Demon Slayer Film Finally Crosses 30 Billion Yen Mark in 59 Days



The film’s co-distributor Toho and Aniplex announced today that Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba the Movie: Mugen Train had earned 30,289,307,700 yen on 22,539,385 admissions since its release in Japan. Reaching the 30 billion yen mark in 59 days is the fastest record in Japanese cinema history. The current top-grossing film of all-time, Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away needed 255 days to reach the record.


As reported, the film has already become the second top-grossing film of all time in Japan, surpassing Titanic (26.2 billion yen). Now, it needs only 600 million yen to become the top-grossing film by breaking the current record of 30.8 billion yen marked by Spirited Away in 2001. 


The film was released in 403 theaters nationwide (including 38 IMAX theaters) on October 16, and is currently being screened in 379 theaters. From December 26, MX4D and 4DX screenings will be held at select 82 theaters across Japan. Its first 300,000 theatergoers will receive the “Mugen Train Ticket” style acrylic key chain as a bonus.
