Funimation’s Wednesday opening of Kenji Nagasaki’s anime My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising led yesterday’s box office with $1.7M at 1,275 theaters according to early morning estimates. Though much smaller than the $7M first day Wednesday opening of Funimation’s Dragon Ball Super: Broly prior to MLK weekend last year,  My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising had enough bucks to beat the first Wednesday of Disney/20th Century Studios’ Call of the Wild which made $1.5M in second place (cume at $31.2M) and Paramount’s second Wednesday of Sonic the Hedgehog which grossed $1.1M in third place (running cume at $111M).
