The JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 Movie released on December 24, 2021 in Japan, and the official Twitter has revealed a new post-release poster visual featuring the protagonist Okkotsu Yuta, in what they describe is “an important scene of the main part of the movie, which was attracting attention among many original fans and readers even before the movie was released.” You can check out the cool visual below:
Prior to its release, the film revealed several character designs and a key visual. It sold incredibly well and earned over $20 million USD in its opening weekend. The latest box office information also revealed that it mobilized a total of 4,314,027 people and earned 5,873,064,900 yen (~50 million USD) in the 11 days since release. You can also watch the main trailer:
The movie is a prequel to the 1st season of JUJUTSU KAISEN, and it covers Volume 0 of the manga. VIZ licensed it in English, and they describe the story:
Yuta Okkotsu is a nervous high school student who is suffering from a serious problem. His childhood friend Rika has turned into a Curse and won’t leave him alone. Since Rika is no ordinary Curse, his plight is noticed by Satoru Gojo, a teacher at Jujutsu High, a school where fledgling exorcists learn how to combat Curses. Gojo convinces Yuta to enroll, but can he learn enough in time to confront the Curse that haunts him?
The new poster visual looks great, and hopefully we get an international release date for the JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 Movie soon so we can see the story of Okkotsu Yuta and Rika!
