‘Your Name’ Director’s New Film ‘Suzume no Tojimari’ Debuts to Great Success in Japan



Makoto Shinkai’s new film “Suzume no Tojimari” did well in Japan with around $10 million in its first opening weekend.

Those numbers, for example, easily top Marvel’s “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” which grossed $2.47 million. I mean, it more than tripled the value.

“One Piece: Red,” which has been out for a while, took third place with $1.1 million. The box office highlights the dominance of anime in Japanese cinema.

Have fun watching:

The plot follows Suzume, a young resident of a small town in the Kyushu region. One day, she finds a traveler looking for a door and finds herself on a great adventure.

17-year-old Suzume’s journey begins in a sleepy Kyushu town when she meets a young man who tells her, “I’m looking for a door. What Suzume finds is a single weathered gate that stands amidst the ruins, as if protected from any disaster. Seemingly hypnotized by her power, Suzume grabs the doorknob… Doors begin to open one after another across Japan, unleashing destruction on anyone nearby. Suzume must close these portals to prevent further disaster.

Remember that ‘Suzume no Tojimari’ will be released in Brazilian theaters in early 2023. But there is still no specific date.
