One Piece Film Red, Crunchyroll’s latest big IP box office release, earned $9.48 million over its first weekend in North American theaters, good for second place behind Black Adam.
One Piece was screened in 2,367 theaters across the U.S. and Canada over the weekend, averaging $4,003 per location. Once again, that was good for second-best after Black Adam.
One Piece’s solid opening weekend could be seen as a bit of a letdown, however, when compared to Crunchyroll’s other recent debuts. Jujutsu Kaisen 0 opened earlier this year with $18 million, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero in August with $21.1 million, and back in 2021 Demon Slayer the Movie: Mugen Train opened with $21.2 million. Those films went on to gross $34.5 million (Jujutsu), $38.1 million (Super Hero), and $49.5 million (Demon Slayer) over their U.S. runs.
