Demon Slayer ”6th week number" 

 

11/21: Mobilization 314,726 people & box office 439,606,550 yen

11/22: Mobilization 433,315 people & box office 592,378,550 yen

11/23: Mobilization 357,741 people & box office 460,110,250 yen

Actual numbers a little less loud than expected, but still huge numbers

 

DS could overtake Tokyo Olympiade today or tomorrow In admissions and will overtake Titanic (without 3D re-release) on Wednesday

 

This weekend thanks to the second giveaway weekend will be very similar to last weekend (maybe even we could see an increase)

>Demon Slayer: Mugen Train repeats atop the box-office for a sixth consecutive weekend, and claimed the Biggest Sixth-Weekend Record. As with each week, check the past several pages for further analysis and discussion regarding the film.

>Stand By Me, Doraemon 2... disappointed. It beat this past August's release at the usual locations, but ultimately failed to match its opening weekend from poor rural business, and low IMAX attendance that kept its average ticket price lower than expected. It sold 305,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 416 screens, and 542,037 admissions over its first four-days in release. Its four day total ultimately fell below the original film's 2-day opening weekend.

There's a lot that went wrong here, so I'll keep it short and just list the reasons: 1. Takashi Yamazki's bad reputation in recent years; 2. COVID has mostly only negatively impacted family films, and this is a family film, so...; 3. Wedding Plot was unappealing for children, its primary audience; 4. Demon Slayer's monopoly on the box office was too large to attract any casual moviegoers.

A total projection is tricky to figure out, but for the time being, it'll be hoping to reach the ¥3 billion (~$30 million) milestone.

>The Legend of Hei is doing amazing. I don't know what the highest grossing Chinese animated film is in the market, but I would bet this one is on track to taking that title since I can't even think of any others.

>Violet Evergarden: The Movie continues to hang in there, and Shochiku will keep it playing long enough now to reach the ¥2 billion (~$20 million) milestone. Very impressive result.

And unfortunately, with Doraemon's under-performance and the lack of any Hollywood films (they should be releasing in the market), this weekend is the first in six weeks to be down versus last year by 32%. Still good, but Doraemon should have provided bigger support to Demon Slayer.

From Corpse:

I don't think there's a singular answer. I know that's the cheap way out from giving an answer, but there are several contenders.

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial has the admissions to suggest it had a crazy run. Spielberg was already a known name, so it's probably safe to assume it had a pretty good opening. It was the #1 film until Princess Mononoke in 1997. And since Princess Mononoke also broke the opening weekend record (540,000 admissions), we can presume that E.T. had a huge multiplier by simply going below that figure, so that's a 20 minimum but honestly it was probably much, much higher (probably like a 30/40). It was probably an earlier "mini" Titanic.

Titanic is obviously a contender as well. Ultra-leggy performance, perhaps the leggiest ever (or at least known). The only thing that's sort of against it is its admissions. It didn't claim the admissions record (falling several million short), and three films have since sold more tickets than it, too.

Your Name. is a contender from coming out of nowhere. Its director had been around for awhile, but he never had a box office success (not even close) until Your Name.. It also opened at the end of Summer and on less than 300 screens, clearly indicating it wasn't meant to be huge success, much less go on to becoming the fourth biggest film ever (at the time) and get near 20 million admissions. It recorded more consecutive weeks in the top 10 than Spirited Away, as well.

Bohemian Rhapsody is an unusual one to consider, but it is definitely apart of this discussion. It was even leggier than Frozen, Spirited Away, Your Name., etc. What sets its apart from other leggy musicals, such as The Greatest Showman or Les Miserables, is that it took their leggy precedence and ran away with it, setting a new high, and almost sold 10 million admissions. Later on you'll see how crazy its later weekends were as I post the Biggest Weekend Charts with Demon Slayer on them.

Frozen, easy addition to this list. Walt Disney Animation had NEVER had a blockbuster film (all failing to reach just ¥5 billion) in the market and then Frozen happened. And it became just the second film to ever reach 20 million admissions. If Disney hadn't gotten extra-greedy to rush the home video release, it would have out-grossed Titanic to become the #2 all-time film (at the time) and probably gotten within a couple billion of Spirited Away.

Demon Slayer, from its opening weekend alone, deserves a spot here. It didn't just break the opening weekend record, in addition to every single day record, and every sort of record (no exaggeration) possible during its first three/four weeks. It completely obliterated them (its third week was big enough to claim all the records). It has broken so many records and in such a ridiculously short amount of time, they'll almost certainly never be broken, certainly not in our lifetimes. And...it's going to beat Spirited Away and become the #1 all-time film in revenue AND admissions. Easily. It's just a different type of contender, as Japan is all about legs and all its biggest films were ultra-leggy films, and has set a precedent all its own in the market. However, we don't know where it's headed either. It opened on a ridiculous scale, but it's barely slowed down. Its seventh weekend is going to be on par with the opening weekends of most uber-blockbusters. For all we know, it could keep going and gross over ¥40 billion ($400 million). It wouldn't be exactly difficult since it's still posting such massive numbers in its seventh week.

The only film that I wouldn't included, shockingly enough, is Spirited Away. I only say this because, while it had a hugely impressive run, clearly one of the best ever, it was 100% expected to be huge and be a contender for the #1 all-time spot, which it would claim. Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli had long since established themselves atop the box office world, and this was his follow-up (another "retirement" film) to Princess Mononoke that had claimed the #1 all-time spot for a short time.

This weekend the DS distributor has planned 1 million copies of gifts for the first to see Demon Slayer, the gifts have therefore attracted more people this Saturday than last Saturday, and this weekend will be very slightly lower compared to the last week thanks to gifts
