It was being observed that due to the absence of any strong competitors in the Japan Box office. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 returned to No 1 position in its 5th weekend after being in the second position for almost two consecutive weeks.
And according to the research, it has been found that the film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 made 490 million yen i.e.4.3 million USD on 288,000 admissions on its fifth weekend of January 22-23. And this was 108 percent of the previous weekend’s box office gross i.e. 454 million yen.
And it was observed that the reason behind the upliftment in the position of Jujutsu Kaisen 0 may be due to the distribution of the “MAPPA-painted ‘Pure Love’ visual board (Yuuta Okkotsu),” as this was the second bonus item for theatergoers since January 22. This was the reason that attracted people visiting on a repeat basis.
And it has been found out that the third bonus item will be distributed from February 5 and it will be followed by the fourth item which will be distributed from February 19.
