Japanese audiences can’t get enough of this animated sensation!

Since its release on August 6th, 2022, One Piece Film Red has taken the Japanese box office by storm, achieving immense success that has left everyone in awe. As of November 22nd, 2023, this action-packed film has raked in a jaw-dropping 20.33 billion yen (that’s approximately US$137 million!), solidifying its place as the 6th highest-grossing film of all time in Japan.

Ruling the Box Office Scene

When it comes to Japanese animated films, One Piece Film Red proudly holds the 4th spot in terms of overall box office earnings. Surpassing even the likes of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, this adventurous anime flick has captivated audiences and left them hungry for more.

What sets One Piece Film Red apart from its peers is its incredible audience reception and the demand for repeat viewings. Even after its initial theatrical run concluded, the film delighted fans with special encore screening events in October. And you won’t believe it, but even during these limited encore screenings, the film managed to sell an additional 122,000 tickets, earning about 159 million yen (that’s around US$1.06 million!) within the first 3 days.

The Straw Hat Pirates conquer the box office!

One Piece Film Red has not only shattered records in Japan but has also made a splash on the global stage. This film has sailed its way to become the highest-selling and highest-grossing film in the entire One Piece franchise’s history, leaving its predecessors in its wake.

Surpassing the legendary Studio Ghibli film Howl’s Moving Castle, it now proudly sits at the #5 spot for highest-earning anime movies at the Japanese box office. And that’s not all – internationally, this epic adventure has raked in a whopping 31.9 billion yen (approximately US$246.5 million) in revenue across all releasing territories, securing its place at #4 among all anime films worldwide

Setting Sail for Global Success

One Piece Film Red shows no signs of slowing down as it continues to make waves in the record books. Earlier this year, it tied with the classic Studio Ghibli anime Princess Mononoke, ranking at #7 for highest-grossing films and #4 for top anime films of all time in Japan. But this epic adventure didn’t stop there.

As the historic run of One Piece Film Red continues, there’s no doubt that more box office records will fall beneath the Straw Hat Pirates’ thrilling and unforgettable cinematic adventure.
