  1. It also unseated Love Live!The School Idol Movie as #2 top gross/attendence "late-night animation"(sort of, ufotable did make "Unlimited Blade Works" Chapter as late-night anime, but fate was originally a game aeries) in process. The gift factor again played very well this time(see back my post in 2015 for what that mean, although item code more in this case like Monster Strike did) Note: Ch.2 lost butterfly will be in 2018.
  2. Great indeed. Beating both Madoka's WE1 attendance and Love Live's WE1 gross by a considerably large margin. (30000 attn / 23m JPY respectably)
  3. this is enough to make a questionmark, even I believe the odds of Zootopia crossing the mark is still high, for now.
  4. I think Zootopia can keep the pace until July. in normal cases. June is not really a strong month for films. last year didn't however, mid-June was dominated by two films that did far beyond their expectations, plus their fan base and chain did not overlap overlap each other much. So you should hope there is nothing like that happen this year.
  5. Yes. There is still 1 theater showing so still counts as consecutive record. Speaking of that issue mentioned above, probably due to 153 theaters (this is 38 more than their original screen count in Nov 21, 2015) will be (re-)showing it starting from 21st May till 31st May to conclude their long release, as a celebration of Blu-ray release. So even it don't matter in this week's weekdays, but certainly mattered a lot in result in this weekend since unknown number of 4DX joined in it. Should this ended at 31st May the consecutive records it would be 193 days. However, for longest showing in 2015 releases, still 9 days short to Love Live! The School Idol Movie (13th June till 31st December, 202 days) So consider margin of this and Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: Rebellion (2013) is less than 0.1BJPY. They are determined to overtake the latter to be second-highest gross film based on a late-night animation in their final 10 days sprint. === Edited 10th June: It has officially passed Love Live! The School Idol Movie's 202 day record as longest run in 2015 releases. Particularly, Cinema City (the only theater showing them before expansion) has no plan to end the showing too soon, they even added another format starting from 18th June. I would not be surprised if Cinema City are going to show this for a whole year, as their tickets are still popular among the fans. (The are not 4DX but tailored audio-adjusted version) As expected, it has already become the second-highest gross film based on a late-night animation (currently 2.2B), it is very difficult to climb at top place even they got a 0.1B/wk pace on last two weeks, however, as some of them chosen continue to show them for a forseeable time, the final of this is yet to be determined.
  6. Hong Kong Box Office

    The main point is that is unusual move for utilizing 4DX for a film having low screen count AND non-3D.
  7. Frozen hit is special case in Japan particularly on its dubbed songs rather than princess fanbase. But I did agree Zootopia is original animation sleeper hit.
  8. Hong Kong Box Office

    Just a reminder (did mentioned a few pages ago): Girls and Panzer der Film has a 4DX screen along with two normal screen (a very rare case as a non-3D film and having very low screen count), so don't be surprised if this produced a non usual total Today. (The evening showing of 4DX has been full few weeks ago, the earlier one almost too as of this writing)
  9. Hong Kong Box Office

    Seeing today's performance, unless a bigger earthquake happened I don't think it will affect too much. However, as released too near with Detective Conan: The Darkest Nightmare (1 week after), and has no special guest dubbing like Frozen did, I think it would called success if they can pass 4B JPY (Inside Out did despite facing heavy competition, particularly The Boy And The Beast)
  10. Hong Kong Box Office

    A bit early to mention, but quite interesting stuff happened in Girls and Panzer der Film 4DX presale today. (This has only 1 4DX screen plus 1 standard screen only) Although the 4DX version has only one showtime and one screen per day, all 4DX showtime (5/12-5/18) has been sold out within 30 minutes once they are available.
  11. Hong Kong Box Office

    Since I had not watched the film itself, I have no right to judge whether Ten Years should be awarded or not. But I believe if only political reason affect this result, that looked more like controversy between Zero Dark Thirty and Argo in Academy Awards. Or better saying, rigging controversy or are not limited to Hong Kong (or certain extent, China) but all over the World. I did agree the nomination should be revised, but not necessary to alter the result unless there are more politically controversal film flooding the scene.
  12. Two corrections: 1. The concert name is μ's Final Love Live! ~μ'sic Forever♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪♪~ 2. The event itself was held on 3/31 and 4/1. The 4/2 broadcast is indeed rebroadcast of 4/1's performance. Although both 3/31 and 4/1 has live viewings and both gets into top 5 in projected bo on that day. Additional update: From the data known, the 4/2's attendance from 95 screens is 21736. (each ticket costs 3800, gross 82596800JPY), if that was a film it would have ranked 8th in gross of 4/2 to 4/3 weekend. P.S. I was at the Dome in 4/1 performance.
  13. Spiderman and Iron Man are OK, but not the rest. It would be interesting for next week as quite some of the cinema will be occupied for about 6 hours in 4/2, for a recorded show.
  14. And speaking one interesting thing: Girls und Panzer: The Movie As a very rare case of non-3D movie and a movie already running for 3 months, 4DX was recently added as lineup (The week returning to top 10, in Week 15). It is announced they will continue to run at least before entering Golden Week. It is still unknown will they overtake K-On! Movie and Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: Rebellion, or even dethroning Love Live! The School Idol Movie as the highest gross movie base on late night TV-series, but from the cumulative chart, it is quite possible. Edited: Seemed more cinemas then I expected used the G&P as a benchmark to show off technology they got. Following 4DX, ULTIRA and imm sound joined the lineup recently as limited lineup..
  15. (Right, the result has been released, but need to point out the Prize politics) You forgot a important fact: Movies with direct relation of Nippon TV (the broadcaster) has advantage. Sea Town Diary and The Boy and the Beast are directly produced by Nippon TV. (So you will understand why Konan series has nomination in almost every year) American Sniper has feature show on Nippon TV but Mad Max didn't. Edited 21, March: Speaking of Prize politics, seemed today's TAAF produced a big result upset: The Boy and the Beast was NOT crowned in the TAAF2016 Anime of Year (Movie division) despite a Academy Prize win. And even more unexpected one, the same prize go to Love Live! The School Idol Movie instead. If you look at TAAF/TAA previous record, The Academy Prize's AoY winner is almost sure to take the crown in TAAF/TAA AoY in same year, or vice versa (excluding special cases like Frozen), It is particularly a big shocker as Mamoru Hosoda's previous three films have all won both AoY in same year too but not this.
