Post Re: Japan Box Office: End of an Era in Japan
Endgame will certainly be big. I have little doubt about that. It's very likely to achieve the biggest opening weekend for a Marvel/DC film outside of the original Spider-Man trilogy, and it could even approach them (in revenue, not admissions).

It's just that most of the biggest openers in the market have an unfair advantage of having previews (sometimes a week's worth) included in their openings, when previews have been excluded from opening weekends for ten years now. Previews/early-showings aren't even a thing in the market any longer besides on a very limited scale for very few releases. This is why I made a separate list I call "Biggest Modern Opening Weekends" that charts opening weekends from 2008 onward.

Here it is below. Next to their "Modern" rank, in parenthesis, you can see how each film ranks on the "All-Time" chart:

Biggest Modern Opening Weekends (2008-) [REVENUE]

Looking around Toho's website, I'm seeing many more sellouts for Endgame than I did for Conan. Now obviously it won't outgross Conan, but just how crazy of a number are we going to see here?

Last I read the current emperor would step down March 31. So there had been a one-month delay.

I hope Japan remains a strong peaceful agent in the region.

It's going to be big. As long as it doesn't burn off too much demand on Friday, it could reach ¥1 billion over the weekend frame. And as you probably know, the only superhero films to open above that mark (or even come close) has been the original Spider-Man trilogy.

If you're comparing their Fridays, though, Endgame will be much bigger than Detective Conan on that same day. Live-action films, especially big Hollywood imports, play very well on the weekdays. Detective Conan plays fine on weekdays (which includes Fridays) compared to most other animated films, but it's still a weekend-friendly series.

Endgame is also playing on a large variety of screens due to its various premium format showings, dub and sub screenings, etc., so a large number of them are either average sized auditoriums or smaller, which sellout much faster naturally, to accommodate all the different types of showings.

Given its event/finale status, moviegoers will be more inclined to spend the extra money on premium formats. It'll probably come in close to ¥1,600 ($14/15).

Shinzo Abe has always faced a difficult battle in revising Japan's post-war constitution, and that's unlikely to change. While Emperor Akihito has regularly voiced opposition to Abe's vow to revise the constitution, and his son will likely share the same ideology when he becomes Emperor next week, his/their influence has little/nothing to do with actually changing anything given the politics in Japan.

Abe's LDP has majority over both the Upper and Lower Houses, but amendments require a two-thirds vote from both houses. They have a 61% majority in the lower house, so they could likely get the two-thirds there, but it's much harder in the upper house given their 52% majority there. What further complicates this is that the NKP, another political party, is in a coalition with the LDP. The LDP currently relies on the NKP's support to maintain its firm majority (offering voter support in exchange for not running candidates in desired districts), and the NKP oppose the specific Article 9 (peace-clause) being amended. They might come to an agreement to allow stronger defense or something via an amendment, but it'd largely be a wasted effort if Article 9 is left unchanged.

And then following any unlikely vote that gets through both houses on a two-thirds majority, there's a national referendum. A referendum only requires a simple majority, but polls show the Japanese people are largely against any constitutional revisions, citing "unnecessary reasons" when asked, and generally no more than 30% support any changes. A referendum on Article 9 would probably end up being a ~60/40 vote in opposition of revision.

In the 70+ year history of the post-war constitution, no amendment has ever occurred.

Very, very early into the day, and Friday business doesn't always determine how business is over the weekend, but Endgame is looking huge so far.

Its early morning Friday admissions are about double those of Infinity War. Again, it's early, but a ¥1 billion+ debut over the weekend is looking good. It would be only the fourth Marvel/DC film to open above that mark (the first in 12 years), following the original Spider-Man trilogy of films.

Thanks for the explanation. I think the popularity of an amendment or leaning towards militarism will gradually increase with an expansionist China and a weakening Japan-US tie.

That's the likely range, and very huge. It's far and away the biggest Friday take since at least Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2, and it's about on par with it. The Friday number alone is bigger than 90% (actual percent!) of the opening weekends for every Marvel/DC film.

A ¥1 billion+ opening weekend is as close to a guarantee as you can get now. I'll post its pre-sales (as long as they're above 80,000, which is very likely) for Saturday later this evening compared to other major openers in recent years. And then I'll be posting the hourly ticket sales for it this weekend as well to compare it to all the major openers in recent years.

Fantastic!

I knew it was huge, but didn't know how it quite compared to other Fridays since they're not as easily documented.

And when you say 90% of every M/DC you mean 2-day correct?

What do you see as the absolute upper bound for the 2 day? Is Raimi a possibility?

Yeah, I'm not going to take the time to actually compare it to the Friday numbers for past films. Friday isn't part of the weekend in Japan, it's just a regular weekday, so it's difficult to accurately compare films on Fridays unless they're from the same franchise or a very comparable genre due to how drastically different films can perform on weekdays.

Yes, I mean the traditional 2-day opening weekends.

It should definitely challenge the openings of the original Spider-Man trilogy, which is absolutely incredible. No Marvel/DC film has ever been able to compare to them before now. I actually think it'll top Spider-Man 2's debut; Spider-Man 1 and 3 will be more challenging, but it's possible.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: End of an Era in Japan
Before I post the pre-sales here very soon, one quick observation: Endgame is playing well above 50% capacity in the urban prefectures, perhaps as high as 60-65% of its available tickets have already been sold in these areas before the first showtimes even begin. However, it's playing noticeably weaker in the rural prefectures, even more so than big Hollywood releases typically perform.

Of course, an overwhelming 80/85% of box-office receipts come from urban areas, so that's where you obviously want to be overperforming. That said, weak ticket sales in rural areas can keep a certain threshold from being achievable.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Endgame Weekend Tracking (Pre-Sales Up
Very, very strong pre-sales figure. Just because it's not near the top in pre-sales, doesn't mean it won't match or exceed some of the films above it over the weekend.

For comparison, its pre-sale figure of 92,116 is 63% above Infinity War's 56,665. If it follows a similar weekend trajectory as its predecessor from here, it'd get over 700,000 admissions (712,000 if exact) over the weekend. But I expect it to come in closer to, or even above, 800,000 admissions due to the strong likelihood of a significant Sunday increase since it's the weekend before Golden Week kicks off.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Endgame WKND Tracking (First Sat. Upda
Very strong start to begin the day. That should be enough to get it above 250,000 for the day, though I'd be surprised if it comes in under 275,000.

As mentioned, no other superhero film has performed at this level (besides the original Spider-Man trilogy), so it's difficult to find a good comparison. If I had to pick a film on the list that it could perform similarly throughout the day, it might be one of the Star Wars films (namely Episode VII due to their shared event status), but I don't think they're ideal comparisons either.

It'll be huge in the evening.

From its daily pattern so far, Star Wars VII and Beauty and the Beast appear to be the closest comparisons so far, so for now, check and see how they performed as the day progressed.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Endgame WKND Tracking (Sat. Updates)
Is reception to Endgame as positive in Japan as other markets? The record MCU opening suggests it is expanding beyond the usual fanbase, so I'm curious how people who don't usually watch comic book movies are responding to it. Should we expect frontloaded legs, or will the increased interest by general audiences mean better legs?

On a related note, I wonder if Endgame can repeat #1 next weekend over Detective Pikachu.

Today I'm a spillover from Endgame so I watch Okko's Inn (JP release date Sep 21, 2018). It's very sweet but at the same time very sad story.
