‘The Boy and the Heron’ broke many records in the United States. Hayao Miyazaki has achieved what no Ghibli film has achieved in its nearly 40-year history

And it is now Ghibli’s third highest-grossing film in the United States.

In the United States they had to wait until this weekend to see ‘The Boy and the Heron’, but that never played against them, since the film. Hayao Miyazaki It destroyed the box office and broke many records. He has now been dethroned ‘Renaissance: A Beyoncé Movie’ to take the first place thanks to the 12.8 million dollars it earned.

great success

That number 1 is already amazing for a foreign animated film, but we have other examples in the case of ‘Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero’ last year. However, no Ghibli film has achieved this so far, so we have the first record.

The second is a direct consequence of the first, as ‘The Boy and the Heron’ also achieved the best opening to a Miyazaki film to datefar surpassing the $3.5 million that ‘Ponyo’ collected during its first weekend in North American theaters.

In addition, those 12.8 million They currently make it the third highest-grossing Ghibli film of all time in the United States.. Ahead are only ‘Arriety and the World of Tiny’ (19.2 million dollars) and ‘Ponyo’, which closed its commercial run with 15.7 million.

Clearly there is 2.205 salary where the movie appears to favor it, but it was a risky bet on the part of GKIDS. The move turned out well, as ‘The Boy and the Heron’ also achieved the best premiere of all time for that distributor. Third record.

Now we have to see how it goes. ‘The Boy and the Heron’ in cinemas in North America, but a priori it will easily achieve the honor of being Ghibli’s highest-grossing film in that country.
