... well at least Birds of Prey will pass 200m for sure! That seems decent.

With Onward released digitally today and next month on Disney Plus, I have to wonder if the theatrical release will still happen in Japan.

Did Hereditary (2018) release in Japan? I saw on Twitter that it is releasing in 4DX on March 27, do you think it will do well?

Good question.

Disney Plus hasn't launched in Japan, and won't before late-2020 at the earliest (2021 is probably more likely though). A lot of Disney films/shows (Marvel and Star Wars included) can already be streamed on Docomo (telecom company in Japan), so I wonder if Plus will receive a launch. Or if Onward will be added on Docomo itself.

Streaming is growing in popularity, but it's still behind traditional rentals and TV broadcasts in Japan. Digital is also gaining in popularity, but it's not as big as other markets. Physical releases of everything, music, movies, books/manga, etc. remains the #1 choice, at least for the time being.

If it doesn't get a physical release in Japan before Summer, I'd bet on Disney giving it a theatrical release at some point.

Aren't there a lot of movies that release digitally before they get a release in Japan?

Yes, on November 30th by Phantom Film. It was a limited release, playing on just 57 screens, and didn't have its numbers reported. It seems like an odd film to re-release in 4DX, but I'll keep you updated if it performs well.

Indeed, amazing performance. It'll probably finish with about $45 million.

Super bad news for me. I really don't want Olympic to postpone but Canada make the first big move by announcing not to participate this year.

Looks like Australia is following Canada's decision. At this point, it's looking increasingly likely for the Olympics to be postponed until 2021. At least it's better than an outright cancellation.

Is next year really safe? No one can answer. I think moving to 2032 without bidding again would be the best choice. Just cancel all the qualified athletes. Japan shouldn't be the only one to suffer from the postponement that will cost a trillion yen. Athletes should miss the opportunity to compete too. IOC should miss the income from 2032 bidding process too.

I can understrand your disappointment but next year will be much safer than this year. One the folks who survive this would have built herd immunity and we should also have vaccination ready by that time. That should make it much safer especially if you want millions of tourists coming in for the olympics.

Glad to know that Frozen 2 didn't beat Weathering for You. There is some justice in the world, after all.

It's also nice to see Howling Village cross the 1 billion yen mark. I hope Fukushima 50 can do the same! Too bad about AI Amok.

So I guess Parasite is overrated everywhere in the world...

I think AI Amok reached ¥1 billion. I don't have any data or source backing that up, but it was getting close so Warner Bros. probably kept it playing long enough to get there. We'll know sometime in June when the half-year figures come in.

Fukushima 50 may get there, but it'll be a crawl of course.

Regarding the Olympics, it does seem like it'll get cancelled with countries beginning to pull out. Health and safety first, obviously, but very disappointing for the Japan. Japan is still handling the Coronavirus very well though, only surpassing 1,000 cases two days ago, and incredibly just 136 cases in Tokyo (population 38 million!) still. The Japanese are proving why they're the masters of social distancing. Testing is approaching 20,000 daily now too.

>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.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Weekday Estimates (Tues., 03/24)
Toho Cinemas, the second largest chain (and busiest), and a few other chains are temporarily closing theaters in the Kanto (Tokyo) region beginning this weekend. Tokyo's governor expressed concern over COVID-19 this week after Tokyo reported its biggest single day rise in cases (47) and asked residents to stay home this weekend.

What also caused concern, although it should have been apparent before just two days out..., was how strong the pre-sales for Fate/stay night: Heaven's Feel III - Spring Song were. It was selling out many showings days in advance--unsurprisingly given the big debuts of the previous films-- so it got a very abrupt delay yesterday and will be released on April 25th, just before the Golden Week holiday period, instead of this weekend.

Tokyo and the surrounding prefectures account for the majority of box-office revenue in the country, so this will undoubtedly have a big impact on the box-office for awhile. If the box-office sees the expected 70% decline or so as a result of theaters in and around Tokyo closing, I probably won't post the estimated dailies after this week. I'll keep track of everything and determine if it's worth it.

Unfortunately, no weekend figures were released this past weekend. Fortunately, the Top 10 films were released, ranked by admissions, which I feel will be the only thing we get for a couple weeks at least. The box-office is down 55-60% with theaters closed in Tokyo and surrounding prefectures now. I'll post the Weekend Top 10 later tonight/tomorrow morning.

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.
