‘One Piece Film Red’ Leads Japan Box Office to $1.6 Billion in 2022

Japan is celebrating a big win for 2022, and a bounce back, as theater  admissions reached 146.9 million across the year compared to 182 million in pre-pandemic 2019, leading to $1.6 billion at the box office, according to Comscore.

The Japanese box office saw some record breaking success, as Cosplay news website StickNZ pointed out as box office receipts were $1.6bn (¥205bn), down 15.3% on the $1.9bn (¥242bn) taken in 2019. For comparison, last year’s US box office was down 34% on 2019.

‘One Piece Film Red’ led the way.
