Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is leaving Japanese theaters after today. The anime film has been screening in cinemas across Japan since December and it looks like fans made sure that it would be a huge success in the country. A new report confirms that the prequel brought in 13.7 billion yen in the five-month theatrical run.

The numbers were shared by Mantan Web which confirms that Jujutsu Kaisen 0 sold 9.77 million tickets up until May 28, its 156th day in theaters. The film's current total at the Japanese box office is 13.7 billion yen (US$120.77 million).

However, this isn't the final total for the movie just yet. After all, the numbers from its last day May 29 have not yet been revealed. With that in mind, there's a good chance Jujutsu Kaisen 0 drew in a huge crowd on Day 157, thanks to its final stage event.

It was previously confirmed that the final Jujutsu Kaisen 0 stage event will take place at Toho Cinema Shinjuku on May 29, 2022, after the 1:00 PM screening. The event was also attended by Megumi Ogata, Mikako Komatsu, and Koki Uchiyama who played Yuta Okkotsu, Maki Zen'in, and Toge Inumaki, respectively.

Although the movie is finally leaving theaters in Japan, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 will continue to screen internationally. It has been reported that the film will premiere in theaters in Sweden on June 3, 2022. In addition to that, the film confirmed its Italian release date will be set on June 9, 2022. The latest update comes courtesy of a Thai-dubbed trailer for the movie which announces that it will be screening in cinemas across Thailand on June 23, 2022.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is also set for a home media release later this year. The film will reportedly be released on DVD and Blu-ray on September 21, 2022.
