The film My Hero Academia: Two Heroes earned 500,320,000 yen (about US$4.49 million) in its first three days to rank #4 in its opening weekend. The movie has since earned more than 1.5 billion yen (about US$13.46 million) at the Japanese box office.
The film's home video release will include a new bonus anime All Might: Rising The Animation that will adapt the "No.0 ALL MIGHT: RISING" one-shot manga given out to the film's first million audience members in Japan. Viz Media released the 10-page manga for free in English on its website.
The series will get a stage play next spring and Legendary Entertainment is producing a Hollywood live-action adaptation. The manga has inspired three television anime series, and a fourth season is in the works. The third 25-episode series premiered on April 7.
