The animated film “ONE PIECE FILM RED” has earned 19.7 billion yen at the box office and attracted more than 14.27 million viewers in its 177 days of release, reaching a worldwide box office of 31.9 billion yen.
To commemorate this milestone, Eiichiro Oda, the author of the original story, has released a visual to commemorate the 31.9 billion yen worldwide box office mark.
The movie, which was released on August 6 last year, got off to a rocket start, attracting 1.57 million people and earning over 2.25 billion yen on August 6 and 7.
On August 25, the 20th day of its release, the movie reached the 10 billion yen mark.
The film continued to break records and became the No. 1 film at the box office in 2022, and when it closed on January 29, 2023, it had grossed 19.7 billion yen and attracted more than 14.27 million viewers in its 177 days of release. This record ranks 8th on the all-time domestic box office list.
In addition, the overseas box office totaled 12.2 billion yen (as of January 27, at 129.48 yen to the dollar), and the worldwide box office totaled 31.9 billion yen (in some regions).
To commemorate this record, a commemorative visual by Eiichiro Oda, the author of the original story, has arrived. The visual shows Luffy covering his eyes with his hands and smiling broadly.
On January 28th, the day before the end of the movie’s six-month run, a finale party was held as the last event before the end of the run. Mayumi Tanaka, the Straw Hat crew, and Kaori Nazuka, who plays Uta, gathered to express their gratitude. The event, which was broadcast live nationwide, was a great success, just as the title “Grand Banquet” implies. On the day of the film’s release on January 29, many fans flocked to the theaters, and many took to social networking sites to express their regret at the film’s ending.
