A new video offers a brief look at the action of Jujutsu Kaisen 0 as the film continues to crush competition at the Japanese box office.
A new Jujutsu Kaisen 0 promotional video has been released.
The latest preview of the previous film is short, but shows some brief shots not seen in previous trailers, including a new shot of the film’s villain, Suguru Geto, using a familiar weapon against the main hero of the movie, Yuta Okkotsu, and its curse, Rika. The trailer is set to the song “Ichizu” by Japanese rock band King Gnu.
The first movie of Jujutsu Kaisen The series premiered on December 24. The previous film had the second-best opening weekend in Japanese history and managed to rake in more than 9.3 billion yen (about $81 million) in its first month of release. For comparison, last year’s highest-grossing film in Japan, Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0: Once Upon a Time, grossed 10 billion yen (about US$89.5 million) during its entire multi-month theatrical run.

Jujutsu Kaisen 0 takes place a year before the events of the anime series, which premiered in early 2021.

Instead, the prequel tells the story of Yuta Okkotsu, a young man haunted by the spirit of his childhood sweetheart, Rika Orimoto. Rika’s soul has been transformed into Curse, a violent monster that feeds on the negative emotions of humanity. In order to control Rika’s curse, Yuji is brought to the mysterious Jujutsu High, a school for wizards, but his new education is cut short when he is drawn into the conflict between his new teacher, Satoru Gojo, and the vengeful wizard Suguru Geto. .
Jujutsu Kaisen was originally created by manga artist and writer Gege Akutami in 2018.

The TV series and the previous movie were directed by Sunghoo Park, who previously worked on high school god. The manga is available in English in both print and digital formats from VIZ Media, while the anime series is available to stream on Crunchyroll and Funimation.
