Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced in its eighth issue of 2022 that anime film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will be released in 4D and Dolby Cinema in Japan. Starting February 5th, movie-goers will be able to experience the action-filled anime with thrilling physical effects.
In its first 24 days in Japan, the film had sold for about US$74.9 million. As of last Monday, the picture is the 64th highest-grossing film in Japanese box office history.
In its first three days, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 grossed about $23.5 million and topped the box office chart for its opening weekend. There are also IMAX screenings of the film.
A new promotional video for the anime has recently been released by the official Twitter account of Jujutsu Kaisen. This celebrates the film’s road to 10 billion yen milestone.
The anime film is based on Gege Akutami’s Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School manga prequel story. MAPPA is handling the animation of the move while TOHO is distributing.
Viz Media published the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 manga in January 2021, and describes the story as:
Yuta Okkotsu is a nervous high school student who is suffering from a serious problem—his childhood friend Rika has turned into a Curse and won’t leave him alone. Since Rika is no ordinary Curse, his plight is noticed by Satoru Gojo, a teacher at Jujutsu High, a school where fledgling exorcists learn how to combat Curses. Gojo convinces Yuta to enroll, but can he learn enough in time to confront the Curse that haunts him?– Viz Media
