Two months ago, on October 16, 2020, the “Demon Slayer” sequel was released in Japanese cinemas. After the film already two weeks ago made it to the second place of the most successful films of all time in Japan, it has now reached the next milestone.
Film Just Behind The First Place
According to Oricon, more than 22.54 million tickets were sold for the film in 59 days, representing a total of approximately 30.29 billion yen (approximately 239.91 million euros).
This puts the “Demon Slayer” sequel in the ranking of the most successful films just behind Hayao Miyazaki’s anime film “Chihiro’s Journey to the Magic Land”, which took 30.8 billion yen (approximately 248.69 million euros) during its cinema life in Japan and took 253 days to reach the 30 billion yen mark.
In other countries, “Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train” is expected to be shown in cinemas in February 2021. It is not yet known in which cities and language versions the film will be shown.
Tanjiro and his companions have completed their rehabilitation training in the butterfly estate and reach the site of their next mission. More than 40 people disappeared in the “Mugen train” within a very short time. Tanjiro, Nezuko, Zen’itsu, and Inosuke join one of the most powerful swordsmen among the demon hunters: the Pillar of the Flames kyoryu Rengoku. Together they want to face the demon lurking in the “Mugen train” and embark on a journey into the darkness.
