Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero premiered in Japanese theaters on June 11. Despite its initial popularity, the film is actually off to a pretty bad start in terms of box office revenue. Domestically, the movie may not have performed well, but we are yet to see its international earnings.
Crunchyroll will screen the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie in theaters in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., and Ireland on August 19, 2022. The film’s first 20 minutes were also screened at the San Diego Comic-Con.
A new trailer for the film has just been revealed for the upcoming movie, and I bet you will love the blazing action scenes that are typical of the franchise:
In this latest movie, the attention has been shifted from Goku to Gohan and Piccolo. The younger generation is finally taking over the show, but is the audience ready for it yet? After years of being Goku fans, the shift might be too sudden. This might be one of the factors that led to the low turnout.
You can rarely see Goku in the trailer, and Gohan and Piccolo are making the most out of the action scenes.
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero boasts a CGI setting, another factor that sets it apart from all the previous movies from the franchise that were 2D animated.
The film has earned a total of $15.98 million as of now. The number will considerably increase after its international debut, and I hope it can surpass its jerky start.
