I actually don't consider CBO for the possibility. I'm not sure how much a movie of pop animation series can do here. Detective Conan, Dragon Ball, One Piece are hits, but the movies just didn't do huge like Your Name or Hayao Miyazaki.

Couldn't even top the next 2 in combined yen. Weak.

Second Weekend: ¥3,041,448,750 ($29.1 million) [-9%] / 2,272,836 admissions
10-Day Total: ¥10,754,232,550 ($102.4 million) / 7,983,442 admissions

This makes 150M 17 day a lot easier. And 20B 25 days as well 👀

I don't rule out that possibility since there is very little foreign product showing in China.

 

If this can replicate Your Name buzz back in China, this can be big

How on earth is BO so strong in Japan when it has cratered almost everywhere. The way this movie has obiliterated records is ridiculous. Spirited Away is still not that easy but how is it doing when you compare on admissions?

 

The funny thing is since in Japan there is next to no inflation since 2001 (when SA came out), this is actually a fair fight even when comparing it in Yen. Using that, DS stands at 10B Yen, SA has a lifetime cume of 30B. So its 1/3 of the way there both in revenue and in admissions.

I think Japan isn't impacted by piracy and screen count has remained around same level so there isn't much frontloaded ness.

 

However I still feel, a film had better theatrical prospects 20 years ago than today in developed markets.

 

So matching SA will be bigger feat than what SA did.

 

Also today we have these Premium formats which cost more, and yet ATP is similar, so I wonder if ATP of normal tickets is lower or something.

Good points. However, i feel like the circumstances in where Demon Slayer came out (Literally no competition and an essentially free market for itself) should also be considered.

 

Still though, that we even talk about the possibility that Spirited Away could be matched is an achievement in itself.

Currency exchange is crazy sometimes. If Spirited Away had Avatar's XR, it would be a nearly $400m USD film. 
 

 


Back to Demon Slayer, it's run for the ages is truly epic. I'm curious if this insane run is going to collapse a bit due to so much demand being met, or if this is going to keep rolling into a ¥40 billion film. 

For what it's worth, I'm still on the bandwagon that this will fall off before getting to SA.

If it roughly matches Corpse’s forecast there through day 19, it would need just 25% weekly avg drops for SA. I think given the lack of competition and level of cultural phenomenon it’s achieving it has a pretty good chance.

More great news for Demon Slayer, and LiSA:

LiSA's single, "Homura" (Flame), the theme song for the movie, was #1 for a second consecutive week. This is the first time in 9 years and 10 months since a solo female artist has had a single top the charts for two consecutive weeks on Oricon's sales charts.

Also, the song was #2 this week on Billboard's Top 200 (excluding the U.S.):

No wonder DS is a mega-hit, there is a song attached to it. Japanese can't live without song right
