posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Film opened in Japan on August 3 at #4, 500 million yen gross on opening weekend

Philippine film distributor Pioneer Films briefly posted an announcement on Friday that it is screening the My Hero Academia: Two Heroes anime film in the Philippines. It did not reveal an opening date for the film. The post has since been deleted.

The film opened in Japan on August 3. It earned 500,320,000 yen (about US$4.49 million) in its first three days and ranked #4 in its opening weekend.

Funimation is screening the film in the United States, and it describes the film:

The climactic finals are over, and U.A. is getting ready for the summer training camp. Deku and All Might receive an invitation from a certain person to go overseas to a giant artificial moving city called I-Island. This island, a kind of “science Hollywood” that gathers the knowledge of scientists from around the world, is holding an exhibition called I-Expo showcasing the results of Quirk and hero item research. In the midst of all this, Deku meets a Quirkless girl named Melissa and remembers his own Quirkless past. Out of the blue, the impregnable security system the island boasts is hacked by villains, and all the people on the island are taken as hostages! Now, a plan that could shake hero society has been put into motion! The man who holds the key to it all is the number one hero and Symbol of Peace, All Might.

New characters for the film include David Shield (voiced by Katsuhisa Namase, young David Shield voiced by Ryohei Kimura), Melissa Shield (voiced by Mirai Shida), and Wolfram (voiced by Rikiya Koyama). Melissa is a quirkless girl whom Deku meets on I-Island, and her father David was a friend of All Might in his younger days. David is a scientist who makes hero support items, and Melissa works hard to follow in his footsteps. Wolfram is a leader of a mysterious villain team that aims to overthrow the Hero Society.

Original manga creator Kōhei Horikoshi is credited with the original work, character designs, and as chief supervisor. Returning staff members include director Kenji Nagasaki at BONES, scriptwriter Yousuke Kuroda, character designer Yoshihiko Umakoshi, and composer Yuki Hayashi. TOHO is distributing the film. Masaki Suda is performing the film's theme song "Long Hope Philia." amazarashi's Hiromu Akita wrote and composed the piece.
