BORUTO -NARUTO THE MOVIE- had revenues of 680 million yen in three days!
BORUTO -NARUTO THE MOVIE- (ボルト‐ナルト・ザ・ムービー‐) is the latest Naruto movie series, which is gaining popularity in Japan. No matter where you go in Japan, you will hear the news about Naruto. The movie has grossed up to 680,134,700 yen in three days, an estimated 516,146 tickets and 268 theaters.
Moreover, Boruto movie already broke the first three days highest-grossing record of Naruto movie series. 270,488,500 yen on the first day and 409,646,200 yen on the second day.
However, Boruto -Naruto the Movie- is the new generation next to THE LAST -NARUTO THE MOVIE- (ザ・ラスト ‐ナルト・ザ・ムービー‐), the previous movie released in 2014. The new story will probably change a lot. My first questions: What would happen if Naruto is not the main character? What do you do when Naruto story is not the Naruto story?! That is extremely challenging for Masashi Kishimoto (岸本 斉史) the Naruto story writer because there are Naruto fans around the world, the change does not happen overnight. I hope the new generation would be excellent and even more fun.
Boruto -Naruto the Movie- directed by Hiroyuki Yamashita (山下 宏幸), was released in Japan theaters on August 7, 2015. There are a lot of new characters, and most of them are children, as you can see in the video trailers.
