    For anyone curious about who played who, I took notes during the credits and added the full English cast and crew list up top.

    I actually saw it in Las Vegas where I'm currently living, and the film's setting was pretty much the city dialed up to 11. The visuals were very impressive to watch on the big screen, and I was surprised how much I got drawn into the plot, especially as things seemed to get worse and worse for the Straw Hats.

    Cast-wise, all the main VAs were at the top of their game, no question. Maybe Brook got too shrill at spots, such as the whole scene with the owls, but everything else was marvelous. Of the guest stars, Keith Silverstein was impeccable as Tesoro: not just his acting, the singing was fun to listen as well. I was also very surprised by how much I enjoyed Daman Mills as Mr. Tanaka; his character was beyond snivelly, but he made it sound perfectly natural (aside from the creepiest One Piece laugh I've ever heard). Sadly, in comparison Michele Knotz wasn't as enjoyable as Carina. I've known her since her first role as Hajime Yagi from World of Narue, and I've had a soft spot for her work, but I'll admit she's never been the epitome of fine acting. Plus, her singing leaves a lot to be desired. Everyone else sounded good to great, and the returning characters (and those 0set to appear) were all a joy to listen to.

    That's a shame that Carina's voice actress couldn't sing all that well. I really wanted the English version of Gold and Jive to be good, but I'm guessing with her lack-luster singing it's not all that great.

    Gonna chime in on some of these that either havenít been answered yet or are kinda opinion-based:

    This is interesting because from what others have said, this was different for everyone. My theater showed two trailers, one for Beauty and the Beast, and one for Pirates of the Caribbean 5.

    Very Vic Mignognaish lol. It was good, it isnít him just straight up doing his Ed voice or anything, itís more low pitched with just a hint of gravel coming out every so often. Sounded good.

    Quote Originally Posted by RomeIsHome25 View Post

    She had one line, so yeah, not sure on this one.

    Quote Originally Posted by RomeIsHome25 View Post

    It sounded deeper to me, but marginally so. Like, I was expecting him to deepen his voice and was actively looking out for it, so I caught it. Iím not sure someone watching it casually would pick up on it.

    I freaking LOVED this movie BTW, Iíll type up full thoughts later when Iíve got time (Iím at work)

    It's not terrible or anything, it's on key at least. It's just not a performance I'd expect tens of thousands of people in the stands to be cheering for like they expect us to believe. It struck me as more like a decent karaoke booth performance, whereas Silverstein actually sounded like he was putting himself out there. Then their duet results in some weird disconnect. I'm not even sure it was Knotz singing or someone else, but they could have picked someone better for the opening number. Nothing horrible, just not spectacular, which considering the visuals during the song, I was sort of hoping for.

    Thanks, I'll add that in. Cool to see Clyde Mandelin also back on translation duties! The sub should be fun to read once it hits Blu-Ray.

    I know the movie was just released yesterday but from what I've seen with past FUNimation Films, we will probably see Film Gold released on home video in March or April

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    One Piece: Film Gold made $164,409 yesterday which is much more than the Alabasta movie made in its limited release: http://www.boxofficemojo.com/daily/chart/



    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    It's ranked higher than any of the limited release Naruto movies did in their opening weekends, it's done better than Rurouni Kenshin: Origins' entire run, earned more in it's first day than The Boy and The Beast did on it's first day and has performed MUCH better than Movie 8 did in it's entire run as well as grossing more and ranking higher than Attack on Titan Part 2 did on it's first day and performing much better than FUNi's more niche titles did in their entire runs and first day. So yeah, it's a success and stands as FUNi's 6th highest grossing release

    that is pretty good, and hopefully it can make a good amount as well during it's whole run. I know that I am going to try and see it again with a friend on the 16th.

    I feel like it may be able to finish just behind or above Attack on Titan Part 1 which is currently their 4th highest grossing release

    How'd you get the info that it's their 6th biggest open? I can't get the other anime films American opening numbers on the list, I only get their totals.

    Just saw the opening here in Canaderp. Theatre was pretty packed, fell down the steps as I was looking for a seat, so that was fun.

    Anyhoo, loved the casting and translation. Did not expect them to dub the songs, so that was a treat to hear.

    As for the movie itself, it felt like a rushed arc of its own. It had a lot of highlights, but it felt like a lot of time could be spent between those moments just to allow for some room to breathe. Nitpick aside however, as far as One Piece movies go, I say ace high!

    Film Gold made an additional 25,000 in its second day of release, for a total gross so far of 190,000. It, however, only had showings in 110 theaters last night, opposed to 372 on Tuesday. I know it will be in more theatres tonight. That still roughs out to $229 per theater, which is still not terribly shabby for a movie like this.

    Tonight, the movie should be playing in additional theaters.

    Also note that Tuesdays are by far the busiest weeknight for theaters, so don't let the 440 vs. 229 comparison frighten you too badly.

    And right on time, we have the Day 2 Box Office results for One Piece: Film Gold
    24th place with $25,161 which is expected because a lot of theaters aren't playing it again until certain days but it's still a pretty good gross because it still managed to chart

    Gross To Date:
    $190,859


    It seems to be performing similarly to and actually better than Attack on Titan Part 2. That movie grossed $132,640 on it's first day with $12,483 the next day but bounced back on it's third day with $98,233 so it's final gross will likely be higher than AoT Part 2's final gross of $305,934

    OK, so I saw Film Gold opening day. The movie was a lot of fun. I liked the casino setting, the heist element was a lot of fun, and I think I got into the comedy here more than I have most of the previous movies. It seemed like a movie that felt most like a condensed arc of the series, so in that sense it was relatively predictable, but I felt like it made good use out of a predictable setup. And of course it had great animation and a really cool soundtrack. Though I do feel like the Tesoro flashbacks could have been handled better (they should have had most references to his past made throughout the film to give it more impact). Also , while background cameos weren’t a big deal, characters like Sabo, Koala, and Lucci felt really forced (strangely enough I thought Spandam had the best handled of these type of cameos). As a whole, like the other “Film” movies I would rank it higher than most of the other movies. I don’t think it had quite enough going for it to it to consider it better than Baron Omatsuri or Film Z for me, but I think it didn’t have the notable problems I felt Strong World had, so I guess I would call it my #3 One Piece movie.

    The dub was great, but at this point that’s no surprise. The Tesoro gang and Carina were all great, especially Keith Silverstein as Tesoro was the best, which makes me appreciate Funimation bringing in actors outside of the usual talent pool for these movies. As for Sabo and Koala, I honestly don’t have particularly strong opinions because of how small their roles were. Vic sounded good as Sabo, and he’ll probably be great when we get to Dressrosa, but there’s not much to latch onto here. I did find it interesting that Koala was quite a bit deeper than I was expecting; whether or not it works for her character I’ll have to wait and see. All the side characters were serviceable too.

    As far as the audience goes, I just recently moved a couple months ago, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect in terms of attendance for a release like this, so I was pleasantly surprised the theater was about 80% full.

    Just got back. The movie was awesome but AMC ruined my experience by completely screwing up the colors, seemingly turning the tint all the way down to the point where it might as well have been called Film PINK & GREEN. Seriously, all of the gold was legitimately pink instead. I'll just wait for the Blu-Ray for a proper English viewing experience.

    I just got back from seeing it as well. I was very impressed with the movie and the dub. Funimation went all out with the dub. The sound track was also phenomenal. I had some friends who went with me that aren't too familiar with One Piece besides Strong World and Film Z and they really enjoyed it. It was great to experience One Piece on the big screen and with other people. The comedic bits went over really well with the audience. It was a really good time and I hope this film does good enough to bring future One Piece films to US theaters.

    Box Office results for yesterday came in and One Piece Film: Gold isn't listed so it probably made less than $1,867

    Default Re: Funimation Film Gold Discussion

    Box Office Mojo updated it's Thursday reports and One Piece Film: Gold came in at #41 just below Bad Santa 2 which grossed $1,867 but the movie's Thursday earnings weren't reported which I think means that FUNi didn't report them but seeing as how the movie was likely playing in a few less theaters than Bad Santa 2, we can gauge that it probably grossed under $1,867 and FUNi didn't feel like reporting it but considering how the movie has grossed $190,859 so far, the movie has done way better than FUNi and others have likely expected it to do and it's next biggest group of showings is today so we'll see how yesterday's box office and this weekend's box office go before heading into it's final two days on Monday and Tuesday which should likely have the film's final gross be a little over $200,000 at the lowest and anywhere from $250,000 to $300,000 at the highest

    Don't panic though, the movie is still doing very well and will likely do better than it's Thursday showings this weekend and next week. So far, it's performed better in it's first two days than Attack on Titan Part 2 did in it's first two days but it didn't do as well on it's third day as AoT Part 2 did on it's third day and that's the FUNi film that it's peforming the most similar to. The movie is still FUNi's #6 highest grossing release and I will update it's full achievements after Tuesday

    Gross To Date:
    $190,859






    The movie will release on Blu-ray in April in Germany so the US release shouldn't be too far off, likely in either March or April
