Post Re: Japan Box-Office: Demon Slayer Obliterating Record Books
What's the highest single day excluding Demon Slayer? I know Frozen 2 had about 840m on dec 1.
If that is the highest single day, DS might be able to beat it on Tuesday and next weekend and get all top 10 single days

Also i think the presale number for saturday missed some showings as the total seat number is only 800k while for sunday it's 900k, they should have similar number of seats. The true presale for saturday should be around 300k-ish (it probably missed the greeting showings and they have higher attendance), and sunday is about 50% higher on presales

Fastest Films to ¥15 billion:

17 - Demon Slayer: Mugen Train (2020)
36 - Spirited Away (2001)
38 - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (2001)
50 - Howl's Moving Castle (2004)
51 - Your Name. (2016)
53 - Frozen (2014)
58 - Bayside Shakedown: Save the Rainbow Bridge! (2003)
60 - Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2002)
76 - Princess Mononoke (1997)
94 - Ponyo (2008)
103 - Avatar (2009)
152 - Titanic (1997)

Going ahead and posting this now too, since it'll break ¥15 billion tomorrow, its 17th-day in release, getting there more than twice as quick as the previous record. All the films that have grossed ¥15 billion are included on the list, making Demon Slayer the twelfth film in history to reach the very high milestone. And depending on the actual tomorrow, it may surpass Ponyo and Avatar to crack the All-Time Top 10 after just three weeks (or if it misses, it'll get there on Monday).

Frozen II's second Sunday on Dec. 1st is the highest known single-day besides Demon Slayer now.

I'll have a list of Biggest Single-Days later today. Demon Slayer now occupies the top SIX spots, tomorrow will give it the top SEVEN spots, and this upcoming Tuesday could give it the top EIGHT spots. And who knows, if its fourth weekend delivers next week, it could end up with all TEN of the biggest single days in the market.

So you can take the Mugen Train to go see the Demon Slayer movie, and then go to the ufotable cafe to have Demon Slayer inspired lunch afterwards. And take the Mugen Train back home! :lol:

Why this movie works so well in Japan ? The music like for Frozen ? The story ? I really don't understand how a movie in 2020 during this crisis period can break all the record like that at the japan's box office ... Someone has explications ?

-Record-breaking manga sales (over 75 million books sold, more w/digital sales added, just this year alone so far)
-Record-breaking music sales and streaming (by LiSA)
-Incredibly well-received anime adaptation
-Anime is being rebroadcast on national TV in primetime (drawing 8/9 million viewers each week) right now
-Family-focused (sibling bonding) story
-Collaborations w/ many different types of companies (retail, food/restaurants, train lines, theaters themselves, etc.)
-Exposure around every corner: There are stairwells, building walls, and more throughout the country with Demon Slayer posters and other images plastered on them.
-Lack of competition (screens/seating) since Hollywood abandoning 2020/2021 has allowed normally impossible seating/showtime counts for it
-COVID hasn't been bad in the country (51st in the world in cases, just hit 100,000 cases after 9 months). The Greater Tokyo Area has as many people as California in a MUCH smaller area and only adds around 200 cases a day (80-90% of people wear masks, including Demon Slayer ones).

There's more, but simply put, there hasn't been anything this big in Japan, ever. Nothing. So the movie being out right now is the perfect storm of all perfect storms.

Fastest Films to ¥15 billion:

50 - Howl's Moving Castle (2004)

76 - Princess Mononoke (1997)
94 - Ponyo (2008)
103 - Avatar (2009)
152 - Titanic (1997)

Going ahead and posting this now too, since it'll break ¥15 billion tomorrow, its 17th-day in release, getting there more than twice as quick as the previous record. All the films that have grossed ¥15 billion are included on the list, making Demon Slayer the twelfth film in history to reach the very high milestone. And depending on the actual tomorrow, it may surpass Ponyo and Avatar to crack the All-Time Top 10 after just three weeks (or if it misses, it'll get there on Monday).


Nothing more can be said for Demon Slayer. Just jaw-dropping.

But I'm blown away by Titanic's performance too. It only reached ¥15 billion 5 months after release and managed to gross another ¥11 billion by the time it closed. Just how long was it in theaters for?

How rude. ;)

His promotional images mostly include the mask, but the more casual promotions (like the train line, café menus/wallpaper, and such) usually have him without it.

More than a year, or perhaps exactly a year. Not sure the exact number of months/weeks, but it was #1 for 22-weeks (5 months, 2 weeks) and didn't fall outside the top 10 until week 40 or 41, I believe. But it would resurface a few times after that, with week 51 being the last time it made the top 10. So 51 weeks minimum, but it was likely a good bit longer unless some theater deal was in place for a one-year run or something. It never put up any big numbers, it was just a very consistent and long run.

Post Re: Japan Box-Office: Demon Slayer Obliterating Record Books
If Demon Slayer finish his 3th week-end with $148M, how much could it add after his 4th week-end ? $185M possible ? And when could Demon Slayer exceed the $200M mark ?

Corpse, can you update the predictions that you made a few days earlier and which ends on Tuesday ?

Post Re: Japan Box-Office: Demon Slayer Obliterating Record Books
Doubling a third week total is pretty normal in the market, and most big films usually do so pretty easily. $185 million is certainly possible. In fact, I'd say it's "likely" unless something pretty drastic occurs. As for when it hits $200 million, a lot depends on how it performs over its fourth weekend. I'm going to guess it gets there sometime in the beginning of week 2 of November, so probably between day 25-28? It's a little early to give anything more accurate.

I'll wait until after Tuesday to project it any further, but will do so soon after then.

~500,000 - Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer (First Sunday)
~500,000 - Rookies


~ (Estimate).

Many are estimated since daily admissions aren't normally released in the market. In the case of more recent films, I got the estimate by taking its weekend admissions and dividing them versus the Saturday and Sunday share it achieved at the usual locations for individual daily admissions (so anything 2014-current should be pretty accurate). And for the older films, up until somewhat recent years, big openers would typically drop 10/15% on Sundays, so I used that as a basis on estimating their biggest day(s).

The only recent-ish film I'm not certain on is Frozen. I don't believe any of its days ever exceeded 500,000 admissions, but several certainly did 400,000+ though. Spirited Away is also a questionable one. It didn't do 500,000 admissions on any of its Saturdays or Sundays, but there could very well have been some weekday holidays where it did so given how strong it was over the weekdays, especially in its first 4-6 weeks in release.

And opening weekends (First Saturday and Sunday) for Hollywood films released from 2002-2005/2006 (except for HP4) are excluded. Remember that most of the Hollywood blockbusters from these years had previews added to their opening weekends, so it's not really known what the single day take would have been as a result. Just note that even if I you do split them in half, only a few would have hit 700,000.

If there are any films anyone think is missing, or other days from films already on the list, let me know and I'll do some research.

Toho Cinemas will begin offering Barrier-Free screenings of Demon Slayer at select locations.

Barrier-Free screenings provide audio descriptions (typically highlighting important scenes that can be overlooked) and Japanese subtitles that help the visually and/or hearing impaired enjoy the movie as well. This is especially helpful for elderly moviegoers, parents and grandparents as well, who can see popular movies with their family without worry of being confused. And some theaters will even offer special eye-glasses to assist further with these screenings.

This service is sparsely used, typically reserved for critically-acclaimed films that compete for awards (popular among the elderly), as it requires them (Sumitomo Corporation) to create a new version of the film, essentially. It's not as simple as turning subtitles on or off.

Sunday, as of 2PM, is totally bonkers.

1. It's flat, even up a tad 0.3%, versus last Sunday.
2. It has an insane sell-rate of 87.3% for the day (~45% of showings concluded).

I know it's a discount day, they're huge, especially when they fall on a Sunday (busiest day of the week already), but good lord. This is its third Sunday now, its 17th-day in theaters, and it's on par with its biggest days which are all bigger than everything already.

I'm estimating it'll end the day with a ridiculously insane 900,000 admissions at the usual locations which will be around 1,175,000 admissions overall. But being a discount day, its average ticket price for the day will be much lower, anywhere from 10-15% lower than it's been, so I'm guessing a gross around ¥1.4 billion ($13.3 billion) or just a tad lower.

This be its fifth day selling over 1 million tickets (no other film has ever sold 1 million in a day, not even close really). And it'll be the third or fourth biggest single-day ever, behind its other days, which will give the movie the seven biggest single-days ever. And it's pretty much guaranteed now to sell over 2 million admissions for a THIRD weekend in a row. Again, no film has ever sold 2 million admissions in a weekend, none have even sold 1.5 million. So... yeah.

Weekend Estimates and various chart updates will be posted in the morning (my time).

This makes me believe that the upcoming Tuesday will also have a chance to get above 1m admissions.

Didn't Frozen make about 720m on May 5th? Given the ticket price was about 1360(?) the admission should be around 530k.

And, speaking of Yokai Watch, mimorin posted some data involving its first weekend——
なお、昨年の妖怪ウォッチは完売分が、12/20は45657、12/21は9380を別枠で更に加算してください。

本日はこのレコードの上位に迫る記録が出ますので、後程各系列毎の小計分も記して報告したいと思います。

年月日 合計(除AEON) TOHO 109 KINEZO MOVIX UNITED AEON 作品タイトル名
20141220  262682  133455  24878  38761  65588  *****  *****  妖怪ウォッチ
20141221  251006  137103  26447  29641  57815  *****  *****  妖怪ウォッチ
If we add the missing data I think (and other people on tieba) the admission for Sat should be around 800k while for Sun it's around 685k

I am sure that it will have better drop than 25% in one of the weeks. Most giant movies see an increase or stay flat once in their run.
