Good start for The Fable II, which suffered from at least two delays over the last year. Based on my estimates, its opening weekend is only about 15-20% below its predecessor.

A Quiet Place 2 experienced around a 30% decline from its predecessor's opening weekend, but considering the first one was actually a bit of a breakout in the market, this isn't too bad. And I'm being a little conservative here, too, so it may end up coming in a little higher.

Mortal Kombat bombed, but not because of HBO Max (which doesn't exit in Japan). Without looking it up, I don't believe the franchise is particularly well-known or popular in the market if I base this on the video game sales. Definitely more of a western-style appeal here that wouldn't translate well in the market.

Good holds for the holdovers, overall. Of note: Evangelion 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon a Time exceeded ¥9 billion. If the distributors really want it to reach ¥10 billion, they could let it play long enough to get there. It is a major milestone to achieve, so it's definitely worth it in this case, so we'll see what happens. Part one of the Rurouni Kenshin finale is closing in on ¥4 billion, and Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet exceeded ¥7 billion.

The Fable II finally releases after two delays, debuting atop the box office selling 168,000 admissions over the weekend frame on 349 screens, and sold 215,923 admissions since Friday. This is a 24% decline from its predecessor, but still a respectable hold considering some capacity restrictions that were still in place over the weekend in various prefectures. Expect a finish around ¥1.5 billion (~$15 million).

Mobile Suit Gundam: Hathaway becomes the first Gundam film in 33-years(!) to exceed the ¥1 billion milestone. I made a mistake last week in saying that the new film was going to become the highest grossing film in the long-running series, and as a poster pointed out, that isn't true as 1982's Mobile Suit Gundam III: Encounters in Space grossed ¥2.3 billion. Hathaway is unlikely to reach that milestone, but being the second biggest film after 40+ years is clearly nothing to be ashamed of.

Rurouni Kenshin: The Final Chapter two-part finale films continue to do very well. The Beginning is beginning (heh) to display stronger holds as fans who are still going out to see The Final are gradually making their way to see it. And The Final continues to have strong holds as well, and will exceed the ¥4 billion milestone soon. Despite the delays (they were suppose to released last July and August), and opening during a SOE in Tokyo/Osaka (among others), the films are doing very, very well. Depending on where The Beginning ends up, as projecting it right now is difficult as fans continue to make their way over after seeing The Final, the two-part finale is looking at a gross of ¥7/8 billion.

A Quiet Place 2 misses the Top 5, and comes in 28% below its predecessor, but again, given some capacity restrictions, this is satisfactory enough. Its 2-day is estimated, but its 3-day total above is accurate, and it sold 72,657 admissions over its first three-days in release on 444 screens. The first film was a mini-breakout of sorts when it opened, so a sequel doing almost 3/4ths of that business is pretty good when they're usually expected to be worse and can often lose some of the original's audience. Expect a finish around ¥500 million ($4/5 million).

Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet held noticeably better than estimated, and cleared the ¥7 billion milestone right before going into its tenth weekend. And after ten weeks, it has now exceeded 5 million admissions with 5,044,958. I don't think Toho is planning any sort of special events for it, judging by its gradual seating/screening cuts, so it'll probably play its way out normally over the next several weeks. Depending on how deep into Summer it gets while still on enough screens/seats, it might be able to reach ¥7.5 billion.

Hinomaru Soul and Mortal Kombat are estimated currently for their opening weekends, but over their first three-days in release, they sold 52,741 admissions and 32,737 admissions, respectively, on 334 and 429 screens.

And lastly, Demon Slayer: Mugen Train is no longer being tracked, having entered limited release now on just 36 screens as it's on home video. It'll add a tiny, tiny bit from them until they stop showing it, but its total won't go up much beyond its last reported total of ¥40,127,186,250 ($383.5 million) and 29,040,541 admission. So its run is practically over! It'll probably finish at ¥40.15 billion and 29.05/29.06 million admissions when Toho/Aniplex release its final total.

Will be interesting to see what Godzilla vs Kong will do considering it’s been out for months in the states and the blu ray is already available.

Japan doesn't care about that, piracy isn't really a thing there.

New teaser for the Jujutsu Kaisen movie.

 

Any early predictions for this one?

 

 

 

Hard to say but JJK's manga sales exploded this year after the anime aired, meaning theres defintely room for a potential breakout. Nothing Demon Slayer-sized of course, but imo it will be big.

F9: The Fast Saga remained atop the weekend box-office, and enjoyed a good second weekend hold, dropping 29% by selling 243,084 admissions in its sophomore frame. That brings the ninth entry in the main Fast Saga up to 1.43 million admissions after just 10-days thanks to a lucrative Obon Festival holiday week. We need to see how it holds after another week or two post-holiday, but where it stands now, it has a good chance to outgross Furious 7's ¥3.54 billion ($29.2 million) to become the second highest-grossing film in the saga.  The Fate of the Furious is the biggest with ¥4.05 billion ($36.2 million), which isn't completely out of reach, but it will require a really, really good week three and four to get there. Still, becoming the second (slight chance at third) biggest film in the series will be a huge accomplishment.  

Belle saw a weekend increase in its fifth weekend, rising up to second place by selling 169,000 admissions, bringing its 32-day admissions up to 3.41 million. It's ¥1.1 billion away now from outgrossing The Boy and the Beast to become Mamoru Hosoda's highest-grossing film, which is all but assured. Legs have been very good, and with a couple more weeks of summer dailies remaining, it should comfortably get above ¥6 billion (~$55 million) in the next two or three weeks.

My Hero Academia: World Heroes' Mission saw a rough 51% drop in its second outing, but that's honestly fairly decent given its a fanbase-driven franchise that also has (had) a major giveaway going on over its opening weekend/first week of release. It sold 161,000 admissions over its second weekend, bringing its 10-day admissions up to 1.28 million. This is very strong, as it's almost matched the total of both its predecessors already. It'll outgross both of them in the coming days, and should be aiming for ¥2.5 billion (~$25 million) or a bit more, or roughly 40/50% higher than its predecessors. Big win here.

Crayon Shin-chan: Shrouded in Mystery! Flowers of Tenkazu Academy exceeded ¥1.1 billion over its third weekend of release, surpassing the total of last year's film already after 17-days (it actually surpassed it a few days earlier, around day 14 or 15 perhaps). It will probably get above ¥1.5 billion (~$15 million), which is pretty close to the long-running franchise's average gross. This is a sharp turnaround from last year's film which families avoided due to COVID concerns (like nearly all other young-skewing films in 2020).  

The Suicide Squad mostly disappointed. Playing very wide on 749 screens, it sold just 81,000 admissions over the weekend frame, and 134,543 admissions over its first three-days in release. It's an extreme 67% lower than the first Suicide Squad, but the first Suicide Squad is actually DC's second biggest opener in Japan. (Will Smith is a good draw.) So it had a high ceiling to fall from. It is at least higher than Wonder Woman 1984 and BARELY higher than Birds of Prey (though it opened on the first weekend where restrictions and closures began in 2020), so some slight progress for the DCEU here.

Tokyo Revengers is still doing very well, exceeding ¥3.5 billion and 2.7 million admissions. It's still well on track to reach the ¥4 billion milestone, giving Warner Bros. their second ¥4 billion hit of the year after part one of the Rurouni Kenshin finale.  

The Great Yokai War: Guardians disappointed, borderline bombing. I'd call it a bomb. Its weekend admissions weren't even released, which is definitely a sign of disappointment considering it was a wide release co-distributed by Toho. It sold 98,724 admissions over its first three-days in release on 374 screens though, which is also really bad. I don't know the budget here, but it looks like something that probably cost a fair bit (perhaps upwards of ¥1 billion). Toho can afford a bomb once in awhile, but definitely a hit for Kadokawa.  

Free Guy basically bombed, but...maybe performed okay? I personally think it performed a little better than I would have predicted before seeing the numbers anyway. It's Disney's widest release since 2019 due to not being boycotted (since it didn't debut on Disney+), playing on 524 screens. Weekend admissions aren't available, but it did sell 86,870 admissions over its first three days. Again, not particularly good or anything close, but a film such as this probably wouldn't be doing too much better anyway, in my opinion, in Japan. Just annoying that THIS is the one Disney film that didn't debut on Disney+. Any other film would have performed better (a LOT better due to the boycott) without Disney+ in the market.
