Jujutsu Kaisen 0 impressed at domestic and international box office

In March last year, alongside the release of the first trailer, it was announcement that Jujutsu Kaisen 0 would debut in the winter of 2021. Then, following an event in Japan, the production team then confirmed that the film would premiere on Christmas Eve.

Thankfully, the pandemic hasn’t affected the release of Jujutsu Kaisen 0, with the anime film making its theatrical debut in Japanese theaters on December 24, 2021.

The response from domestic fans has been outstanding, with over a million tickets sold on opening day and topping the box office charts by income over $23 million in just three days. In fact, after its national tour in Japan in April, the film has enlarged over $110 million at the box office – although other reports that those numbers are significantly higher, at around $190 million in August 2022.

Incredibly, this makes Jujutsu Kaisen 0 the second biggest opening day in Japanese box office history – only behind the phenomenon that was Demon Slayer: Mugen Train ie, the highest-grossing film of 2021 worldwide and the 14th-highest-grossing film of Japanese box office history.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 was finally released in theaters outside of Japan in March 2022 and was originally expected to gross US$8-13 million in its opening weekend – it would end up earning over US$17.7 million and would land second to The Batman.

However, not all anime fans could find the time to go to the local theater to watch Jujutsu Kaisen 0 on the big screen, so when will the movie be released for OTT streaming and which platform will show the movie?

Jujutsu Kaisen 0: OTT streaming platform and release date confirmed

At the recent Crunchyroll Expo event, the streaming giant revealed that the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie would be made available to subscribers through their global anime platform.

Crunchyroll too confirmed that Jujutsu Kaisen 0 would premiere for OTT streaming worldwide on September 21st – although it has yet to be revealed if this includes both subtitled and dubbed options.

The anime streaming service was the only major platform to simulcast season 1 of the series last year outside of Japan. Crunchyroll is also, in partnership with Funimation, the team bring the film in North American and UK theaters in March.

The Crunchyroll News page was also the first outlet to share details on the North American theatrical release, captioning their press release as “Crunchyroll to bring the movie JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 to theaters on March 18th”.

Fans should note that while Funimation was distributing the film outside of Japan in conjunction with Crunchyroll, the new film is unlikely to land on the streaming service. Indeed, Funimation is to merge with its counterpart Crunchy after selling it to Sony last year for $1.175 billion. Starting with the spring anime slate, all simulcast titles will be streamed exclusively on the Crunchyroll platform.

Fans should also note that Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is highly unlikely to land on platforms such as Amazon Prime, Netflix, or Disney Plus outside of Japan and other Asian territories for any significant amount of time.
