  1. It's not a mistake. It's outpacing TASM in yen. Just not in dollars.

High & Low 2: End of Sky came in a little lower than its predecessor by around 15%, but that'll be enough to take the #1 spot in the post-Obon Festival weekend. The first film was very frontloaded, so I'm sure this one will be, too, especially since it opened at the end of Summer. I wouldn't expect more than ¥1.5 billion (~$15 million). Fireworks, Should We See It from the Side or the Bottom? delivered a solid start, but its legs will be the focal point of its performance. It's the type of animated film that can develop incredible legs, over a 10 multiplier, but audience scores I've seen are very mixed... For now, I'd say a ¥2 billion (~$20 million) total is likely, but we'll have to wait and see where this goes. Despicable Me 3 becomes the highest-grossing non-Disney/Pixar imported animated film of all-time, and will become the first to ever reach ¥6 billion (~$55 million) or maybe even ¥7 billion (~$65 million). Illumination couldn't have hoped for more, and this result that's comfortably above the blockbuster milestone puts them on the same level as, if not above, Disney Animation/Pixar now in the market. Spider-Man: Homecoming debuted slightly higher than The Amazing Spider-Man 2 last week, and due to the holidays, should remain ahead of it and eventually outgross it, along with The Amazing Spider-Man. Aside from the two Avengers films, the only Marvel/DC films to gross over ¥3 billion (~$30 million) have been Spider-Man films (all of them), and Homecoming will likely continue the streak. I Want To Eat Your Pancreas delivered an excellent post-Obon Festival weekend drop, and will effortlessly achieve the most-impressive run this Summer in terms of legs (already near a 9 multiplier after just 4 weeks). It's likely headed for a total above ¥3 billion (~$30 million), which would give it a multiplier of almost 12. Transformers: The Last Knight still can't stabilize and will end up as the lowest-grossing film in the franchise with around ¥2 billion (~$20 million). Pokemon: I Choose You! is on the cusp of ¥3 billion and whether it hit the mark over the weekend or in the next couple days, it'll become the first film in the franchise since 2013 to reach the milestone. I don't think it'll quite make it to ¥3.5 billion (~$32/33 million), but the Pokemon Company and Toho has to be pleased with how well it recovered versus the last three/four films in the series. Gintama continues to perform very well, and will settle for about ¥4 billion (~$36/37 million); exceeding the milestone will depend on the final week of summer weekdays. It's the highest-grossing domestic live-action film this year, and it'll be tough to top. Mary and the Witch's Flower held steady in its seventh weekend, and post-Obon Festival weekend, and will soon exceed the ¥3 billion milestone. Overall, its performance has been a bit underwhelming all around, and certainly isn't the result that Studio Ponoc (comprised of former Studio Ghibli staff) was wanting. It's aiming for about ¥3.5 billion ($32/33 million), which is "good", but barely to qualify as a mild success. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales remains in the Top 10 in its eighth weekend of release, which will probably be its last there. The fifth film in the Pirates franchise is still currently the lowest-grossing in the series, but I think it has just enough left in the sails to exceed the first film's ¥6.8 billion total. So, a total near ¥7 billion ($62/63 million) appears to be the landing spot and that should be enough to make it the #1 film of Summer 2017... unless Gru and his minions survive the post-Summer and manage to sink the ship.
  3. SMH mignt not even debut at #1 in admissions. On the tracked movie theaters it's currently at 205,584 admissions for saturday+sunday against 209,121 for DM3.
  4. When an embargo is lifted too early, provided that the reviews are good, it gives time for the "hype" to peak and then decline. Having it about 4 to 5 days before release seems like a good strategy.
  5. No. If he was only "displaying passion", I wouldn't care as much. But the man has been suspected of abusing state funds for his own interest. And he goes and pays his taxes in the US after using french public money to produce his crap.
  6. Because I'm French so I've known how obnoxious and full of himself the man is long before this article. He's a Michaell Bay, if even, who believes he's an Orson Welles.
  7. I hate Besson. If this movie can end his career, it will have done some good, regardless of reviews.

If actuals remain above ¥1 billion, it'll become the 37th film to debut above the milestone. The fifth Pirates film, based on estimates, matched the debut of its predecessor On Stranger Tides in terms of admissions (maybe slightly more), though with it opening on the 1st (a discount day) it probably will come in a bit lower in revenue. This will celebrate the fourth-consecutive film in the franchise to debut above the ¥1 billion mark if it stays above the mark, which is only beaten by the Harry Potter franchise (six films). Disney is surely happy with the films' success so far, as the opening should be good for a total around ¥7.5/8.0 billion (~$70 million), which could be enough to propel the film above the $800 million mark at the worldwide box office. >Shinobi's Country comes in second place, but it had an impressive opening of its own - one that could have exceeded ¥500 million ($4.5 million) depending on its unique situation. Since the 1st of the month (discount day) fell over a weekend, the avg. ticket prices will be lower than normal (while admissions are higher than normal), which complicates things enough; however, the film also received stage greetings on Saturday which messes with ticket prices even further... Either way, the film - directed by Yoshihiro Nakamura and based on the novel of the same name - performed very well and should have a nice run this summer. >Beauty and the Beast experienced its expected harsh drop this weekend, although the drop could have been worse. This won't be the end of its steep declines, unfortunately, since a number of theaters are dropping it next week, and the July 15-16 weekend is extremely crowded so it'll likely be cut almost entirely then. I'm expecting it'll eventually end its run with ~¥12.5 billion ($110 million) on ~8.8 million admissions. Incredibly impressive on multiple accounts.
