Pretty good weekend to begin September. No notable opener, but the first weekend of September rarely has a notable debut anyway as it's the first post-Summer/Summer Vacation weekend.

>Stigmatized Properties achieves a second weekend atop the box-office, and delivered the necessary hold that should get it above the ¥2 billion (~$20 million) milestone.

>Tapestry continues to do well for Toho, and has locked up reaching the ¥1.5 billion (~$15 million) mark. It should finish around ¥1.7/1.8 billion ($16/17 million).

>Doraemon: Nobita's New Dinosaur held well in its first full post-Summer weekend, and is still on track to reach the ¥3 billion (~$30 million) milestone. The 40th entry in the franchise will finish 30-40% below the last several films in the series, but it'll also end up above the lower-tier films as well. All in all, I believe it's performed well outside of its traditional March release and having to perform under a 50% capacity limit in urban areas, which is especially difficult for families.

>Onward experiences a rough third weekend decline, and as a result... might not outgross Brave now and end up as Pixar's lowest-grossing film in the market. There is still a small chance it beats Brave to avoid that fate (Silver Week in mid-Sept. will help some), but it's very unlikely.

>Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel III - Spring Song received a 4DX expansion this weekend, so it enjoyed a good hold. It could have even held a little better than I estimated since 4DX tickets are very expensive. Things are still looking good for it to outgross its predecessor and become the highest-grossing film of the trilogy.

>From Today, It's My Turn! is now less than ¥100 million away from reaching the blockbuster milestone of ¥5 billion, and depending on the actual from this weekend, is looking to reach the mark on Thursday or Friday this week. It seemed very doubtful that Summer 2020 would have a blockbuster film, but this film really delivered. Expect it to finish around ¥5.3 billion ($50/51 million) and 4.1/4.2 million admissions.

any guesses about tenet

Nice upticks across the board versus yesterday's estimates. This is a decent start to September, and there are a few notable films to come that should keep the month interesting.

>Stigmatized Properties achieved a second-consecutive weekend atop the box-office, selling an additional 190,207 admissions in its sophomore frame, bringing its 10-day admissions up to 783,000. The second weekend hold, and two-week total, are good enough that a total above ¥2 billion (~$20 million) is very likely.

>Doraemon: Nobita's New Dinosaur managed to edge out Tapestry to climb to second place over its fifth-weekend of release, selling a further 111,000 admissions over the weekend, bringing its 31-day admissions up to an impressive 2.24 million. The 40th entry in the long-running franchise is likely to reach the ¥3 billion (~$30 million) milestone. And while that will be about a third less than the last few films in the film series, it's higher than the lower-tier films and not far off from what used to be the standard gross for a Doraemon film. This is certainly a respectable result given the release date change and capacity limits in place.

>Tapestry slipped to third place, selling an additional 100,000 admissions over its third weekend, bringing its 17-day admissions up to 921,000. The figures for this film are particularly impressive or noteworthy, but they are sort of your normal/expected numbers for a film like this, so I'd consider it a good sign for the box-office moving forward.

>Onward was looking to finish slightly above Brave to avoid becoming Pixar's lowest-grossing film in the market, but after this poor hold, it's probably not going to do any of that after all. And I wouldn't put the blame on the pandemic really, either. Some of it, sure, but just about everything else released in the past 8-weeks has either come close to expectations or have even exceeded them, so I think this film was ultimately destined to fail in the market.

>Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel III - Spring Song received a 4DX expansion this weekend, so as a result, delivered an excellent third-weekend hold. It also continues to outpace its predecessor, and baring a collapse next week, it's going to end up as the highest-grossing film in the trilogy. Very impressive.

>From Today, It's My Turn! is now less than ¥50 million away from reaching the blockbuster milestone of ¥5 billion! This was the first film to open after urban theaters expanded from 25% capacity to 50% capacity (where they have remained), yet it was still capable of achieving blockbuster status. After 52-days in release, its admissions are nearing 4 million, having sold 3.92 million admissions.

Weekend Actuals (09/12-13):
01 (---) ¥262,000,000 ($2.5 million), 0, ¥289,403,500 ($2.7 million), Crayon Shin-chan: Crash! Rakuga Kingdom and Almost Four Heroes (Toho) NEW
02 (01) ¥204,537,360 ($2.0 million), -20%, ¥1,456,180,050 ($13.7 million), Stigmatized Properties (Shochiku) WK3

06 (---) ¥x89,000,000 ($838,000), 0, ¥153,027,300 ($1.4 million), The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese (Phantom Film) NEW
07 (---) ¥x75,000,000 ($705,000), 0, ¥114,280,200 ($1.1 million), Midway (Kino Films) NEW

09 (05) ¥x64,752,850 ($610,000), -23%, ¥5,081,545,200 ($47.8 million), From Today, It's My Turn! (Toho) WK9
10 (06) ¥x51,924,610 ($489,000), -31%, ¥702,738,770 ($6.6 million), Onward (Disney) WK4
11 (07) ¥x47,357,300 ($446,000), -30%, ¥3,479,115,300 ($32.4 million), The Confidence Man JP: Episode of the Princess (Toho) WK8


The Top 10 came in a little below estimates, but they still delivered a good total.

>Crayon Shin-chan: Crash! Rakuga Kingdom and the Almost Four Heroes, the 28th-entry in the long-running animated franchise opened well, selling 212,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 364 screens, and sold 233,592 admissions after its first three-days in release. This debut is about 25% or so below the opening weekends of the last few films in the series, but I'd consider it a win with the capacity restrictions in place and the reschedule release outside of its traditional mid-April slot. Expect a finish between ¥1.5-2.0 billion ($15-20 million).

>Stigmatized Properties delivered another good hold, selling 105,000 admissions in its third-weekend, bringing its 17-day admissions above 1 million with 1,093,799. It's definitely going to reach the ¥2 billion ($20 million) milestone now, and will probably finish near ¥2.5 billion (~$25 million).

>Doraemon: Nobita's New Dinosaur keeps putting up the strong holds and has locked up reaching the ¥3 billion ($30 million) milestone. It has sold 2.36 million admissions after six-weeks in release, and will end up selling over 2.5 million.

>Break the Silence: The Movie (BTS movie) enjoyed a healthy four-day opening, selling 105,492 admissions since opening on Thursday across 265 screens.

>The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese and Midway didn't put up impressive figures on their own, but they are notably strong for being released by independent distributors Phantom Film and Kino Films, respectively, which is another sign of a strong box-office. Their weekend frame admissions haven't been released, but the former sold 106,508 admissions after its first three-days in release, while the latter sold 86,320 admissions after its first three-days.

>From Today, It's My Turn! achieved blockbuster status by exceeding ¥5 billion after its ninth-week of release and also exceeded 4 million admissions with 4,012,663. It became the first film released in 2020 to achieve blockbuster status. This is an incredible accomplishment, and it will probably finish as high as ¥5.5 billion ($51/52 million) on 4.3 million admissions.

>Onward still isn't holding too well, and unless it's really, really able to take advantage of the upcoming four-day holiday weekend (Sept. 19-22), is probably going to finish below Brave and become Pixar's lowest-grossing film in the market. As I've mentioned, there wasn't much going for this one even before the pandemic delayed it, but almost every other film released since July has been meeting/exceeding expectations, so I don't really know why this one is under-performing so much.

No, not really. A bit below Corpse expectations from presales.   
 

Nolan movies usually don’t have spectacular legs in the market, would head for $20M or so from there. That’s not bad, 3rd highest Nolan, pretty much what people were expecting.   
 

But considering there’s essentially no covid effect here, not “very good” either.

Seems like there was some issue in Mimorin tracking yesterday. The sales for yesterday are around 100k, which will give a huge $1.8mn OD but that doesn't make sense with today's numbers which are $1.45mn Approx Saturday.

 

So for now its

 

Friday: $1mn

Saturday: $1.45mn

 

Sunday perhaps $1.5-1.75mn, that will give a weekend of $3.95-4.2mn

13 (10) ¥x33,000,000 ($315,000), -35%, ¥760,000,000 ($7.1 million), Onward (Disney) WK5


Good weekend. I'm not really going to provide any analysis until Weekend Actuals are available this week. Consider the Weekend Estimates above to be rough, since the normal method of calculating them was thrown off going into the weekend after several chains moved from 50% capacity back to 100% capacity.

>Tenet, according to Warner Bros. out-opened both Interstellar (no surprise) and Dunkirk, which appears accurate based on my estimates as well, although it's very close to Dunkirk and I expect their admissions were very similar, but Tenet probably has the edge in revenue due to more IMAX showings.

Nolan's films are usually frontloaded due to the dedicated fanbase he has in the market, but this estimated start should get it above ¥2 billion (~$20 million) since legs should be a bit stronger this time. As long as it beats The Dark Knight Rises's ¥1.97 billion total, it'll become Nolan's second biggest film in the market, only behind Inception.

>Violet Evergarden: The Movie settled for second place, but it delivered a strong second place debut (I even think it was #1 on Friday, at least in admissions). Its estimated opening is even more rough, however, since these types of animated films have varying average ticket prices. Whatever the number ends up being, it's a big success and should clear ¥1.5 billion (~$15 million).

I also expanded the Top 10 a bit this weekend to keep better track of The Confidence Man JP: Episode of the Princess (since it's performed so well) and Onward (which hasn't performed well, but still has a slim shot of beating Brave at least).


Monday and Tuesday were national holidays,

NOTE: Cumulative Totals are as of Tuesday, Sept. 22nd, due to the back-to-back national holidays on Monday and Tuesday.

>Tenet debuted atop the long Silver Week holiday period, selling 199,559 admissions over the weekend frame itself across 488 screens. And over the long 5-day holiday period, Nolan's latest sold 468,229 admissions. For just the weekend frame itself, Tenet debuts higher than both Dunkirk (though a little lower in admissions) and Interstellar, and only trailed The Dark Knight Rises by 13%.

This is also the biggest opening weekend for a Hollywood film of 2020, granted, Hollywood keeps delaying their films, so not much competition on that front. But more important than the good weekend numbers is the impressive five-day total. Nolan's films are fairly frontloaded from appealing heavily toward his dedicated fanbase in the market, but even with mediocre legs, it's likely going to reach ¥2 billion (~$20 million) to become his second highest grossing film in the market, behind just Inception.

>Violet Evergarden: The Movie enjoyed a healthy second place debut, selling 174,636 admissions over the weekend frame itself on just 153 screens. And over the long 5-day holiday period, it sold 392,072 admissions. Very good opening and five-day total here, and we can expect a total between ¥1.5-2.0 billion ($15-20 million).

>Stigmatized Properties and Tapestry continue to have good performances, and thanks to the healthy holiday boost, both films are going to exceed the ¥2 billion ($20 million) milestone quite comfortably. The former in particular might be able to approach ¥2.5 billion (~$25 million).

>Doraemon: Nobita's New Dinosaur exceeded the ¥3 billion milestone after its seventh week in release (plus the two holidays). This was the desired goal to reach, as it's the standard for the franchise until the series saw an uptick over the past few years. So while it's going to finish 30/35% below its most recent predecessors, it was still able to reach a satisfactory total despite capacity restrictions during the majority of its run and a big release date change from its tradtional March release.

>Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel III - Spring Song surpassed its predecessor after its fifth weekend in release, and became the highest grossing film in the Fate/stay night trilogy of films. Big success.

>From Today, It's My Turn! holds onto a spot in the Top 10, achieving its tenth-weekend there. The surprise blockbuster continues to hold quite well, too, against a lot more competition in its first few weeks in release, and will finish close to the ¥5.5 billion ($52/53 million) mark.

>Tenet remains the #1 film at the box-office, and delivered a very good second weekend hold by selling 144,707 admissions in its sophomore frame, bringing its cumulative admissions up to 742,190 admissions. After two-weeks, Tenet has already nearly outgrossed Interstellar (will have as of Monday or Tuesday) and is running ahead of every other Nolan film aside from Inception. Look for Nolan's latest to become his second highest-grossing film in the market, again behind Inception, as it's targeting a total between ¥2-2.5 billion ($20-25 million).

>Crayon Shin-chan: Crash! Rakuga Kingdom and the Almost Four Heroes hasn't been able to adjust to its rescheduled release after being delayed from its traditional mid-April slot, and experiences a pretty poor hold in its third weekend. September is a very poor month to release a younger-skewing film. The 27th entry in the long-running film franchise will still earn a profitable gross, but it will finish noticeably below many of its predecessors. But Toho had little to lose here, unlike their other annual franchises, and didn't really have much choice but to release it here since they rescheduled the latest Pokemon film in December.

>Stigmatized Properties exceeded the ¥2 billion milestone after its fifth-week in release, exceeding expectations and giving Shochiku a welcomed success. It won't reach the ¥2.5 billion ($25 million) mark, but it will get fairly close to that mark as well.

>Tapestry is right on the cusp of exceeding the ¥2 billion milestone, and did so on Monday. Like Stigmatized Properties, this is another film that has exceeded expectations and while Toho has been doing very well during these times, it's still a nice success for them.

>Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel III - Spring Song became the highest-grossing film in the trilogy last week, but isn't slowing down quite yet, with a very good hold in its sixth-weekend of release. It's not exactly necessary for Aniplex to give it a push (or just let it play longer) to reach the ¥2 billion milestone, as it may fall just short, but they'll probably do so.

>And finally, except for the cumulative total for Midnight Swan, it, Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! and The Addams Family are estimated based on their weekend admissions ranking. All three were released by independent distributors, and they're often a day or so late in having their figures released. I'll update them later.

And taking the estimated numbers for the independent films, the Top 10 this weekend is only down 3.2% versus the same weekend last year.
