One Piece Film: Red UK Box Office Opens With £500,000!


Anime Limited and Toei Animation are thrilled to announce that One Piece Film: Red has earned over £500,000 in its opening weekend, becoming the biggest One Piece film in the UK and Ireland. A musical action-adventure based on the world famous manga series by Eiichiro Oda, One Piece Film: Red opened in over 270 screens, including IMAX, Dolby Cinemas, and 4DX, and is in cinemas now.

This incredible milestone comes after a concentrated marketing campaign that saw a large replica of protagonist Monkey D. Luffy’s trademark hat displayed outside London King’s Cross Station from 4th-6th November, the weekend of release. Excited fans, cosplayers, and critics came out in force to celebrate the film at the Leicester Square premiere event, where director Gorō Taniguchi, Chief Animation Director Masayuki Sato, and Producer Hiraoki Shibata introduced the film, and signed autographs for lucky fans.

This strong debut continues to assert One Piece Film: Red’s status as a global phenomenon, following its record-breaking success in Japan, where it held #1 at the Weekend Box Office for over 11 weeks to become the country’s Highest Grossing Film of the Year. The film’s main theme song, “New Genesis” by Ado, also made history by becoming the first Japanese song to top Apple Music’s Global Top 100 charts. Listen to the soundtrack.

Uta — the most beloved singer in the world. Renowned for concealing her own identity when performing, her voice has come to be described as “otherworldly.” Now, for the first time ever, Uta will reveal herself to the world at a live concert. As the venue fills with all kinds of Uta fans — excited pirates, the Navy watching closely, and the Straw Hats led by Luffy who simply came to enjoy her sonorous performance — the voice that the whole world has been waiting for is about to resound. The story begins with the shocking fact that she is Shanks’ daughter.

One Piece Film: Red is still in UK and Irish cinemas. To find out you nearest cinema showing the film and buy tickets, head to the film’s official website.
