What about Saturday earnings?

Is this even good, how much did it cost Funi?

I already saw Vegeta sing about bingo on Youtube, so I don't need to see the movie now.

2.2 millon is a lot money for a movie of Dragon Ball Z, screening in the USA.
With this numbers coming right now, FUNimation won't hesitate to keep the movie in theaters a little longer.

Would it be safe to assume it's over 3 million taking in weekend numbers? Not bad.

I'm glad to see that this movie has done very well in theaters. The local theater that showed the movie only did so because it's management thought that the local anime club was big enough to warrant showing it if we could get enough people to come . . . not only did it sell out every day, the first night, they extended the showing first to its largest screen-room, and then to include a second screen-room because of the amount of people that showed up. They told us that, if we pre-ordered enough tickets, they're more than willing to bring Ghost in the Shell: Arise around when it comes out. Thanks to Dragon Ball Z, I can exchange those two and three hour drives (one way) to see anime screenings for forty-five minute trips.

Man, imagine if that movie was actually great and had a lot of word of mouth. Myself and my group of friends are giant Dragon Ball fans but had no desire to see it. I could imagine the movie doing several times as well if it had gotten good press after its Japanese release.

If you're Dragon Ball fans, I don't see how this movie could let you down. Now, if you're Dragon Ball Z fans ...

Even for select screenings, this is good! Hope it can go past $10 million.

I am curious by that statement. Are you suggesting that this is more like the original Dragon Ball than DBZ or am I misinterpreting your statement?

This sucks. Funimation finally shows a anime film close to where I live and I won't be able to make it. Sad Glad it's doing well for them.

DBZ is pretty mainstream and luckily it's mainstream enough that it did this well but something like GitS, I'm not sure about but would like to see nonetheless
