JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 Climbs Past US$180 Million Worldwide Box Office

Surpasses Pokémon: The First Movie as the 8th highest-grossing anime film of all-time



JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 concluded in Japanese theaters a little under a month ago and while it is still having some special showings around the world, Oricon has announced the current worldwide box office total for the blockbuster anime film, confirming that it has made 24.25 billion yen (around US$180 million) around the world.


Breaking up the numbers, 13.75 billion yen (US$121.15 million) of JUJUTSU KAISEN 0’s worldwide box office is from Japan, while the remaining 10.5 billion yen (US$78 million) is from 80 countries where the film was screened over 8,000 theaters. 9.9 million tickets were sold for JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 in theaters outside of Japan, with 9.8 million tickets sold for the film in Japan alone.


Note that the US dollar amount is only a reference and not wholly accurate to the US amount earned by the film. This is due to the massive drop in Yen to the US dollar over the last month or so.
