While the movie Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is off to a flying start in its international release, coming in second at the North American box office, in its home country of Japan, the film continues to gross yen, beating jurassic-park and becoming the 20th highest-grossing film of all time in Japan. Furthermore, with its international premiere, the prequel produced by MAP is poised to become the 10th highest grossing anime film of all time worldwide.
In Japan, until March 21, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 has raised more than 13 billion yen (about 112.60 million dollars) with 9.28 million tickets sold. This makes the film the 20th highest-grossing of all time in Japan, just short of the 13.11 billion yen grossed by Bohemian Rhapsodywhich will possibly exceed in the coming weeks.
Around the world, on the film’s opening weekend in North America, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 it has grossed $18,002,980, while in Australia and New Zealand it made a total of $810,381, and in the UK and Ireland, $1,080,079. The film was released in some Asian countries earlier this month: in South Korea it grossed $3,973,609 and in Taiwan $7,182,675.
Total, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 has achieved an estimated collection of 143.65 million dollars, a little less than two million dollars of the world total of Karigurashi no Arrieta (The Secret World of Arrietty), which is currently the 10th highest-grossing anime film of all time worldwide. Next week, when the anime film opens in more European countries, it will overtake this film and start hot on the heels of Mononoke Hime (Princess Mononoke).
The film, released on December 24, is already among the highest-grossing films in Japanese history, while screenings in theaters in Latin America will begin on March 24.

Synopsis of Jujutsu Kaisen 0
Yuuta Okkotsu is cursed. Ever since his childhood friend Rika died in a traffic accident, his ghost has stayed with him. But his spirit doesn’t appear as the sweet girl Yuuta once knew. Instead, he manifests as a monstrous and powerful entity that fiercely protects him. Unable to control Rika’s violent behavior, Yuuta finds himself powerless to stop the bloodshed that follows her brutal revenge. As a result, when he is taken prisoner by the “Jujutsu” wizards, the secret guardians of the world, trained to combat forces like Rika, Yuuta wishes to be completely isolated so that no one else can be hurt.
However, his captor, the master sorcerer Satoru Gojou, has other plans for him: he will enter the Jujutsu High School and learn to control Rika to help people. Now, in his first year at this school, Yuuta begins to learn the arts of Jujutsu and fight evil beings. Together with his new companions Maki Zenin, an expert in Jujutsu weapons; Toge Inumaki, a sorcerer who uses his words as weapons; and Panda, a panda bear that seems to walk and talk, Yuuta begins to find his place in the world and, for once, to feel comfortable with his abilities. However, as his training progresses, Yuuta learns that the dangers of the world of Jujutsu go far beyond evil spirits.
