The Demon Slayer film ‘Mugan Train’ is breaking records in Japan, but how can you watch animated films in the US and around the world?
Monster Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is arguably one of the best and most popular animated series in the world, so it makes sense that fans are looking for new content.
Soon after the conclusion of season 1 in September 2019, the writers of the series “Euphotable” on Twitter announced that the next project would be a feature film.
The movie will be dubbed the “Mogane Train” following the reported 40 people missing on the locomotive and Tanjiro, Inosuke, Zenitsu and Nejuko boarding the “Infinity Train” will have the season 1 live.
However, fans want to know how they will be able to watch the movie Demon Slayer, including when it will be released outside of Japan and which sites will be showing the movie.
74th greatest film of 2020…
The animated film ‘Demon Slayer: Mugan Train’ was released in cinemas across Japan on Friday 16 October.
Following the record-breaking Opening Weekend, the official Demon Slayer Twitter account revealed that the Mugain train earned over 10 billion yen ($ 95 million) in just 10 days.
The film would then go on to break the record for Best Opening Weekend and Best Second Weekend at the Japanese box office, selling more than 8 million tickets.
As of January 2021, Monster Slayer: Mugen Train grossed $ 390 million and is now considered the 4th highest-grossing film of 2020.
The film’s success is also partly due to its release in IMAX theaters across Japan. According to reports, the IMAX Special Edition “uses enhanced sound to give viewers the feel of being in combat when the Tanjiro uses its water breathing techniques.”
