveiled celebratory art over the movie’s release.
