Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero has not yet finished its theatrical programming in Japan that TOEI Animation has already started working on the next film. However, the box office reports of the latest film effort linked to Akira Toriyama’s masterpiece were below expectations.
To be clear, the numbers covered here refer to the first month of distribution of each of the films compared. The user Hypea well-known face in the industry, has created an iconography to compare the box office receipts for the first month of ‘Super Hero’ with the 3 previous features.
If we notice a certain linearity in terms of receipts for Battle of Gods (312 rooms), Resurrection of Freezer (653 rises initially, 390 at the end of the month) e DBS: Broly (467 screens), as regards the last film, the decline is evident. In fact, we are talking about about 14.5 million dollars, exactly half of the previous productions. In any case, it is good to remember that these numbers are in no way an indication of a ‘flop’, since they are still high overall, but reflect the inconveniences of the anomalous distribution of ‘Super Hero’ (371 rooms). The film was in fact postponed, due to the hacker attack against TOEI Animation, not to mention that it received an ambiguous marketing campaign and the value of the yen which was higher in 2018.
All factors that have therefore contributed to a drop in collections which are still quite important. And you, instead, what do you think of these numbers? Let us know with a comment below.
