Hey! First post, been a lurker for while. Thanks Corpse for all the work you do. Super helpful!

I was wondering if you have the box office data of Kon Satoshi films?

Welcome to the forum.

None of his films, to my offhand knowledge, received wide releases, so I doubt any of them will have any figures easily available. I'll look into them for you though!

Notables (Outside the Top 10):
¥x49,000,000 ($435,000), -40%, ¥8,975,000,000 ($80.6 million), Code Blue (Toho) WK9

¥x28,000,000 ($250,000), -38%, ¥4,640,000,000 ($41.9 million), Mission: Impossible - Fallout (Toho-Towa) WK8


Not much going on this weekend, and the box-office as a whole will be rather uninteresting until December. There are a few notable releases between now and December, but October and November are two of the weaker months of the year.

>Christopher Robin will claim an easy second weekend atop the box-office, and it's aiming for a very good second weekend hold, as well. My initial ¥2 billion (~$20 million) projection may end up being a tad low in the end.

>Café Funiculi Funicula is a slight wildcard and could come in above the weekend forecast. It had a nice Friday start (it actually came in at #1), but its weekend pre-sales just aren't very good. This one could be skewing toward a much older crowd (seniors), though, who largely purchase their tickets at the theater itself. We'll see.

>Skyscraper is going to bomb. Dwayne Johnson, outside of the Fast and Furious franchise which can't be credit to him, hasn't been able to find an audience in the market.

Note: Sunday is a holiday, Autumn Equinox Day, but since it landed on a Sunday this year, I don't really think it'll provide much of a boost to the box-office. The holiday will also be observed on Monday, however, so most films will still experience some benefit.

Hey Corpse, Pages ago or so you posted the tv rating for movies and tv shows, for tv shows only Japanese shows are listed, but what about imported shows especially American, which ones have the highest?

I've never seen an American/Western TV show appear in the top weekly ratings, so none are getting anywhere near 10%, or probably even 5%. I'm not sure when they air though.

However, there are some Western shows that are are popular and have followings based on DVD/Blu-Ray rentals/sales. Most of them fall in drama category, of course, and are typically crime, medical, or mystery shows. CSI, Chicago Fire, and Sherlock are some examples.

I think it's a misunderstanding (maybe?) that Japan is heavily into Western pop culture (at least in recent years). It has influenced the country, no doubt about that, but almost nothing imported with a Western audience in mind is ever really successful anymore, whether it be video games (everything Microsoft redefines bomb), films (Japanese films account for almost two-thirds of the box office), music (90%+ of music sales are Japanese/South Korean acts), etc. There are currently only 5 Western music artists on Japan's Billboard Hot 100 (the highest being Ed Sheeran's -- almost two year old song -- Shape of You at #38), and there are zero Western singles on Oricon's Top 50 best-selling singles this week.

Yeah, the market has always struck me as being pretty insular, particularly as far as music goes.

Indeed.

I'll hopefully have Weekend Actuals and the Charts update tomorrow evening. Sunday was a holiday, therefore Monday became a holiday as a result, so figures have been delayed.

Note: Cumulative Totals as of Monday (09/24).

>Christopher Robin claims a second-consecutive weekend atop the box-office, delivering a very good second weekend hold following its holiday boosted opening weekend/week. Disney's of the classic characters will likely exceed the ¥2 billion ($20 million) milestone, making Japan its #1 overseas market.

>Café Funiculi Funicula earned itself a solid second weekend debut, selling 156,208 admissions over the weekend frame across 307 screens; and 294,974 admissions over its long four-day holiday weekend. The film is having its strongest showtimes in the morning, suggesting it's targeting an older demographic, so legs are probably going to be good -- a total over ¥1 billion ($10 million) should be secured, with ¥1.5 billion ($15 million) being a possibility.

>The Meg continues to perform quite well, and is still on track to reach the ¥1.5 billion ($15 million) mark.

>Gintama 2 has finally begun to show signs of slowing down compared to its predecessor now -- after being slightly ahead of it for over five weeks -- and will likely finish below the original film. However, it will probably finish around ¥3.7 billion ($33 million) or so, managing to retain 96/97% of the first film's audience. This is a remarkable achievement for a sequel in the live-action manga genre.

>Skyscraper bombed, unsurprisingly, and unfortunately only its weekend ranking has been revealed, none of its figures. When they're released, I'll update this post.

>Code Blue exceeded the ¥9 billion milestone on Monday, making it only the fourth domestic live-action film to ever reach the mark. It also exceeded 7 million admissions on Monday, making it the 49th overall film to reach the mark, and just fifth domestic live-action film to do so.

Umm... God Awful? :-P I'm sure there are a few films, but none that I have ever tracked or that I can recall; and they were probably special releases, such as limited runs (say, 4 weeks) and such.

It's very difficult for a wide release to fall below a 4 multiplier. For that to happen, it typically results from weekly 50%+ drops, and that's only really reserved for Kamen Rider films or films that appeal nigh-exclusively (90%) to a fanbase. 2018 only had one film that finished below a 4 so far (a Kamen Rider film); 2017 had two films finish below a 4 (a Kamen Rider film and a High & Low film); 2016 had no films finish below a 4; and 2015 only had two (a Dragon Ball Z and a Naruto film).

If Japan used the three day weekend system instead of the two day weekend system would below 4x multiple be more common?

Other Notable Holdovers (Below Top 12):
¥x27,000,000 ($240,000), -42%, ¥9,060,000,000 ($81.3 million), Code Blue (Toho) WK10

¥x12,000,000 ($105,000), -59%, ¥4,830,000,000 ($43.8 million), Incredibles 2 (Disney) WK9


Four openers are likely to debut in the Top 10, but none of them are really making much of an impact -- this will be a regular occurrence from now until December, for the most part. Christopher Robin will likely hold off the newcomers and claim a third-consecutive weekend atop the box office.

Yes, but there still wouldn't be too many because below a 5 is still uncommon, and those would be the only films that could fall under a 4.

The average multiplier is typically between 6.5-7 each year. If Japan used three-day weekends versus two-day weekend, then I'd estimate the average multiplier would fall to around 6. Friday is still generally much weaker than Saturday or Sunday, and while it's become more common for films to open on Friday not, not all of them do.

Also, there was yet ANOTHER typhoon that hit Japan this weekend... I've lost count, but this one is like the 25th one to either make landfall/affect the country this year.

As a result, the weekend box office was hit pretty hard due to a very weak Sunday, and Monday looks to be down considerably. I'll have numbers up tomorrow.

And it looks like there is yet another typhoon that could hit parts of Japan later this week.

Hopefully not! Japan has experienced a truly ridiculous number of disasters over the past three months -- it's been insane.
