Funimation Films recently released My Hero Academia: Two Heroes in North America earlier this week and the movie has already made a lot of money. The film has already made nearly $2 million thus far.

Funimation Films announced in a press release that My Hero Academia: Two Heroes scored $1200 per screen revenue the first day it was released increasing to $1,400 by the end of the second day.

The film ranked number 3 at the Box Office even though it was only released in just over 500 theaters in the US and Canada.

“We were convinced that moviegoers would come out for ‘My Hero Academia: Two Heroes’ based on the incredible responses we received to the franchise at our San Diego Comic Con panel and our sold-out world premiere during Anime Expo,” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and President of Funimation. “The box office success to date is extremely gratifying and we are already working with exhibitors to add additional theater locations and showtimes to keep up with the tremendous demand from audiences.”

Due to the demand of the film, some theaters are going to increase show times on Friday and Sunday at select locations.

Both English dub and Japanese dub with English subtitles will be screening. That said, the Japanese dub is airing only on September 29th and on October 2nd.

You can also read a small synopsis of the movie down below. The success of My Hero Academia: Two Heroes should encourage Funimation Films to release even more anime films in North American cinemas.

Our favorite young hero-in training is in for a wild ride when villains threaten the artificial moving city, I-Island. Deku and All Might receive an invitation to I-Expo, the world’s leading exhibition of Quirk abilities and hero item innovations! Amid the excitement, sponsors, and pros from all over, Deku meets Melissa, a girl who is Quirkless just like he once was. Suddenly, I-Expo’s top-of-the-line security system gets hacked by villains, and a sinister plan is set in motion. It’s a serious threat to hero society and one man holds the key to it all—the symbol of peace, All Might.
