The movie, which is currently running in theatres, continues to garner rave reviews from anime fans across the country.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie released in India on June 30, 2022, earning ₹1.50 crores on the first day.
Owing to the positive response, PVR had added more cities and areas where they will be screening Jujutsu Kaisen 0.
The movie has made around USD $180 million (24.25 Billion Yen), globally, before its release in India.
It was released in over 8000 theatres, selling over 9.9 million tickets. Although, 9.8 million tickets were sold in Japan alone.
The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie is the 4th highest earning anime movie in North America, and 8th highest earning anime movie ever, globally.
Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is based on Tokyo Metropolitan Curse Technical School, the prequel manga to the main series. It is written and illustrated by Gege Akutami. The manga was serialized in Shueisha’s Jump GIGA magazine from April to July 2017.
After Akutami launched Jujutsu Kaisen in 2018, the series was retroactively retitled Jujutsu Kaisen 0—making it a prequel—and released in a single tankōbon volume in December 2018.
