Toei Animation Sets New Box Office Record With ¥32 Billion in 2022

Film production company Toei Animation announced on Wednesday that its total box office earnings from 1 January to 31 December 2022 added up to a staggering ¥32,563,660,570 yen (~ US$246 million). This amount surpasses its previous record high of ¥17,980,254,340 yen (~ US$135 million).

The great returns are thanks to the strong-performing movies such as the long-running One Piece Film Red and The First Slam Dunk films as major contributors to its new record high.

One Piece Film Red opened in Japan on 6th August last year and has earned over ¥19 billion yen (~ US$144 million) after 157 days. The First Slam Dunk has sold 5.27 million tickets in the 38 days since the film opened in Japan, ranking #1 at the box office for six consecutive weeks so far.
