Despite its limited release in North America, My Hero Academia: Two Heroes, the first film set in the My Hero Academia universe, had an extremely successful opening in North American box offices. According to Funimation, Two Heroes pulled in over $2 million in the first two days of its initial five-day run.
Beginning earlier this week, the limited release of the My Hero Academia film is being shown in over 500 theatres. Originally, the English-dubbed version of the film had showings on September 27 and 29. While the subbed version is still set to show on October 2, many theatres are offering additional showings on September 28 and September 30 due to the wild success of Two Heroes.
Funimation describes the film:
The climactic finals are over, and U.A. is getting ready for the summer training camp. Deku and All Might receive an invitation from a certain person to go overseas to a giant artificial moving city called I-Island. This island, a kind of “science Hollywood” that gathers the knowledge of scientists from around the world, is holding an exhibition called I-Expo showcasing the results of Quirk and hero item research. In the midst of all this, Deku meets a Quirkless girl named Melissa and remembers his own Quirkless past. Out of the blue, the impregnable security system the island boasts is hacked by villains, and all the people on the island are taken as hostages! Now, a plan that could shake hero society has been put into motion! The man who holds the key to it all is the number one hero and Symbol of Peace, All Might.
