My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission has officially gone Plus Ultra thanks to breaking box office series record by 200% in its first four days of its release in Japan! The third feature film in the My Hero Academia series opened in Japanese theaters August 6th. In its first four days it earned approximately 940 million yen ($8.5 million US), with 720K ticket sales.
My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, the first film in the My Hero Academia franchise, earned 500 million yen ($4.5 million US) during its first three days in Japan during August of 2018. It earned a total of 1.72 billion yen ($15.6 million US) in Japan during its box office run.
During its first three days of opening in Japan the second feature film, My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising, earned 422 million yen ($3.8 million US) back in December of 2019. It would go on to earn 1.79 billion yen ($16.2 million US) in Japan.
By all indications, My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission is likely to become the highest-grossing My Hero Academia film to date in the franchise thanks to having already earned half of the previous films' box office earnings.
The My Hero Academia films have done well in the North American box office as well. My Hero Academia: Two Heroes earned $5.7 million at the box office and joined the top 10 highest-grossing anime films (at the time).
My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising almost doubled the first feature film's gross during its North American run in theaters. It opened #1 at the box office in the United States and went on to earn $10 million and joined the top 10 highest-grossing anime films of all time at number eight.
