  1. I like your spirit, but that is far too high a milestone for me. Frozen still holds the animation record at $1.28 billion, and no other animated film besides Incredibles 2 has ever gotten close to it. Considering the phenomenon nature of the first film, I don't think it's possible to see that kind of growth. It would have to meet most of the following conditions to succeed: -Break the November OW record domestically and have great holiday legs (4+ multiplier) -Be as big as Toy Story 4 in Latin America -Break Zootopia's record for animated films in China -Stay flat in Japan. Very tall order considering Japan grossed an insane $250 million for the first film -Modest increase in South Korea, another overperforming market for Frozen -Big increase across the board in Europe and Australia, where Frozen wasn't comparatively big
  2. Yes, that would be a very reasonable prediction at this point.
  3. I meant Toy Story 4 is losing 30% of its seats this upcoming weekend because Weathering with You is taking a lot of the screens.
  4. I'm guessing around a similar drop too with Toy Story 4 losing about 30% of its seats this weekend (including the biggest screens at every theater).

WOW. The fourth entry in the Pixar franchise sold a remarkable 1,031,000 admissions (first imported animated film to do this) over the weekend frame across 556 screens. Further, it sold an astounding 1,850,000 admissions over its long 4-day Marine Day Holiday Weekend (Fri.-Mon.). The film is going to exceed the ¥10 billion ($90 million+) uber-blockbuster milestone without much effort, and should be on track for a ¥12/13 billion ($110-120 million) total. If you're reading this, you've probably been keeping track in this thread of how monstrous its opening weekend (and first four days in release) really was. It went into the weekend expected to either fall just shy or just barely break some records, but it shattered the records in question and achieved some truly incredible accomplishments. One ridiculous accomplishment that it achieved was the biggest imported opening weekend, animated or live-action, since 2007's Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End. >Pokemon: Mewtwo Strikes Back - Evolution, while it had to play a very distant second place and be totally overshadowed, actually performed very, very well. The twenty-second film in the long-running Pokemon film franchise sold 454,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 408 screens. It then went on to sell a very nice 752,531 admissions over its long 4-Day Marine Day Holiday Weekend (Fri.-Mon.). The first CGI film in the series, a remake of the original 1998 film, achieved the biggest opening in the franchise since 2010! That's a very impressive result given the series was at franchise lows a three-five years ago. Expect a finish around ¥3.5 billion ($30-35 million). >Aladdin fell to third place, and while it experienced its "worst" hold to date, it still held very well despite some harsh screen/showtime cuts. It also became the highest grossing film of 2019 over the weekend, and has sold over 6.9 million admissions after six weeks in release (plus Monday). There are a lot of big films still to come, so the screen/showtime cuts will continue but I don't believe it'll see a noticeable hit (say, 40-50%) until maybe August 9th, so it's going to continue to bring in some impressive numbers. It's still on track for a ¥12/13 billion ($110-120 million) total. >Spider-Man: Far From Home continues to follow a fairly frontloaded trajectory as its predecessor. Thankfully, it had a much higher opening to make up for the mediocre holds and will outgross Homecoming's ¥2.8 billion total in a couple weeks. Depending on if it can maintain a sufficient enough screen/showtimes going into August, it could reach around ¥3.5 billion, but it'll probably settle closer to ¥3.2 billion ($30 million) or so.
  6. That math was so bad I have to wonder if it was intentional spin. The timing is really weird too. Did some person just decide, completely unprompted, to check on Detective Pikachu OS numbers in hopes of finding some miracle numbers after it's been in a stall for weeks? Thanks for posting that PSA by the way. Often times with fake news, getting the actual truth out can be difficult after the masses have already seen and accepted the headlines.
  7. The number on Box Office Mojo is the accurate one. If you look at The Numbers, they've mistakenly given Russia a gross of $207 million!
  8. This is beyond embarrassing. Whoever published that needs to redact the article immediately.
  9. Very excited to see what kind of records Weathering with You can achieve with such a wide opening, but it's unfortunate for TS4 losing premium screens after just one week.
