JAPAN BOX OFFICE | Demon Slayer breaks all time record for OW

Thanks for your interest. I am fine :) I hope all of you are fine too.

 

I have read a couple of threads, and I did a couple of posts, but I had not realized of this Japanese surprise. To see that its 3 first weekends are the best ever is absurd. Is there any similar case around the world? If it exists, it must be a local film in a not very well known market. I can not remember something close to this. Even more in a so developed market like this one. One could think that this would be easier to achieve in a developing market, where records are set continously. But here? It is shocking. More than Endgame, IMO.

Yeah, happily me and my family are ok, thanks.

 

About DS, yeah, it´s kind a great and nice surprise in these times that BO is almost dead averywhere.

It´s really shocking 3 weekends over the past record, but for me is more amazing if it gets the all time admissions record in this moment, really astonishing.

Many people here say it´s locked, i still have some doubts about it.

It´s very funny that i almost never eas in the Japanese thread and now is my only one thanks to DS!!!

 

Hope to see you here around and your good posts!

I mean, nothing is ever a lock. COVID-19 numbers are on the rise in Japan as well. I'm not saying they're gonna do it, but closing the cinemas again or asking people to avoid them again is certainly something that can happen.

Sorry, LPLC asked if it was 100% locked that DS will surpass SA. Can you honestly agree that it is a 100% lock? I would personally put it at 99%. There is always that 1% chance that it might not happen. Sorry if you consider this 'another dose of doubt'.

Locked is a stupid term to begin with. It’s not even *100%* locked to pass Frozen — what if Japan sinks into the seas tomorrow?    
 

But barring some really crazy act of god, yes, it’s going to pass Spirited Away.

Demon Slayer should normally if all goes well as planned exceed 21 millions admissions just before December (or so during the first days of December), after there are 18 days of vacation, weekends with gifts and the release of the last one. volume of the manga which could boost its box office so that it makes the 3.3 millions admissions that separates it from Spirited Away, it's true that it's almost impossible to miss that, it can even go for the 25 or 26 million admissions, see more ....

Japan will most likely go around ¥36Bn i.e. $343mn Approx.

Taiwan is looking at $20mn range.
Hong Kong perhaps $7mn.

These 3 will give it $370mn / ¥38.6Bn.

That leaves about $83mn for taking the top spot of 2020 and about ¥9Bn for beating Spirited Away for Biggest Japanese film worldwide, roughly same amount for both benchmark.

Your Name did around $130mn, outside these three but that had a very big Korea and China ($109mn to be precise).

Taiwan numbers suggest a big China for Demon Slayer, but @Gavin Feng told us to expect $30-40mn, so I will hold my horse. Will depend a lot on Korea

>Demon Slayer: Mugen Train - See Last Many Pages. The film continues its overwhelming performance, earning the Biggest Fifth Weekend ever by a wide margin, has sold 17.505 million admissions as of Sunday, and is far, far from being finished.

>The Legacy of Dr. Death: The Black File opened fairly well in second place, selling 102,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 347 screens, and 143,901 admissions over its first three-days in release. Its on that cusp of an opening being high enough to reach the ¥1 billion (~$10 million) milestone, so it's a bit 50/50, but I think it'll managed to get there.

>The Voice of Sin, similar to The Legacy of Dr. Death, also had a debut right around that mark that makes reaching ¥1 billion (~$10 million) 50/50, but it's been holding well enough to get there as well.

>Violet Evergarden: The Movie received a Dolby expansion this weekend, and it proved very successful from its large weekend increase. It's within range of the ¥2 billion (~$20 million) milestone now, and Shochiku is likely to keep it around long enough to reach the mark. So far, this film has earned 130% more than last year's Violet Evergarden release.

The Weekend Top 10 is up 98% versus the same weekend last year.
