Demon Slayer just doesn't know how to quit succeeding, it seems. The franchise is breaking records with its manga and TV show, but nothing compares to its insane box office totals. Demon Slayer's first movie has already become the highest-grossing movie in Japan to date, and it recently took the global spot for the highest-grossing anime film ever. Now, the blockbuster has debuted in a new international market, and Demon Slayer took the top spot in the land down under!

Demon Slayer's big movie has finally released in Australia and New Zealand, and distributor for those territories Madman Entertainment has revealed that Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Movie: Mugen Train has opened in Australia and New Zealand at the number one spot in both regions. While an official box office total has yet to be revealed, this is a good sign for its performance in these territories so far.

As for fans in other territories, Demon Slayer's big movie has yet to get an official release date for fans in North America. There has been a reportedly super limited theatrical release in the United States in order to qualify for the awards season, but a full and official release has yet to be announced as of this writing. Aniplex of America's last official update on its release confirmed they were still planning a full theatrical release in North America some time this year.

A full international release in as many markets as possible is completely necessary this year as well because the second season of the anime is already on the way. Confirmed for a release this year, this new season will be picking up right after the events of the Mugen Train arc adapted for the feature film. So as many fans as possible need to check it out to be ready for the new episodes!
