Parasite is going to be mentioned a lot this week, and probably in the weeks to follow, so thought I'd mention that it earned ¥130/140 million ($1.2/1.3 million) on Tuesday. It's playing at 192 theaters, and sold through ~65% of its available admissions.

That single-day figure, its 33rd day in release, is on par with most of its past five weekends (up 5/10% over its past weekend), including its opening weekend.


Crazy number!

Hi Corpse, I have 2 questions :

How much could add Frozen 2 in Japan ? Something like $2M-$3M and $122M-$123M final run ?

And how much admissions made Avengers : Endgame in Japan in his first week end (Friday + Saturday + Sunday) and by the end of his run ?


Yeah, Frozen II looks to add $2/3 million more to its total to finish around $122/123 million.

Avengers: Endgame sold 956,000 admissions over its first three-days in release (Fri.-Sun.), of which 628,000 was over the weekend frame itself (Sat.-Sun.), and finished its run with 4.15 million.

Also, today (Tuesday) is a national holiday in Japan, the day after Parasite wins Best Picture. This couldn't have been planned any better! I will not be shocked if today alone is bigger than any of its past five weekend grosses.

>Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku debuts atop the box-office, selling 169,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 304 screens; it sold 223,260 admissions over its first three-days in release. A pretty good start, especially for early February, that will earn distributor Toho another ¥1 billion ($10 million) earner early in the year. Expect a total around ¥1.2/1.3 billion ($11/12 million).

>Howling Village achieves a second place opening, selling 116,000 admissions over the weekend frame on 211 screens; it sold 152,829 admissions over its first three-days in release. This is another pretty good start, not just for the time of year, but also given the lower screen count. Distributor Toei also has a very rough track record with live-action films, so this is a nice little surprise for them. It'll probably still miss the ¥1 billion ($10 million) milestone, but it does have a chance of reaching the mark.

>Parasite holds strong in third place in its fifth-weekend of release, off just 15% despite coming off an inflated prior weekend (just look at the drops for the other holdovers). So... it won Best Picture at the Oscars. That win is going to go a long way in a market like Japan, and the film was already holding extraordinarily well. We're going to see some major increases this week, and undoubtedly an increase next weekend. It'll probably continue to play very, very well even after next week, too. I'm expecting it to finish around ¥3 billion ($30 million), twice as much as its five-week total, but won't be surprised if I adjust that number higher next week.

>Kishiryu Sentai Ryusoulger VS Lupinranger VS Patranger rounded out the Top 5 in its debut, but its weekend admissions haven't been released. These films typically have very low average ticket prices since they skew young, so it probably sold between 80,000-90,000 admissions over the weekend.

>I'm basically going to lump the bottom half of the Top 10 together in this analysis, and just say that they all experienced the usual sharp declines that come off an inflated prior weekend (last Saturday was the first of the month, national discount day).

Indeed. Parasite is going to see a huge week or two, and if WOM is as great among the larger crowds as it has been so far during its run, it may go on to reach some truly great heights.

It was already looking at $20/25 million before the Oscars, but it could easily do $30/40 million now.

Regarding the Weekend Estimates: There was a malfuction that resulted in most of Sunday's ticket sales nlt being recorded. So I didn't bother given how off any estimates would have been. Weekend Actual will be up this evening.

No, I don't think so, but it is something to keep a watch on in the coming weeks/months. The Japanese are very, very health conscious though, so I believe they'll keep the virus at bay much better than most other countries if it becomes a problem there. Many Japanese already wear face/sickness masks year-round (I think 40% of the population), and several billion are sold each year (there's an entire market featuring them, from various designs, smell-filters, scents, and more) so that's already a positive.

Everything is down 50/60% (in admissions) today versus last Saturday because last Saturday was greatly inflated due to being the 1st of the month (national discount day). In revenue, the declines are more like 30/40%.

And I've been pretty busy the past coupe of days, so no Weekend Forecast this weekend. I'll post the Weekend Estimates on Sunday though, and things will be back to normal on Monday.

Hey corpse, has the spread of corona virus affected the box office? It seems like all films are 50%-60% down on Saturday.

The controversy is being overblown for sure. Just seems to be a case of research gone wrong in deciding upon a character name that fit the character. The author said there was no intent behind the name and Shonen Jump has apologized for the name, and they'll be changing it moving forward (and the new name will be featured once the chapter(s) get released in volume form.

Of course, China has already decided to ban My Hero Academia, temporarily at least, but China really overreacts about such issues (a number of anime/manga is banned there). And I'm not saying the name shouldn't be an issue or taken seriously, especially since it's understandable that some could be offended given the historical context, but if the apology is genuine and the name is getting changed, no need to go overboard.

This isn't nearly as big of a deal in Japan. It doesn't appear to be having any impact on the film's box-office or anime ratings. The film has been holding pretty well week-to-week (-30% or so), and the anime ratings are still good.

>AI Amok debuted atop the box-office this weekend, selling 165,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 346 screens; it sold 213,617 admissions in its first three-days of release. Solid enough start, right around, perhaps even slightly above, expectations. Films that open on a weekend where the first of the month falls on Saturday or Sunday have a bit of frontloading, but this opening is high enough to get the film above the ¥1 billion ($10 million) milestone.

>Cats enjoyed a good second weekend, selling a further 136,000 admissions, bringing its ten-day admissions up to 600,000. Most musicals develop good legs in the market, and while this drop isn't great, it's good enough where I believe the film will end up with a healthy total. Expect a finish around ¥1.5 billion ($14 million) or slightly more. A bit over $15 million is needed to surpass the U.K. for Japan to become the films' #1 overseas market.

>Parasite didn't see the weekend increase that I was expecting, but it did rise another position and an 11% decline is clearly nothing to be disappointed about. Its fourth weekend is 5% higher than its opening weekend. Its admissions after 24-days in release has reached 934,344. There's still little indication of the film slowing down yet, so I believe a total above ¥2 billion ($20 million) is looking good. And, of course, if it does well at the Academy Awards, it'll go much higher.

>Frozen II tumbled a bit in its eleventh-weekend of release, but it remains in the Top 5, a great accomplishment after eleven weeks. The film surpassed Jurassic Park on the all-time chart to become the 18th-highest grossing film ever, and after 73-days in release, it has sold 10.16 million admissions.

>Bad Boys for Life missed the Top 5, but expectations were low so I wouldn't necessarily say its opening weekend is disappointing. Its weekend admissions haven't been released, but its three-day admissions reached 94,734.

Hey Corpse,

Do you known a website where it tells all the upcoming movie releases in Japan? The reason why is that I been wondering when will New Mutants come out in Japan.


I'd use EIGA. It's probably the easiest to navigate.

The New Mutants doesn't have a release date yet.

And... I'm going to exclude Promare from my All-Time Multiplier Chart (that I'm going to post later). I only include wide releases (100+ screens) on that particular list since the vast majority of them don't expand beyond their initial screen count, and if they do, they only add a few screens after debuting.

Promare, and other limited releases (typically anime films), typically expand significantly after debuting if they open higher than expected and/or are very well-received, so their multipliers will naturally have a huge advantage over wide releases and would dominate the all-time best multiplier list.


But Corpse, Promare neither was a limited release (opened at 200 theaters), nor did it receive any screen count expansions, being down at 121 at its 8th weekend if memory serves me. It opened low, too low to justify its screen count, but had great legs and came back to the top 25 a bunch of times after it first dipped below it due to various celebrations (1 bill yen, a special giveaway and 4DX)


You are correct! I forgot it opened on 200 screens, was thinking 65 or 70 for some reason. I'll edit it onto the list. :thumbsup:

Yeah, Sunday will be considerably lower than Saturday this weekend, as well as versus last Sunday since a lot of would-be-business on Sunday will have gone to the Saturday. And remember that the percentage changes on Saturday you see are in admissions only, and therefore are likely 15/20% or so less in revenue.

For example, Frozen II was flat versus last Saturday in admissions, but its probably down around 20% in revenue. Still good, just using it as an example.

I'm honestly a bit surprised the Saturday holds (or increases) weren't stronger yesterday. The weekend holds will probably come in a little worse than my forecast.


That makes sense. Avg ticket price will be way lower plus sunday business would be impacted big time. Frozen is down about 45% on sunday at this point compared to last week. so overall drop in gross wont be as good as what it looked yesterday. So discount saturday does not help at a gross level just sells few more tickets.
