Dragon Ball Super: Broly Earns Massive 3.3 Billion Yen in 24 Days

After selling one million tickets only in six days, Toei Animation’s 20th Dragon Ball film Dragon Ball Super:Broly has earned an impressive 3,354,780,500 yen on 2,604,870 admissions in 24 days since its release on December 14, 2018. It is almost certain that it will become the anime franchise’s top-grossing film surpassing the current record of 3.74 billion yen marked by Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F  in 2015. The film also started screening in Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore on December 27, 2018, and in Brazil on January 3, 2019. It ranked in top 10 in all the countries surpassing the first weekend box office record of Resurrection ‘F. Especially in Malaysia and Brazil, it broke the highest opening record for a Japanese animation film in history.

  • Thailand (December 27 release) – opening weekend ranking: 4th (US$425,670/261 screens)
  • Malaysia/Brunei (December 27 release) – opening weekend ranking: 6th (US$ 232,000/105 screens)
  • Singapore (December 27 release) – opening weekend ranking: 8th (US$44,000/18 screens)
  • Brazil (January 3 release) – opening weekend ranking: 4th (US$1,664,182/407 screens)

The all-new feature film Love Live! Sunshine!! The School Idol Movie Over the Rainbow was released in 128 theaters across Japan on January 4 and ranked a disappointing eighth place in its opening weekend. Its box office figure has not yet been officially reported. The franchise’s first feature film Love Live! The School Idol Movie was released in 121 theaters, seven less than Sunshine!!, and took No.1 with 400 million yen. Meanwhile, as with the first film, the Sunshine!! film became the most popular film in Pia’s first day satisfaction ranking with a very good 92.8% approvalrating. And as expected, the live-action film adaptation of Naoshi Komi’s love-comedy manga Nisekoi quickly disappeared from the top 10, after making its ninth place debut with a poor 170 million yen.
