Dragon Ball Z: Revival of “F” Goal is to Gross More Than Battle of Gods

The goal for the 2015 movie, Dragon Ball Z: Revival of “F” (Dragon Ball Z: Fukkatsu no “F” in Japanese) are big and after that exciting trailer we saw the other day, rightfully so! Kanzenshuu reports in an interview with Cultural News Journal (a Japanese print publication), Hidenobu Muramatsu (sales/box office manager) and Yasushi Suto (planning/production manager) from Toei Animation, recently revealed the aim for gross sales of the movie – 4 billion yen! That’s 1 billion yen more than the 3 billion yen goal for the previous Dragon Ball Z movie, Battle of Gods, which was met and exceeded, especially when taking into account global sales.

Part of the reason for that goal is pre-release ticket sales are trending towards a 30% increase compared to the same point for the previous film. Additionally, there will be a larger showing for the movie! Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods opened across 312 theaters in Japan, while Dragon Ball Z: Revival of “F” will see showings at 640-650 screens, including 2D and IMAX 3D.

In case you may be interested – 4 billion Japanese yen currently equals to 33.1 million US dollars, while 3 billion yen equates to 24.8 million dollars. Due to fluctuating exchange rates, in 2013, 3 billion yen was equal to around 30 million dollars.
