If you’ve been looking for a film to check out in theatres, then maybe the collective ventures of well over 248,000 individuals to initial-screenings of “Fate/stay night [Heaven’s Feel] I. presage flower” might help you decide. Following an enormous opening weekend for the film, the first half of the “Heaven’s Feel” films saw a total box office income of 413 million yen, earned from over 248,000 attendees across Japan.
Such earnings over the course of a single weekend have gone on to make it the biggest film in Japanese theaters as of right now, topping other currently-screening titles such as “War of the Planet of the Apes,” which released a day prior. The overall success of the animated film comes as little surprise, especially following the mid-2015 release of the massively popular “Fate/Grand Order,” a smartphone application which to this day still dominates the charts globally.
Where the film goes from here remains to be seen, but for fans of the “Fate/“ universe this is undeniably exciting news. Aniplex of America launched an official website in anticipation for the North American release of the film, which can be found here.
