(Toei) WK2 >Sing holds onto its #1 ranking, dropping under 20% in its second weekend frame, to fend off a wide variety of newcomers. After 10 days in release now, the animated musical competition has sold a nice 1,513,520 admissions. Illumination managed to achieve another home run here, and a total over ¥4 billion (~$35 million+) is looking likely. >Kong: Skull Island enjoys a good second place debut, selling 256,885 admissions across 676 screens over the weekend frame. Its debut is 27% higher than the 2005 King Kong. It remains to be seen if the new Kong will manage the impressive legs of the 2005 film, since New Year is stronger than Spring Break, but a total between ¥2-2.5 billion (~$20-25 million) seems likely. >Moana enjoyed a strong third weekend hold, but despite how good that sub-20% figure looks, it's still not comparable to its studio predecessors, Frozen, Big Hero 6, or Zootopia. After 16 days in release, Disney's latest acclaimed animated hit has sold 2,160,369 admissions. I think it's probably safe to say that it's unlikely to recover enough to match the legs of those films, but it's still aiming for the ¥5 billion (~$45 million) blockbuster milestone, which is certainly nothing to be disappointed about. >Doraemon: Great Adventure in the Antarctic continues to hold very well in the face of numerous new releases, and if it has a strong final week of Spring Break, is still on target for a ¥4 billion (~$35 milllion) total. After 23 days in release, the 37th entry in the long-running franchise has sold 2,288,809 admissions. If it reaches ¥4 billion, it'll become only the second film in the franchise to accomplish the feat (after last year's film). >Daytime Shooting Star managed to make the Top 5 in a very, very close battle with two of the other weekend debuts. Directed by Takehiko Shinjo, and starring Mei Nagano, Shohei Miura, and Aran Shirahama, the live-action adaptation of the shojo manga sold 145,676 admissions across 273 screens over the weekend frame. And since opening on Friday, brings its 3-day admissions to 218,251. Legs are typically solid for shojo films release in the Spring, so I expect a total comfortably above ¥1 billion (~$10 million). >Kamen Rider X Super Sentai: Ultra Superhero War, the 55th theatrical release in the Kamen Rider series, debuts in sixth place and within expectations. The latest film, the first of the tri-annual release strategy, sold 144,347 admissions over the weekend across 309 screens. Its debut is solid, and fairly standard for the cross over series, but the frontloaded nature of the series will prevent it from reaching ¥1 billion (~$10 million), so look for a total around ¥800 million ($7 million+). >Policeman and Me only comes in seventh place over the weekend, but distributor Shochiku is likely satisfied with its decent opening. Also based on a shojo manga, the live-action adaptation sold 141,017 admissions over the weekend on 303 screens. As I mentioned above, legs for shojo films during Spring Break are usually good, so a total of ¥1 billion (~$10 million) is possible. >Passengers rounds out the openers that made the Top 10, having to settle for a disappointing ninth place ranking. Expectations weren't particularly good, but the sizable screen count and release date are indications that Sony was expecting better. The Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence lead film only sold 92,488 admissions over the weekend frame on 499 screens. And since opening on Friday, brings its 3-day admissions up to 124,397. It'll be prone to early screen/showtime cuts given its under-performance, so legs are probably going to be lackluster, so look for a total of ¥500-600 million ($4-5 million) or so. >And finally, well out of the Top 10 now, Your Name. is still hanging on fairly well (around 15/16th place). After 31 weeks in release, Makoto Shinkai's phenomenon uber-blockbuster has now grossed ¥24,786,911,900 ($234.6 million) and has sold 19,093,366 admissions.

(Toei) WK2 >Sing holds onto its #1 ranking, only dropped about 20% (maybe just under) in its second weekend frame, fending off a wide variety of newcomers. Illumination managed to achieve another home run here, and a total over ¥4 billion (~$35 million+) is looking likely. >Kong: Skull Island enjoys a good second place debut, or possibly third place depending on actuals (good nonetheless), that's ~20% higher than the 2005 King Kong. The 2005 film was released before New Year, so it'll probably have better legs than Skull Island, but I expect Warner Bros.'s adaptation to exceed the ¥2 billion (~$20 million) mark. >Moana enjoyed a strong third weekend hold, but despite how good that sub-20% figure looks, it's still not comparable to its studio predecessors, Frozen, Big Hero 6, or Zootopia. I think it's probably safe to say that it's unlikely to recover enough to match the legs of those films, but it's still aiming for the ¥5 billion (~$45 million) blockbuster milestone, which is certainly nothing to be disappointed about. >Doraemon: Great Adventure in the Antarctic is also still holding very well in the face of numerous new releases, and if it has a strong final week of Spring Break, is still on target for a ¥4 billion (~$35 milllion) total. If it reaches ¥4 billion, it'll become only the second film in the 37 entry franchise to accomplish the feat (after last year's film). >Daytime Shooting Star and Policeman and Me both had healthy debuts, though I don't believe either quite managed to reach the ¥200 million mark over the weekend. Still, even if they come in below that mark as I'm estimating, both have a fair chance of reaching the ¥1 billion (~$10 million) milestone, especially the former. >Kamen Rider X Super Sentai: Ultra Superhero War, the 55th theatrical release in the Kamen Rider series, debuts within box office expectations and franchise expectations. And while it's maintaining a consistent opening weekend, and likely total, for the series, it's not enough once again to climb back to the ¥1 billion (~$10 million) milestone. >Passengers was unable to generate much interest in a busy Spring Break season, and was only able to debut in the bottom half of the Top 10. It has enough admissions to have secured an opening weekend above ¥100 million, so it's not a complete failure, but it's definitely a disappointing start. It'll probably finish somewhere around ¥700 million ($6 million) or so, just enough to get it over the $300 million worldwide mark.

(Toho) WK29 >Moana finally reaches the land of the rising sun, and although it came in lower than estimates due to a surprisingly low avg. ticket price, it still posted a strong opening weekend selling 466,480 admissions over the weekend frame on 568 screens. And since opening on Friday, its 3-day total admissions reached an impressive 568,882. Its opening weekend is 42% greater than Zootopia; 2% lesser than Big Hero 6; and 23% lesser than Frozen. There was little doubt that the Polynesian animated adventure was going to be a hit in Japan, and it's likely setting course for a total north of ¥6 billion ($50 million+), with potential for more; perhaps even as much as ¥7 billion+ ($60 million+) if WOM is similar to its studio predecessors. Japan is a lock to become Moana's top international market by a considerable margin, and should propel the film above the $400 million mark at the foreign box office and $650 million at the worldwide box office. >Doraemon, despite facing major competition, secured a strong second weekend hold and claimed the biggest second weekend, and two-week total, ever in the long-running franchise. The 37th entry in the series is well on track for a ¥4 billion ($35 million+) total. >La La Land has begun to slow down a bit following the Oscar buzz it benefited from last week, but it's still showing signs of a long run ahead with a very good third weekend hold. There's still a likely possibility of it reaching as much as ¥3.5 billion ($30 million+) or more, which could make it the third highest-grossing live-action musical in the market (behind only The Phantom of the Opera and Les Miseables). >I mistakenly kept calling Let's Go, Jets! the latest Precure film all weekend, when it's not! The Spring Precure film opens this upcoming weekend - my bad! Anyway, the Cheerdance film came in fourth, selling 159,935 admissions over the weekend across 300 screens. This is a solid debut, and one that should result in a ¥1 billion (~$10 million) total. >Your Name. seemed like it may have been bumped out of the Top 10 this weekend, but another good hold has kept it there for yet another weekend - its 29th-consecutive week in the Top 10. It has now sold 18,988,172 admissions. It broke Spirited Away's 26-consecutive week run in the Top 10 two weeks ago, and with 29-consecutive weeks in the Top 10 now, its record may never be broken. Remaining in the Top 10 is also pretty crucial at this point, too, with Spring Break coming up in two weeks. There's still a lot of notable films to be released to take advantage of the holiday period, and films that have fallen outside of the Top 10 are usually victims of harsh screen/showtimes cuts, so a Top 10 ranking this weekend is very important and should maintain its presence at the box office into April.

(Toho) WK29 >Moana finally reaches the land of the rising sun, saving its most luxurious international territory for last thanks to an impressive opening weekend. Its estimated opening weekend is ~46% ahead of Zootopia; ~8% ahead of Big Hero 6; and ~15% behind Frozen. If you're only trailing Frozen, you're in good company. There was little doubt that the Polynesian animated adventure was going to be a hit in Japan, and it's likely setting course for a total north of ¥6 billion ($50 million+), with potential for much, much more; perhaps even as much as ¥7/8 billion ($60-70 million), and if it's a WOM success like its studio predecessors, who knows how far it'll go. Japan is a lock to become Moana's top international market by a considerable margin, and should propel the film above the $400 million mark at the foreign box office and $650 million at the worldwide box office. >Doraemon, despite facing major competition, secured a strong second weekend hold as its past predecessors have enjoyed, and depending on the actual, its second weekend might come in as the highest gross in the long-running franchise. The 37th entry in the series is on target for a ¥4 billion ($35 million+) total. >La La Land has begun to slow down a bit following the Oscar buzz it benefited from last week, but it's still showing signs of a long run ahead with a very good third weekend hold. There's still a likely possibility of it reaching as much as ¥3.5 billion ($30 million+) or more, which could make it the third highest-grossing live-action musical in the market (behind only The Phantom of the Opera and Les Miseables). >The latest Precure film actually came in higher than the past few films in the franchise if estimates turn out to be accurate. It's still down a good bit compared to some of the earlier this this decade, but an increase is an increase, and the franchise surely needs the positive news. >Your Name. seemed like it may have been bumped out of the Top 10 this weekend, but another good hold has kept it there for yet another weekend - its 29th-consecutive week in the Top 10. It broke Spirited Away's 26-consecutive week run in the Top 10 two weeks ago, and it's simply adding to its incredible record that may never be broken. Remaining in the Top 10 is also pretty crucial at this point, too, with Spring Break coming up in two weeks. There's still a lot of notable films to be released to take advantage of the holiday period, and films that have fallen outside of the Top 10 are usually victims of harsh screen/showtimes cuts, so a Top 10 ranking this weekend is very important and should maintain its presence at the box office into April.

W15 10 (08) ¥35,000,000 ($310,000), -39%, ¥330,000,000 ($2.9 million), The 100th Love With You (Asmik Ace) WK3 >Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale sold through ~27% of its available admissions for Saturday in advance, and will very likely exceed a 50% sell-through rate for the day, maybe even 60%. It'll easily debut at #1 despite the low screen count (151), so how high can it go? The SAO Movie Project, based on the very popular multi-media hit series, is bound to be one of Aniplex's biggest hits ever. >One Week Friends, the live-action adaptation of the manga series, debuts this weekend and is looking in good shape. It'll make the Top 3, but Partners IV will keep it from earning the silver over the weekend. >Doctor Strange and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children are the only imported films in the Top 10, and both will continue their solid performances, respectively. Marvel's latest is climbing closer to that ¥2 billion milestone, a notable mark for any DC/Marvel film to reach. And Tim Burton's latest is going to comfortably exceed the ¥1 billion milestone by the end of the month, giving Burton another successful film in the market. >Your Name. will achieve its 26th-consecutive week in the Top 10, the half-year milestone, tying up the record set by Spirited Away. Next weekend is quite weak, the calm before the Spring Box Office Season begins next month, so a 27th-consecutive week, at the very least, is almost guaranteed as well, thus setting a new record.
  9. Corpse Saturday Update: >Partners: The Movie IV performed very well, and is very likely to achieve the biggest opening of 2017 so far. I predicted an opening around ¥400 million ($3.5 million), but it may come in closer to ¥450/500 million ($4-5 million). >Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children held nicely, down less than 25% compared to last Saturday. It and Doctor Strange will be in a very close battle for second place this weekend. >Survival Family performed as expected and is still aiming for a debut of ¥150 million ($1.3 million), or maybe slightly less. >Your Name. may be back to minuscule drops again after experiencing a couple weeks of large 20/30% declines, being down less than 5% compared to last Saturday in its 25th week of release. >Allied is proving that Brad Pitt still has some drawing power in the market since it'll comfortably make the Top 10 this weekend (7th/8th place). Its low screen count, however, will hinder it a bit. >And finally, if anything surprises and makes the bottom of the Top 10, it's going to be the live-all-night screening of Yuri!!! On Ice with Yuri K., Victor and Yuri P. Roppongi Hills Cinema held an all-night screening of the entire first season for fans with discussion with the anime's voice cast. The all-night screening was relayed live to 47 other theaters in Japan, and its admissions for Saturday were easily enough to make the Top 10, selling through nearly 70% of its available tickets. Whether or not it makes the weekend Top 10, since it was a one-night-only event, remains to be seen, but if its ticket prices were high enough, it may just make it. The incredibly popular sports anime, that has achieved popularity on a worldwide scale, about male figure ice skating is becoming one of the hottest anime properties in recent years with international athletes taking on voice roles, participating in marketing and advertising, and more.

There are a couple films that are benefitting from the holiday, but for the most part, it seems to be a mostly normal day. Secondly: Full Weekend Actuals weren't released, for some reason, this past week, so some of this Weekend's Forecast is based on Weekend Estimates. >Partners: The Movie IV, the fourth main series film, and sixth overall, in the popular Aibou (Partners) franchise will easily debut atop the weekend box office and may achieve the biggest debut of 2017 so far. The fourth film, along with its predecessors, is based on the very popular TV drama series of the same name, which will be entering its 16th season later this year. >Doctor Strange continues to hold on quite well for a DC/Marvel film, and might break the ¥1.5 billion mark over the weekend. Most DC/Marvel films struggle to reach a multiplier of 5, or barely reach it, but the Doctor is going to comfortably exceed that number and might climb closer to 6 (6 is still below average in the market, but impressive for the genre). >Your Name. is entering its 25th weekend of release, and will achieve its 25th-consecutive weekend in the Top 10 as well - and by the looks of things, it might earn a weekend increase, too, thus setting another weekend record (highest 25th weekend). It's now only one more consecutive weekend in the Top 10 away to tie the record set by Spirited Away, and it's very likely to tie it, but can it beat it and earn 27-consecutive weeks in the Top 10, or more? Probably. >In This Corner of the World is still showing no signs of losing anyone's interest yet, and will enjoy its 14th-consecutive weekend in the Top 10 without ever even being in the Top 5, not once! It's going to exceed ¥2 billion this weekend, which is an absolutely remarkable achievement for a smaller-scale animated film released through an independent studio.
  11. Corpse Full Weekend Actuals are taking awhile to come in this week for some reason. I'll wait another day before posting anything, in hopes that they'll be available tomorrow. If they're not, I'll post what's available tomorrow. A few notes ahead of any numbers: >Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children came in second place as estimates suggested, however, it managed to edge out Dr. Strange in weekend admissions (~5,000 difference). Dr. Strange repeats atop the box office in terms of revenue for a second weekend. >In This Corner of the World missed out on the Top 5 (ranking 6th), but regardless of that, it continues an incredible performance in the Top 10 and has seen significant increases over the past several days. As a result, I believe it's siphoning some of Your Name.'s audience. This is going to make it much harder for Your Name. to surpass Frozen and Titanic if it's unable to recover from the -20/30% drops, its largest to date, it's been experiencing the past couple weeks. The 40th Japan Academy Prize Ceremony is on March 3rd, and Your Name. will likely need a sweep (Director, Screenplay, Animation, and Music, the first three at least) to receive another boost at the box office, one it'll probably need to surpass Frozen and Titanic. A director of an animated film has never won Best Director or Screenplay, both of which Shinkai is nominated, so I'm sure it'd be a news-worthy accomplishment if Shinkai/Your Name. wins these; which should give the film a boost that could then push it into the Spring Break box office season in late-March.
  12. Corpse Weekend Estimates (02/04-05) 01 (01) ¥252,000,000 ($2.2 million), -36%, ¥1,100,000,000 ($9.7 million), Doctor Strange (Disney) WK2 02 (---) ¥225,000,000 ($2.0 million), 0, ¥275,000,000 ($2.4 million), Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Fox) NEW 03 (02) ¥170,000,000 ($1.5 million), -27%, ¥575,000,000 ($5.0 million), Kiseki: Sobito of That Day (Toei) WK2 04 (03) ¥101,000,000 ($900,000), -18%, ¥24,025,000,000 ($227.8 million), Your Name.

Strange should be able to reach that new goal, and finish around ¥2.1/2.2 billion ($19/20 million) or so. >Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children finally releases in Japan nearly half-a-year after its initial release worldwide last year, and posted a solid debut even if it missed the #1 spot. Tim Burton has a dedicated fanbase in Japan, and the market is frequently one of the best for his films, so a successful return for Miss Peregrine was expected. The film's earnings from Japan are particularly noteworthy, too, since its debut this weekend pushed it above the $200 million mark at the foreign box office. Also, it's fallen about $14 million shy (now $11/12 million) of reaching the $300 million mark at the worldwide box office, but Japan can probably get it over that milestone (barely), too. >Your Name. enjoyed its 24th weekend of release very much still in the Top 5 as it nears half-a-year in release, and based on estimates, managed to remain above the ¥100 million mark. It easily recorded the biggest 24th weekend of all-time, breaking Spirited Away's record. And after this weekend it'll need 3 more weeks in the Top 5, and 3 more consecutive weeks in the Top 10, to break Spirited Away's records in both categories. >In This Corner of the World...the film that just keeps on ticking. This weekend marks its 13th-consecutive weeks in the Top 10, and while that's an impressive achievement of its own, it's done so without ever having a weekend above, or even near, ¥100 million. Hell, if estimates hold, this will be its first weekend even in the Top 5 since it debuted. The incredible success of this film began on just 46 screens when it debuted, later expanding to almost 200 screens (still just a moderate count) several weeks later. Its now hit a multiplier of 39.9... 39.9; granted, it received a major expansion, but it's absolutely remarkable nonetheless and its performance is easily among the best of the past decade already.

W12 10 (05) ¥63,560,900 ($557,000), 0, ¥314,482,600 ($2.7 million), The Accountant (Warner Bros.) WK2 >Doctor Strange certainly cast a spell over the Japanese audience in its debut weekend, achieving the 10th biggest opening weekend for a DC/Marvel film in the market; and more impressively, it even achieved the 3rd biggest opening weekend for a DC/Marvel film in the market if you exclude the Spider-Man and Avengers films. Very impressive. The latest entry in the MCU sold 237,722 admissions over the weekend frame across 785 screens, and since Friday has sold 313,354 admissions after three days in release. Superhero films carry a certain amount of frontloading with them, but this one's a lock for ¥1 billion (typically a struggle for most superhero films), and should comfortably reach ¥1.5 billion+ (~$15 million). >Your Name. slips to third place after reclaiming the #1 spot in its 22nd weekend last week, and easily claims the biggest 23rd weekend of all-time by besting Spirited Away's previous record by over 46%. Makoto Shinkai's phenomenon has now sold a staggering 18,351,883 admissions after 23 weeks in release. It has, however begun to slow a bit on a week-to-week basis, and with just a couple individual holidays to take advantage of in February, it's probably not going to overtake Spirited Away to become the highest-grossing/most-attended film of all-time. It still has a clear path to eventually surpassing both Frozen and Titanic, though, to reach the #2 spot on the all-time list. Only time will tell where the film ends its run. >Kiseki: Sobito of That Day performed very well, selling 182,044 admissions over the weekend on only 156 screens. The band, GReeeeN, haven't produced as many hits in recent years as they were once known for, but they clearly still have a dedicated fanbase with this impressive start.

The former has the slight edge since it plays better in the unaccounted for rural prefectures, and has a minuscule avg. ticket price advantage (~0.1%). If Your Name. reclaims the top spot, it'll achieve its tenth non-consecutive week atop the box office charts. >The openers were duds, unsurprising for this time of year, though only one (Drowning Love) ended up having potential at a ¥100 million start in the end, and it's a very borderline estimate. >High & Low: The Red Rain appears to have resurface in the Top 10, thanks to an increase on Sunday versus last Sunday. I haven't been tracking it closely, but I'm guessing there were some stage greetings or some other event taking place yesterday. Whatever the case, it was able to boost the film enough to get it to/over the ¥1 billion milestone.
