New Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie featuring Daichi Miura’s music has $7 million opening night.


Based on the latest reports, Dragon Ball Super: Broly, the latest film from Toei’s long running Dragon Ball franchise has had a big opening night, to the tune of $7.06 million. This was enough to overtake the box office draw for the #1 movie in the country, The Upside ($1.7 million), and Aquaman ($1.2 million) for the day, qualifying it as the 5th highest earning theatrical opening for an anime movie of all time. This also outdoes the previous record set by the film’s predecessor, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ back in 2015 with a $1.8 million opening. Projections show the film may take in upwards of $15 million over the weekend.

The theme song of the movie is entitled ‘Blizzard’, which was released on December 19, 2018 to promote the initial Japanese release of the movie and is performed by Daichi Miura. Miura had previously provided the opening theme for 2016’s Kamen Rider Ex-Aid entitled EXCITE, which hit #1 on the Oricon music charts. Additionally, Miura provided the theme song for the Ex-Aid summer movie, entitled ‘Life is Beautiful’.

Released in conjunction between 20th Century Fox and Funimation, Dragon Ball Super: Broly is in theaters now in 2D and IMAX.
