Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Train surpasses Spirited Away, now the #1 All-Time Japanese Film Worldwide
After a lot of weeks at #1 in the Japanese box office, Demon Slayer Kimetsu no Yaiba: Mugen Train passed yet another milestone. This time, the movie has surpassed Spirited Away to become the #1 All-Time Japanese Film Worldwide.
The Movie itself has sold a total of 27.45 million tickets and earned a total of 37,776,680,150 yen in Japan. Yes folks, that is just Japan. However, the movie has also earned over US$399.18 million from other countries, including Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Vietnam. This surpasses the US$383,397,782 worldwide box office total for Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away movie.
Mugen Train also surpassed Spirited Away at the local Japanese box office last December. The Hayao Miyazaki film has sat at the #1 spot for over a decade, earning 31.68 billion yen, and that includes revival screenings. However, Mugen Train reached the crucial 30 Billion Yen milestone a lot faster than Spirited Away. The Ghibli movie took 253 days to reach the milestone, while Mugen Train took only around 80 days to reach that goal.
The movie has now screened here in Singapore, opening last November. Here’s how Odex describes its story:
Falling forever into an endless dream… Tanjiro and the group have completed their rehabilitaWon training at the Bu_erfly Mansion, and they arrive to their next mission on the Mugen Train, where over 40 people have disappeared in a very short period of Wme. Tanjiro and Nezuko, along with Zenitsu and Inosuke, join one of the most powerful swordsmen within the Demon Slayer Corps, Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku, to face the demon aboard the Mugen Train on track to despair
