After ten days in release, the sixth-entry in the Terminator franchise has sold 956,091 admissions. It remains on track for a total between ¥2.5-3.0 billion ($25-30 million), likely finishing on the low-end of that range. >It: Chapter Two continues to have excellent holds, and like its predecessor, may end up legging its way across the ¥2 billion ($20 million) milestone once again. >Sumikko Gurashi: The Pop-Up Book and the Mystery Child enjoyed a marvelous second weekend increase to rise into the Top 3. There are limited special fan screenings going on in Tokyo, which reportedly sold out after just 5 minutes of going on sale prior to the weekend. These screenings likely won't last long (may already be over), but they were certainly a huge success. >Joker comes in fourth place in its seventh weekend of release. It has slowed slightly, and reaching the blockbuster milestone of ¥5 billion will probably come down to how long Warner Bros. keeps it playing. That said, even if it does barely miss the mark, it wasn't expected to come anywhere near this level of success (half as much would have been considered great), so win-win all around. This upcoming weekend sees the release of Frozen 2. What to expect from the sequel to the third-highest grossing of all-time in Japan? I'll be providing in-depth tracking (hourly updates) over the weekend.

The sixth film in the long-running franchise sold 328,321 admissions over the weekend frame across 810 screens; it sold 449,565 admissions since opening on Friday. So... while this is 9% below the debut of Terminator: Genisys and 21% below Terminator: Salvation, the opening weekend really isn't that bad. It's not particularly good, but it's reasonable given the decline of the franchise. The early numbers and better reception (albeit barely so) just really misled projections. Look for a finish between ¥2.5-3.0 billion ($25-30 million). >It: Chapter Two opened 47% higher than its predecessor last weekend, and while that percentage is impressive, it was expected to do a bit more given the breakout success (and strong reception) of its predecessor. I then said that it was unlikely to match the legs of the original, and would probably gross less. Well, I may have called this wrong because Chapter Two just delivered a great second weekend. It's still not likely to have the longevity of the original, but this hold will go a long way it getting it above the original's total. We'll see. >Sumikko Gurashi: The Pop-Up Book and The Mystery Child really surprised over the weekend, and earned itself a solid fourth place debut (third in admissions), selling 104,000 admissions over the weekend on 114 screens; it sold 114,280 admissions since opening on Friday. As you can see, given the incredibly low Friday admissions, the weekend numbers themselves came in significantly higher than expected. >The numbers for Re: Life in a Different World from Zero and One Night are estimates. I'll update them when/if their respective figures are released.
  4. WW was massively helped by having Gal Gadot be the first Israeli headlining a Hollywood blockbuster which created a lot of buzz that drew in people that normally wouldn't see a film like this. WW84 isn't going to have that kind of novelty. It will still do very well, but I don't expect it to match the first.

  8. I know you are a troll, but in case other people are fooled, this is a 32.8% drop from last week, which is better than last week when nothing of importance opened (and it's still on its way to a billion).
  9. From Corpse: Apologies for not getting to the Weekend Forecast today.It: Chapter Two will likely debut at #1, but its opening doesn't look to be particularly impressive, especially given the good reception of the first film (and how leggy it was). It's aiming for ¥200-250 million ($2-2.5 million) over the weekend, which isn't much higher than its predecessor's ¥184.5 million opening. And matching the legs of the original is very unlikely, so it's probably safe to call a lower total for Chapter Two.Joker, in its fifth weekend, and the debut of After the Matinee will be in a close race for second place. I'm expecting a split here, with Joker coming in second in revenue, while After the Matinee edges out a second place opening in admissions. Both are likely headed for ¥175 million ($1.6 million) or so.

Selling an additional 180,000 admissions over the weekend, the film has reached a cumulative total of 2,403,682 admissions after four weeks. Joker's solo outing has obliterating the DC record books, and has surpassed Batman (1989) to become the highest-grossing film based on a DC property. Expect a total north of ¥4.5 billion ($40 million+), but the chances of it reaching the blockbuster milestone of ¥5 billion ($45 million+) have increased substantially enough that I'd bet on it happening. >Maleficent: Mistress of Evil held steady enough to hold off the new openers to remain in second place, selling an additional 105,000 admissions. The second weekend hold is okay, but any unlikely attempt of recouping from its awful opening are gone now. A total of ¥1.5 billion ($15 million) is its ceiling, which would result in a mammoth decline of 77% compared to its predecessor. >Gemini Man settled for a disappointing third place debut, selling 100,000 admissions over the weekend frame across -- an unnecessary -- 682 screens; it sold 133,621 admissions since opening on Friday. I wouldn't label this opening as a bomb, but it's certainly disappointing, especially given the usual draw ability Will Smith has, or had, in the market. >Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend debuts in fourth place, but its opening is quite successful given its screen count of just 121. The latest release from Aniplex sold 89,758 admissions over the weekend, giving it a noticeably high average ticket price of ¥1,519 ($13.97). >Immortal Heroes is worth noting this weekend due to its exceptional second weekend hold, dropping a mere 3%. The film (an inspirational, true story) has excellent reviews and audience scores (averaging 4.5/5 on most sites), and has received notable nominations (and a few wins) at international film festivals, though no one involved with the film has had notable success in the past, be it critical or financial. I think we can expect a very leggy performance, and a total above the ¥1 billion ($10 million) milestone is certainly achievable.
  11. Makes sense, but I don't know more than you (unfortunately, box office reporting for Israel is terrible).
  12. The article only mentions that it projects Joker to make 700K by the end of its run, and that Wonder Woman is the current number one in admissions amongst comic book movies with 850K.
  13. Thanks, that number is of course huge, and it will pass Infinity War soon. Israel doesn't use the American rating system, it limits films to above certain ages (12,14,16,18), Joker broke the record for a film limited to age 16+.

Its weekdays have proven to be very, very strong, indicating a significant adult-audience, a group that tends to drive films for quite some time at the box-office. I said last week that a total of ¥4 billion ($35-40 million) was looking good, and that's become locked up, and I wouldn't be surprised if it finishes closer to ¥4.5 billion ($40-45 million). And to put such a figure into perspective compared to other DC films; it'd be over 90% of the combined totals of Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, and over 4x higher than the total for Justice League. The film has obliterated the DC filmography at the box-office in the market. >The second to fourth place positions are contested this weekend, and could probably be arranged in every manner possible: Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend has the edge in terms of pre-sales, but the barely wide theater count is certainly a disadvantage. However, I'm still predicting it debuts in second place due to likelihood of a very high average ticket price that most Aniplex releases share. Gemini Man isn't looking to impress despite starring the typically reliable Will Smith.
