Hey guys! How’s it going on? I know we didn’t get any official news for Dragon Ball Super season 2 but a lot of sources and major Youtubers are stressing on the fact that it is going to come soon. The reason they all gave for the delay in announcement that the company wants everyone to focus on the movie right now. They want this movie, Dragon Ball Super: Broly to be a huge success. Well, I think it has been a blockbuster hit anyway.
According to AnimeNewsNetwork, The Mainichi Shimbun newspaper reported on Tuesday that the Dragon Ball Super: Broly anime film has earned more than 2 billion yen (US$18.1 million) after 11 days at the box office in Japan. The film is the fastest film in the franchise to hit the 2 billion yen mark. The film has also sold more than 1.5 million tickets. Can you believe this? 1.5 million tickets? This is just too crazy in my perspective.
The film opened in Japan on December 14, and it sold more than 820,000 tickets and earned more than 1,050,000,000 yen (about US$9.26 million) in its first three days in Japan, topping the box office in its first weekend. The film had sold more than 1 million tickets and earned more than 1.3 billion yen (about US$11.6 million) in its first six days at the box office. 1.3 billion in just 6 days, now that’s insane. Well, the show isn’t over yet.
Also, it seems like Toei Animation has speculated that the movie will earn more than 5 billion yen which is approximately around 44 million USD! I think the special 4DX screenings has pumped up the earning a bit in Japan as compared to the normal screenings. Also, the movie is earning so much in Japan only right now. Just imagine, what will happen once it goes international and hit the big countries like USA, Canada, UK, etc.!?
Dragon Ball Super: Broly was specifically written by Akira Toriyama himself and he was the one to create all the newly seen designs. We had Tatsuya Nagamine as the director of the movie who has supervised some great movies like One Piece Film Z. Then, we had the fan favorite, Naohiro Shintani who served as the animation director. This movie is really a masterpiece and the theme song, ‘Blizzard’ has also gone pretty viral lately.
I personally think and WANT this movie to earn more than 100 million USD. I want everyone in this world to recognize Dragon Ball. Even though our community is so large, there are numerous people who don’t even know about Dragon Ball. This movie is a great chance to show everyone that Dragon Ball is still in the game and is going to rise to the top once again. I am pretty sure you all feel the same as me, right?
Well, the movie is going to officially released internationally pretty soon. People in America would get to see the English Dub starting January 16, 2019 and some of the countries are getting the movie even sooner. I think the first international debut would be around 27-28 December, 2018. Well, that’s it for now. I hope you liked this small piece of information about the movie.
