>The Confidence Man JP easily held onto the #1 spot in its second weekend of release, and delivered an excellent 9% hold in the process. I expect good/great holds for most of its run, and it should end up finishing above the ¥2.5 billion ($25 million) mark. This would be a particularly good result for a film that opened just two weeks after a major holiday period.

>Aircraft Carrier Ibuki comes in second place, and didn't disappoint with a solid 194,000 admissions sold over the weekend frame across 331 screens. It reached 265,070 admissions since opening on Friday. This is a solid debut, but it's a very impressive debut for independent distributor Kino Films. It should finish around ¥1.5 billion ($15 million).

>Pokemon: Detective Pikachu slips to third place in its fourth-weekend of release, delivering yet another good weekend hold -- the second best in the Top 10. The film's trajectory remains unchanged, and it should finish just above the ¥3 billion ($30 million) milestone.

>Sadako makes a surprising debut in fourth place, selling 118,000 admissions over the weekend frame on 416 screens. It reached 152,023 admissions since opening on Friday. Its average ticket price came in much higher than I was expecting. I don't have an opening list of the many Sadako (Grudge) films, but this opening is likely in the middle of pack. Legs can be kind of unpredictable for the horror genre, but a total of ¥1 billion ($10 million) is doable.

>Kingdom rounded out the Top 5 by edging ahead of Endgame this weekend (the two films have been neck-and-neck for the past few weeks), earning itself a good hold in its sixth-weekend of release. Unless it experiences an unexpected drop next week, it's likely to outgross Death Note: The Last Name (¥5.2 billion) and then Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno (¥5.22 billion) to become the highest-grossing live-action film adapted from a Weekly Shonen manga series.

>Avengers: Endgame gets bumped out of the Top 5, but it's still performing well, and holding noticeably better than most superhero films. Its chances of reaching the ¥6 billion milestone was 50/50 at best just last week, but this weekend's hold should nearly lock the milestone up. I expect it'll finish at ¥6.1/6.2 billion ($55/56 million).

>Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire continues its excellent run in its seventh-weekend of release, and is keeping a strong ¥1 billion lead over last year's franchise record-setting release. It's very likely to exceed the ¥9 billion milestone now, and while its impressive lead over last year's film will begin to shrink very soon, I do believe it'll stay ahead of it and set a new franchise record. I expect it'll end up grossing around ¥9.2/9.3 billion ($84/85 million).

>Promare's weekend figure remains an estimate, but its three-day total is the actual. It sold 64,975 admissions since opening on Friday across 200 screens.

Everything mostly performed as expected this weekend. The Confidence Man JP held even better than early weekend numbers suggested though, delivering an excellent second weekend hold that easily allowed it to secure its second weekend atop the box-office. Sadako has the admissions to have earned a debut in the Top 5 (fourth or fifth) but this one isn't showing in any premium formats, so I expect its average ticket price to be relatively low. I think it'll just miss the Top 5 in revenue.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Upcoming Release Schedule (June & July
Here is a fairly wide-range list of projections:

¥10 billion+ potential (~$100 million+):
Weathering With You

¥5-¥10 billion potential (~$50-$100 million):
Toy Story 4

¥3-¥5 billion potential (~$30-$50 million):
Aladdin
Men in Black International
Pokemon: Mewtwo Strikes Back - Evolution
Spider-Man: Far From Home
The Secret Life of Pets 2

¥2-¥3 billion potential (~$20-$30 million):
The Great War of Archimedes

¥1 billion potential (~$10 million):
Almost a Miracle
Bento Harassment
Diner
If I Could Ride a Wave With You
Kamen Rider Zi-O: Over Quartzer!
The Fable
Tokyo Ghoul "S"

Less than ¥1 billion (Sub-$10 million):
Anpanman: Sparkle! Princess Vanilla of the Land of Ice Cream
Children of the Sea
Cold Pursuit
Don't Cry, Mr. Ogre
Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light
Free! Road to the World - Dream
Hot Gimmick: Girl Meets Boy
Sea of Revival
The Journalist
Uta no Prince-sama The Movie: Maji LOVE Kingdom
X-Men: Dark Phoenix


A few notes:
Weathering With You probably has the widest range since it could "only" earn around ¥10 billion, but it could also easily do ¥15 billion+. It's a uniquely difficult film to predict given how massive Shinkai's last film was.
Toy Story 4 is in a wide range. I expect it to do much better than ¥5 billion but I doubt it matches the success of its predecessor given how Pixar sequels have all declined in the market, so I wouldn't expect a total too close to ¥10 billion.
Aladdin is still a dark horse to me. There are both good and bad signs for it, equally, so I don't feel confident throwing out any specific number for it.

Thank you for the list! Any chance you could add projection ranges to the bigger movies (or all if you have time) based on current buzz and trends? Just so we get a sense for how things are going :)

>The Confidence Man JP is aiming to repeat atop the weekend box-office, and it's likely to do so. The film adaptation of the Fuji TV Comedy surprised last weekend and had some good weekdays, and pre-sales today suggest it'll have a strong second weekend hold as well. All of this is evidence of the film is going to have a nice run, and it'll likely keep a strong presence at the box-office until early/mid-July.

>Aircraft Carrier Ibuki is a bit of a dark horse and has a slight chance of surprising and taking the #1 spot. The rescue drama features a renowned cast and good reviews. Independent distributor Kino Films certainly has confidence it, too, given their aggressive marketing and release strategy (332 theaters is a lot for this distributor). Ultimately, I think it'll fall short of the top spot, but it'll have a respectable debut that Kino Films will be satisfied with. Look for this one to potentially have some strong legs.

>Pokemon: Detective Pikachu appears like it's coming back down from the boost it seemed to receive from previously weary moviegoers, but it's still holding well. The last two weeks suggested it could have easily exceed the ¥3 billion milestone, and while it'll still get there, it'll finish just barely above that mark again. Overall, this may still be viewed as "disappointing" in the market, but the ¥3/3.5 billion mark is where the recent films in the animated franchise have landed, so I'd consider it a modest success. It could have been much less rather than much more.

>Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire, Avengers: Endgame, and Kingdom will all continue to better their already excellent performances, with all three films still on track to reach their final milestones of ¥9 billion, ¥6 billion, and ¥5 billion, respectively. All three are above and beyond performers and should find themselves a spot on the Yearly Top 10 list.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Weekend Actuals; Charts Updated! (05/1
Do you mean an updated All-Time Multiplier List, or a 2019 Multiplier List? If the former, I'll update it once Bohemian Rhapsody officially ends its run (should be very soon). If the latter, I actually haven't posted one yet for 2019. I usually wait until around the mid-year to post the first yearly multiplier list, which is approaching. I'll try to get it up this weekend, or sometime early next week.

And welcome to the forum. :)

>The Confidence Man JP takes the #1 spot, not only debuting higher than its pre-sales ahead of the weekend indicated, but also higher than weekend estimates by a solid margin. The first film based on the Fuji TV Comedy sold an impressive 284,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 324 screens, and reached 357,228 admissions sold since Friday. This is a very good debut, and with an early strong reception, legs will probably be kind. I would expect a finish around ¥2.5 billion ($20-25 million). Certainly not shabby for this time of year.

>Pokemon: Detective Pikachu holds strong in second place, delivering the best hold in the Top 10 on an additional 180,000 admissions over the weekend. WOM appears to be quite good for the film, and I believe a number of weary moviegoers who may have been interested in seeing it, but not in theaters, are likely coming out now. This will probably be a short-lived benefit, maybe til the end of the month, but we may need to keep watch on this one -- it could end up being extra-leggy. For now, expect a total between ¥3.0-3.5 billion (~$30 million).

>Avengers: Endgame ended up coming in third place in a very close race. As mentioned just two weeks into its run, it's the highest-grossing non-Spider-Man film in the market, and then right before going into its fourth-weekend, it exceeded the ¥5 billion blockbuster milestone -- this makes it only the fourth superhero film to ever reach the mark. Expect a finish of about ¥6 billion ($53/54 million).

>Kingdom settles for fourth place in its fifth-weekend of release, and it delivered yet another impressive hold this weekend. It's now guaranteed to exceed the ¥5 billion blockbuster milestone, and then if it can gross more than ¥5.22 billion, it'll outgross Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno to become the highest-grossing domestic live-action adaptation of a Weekly Shonen manga series. This film was a major win on several fronts.

>Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire holds steady to round out the Top 5 in its sixth-weekend of release. It continues to track ahead of last year's franchise record-setting film, Zero the Enforcer, and should finish right around the ¥9 billion ($82/83 million) mark. Toho will probably need to give it some special screenings or a late expansion of some sort (like they did with last year's film), in order to surpass the franchise record of ¥9.18 billion, and they actually announced just that with "cheering" screenings at select locations beginning on May 30th.

>According to Our Butler, Iwane: Sword of Serenity, and Replicas remain estimates based on their weekend admissions rankings.

WOM is certainly a reason, but seeing as how Crayon Shin-chan was up Mon.-Mon. as well, there had to be some schools that were out which mostly caused the increase.

Pikachu increased on Monday from last week. Any particular reason or just WOM?

>The Confidence Man JP takes the #1 spot, debuting noticeably higher than early numbers were suggesting. The first movie in the TV comedy is enjoying strong reviews from both critics and audiences, so I would expect a good run to go along with its good opening. It'll probably exceed ¥2 billion ($20 million).

>Pokemon: Detective Pikachu holds strong in second place, delivering the best hold in the Top 10. WOM appears to be quite good for the film, and I believe a number of weary moviegoers who may have been interested in seeing it, but not in theaters, are likely coming out now. This will probably be a short-lived benefit, maybe til the end of the month, but we may need to keep watch on this one -- it could end up being extra-leggy. For now, expect a total between ¥3.0-3.5 billion (~$30 million).

>There is a very close race for the #3 spot (less than 1,000 admissions from ~70% of the market separate them), but I think it'll go to Kingdom since it plays better in rural areas (just don't be surprised if Endgame is #3). All of the pre-Golden Week openers in April have performed very well, and Kingdom is no exception. It's going to clear the ¥5 billion blockbuster milestone, a figure that has become difficult for domestic live-action films to reach. Also, there's even a possibility that it'll become the highest-grossing live-action film adapted from a Weekly Shonen manga series. It needs to outgross Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno's ¥5.22 billion total for that title, and that looks at least 50% doable.

>Avengers: Endgame is dropping a bit hard, unsurprising given most superhero films do, but it's now exceeded the ¥5 billion blockbuster milestone, becoming the only non-Spider-Man superhero film to ever reach this status. I don't expect it to develop any late-legs, so expect a finish around ¥6 billion ($53/54 million). Very, very impressive.

>Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire is holding steady, which was a bit of a concern coming out of a very, very big (Super) Golden Week holiday frame. It's difficult to tell whether or not it'll outgross last year's film to become the highest-grossing film in the long-running franchise, but it'll be very close either way. Last year's film got an expansion very late in its run (6 months later), which allowed it to exceed ¥9 billion. This year's film is on track to reach just about ¥9 billion ($82/83 million) without any expansion, so I guess it'll be Toho's decision if they want it to claim the record or not.

Not by a mile, but it'll be a comfortable #1. It really over-performed what its pre-sales were suggesting, probably indicating that it skewed heavily towards older adults (40-60+). Its opening is also much higher than most other shows with similar ratings (season 1 averaged just a 8.9% share) typically debut to.

Weekend Estimates will be up in a bit.

>Pokemon: Detective Pikachu debuted in third place two weeks ago; rose to second place in its second weekend; and now it may very well rise once again and take the #1 spot in its third weekend of release. The film has been enjoying good WOM, and is likely benefiting from those now turning out for it that were previously weary of the film due to its Hollywood production. I believe this will be a fairly short-lived boost, maybe til the end of the month, but we may need to keep watch on this one -- it could end up being extra-leggy.

>The Confidence Man JP will be attempting to block Pikachu from rising to #1, and it certainly could do it, though I think it'll fall just short of the top spot. Either way, it'll have a respectable opening weekend.

>The big trio from April, Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire, Kingdom, and Avengers: Endgame, will continue to add to their impressive running totals. Almost every April (pre-Golden Week) has a similar slate of three particular tentpoles (a Detective Conan film, a big live-action domestic film, and a big Disney film), and this year's trio are among the strongest of the decade. All three films will be in the Yearly Top 10 (Conan probably Top 3/5).

The top 3 films above are the only three with any numbers revealed so far, so I'm just going to post their numbers and just the weekend rankings of the remaining seven films. I'll then fill in the rest of the numbers when/if they're made available later this week.]

No additional numbers yet? Or do you have your own estimates for the lower ranks?


Nope. It's rare, but sometimes weekends before major holiday periods just never have their full results revealed. This is one of those cases. I can provide estimates for the other films for you though. I'll PM you once I edit the original post sometime over the weekend.

Hi! I would like to know if there's some knowledge of how much the Osomatsu movie has made till now. Thanks.


I stopped tracking it when it was near ¥600 million (~$5.5 million). I wouldn't have added too much after that point, but perhaps a finish around ¥650 million (just short of $6 million) is likely.

Also, welcome to the forum!
