Deku, Todoroki, and Bakugo deal with a challenging mission they have ever experienced so far.
The highly anticipated third anime film in the My Hero Academia series, My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission, has finally arrived in North American movie theaters. The release of this film has been much awaited in the region because it shows Deku, Todoroki, and Bakugo tackling the most difficult mission they have yet faced as young Heroes-in-training.
This summer, the movie had its formal premiere in Japan. Fans of My Hero Academia will surely have an amazing weekend because the movie officially premiered in the United States on Friday. All of this was made possible by the anime streaming and licensing company Funimation.
More than 1,500 theaters in Canada and the US are showing the film. However, sources claim that there will be a very limited group of screenings. Although the cause of this was not stated, it is most likely tied to COVID-19-related health and safety protocols.
The movie’s gross sales as of the start of a new week have been revealed. My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission, according to a recent report, made $2.8 million on its opening night alone, placing it fourth at the box office. Considering these gross earnings, the movie has already amassed an international gross of USD 32 million.
Our lead cast Deku, Todoroki, and Bakugo have just two hours to save the planet in this third film. Deku learns that he is wanted for a crime against the country that he didn’t do, and it’s up to him and his friends to stop Humarise’s evil plans to eliminate all Quirks.
As many countries continue to ban theater screenings in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, there is still no word as of yet for that outside of North America who was hoping to see the third My Hero Academia in their country.
