After much dilly dallying and confusion, PVR Pictures finally revealed the release date for Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie for India. The movie will release in the country on June 30, 2022.
PVR Pictures released a poster with the release date to commemorate the announcement.
PVR Pictures had earlier teased the release of the movie in India, as they released a poster of the movie on their official instagram account on March 13, 2022. However, confusion ensued, as PVR removed their post later.
In their statement to ANN, the distributers confirmed that they hadn’t licensed the movie for Indian theatres at that point of time. While no additional details were revealed regarding their Instagram post or its removal, PVR Pictures did confirm that they were planning to bring more anime films to Indian theatres in the future.
This change in stance irked many fans of the movie in India, and also led them to believe that Jujutsu Kaisen 0 would not release in the country.
PVR Pictures responded to this in their story teasing the release, on June 16, 2022.
“Some of you lost hope in us. Some said it would never happen. Some thought there was a ‘curse’. But as always, we have got your back. 2022’s biggest anime release is coming to Indian cinemas,” the distributers wrote in their story.
The Jujutsu Kaisen 0 movie released in North American theatres on March 18, 2022, in both subbed and dubbed versions. It grossed US$14.8 million in its first weekend in the U.S. Box Office, racking up an average of US$6,482 per-screen at 2,286 locations.
