10 (08) ¥x18,841,800 ($173,000), -34%, ¥101,537,000 ($1.0 million), Judy (Gaga) WK2


This should be the low-point of COVID-19's impact on the box-office. Everything is holding very well now, so I imagine things will improve and get "back to normal" next month when some bigger films open. Other than Mulan (now opening May 22nd), none of the other big April films like Detective Conan have been postponed.

This upcoming weekend has a couple notable films opening, not event films, but they did decently on Friday. Birds of Prey will open above ¥100 million, maybe ¥150 million, to prevent the weekend from having a sub-¥100 million #1 film. And Not Quite Dead may approach/exceed ¥100 million as well. And to finish off the month of March, Fate/stay night - Heaven's Feel III - Spring Song will likely do ¥300/400 million net week.

really?

From Corpse:

It was originally slated for April 10th, but moved back to May 22nd. All domestic sites still have it listed for the May 22nd date. Unless things suddenly worsen, it should open on that day. Japan never saw the uptick or explosion in cases like just about everywhere else. They're not out of the clear yet, but since we're nearing April, things are looking good.

>Birds of Prey debuted atop the box-office, selling 81,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 736 screens; it sold 136,002 admissions over its first three-days in release. While certainly hindered by the slower business at the box-office, this is still a decent opening weekend all things considered. It's NOT the worst opening for a DC film. I'll post the Marvel/DC Opening Weekend Chart later to show where it landed.

>Not Quite Dead settled for a second place start, selling 67,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 333 screens; it sold 108,000 admissions over its first three-days in release. Not a particularly good start, but it's alright since it would have broke ¥100 million under normal circumstances.

>Parasite is still going strong in its eleventh-weekend of release, and has exceeded 3.2 million admissions now. Honestly, it's probably going to be around posting decent numbers for several more weeks, so I wouldn't completely rule out ¥5 billion ($45 million+) yet. It very likely would have hit the blockbuster milestone prior to COVID-19, but it may very well get there anyway.

>Yayoi, March: 30 Years That I Loved You bombed, though one has to factor in how much the COVID-19 could be affecting certain films before declaring flat-out bombs right now. Its weekend admissions weren't released, but it sold 54,907 admissions over its first three-days in release.

This weekend was easily among the weakest ever for the start of Spring Break weekend (typically one of the strongest weekends every year outside of Summer), but the box-office is still doing pretty well in the absence of the event films (Doraemon, Onward, Sonic, and Precure) being postponed. And this weekend, while very low, still isn't near any record lows and isn't even the weakest in the past five years.

Midsommar at $5.3m seems solid for a horror like that? 
 

Good for Birds of Prey. Shame BOM and Numbers aren’t updating its total.

I'm actually shocked. Horror movies always struggle to surpass even $1m in Japan, most of TCU movies ended below that mark. Why is Midsommar doing so well?

Weekend Ranking (Admissions): 03/28-29

01 (02) Not Quite Dead (Shochiku) Week 2
02 (01) Birds of Prey (Warner Bros.) Week 2
03 (05) Mask Ward (Warner Bros.) Week 4
04 (04) Parasite (Bitter's End) Week 12
05 (03) Fukushima 50 (Shochiku) Week 4
06 (06) Yayoi, March: 30 Years That I Loved You (Toho) Week 2
07 (10) Howling Village (Toei) Week 8
08 (---) Psycho Pass 3 - First Inspector (Toho Video Division) NEW
09 (09) Stolen Identity 2 (Toho) Week 6
10 (08) Midsommar (Phantom Film) Week 6


Here's last weekend's Top 10, ranked by admissions. No weekend figures were released. I don't know if weekend figures will remain unreported while theaters in Tokyo and surrounding prefectures are closed, or if this weekend was just a one-time instance since it was the first weekend with so many theaters closed. As a result of these theaters closed, the box-office is reportedly down 55-60%.

However, numbers are still being recorded despite no weekend figures being released, as some select cumulative totals were reported, so here they are below:

Reported Cumulative Totals (As of 03/29):
¥1,316,616,900 ($12.1 million) / 1,015,160 admissions - Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku (Toho) 52 Days in Release
¥1,127,550,300 ($10.5 million) / 867,294 admissions - Stolen Identity 2 (Toho) 38 Days in Release
¥728,000,000 ($6.7 million) / 558,000 admissions - Fukushima 50 (Shochiku) 24 Days in Release
¥665,840,600 ($6.1 million) / 527,436 admissions - Mask Ward (Warner Bros.) 24 Days in Release
¥389,116,100 ($3.6 million) / 264,986 admissions - Birds of Prey (Warner Bros.) 10 Days in Release
¥350,000,000 ($3.3 million) / 248,000 admissions - Not Quite Dead (Shochiku) 10 Days in Release


Again, this might just be a one-time thing, but I do expect the next couple weeks to probably be like this. Still, I'll update what's available.

Weekend Ranking (Admissions): 04/04-05

01 (02) Birds of Prey (Warner Bros.) Week 3
02 (01) Not Quite Dead (Shochiku) Week 3
03 (04) Parasite (Bitter's End) Week 13
04 (03) Mask Ward (Warner Bros.) Week 5
05 (07) Howling Village (Toei) Week 9
06 (05) Fukushima 50 (Shochiku) Week 5
07 (06) Yayoi, March: 30 Years That I Loved You (Toho) Week 3
08 (08) Psycho Pass 3 - First Inspector (Toho Video Division) WK2
09 (10) Midsommar (Phantom Film) Week 7
10 (11) Mishima Yukio vs. Tokyo University (Gaga) Week 3


Here's the past Weekend's Top 10 ranked by admissions. Once again, and unsurprisingly especially now with the stay-at-home order, no weekend figures were released. This weekend is down 90% compared to the same weekend last year, and the box-office is down a projected 63-75%, higher than the reported 55-60% range from last week. Goes to show just how much the box-office really depends on Tokyo and the surrounding prefectures.

Here are the reported cumulative totals, though, which are still be reported, just sparingly and kind of randomly:


Reported Cumulative Totals (As of 04/05):
¥4,580,000,000 ($42.0 million) / 3,300,000 admissions - Parasite (Bitter's End) 87 Days in Release
¥1,360,000,000 ($12.5 million) / 1,080,000 admissions - Howling Village (Toei) 59 Days in Release
¥740,000,000 ($6.8 million) / 565,000 admissions - Fukushima 50 (Shochiku) 31 Days in Release
¥700,000,000 ($6.4 million) / 550,000 admissions - Mask Ward (Warner Bros.) 31 Days in Release
¥600,000,000 ($5.5 million) / 440,000 admissions - Midsommar (Phantom Film) 45 Days in Release


Parasite might be able to challenge some records for time spent in the Top 5/10 (it has never left the top 5) if this mess would continue past May/into June. Of course, the validity of such a high ranking/record if it occurs under these circumstances comes into question.

Weekend Ranking (Admissions): 04/11-12

01 (01) Birds of Prey (Warner Bros.) Week 4
02 (02) Not Quite Dead (Shochiku) Week 4
03 (03) Parasite (Bitter's End) Week 14
04 (06) Fukushima 50 (Shochiku) Week 6
05 (05) Howling Village (Toei) Week 10
06 (04) Mask Ward (Warner Bros.) Week 6
07 (07) Yayoi, March: 30 Years That I Loved You (Toho) Week 4
08 (09) Midsommar (Phantom Film) Week 8
09 (08) Psycho Pass 3 - First Inspector (Toho Video Division) Week 3
10 (12) Captive State (Kino Films) Week 2


Here's the past Weekend's Top 10 ranked by admissions. As per the usual, no weekend figures were released this week due to theaters being closed in Tokyo and the surrounding prefectures (which were also apart of the state of emergency declaration last Tuesday), which account for 80% of the national box-office. And when you take into account that some other theaters across the country have also closed, the box-office is down over 90%.

And for the first time, no cumulative totals were reported this week either. Everything is earning peanuts at this point though, so their totals are barely moving at this point, so it's not a total surprise.

Hello everyone.  I just saw One Cut of the Dead and I loved it.  You can thank @SchumacherFTW for bringing it to my attention,and he said he discovered it because of this thread.  

 

I put it in the Review forum.  If anyone wants to wax poetic about it, it's up.
