"Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'" Closes Run With Historic $8M Box Office and Top Ten Ranking

Film Earns Unprecedented Box Office and #9 Spot on List of Highest Grossing Anime

FLOWER MOUND, Texas, Aug. 13, 2015 — (PRNewswire) — FUNimation® Entertainment announced today that its limited event-style theatrical release of the anime film "Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'" has shattered industry expectations – closing out its official run at $8 Million in North American box office gross. Opening just 9 days ago with a $1.97 Million opening night box office, "Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'" vaulted into the Top 10 list of highest grossing domestic anime films of all time – a feat that took just 5 days and landed the film ahead of two major studio releases by director Hayao Miyazaki – "Howl's Moving Castle" ($4.7M) and "The Wind Rises" ($5.2M). During its short run, the film was in the Top 10 overall box office gross numerous times and earned the highest average per screen among all releases on three separate days.

"Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' has been a phenomenal success for not only FUNimation Films but our theatrical partners as well," said Michael DuBoise, EVP and COO of FUNimation. "We have a talented team and unique relationship with millions of passionate fans. We've demonstrated how the right combination of strategic marketing and targeted outreach plus an outstanding film can deliver record breaking results." 

"It's truly gratifying to see how this movie resonated with fans," said Gen Fukunaga, Founder and CEO of FUNimation. "I'm so thankful to the loyal fans who embraced this movie and who have been with us on this journey since we first introduced Dragon Ball Z to American audiences twenty years ago."

"Because of the ongoing demand from both fans and theaters owners, Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F' will continue to screen as an 'encore release' at various theaters across North America thru August 17," said David Wengrod, VP of Theatrical Event Distribution. "Fans should check with their local theaters or DragonBallZ.com to determine exact locations."

FUNimation will release final box office numbers for the movie next week.
