Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection F Becomes One Of The Top Ten Anime Releases Of All Time

Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection "F"
Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection “F” opened to an impressive debut last week, making more than $3 million in only a few days and became the first independent movie to rank amongst the top 10 highest grossing domestic anime of all time.
According to FUNimation Entertainment, since its release last Tuesday, Resurrection “F” has grossed an impressive $5.97 million at the North American box office.
“It’s a great film that loyal DBZ fans, and fans of anime, have helped push into the record books in just 6 days,” FUNimation EVP and COO Michael DuBoise said. “Great word of mouth, extremely positive reviews, plus a film that appeals to core fans and is creating new fans, have led to sold-out shows, repeat viewings, and additional theaters being added through Wednesday.”
A recent Deadline report shows that DBZ: Resurrection F brought in $3.57 million in its opening week. Theaters are reported to have sold out in major markets, and with a budget of only $5 million it’s been speculated that the film could have brought in almost $20 million domestically, in a single week.
“This film is a resounding victory on all levels,” said David Wengrod, VP of Theatrical Distribution for FUNimation Entertainment.
The movie is now the 8th highest anime opening of all time and the first limited event theatrical release to crack the box office Top 10.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
