  1. whatever length this ends up being, I plan on submitting at least 25. FYC:
  2. Everything has been closed since March... Still no date for opening them.
  3. Israel currently has great relations with the UAE, much better than when the original was released.

It's now only the second film to ever gross over ¥30 billion, behind Spirited Away, and will surpass Spirited Away to become the new #1 film of all-time around Christmas, maybe a day or two earlier. >New Interpretation Records of the Three Kingdoms scores the third biggest debut of the 2020 calendar year, and the second highest for a live-action film (behind the same director's From Today, It's My Turn! back in July). It sold a very impressive 423,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 348 screens, and sold 555,640 admissions over its first 3-days in release. Look for a total around ¥4-5 billion ($40-50 million). >Stand By Me, Doraemon 2 is still holding well, and is doing what it needs to do in order to benefit enough from the upcoming holiday season to get above the ¥3 billion ($30 million) milestone I believe. After four weeks, it has sold 1.43 million admissions. >Tengaramon's weekend box office is still an estimate (revised upward), but its cumulative total was released. Since it's from an independent distributor, it'll be another day or two before its weekend box office is released, but I'll update it when it is. >Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance sold 34,956 admissions in its 4DX re-release over its first 3-days in release.Another great weekend. The Top 10 is up 25% versus the same weekend last year.
  5. 1941 Always and Hook were my bottom 3, so glad to see them in their rightful spots. Sugarland Express on the other hand is heavily underrated, I saw it for the first for this list and was a lot of fun and better than half the films that have yet to show up.

It's almost ¥10 billion ahead of Spirited Away after 8 weeks with almost no holiday support, and will surpass the long-thought unbeatable Hayao Miyazaki film to become the #1 film of all-time (revenue AND admissions) in a a couple weeks or so. Still seems on track for ~¥35 billion ($330 million+) or so, but we'll need to see what it's capable of doing when it reaches the holiday period in a few weeks. >Stand By Me, Doraemon 2 continues to hold well, and with the eventual holiday boost in a few weeks, it'll likely get over the ¥3 billion (~$30 million) milestone. This is much lower than the original film, of course, but a lot of factors have contributed to it under-performing, so getting a gross around the standard of the annual films in the franchise is good enough. >Takizawa Kabuki Zero 2020 debuts in what I'd consider a surprisingly strong third place, which was clearly helped by stage greetings or fan events on Sunday. It's difficult to estimate what it earned this weekend as I suspect its average ticket price is probably quite high, so it could come in higher than I've estimated. >Fate/Grand Order, at least the first film in a two-part series (a second film was announced for Spring), wasn't able to match the success of the recent Fate/stay night films in the overall Fate series, but this is still a decent opening. It'll be very frontloaded of course, so I don't believe it'll reach ¥1 billion (~$10 million), but the holidays and a likely 4DX expansion later in its run could eventually get it there. >The Witches had a disappointing start, especially since Anne Hathaway is a draw in the market, but I question how much it was actually advertised. It was likely just released with little marketing since Warner Bros. didn't give it a particularly impressive release (267 locations). I believe this one could have done better if Warner Bros. had given it proper marketing and locations. >Evangelion 1.0: You Are (Not) Alone also disappointed, I think. It's hard to really gauge if this is a bad result though since re-releases in generally don't perform well in the market. The series does have a large and loyal fanbase, but perhaps even they didn't want to dish out the high ticket prices to see it in 4DX since they likely own every possible home video release. This is a one-week engagement. The next two films in the Rebuild series open over the next week weeks, also as one-week engagements to help promote the release of the very long-awaited (8-years) final film on January 23rd.

Before this, the record was "just" three-consecutive weekends above ¥1 billion and four overall weekends above ¥1 billion. And, it's now the second biggest film in the market, surpassing Titanic before the weekend even began. Also, just more absurdity, its seven week total is over ¥10 billion ($100 million+) higher than any other seven week total ever. See the last...many pages for more discussion on this film. >Stand By Me, Doraemon 2 held pretty well in its sophomore frame. Its weekdays are going to be very poor due to its non-traditional release date (due to a COVID delay), but if it can have weekends holds on this level, or better, it could still reach Christmas/New Year with decent enough numbers to really boost its cumulative total when the time comes. I think it'll get over ¥3 billion (~$30 million) still. >One in a Hundred Thousand is an estimate. Being an independent distributor, sometimes it take another day or two for the actual to be released. I'll update it when it's available. >The Legend of Hei is doing amazing. I don't know what the highest grossing Chinese animated film is in the market, but I would bet this one is on track to taking that title since I can't even think of any others. >Violet Evergarden: The Movie earns a tenth weekend in the top 10 now (it fell out a couple weeks back for one week), and is going to exceed the ¥2 billion (~$20 million) milestone next week. Nice success for Shochiku, and even bigger achievement for Kyoto Animation. You guys correct me if I'm wrong, but I do believe this has become their highest grossing film ever. Go KyoAni! The Top 10 Films this weekend are down a respectable 27% versus last year. With no Hollywood films, maintaining about three/fourths of last year's box office is pretty impressive. The last weekend of November/first weekend of December is usually bare of notable releases, but there are several bigger local films coming up in mid/late-December that will give the box office a boost.

WK3>Demon Slayer: Mugen Train repeats atop the box-office for a sixth consecutive weekend, and claimed the Biggest Sixth-Weekend Record. As with each week, check the past several pages for further analysis and discussion regarding the film. >Stand By Me, Doraemon 2... disappointed. It beat this past August's release at the usual locations, but ultimately failed to match its opening weekend from poor rural business, and low IMAX attendance that kept its average ticket price lower than expected. It sold 305,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 416 screens, and 542,037 admissions over its first four-days in release. Its four day total ultimately fell below the original film's 2-day opening weekend. There's a lot that went wrong here, so I'll keep it short and just list the reasons: 1. Takashi Yamazki's bad reputation in recent years; 2. COVID has mostly only negatively impacted family films, and this is a family film, so...; 3. Wedding Plot was unappealing for children, its primary audience; 4. Demon Slayer's monopoly on the box office was too large to attract any casual moviegoers. A total projection is tricky to figure out, but for the time being, it'll be hoping to reach the ¥3 billion (~$30 million) milestone. >The Legend of Hei is doing amazing. I don't know what the highest grossing Chinese animated film is in the market, but I would bet this one is on track to taking that title since I can't even think of any others. >Violet Evergarden: The Movie continues to hang in there, and Shochiku will keep it playing long enough now to reach the ¥2 billion (~$20 million) milestone. Very impressive result. And unfortunately, with Doraemon's under-performance and the lack of any Hollywood films (they should be releasing in the market), this weekend is the first in six weeks to be down versus last year by 32%. Still good, but Doraemon should have provided bigger support to Demon Slayer.

Its on that cusp of an opening being high enough to reach the ¥1 billion (~$10 million) milestone, so it's a bit 50/50, but I think it'll managed to get there. >The Voice of Sin, similar to The Legacy of Dr. Death, also had a debut right around that mark that makes reaching ¥1 billion (~$10 million) 50/50, but it's been holding well enough to get there as well. >Violet Evergarden: The Movie received a Dolby expansion this weekend, and it proved very successful from its large weekend increase. It's within range of the ¥2 billion (~$20 million) milestone now, and Shochiku is likely to keep it around long enough to reach the mark. So far, this film has earned 130% more than last year's Violet Evergarden release.The Weekend Top 10 is up 98% versus the same weekend last year.

I doubt this is the best debut for a Chinese imported animated feature, but it's certainly pretty high because I can't recall ever seeing one debut in the Top 10 (thanks to the lack of Hollywood films, it made it!).The Weekend Top 10 is up 71% (based on the few estimates above) versus the same weekend last year.

And like the past two weeks, we've been discussing the film enough to where there's nothing else to really say in this post. If you have any questions, check the past several pages regarding its third weekend (or just ask me or the forum again). >The Voice of Sin opened in second place, selling 145,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 344 screens, and sold 201,214 admissions over its first three-days in release. A very distant second obviously, but this is a pretty solid debut this time of year and should give Toho another ¥1 billion (~$10 million) earner for the year. >Pretty Cure Miracle Leap! A Mysterious Day With Everyone debuted in third place, selling 97,372 admissions over the weekend on 239 screens. This film was originally scheduled back in the Spring, but got delayed and rescheduled here due to COVID. Not a very good opening here, certainly below the average the franchise posts each year, but in its defense, it was very limited in its seating/showtimes due to Demon Slayer and The Voice of Sin getting most of the leftover medium-sized screens. Let's wait and see how legs are before writing this one off. >Tenet exceeded the ¥2.5 billion mark after its seventh weekend in release. As I've mentioned, this is Nolan's second biggest film in the market, very impressive, and it's even grossed 71% of Inception's total now. It's slowing down, but should still add a fair amount more to reach about ¥2.7 billion ($25.5 million+) to get above 3/4ths of Inception's total. >The Asadas! exceed the ¥1 billion (~$10 million) milestone before heading into the weekend, making it a success. It's been well-received by audiences and critics (picking up some notable awards already), but it hasn't really been able to expand its reach very well. A success, but it is coming in a bit below expectations.The Weekend Top 10 is up a whopping 176% versus the same weekend last year.

Surprise! Like last weekend, we've been discussing this film in depth and analyzing it enough that there's not much else to say in this post. >Your Eyes Tell, although a galaxy-sized distance away in second place, had a solid debut for Gaga. It sold 98,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 346 screens; and sold 132,311 admissions in its first three-days in release. It's a stretch to be sure, but it has a slim shot at reaching the ¥1 billion (~$10 million) milestone. >Tenet continues to hold well, and is going to reach the ¥2.5 billion mark next week. Just in case no one has read this, Tenet is the second highest grossing Nolan film in Japan, only behind Inception. Great performance. >The Asadas! will exceed the ¥1 billion (~$10 million) milestone before next weekend. This one didn't quite live up to expectations I feel, but it'll still become a fair success. >Violet Evergarden: The Movie also continues to hold very well, and has doubled the gross of last year's Violet Evergarden film. Quite a tremendous accomplishment there alone, and I wouldn't rule out a final number reaching the ¥2 billion (~$20 million) mark given the late-legs it's having.The Weekend Top 10 is up what must be a record 226% versus the same weekend last year.
