"Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'" Earns $8 Million in Limited U.S. Release

"Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'" earned $8 million during its nine-day North American theatrical run, vaulting past "The Wind Rises" to become the ninth-highest grossing anime release in the United States.

Although the scheduled limited engagement ended Tuesday, distributor Funimation Entertainment has announced the film will receive an "encore release" through Monday at select theaters.

"It's truly gratifying to see how this movie resonated with fans," Gen Fukunaga, founder and CEO of Funimation, said in a statement. "I'm so thankful to the loyal fans who embraced this movie and who have been with us on this journey since we first introduced 'Dragon Ball Z' to American audiences 20 years ago."

The 19th animated feature in the "Dragon Ball" franchise, the film marks the return of iconic villain Frieza. Series Akira Toriyama was directly involved in the production, and is credited with the original concept, screenplay and character designs.
