Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F has gone on to gross $5.56 million in the US. That total has surpassed the amount of revenue taken in by last year’s Dragon Ball Z: Battle of the Gods, which grossed a total of $2.8 million.
In addition to breaking the records for per-screen average revenue and being ranked in the top 5 films of the week, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F has become the #1 highest-grossing indie animated film of all-time and has gone on to surpass Hayao Miyazaki’s Howl’s Moving Castle ($4.7 million USD) and The Wind Rises ($5.2 million). A feat that this film has accomplished with a week long limited-run. A run that still has not ended.
Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F grossed $51.6 million overseas and was the biggest opening in Japan for 2015.
