This weekend, the film Jujutsu Kaisen 0 (Gekij-ban Jujutsu Kaisen 0) will be released in theatres, with the main cinema opening on Friday, March 18, after preview showing on March 16 and 17.

On December 24, the film premiered in Japan. In its first three days, it grossed 2,694,128,150 yen (about $23.5 million) and topped the box office list for the opening weekend. In the 38 days after its debut, the picture has sold 7,191,107 tickets for a total of 9,839,644,200 yen (about $85.1 million).

The film is based on Gege Akutami's manga prequel narrative Jujutsu Kaisen 0 Tokyo Toritsu Jujutsu Kt Senmon Gakk (Jujutsu Kaisen 0: Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School), with MAPPA animating and TOHO releasing the film. The manga Jujutsu Kaisen 0 was published by Viz Media in January 2021, and it tells the story as follows:

Yuta Okkotsu is a nervous high school student who is suffering from a serious problem—his childhood friend Rika has turned into a Curse and won't leave him alone. Since Rika is no ordinary Curse, his plight is noticed by Satoru Gojo, a teacher at Jujutsu High, a school where fledgling exorcists learn how to combat Curses. Gojo convinces Yuta to enroll, but can he learn enough in time to confront the Curse that haunts him?

Yuta Okkotsu's voice was provided by Megumi Ogata, and Rika Orimoto's was provided by Kana Hanazawa.

The television anime Jujutsu Kaisen started in October 2020 and ran for 24 episodes. Check out the Jujutsu Kaisen 0 review.
