Hi Corpse,

Do you think you can track 2019 KyoAni movies? (Sound Euphonium! Oath's finale, Free Road To the World and the new movie Violet Evergarden Eternity and the Auto Memories Doll)

Thanks :)

Hey Corpse. Is it true that Stampede surpassed 5.2 billion already?

Edit: Sorry what I saw is prediction for its final numbers.

I'm not the worker in this industry, but Adam Valdez, the film’s VFX supervisor (also 2016 Oscars winner for Jungle Book's best VFX) at Moving Picture Company (the visual effects and production company that make Lion King 2019) said “Ultimately, it's an animated film,”

Also at another Lion King topic, I just saw ANN make an ultimate article about the Lion King vs. Kimba the White Lion controversies

Animation is not the use of computers to make a movie. It's the use of computer based on 2d storyboards to make a product that doesn't want to be an exact reproduction of reality. Otherwise you may see every modern blockbuster as a new Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

The Lion King (2019) may identifies itself as live-action for marketing and award eligibility reasons but it is through and through animation.

Of course, but feel free to help me keep track of it as well. It's a film that hasn't been tracked on a weekly basis for some time now, and it hasn't had a presence in the Top 25 films for a while either, so any updated figures come via articles that I can easily overlook. I will eventually catch them, but that could take weeks/months.

And welcome to the forum. Don't be shy.

Hello, another anime fan and former lurker reading the weekly charts here, thanks for the great work Corpse!!!

I dropped by to ask if you could keep an eye on Promare. Between hitting 10 billion yen milestone on 13/8, its 100th day of screening on 31/8 and the number of theaters rising back up to 100+ since 27/8 and an upcoming commemorative illustration being released this coming Friday, it's propably going to keep on cashing a bit more.

A Famitsu article today that got retweeted by the movie'a official account has it at 1,1 billion yen already

>Weathering With You reclaims the #1 spot in its seventh weekend of release, marking its fourth non-consecutive weekend at #1. Its weekend admissions were up 14% compared to last weekend, selling a further 347,000 admissions, but since Sunday was a national discount day, it ended up dropping 1% in revenue. Its seven-week admissions rise to an incredibly impressive 8,751,178, allowing Makoto Shinkai's latest to surpass Aladdin to become the most-attended film of 2019. It'll overtake Aladdin in revenue next weekend to become the highest-grossing film of 2019, and is on course to reach at least ¥14 billion ($130 million) to become the 12th highest-grossing film of all-time, but that ¥15 billion milestone remains in play for now, so does cracking the all-time Top 10.

>The Lion King slips to second place in its fourth weekend of release, selling an additional 264,000 admissions. Its four-week admissions have climbed to 3,855,232. Disney's live-action remake of its classic remains on a steady path toward a total around ¥7.5 billion ($70 million). Again, this is noticeably less than most of Disney's other live-action remakes, but this will still end up a big success.

>One Piece Stampede did what it needed to this weekend to guarantee a total above the ¥5 billion blockbuster milestone. The 20th anniversary celebratory film sold a further 200,000 admissions over its fourth weekend of release, and has reached 3,583,493 admissions so far. I expect it'll enter a free fall very soon, but it's very likely to outgross One Piece Film Gold (¥5.18 billion) and become the second highest grossing film in the franchise.

>Samurai Shifters performed decently, selling 199,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 325 screens, and reached 275,617 admissions since opening on Friday. The film will have a bit of frontloading to it since it opened on a discount weekend, but a total above the ¥1 billion ($10 million) milestone is locked up with this debut.

>Once Upon a Time in Hollywood came in a bit higher than I estimated, selling 170,000 admissions over the weekend on 320 screens, and reached 223,216 admissions since opening on Friday. Tarantino's latest was difficult to predict over the weekend, lots of ups and down, but it ultimately delivered a fair enough debut. Expect a total a bit above the ¥1 billion ($10 million) milestone.

>Toy Story 4 ends its last summer weekend with a good hold that will guarantee it eventually reaches the ¥10 billion milestone, it'll just take two or three more weeks since its weekday business is going to collapse now. The fourth and final(?) entry in the series has sold 7,530,493 admissions after eight-weeks in release.

>God's Blessing on This Wonderful World! Crimson Legend's weekend figure is an estimate, but its three-day total is an actual. Just barely considered a wide release, playing on 100 screens, the film sold 155,551 admissions since opening on Friday.

So, before anyone wonders why the drops (although great, mostly) above are "high" compared to the drop in admissions, it's because of Sunday. It was the 1st of a month, meaning ticket prices were discounted 40% nationwide. So while the admission drops are amazing, the revenue drops typically end up being 10-15% higher. And when the 1st of a month does fall on a weekend, it does help the drops overall due to the increased business. That said, actuals can differ a bit more due to how the ticket prices are affected.

Anyway,

>Weathering With You without a doubt retakes the #1 spot in its seventh weekend of release, marking its fourth non-consecutive weekend at #1. Its weekend admissions were also up 15/16% versus last weekend, but as I mentioned, the revenue percentage will be worse. But, since it enjoyed such a bump in admissions, it likely experienced a small weekend increase in revenue regardless. Very, very impressive result here, and what it needed to keep that ¥15 billion ($140 million) milestone on track.

>The Lion King slips to second place in its fourth weekend of release. It continues to perform well, and remains on track for a total around ¥7.5 billion (~$70 million).

>One Piece Stampede did what it needed to this weekend to guarantee a total above the ¥5 billion blockbuster milestone. I expect it'll enter a free fall very soon, but it's very likely to outgross One Piece Film Gold (¥5.18 billion) and become the second highest grossing film in the franchise.

>Samurai Shifters performed decently, and should certainly reach the ¥1 billion ($10 million) milestone (likely around ¥1.2/1.3 billion).

>Once Upon a Time in Hollywood continued to be pretty unpredictable over the weekend, and basically winded up slightly higher than it was expected to after all, despite the good pre-sales. Films that open on a weekend where the 1st of a month lands tend to be a little frontloaded, but even if that's the case here, Tarantino's latest should reach ¥1 billion ($10 million).

>Toy Story 4 held well and is guaranteed to exceed ¥10 billion ($93/94 million), though it still may take a couple of weeks since its weekday business is going to collapse now that summer vacation has concluded.

Post subject:  Re: Japan Box Office: Weekend Forecast (08/31-09/01)

Definitely. And Saturday's results confirms that it'll return to the #1 spot at the box-office this weekend, its seventh weekend of release. I don't want to get ahead of myself, but a weekend increase is looking possible.

And remember, the Radwimps soundtrack for the film reached #1 on the daily charts (#2 on the weekly), and has had two singles ("Grand Escape" and "Is There Still Anything That Love Can Do?") charting well. Both singles reached #1 on the digital sales chart. The soundtrack is still in Oricon's Weekly Top 10 and has sold 108,849 physical copies after six weeks. I'm not sure of the digital album sales, but they're probably impressive if the singles are any indication.

And Makoto Shinkai's novel adaptation of his film also debuted at #1 and has sold 401,824 copies after six weeks. It was #1 in its first three weeks of release, fell to #2 in its fourth week, returned to #1 in its fifth week, and was #2 in its sixth week.

So... the "Tenki no Ko" (Weathering With You) name is doing very, very well. Not many can claim to have a #1 film, #1 soundtrack, #1 single/singles, and #1 novel. Weathering With You had a #1 everything at the same point in time. ;-)

Well, you'd have to first consider the budget of the film, and unfortunately that's an unknown right now. Budgets can be very hard to come by in Japan, so it's likely we'll never really know how much the film cost to produce.

With that said, we do have a few examples to give us a rough guess. Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli films typically had their budgets revealed in the past, and the most costly of them ended up at a staggering ¥5 billion due to the using traditional animation methods. Their films have been the most expensive in the Japanese movie industry. I'd bet on the five most expensive Japanese films to all be by Studio Ghibli. This was the major contributing factor on why Studio Ghibli had to close its movie production department in 2014.

And we have examples of yearly anime film productions, such as Doraemon or Detective Conan, having budgets between ¥500 million to ¥1 billion (I suspect Conan is creeping higher in recent years though). And while I can't recall which films exactly, I seem to recall that ¥1-2 billion has been reported a couple of times for some regular anime film productions (think films by Hosoda).

So... it's probably safe to assume a budget above ¥1 billion with near 100% certainty, and a budget above ¥2 billion is also likely given the event status of the film. But I highly, highly doubt it's anywhere near the cost of the Studio Ghibli films since Makoto Shinkai utilizes modern animation technology and CGI which is much cheaper than traditional animation.

I'd guess around ¥3 billion, but that's just an educated guess. So if we use ¥3 billion, then ¥6 billion would have been seen as the mark of success. It's situational of course, but similar to Hollywood, it's generally believed that a film needs to make doubt their budget to turn a profit. That's why a gross of ¥1 billion is considered the commercial success milestone in Japan since non-tentpole theatrical releases reportedly keep their budgets around ¥500 million.

And going back to Studio Ghibli for a second: Isao Takahata's final film, The Tale of Princess Kaguya, reportedly cost over ¥5 billion to produce. It would have required a minimum of a ¥10 billion gross (probably more like ¥11/12 billion) to break even/turn a profit, and it grossed ¥2.47 billion... It lost A LOT of money. Even The Wind Rises, currently Miyazaki's last film, despite having grossed ¥12.02 billion (almost enough to make the Top 15 All-Time at the time), supposedly didn't make them a profit at the box-office alone due to, again, a reported budget of ¥5 billion+. Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli did (do) things their own way, but the writing was on the wall regarding them closing shop.


Thank you so much. I didn't expect such an elaborate answer. So Weathering With You is most likely already a huge success.

A bit of a tricky weekend to predict, but it should be a strong one to close out the summer box-office season. Why is it tricky to predict though?

Firstly, it's the last weekend of summer vacation, so sometimes films targeting children/teens really benefit and deliver excellent holds (and even an occasional increase). And secondly, Sunday is a 1st of a month, meaning it's a nationwide discount ticket price day (40% off prices). This will mean Sunday ticket sales will be significantly stronger than usual, while the average ticket prices will be way down. However, since everything will be selling more ticket than they typically would, nationwide discount days still see gains in revenue most of the tie due to the increased business.

We're probably going to see a close race for #1 once again between Weathering With You and The Lion King. I'm favoring the former taking back the #1 spot after losing it in its fourth weekend of release, but we've seen audiences really take advantage of getting those discounted premium showing ticket prices (IMAX/3D) for the latter, so it's up in the air at this stage.

And I may have misspoke about Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. It didn't perform well on Friday, but its Saturday pre-sales are quite impressive. Unless they're misleading (maybe skewed due to a small, but dedicated, Tarantino base and interest in DiCaprio & Pitt), it stands a very good shot at making the Top 5 and possibly aiming for third place. We'll see -- so far, it's behaving unpredictably.

Well, you'd have to first consider the budget of the film, and unfortunately that's an unknown right now. Budgets can be very hard to come by in Japan, so it's likely we'll never really know how much the film cost to produce.

With that said, we do have a few examples to give us a rough guess. Hayao Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli films typically had their budgets revealed in the past, and the most costly of them ended up at a staggering ¥5 billion due to the using traditional animation methods. Their films have been the most expensive in the Japanese movie industry. I'd bet on the five most expensive Japanese films to all be by Studio Ghibli. This was the major contributing factor on why Studio Ghibli had to close its movie production department in 2014.

And we have examples of yearly anime film productions, such as Doraemon or Detective Conan, having budgets between ¥500 million to ¥1 billion (I suspect Conan is creeping higher in recent years though). And while I can't recall which films exactly, I seem to recall that ¥1-2 billion has been reported a couple of times for some regular anime film productions (think films by Hosoda).

So... it's probably safe to assume a budget above ¥1 billion with near 100% certainty, and a budget above ¥2 billion is also likely given the event status of the film. But I highly, highly doubt it's anywhere near the cost of the Studio Ghibli films since Makoto Shinkai utilizes modern animation technology and CGI which is much cheaper than traditional animation.

I'd guess around ¥3 billion, but that's just an educated guess. So if we use ¥3 billion, then ¥6 billion would have been seen as the mark of success. It's situational of course, but similar to Hollywood, it's generally believed that a film needs to make doubt their budget to turn a profit. That's why a gross of ¥1 billion is considered the commercial success milestone in Japan since non-tentpole theatrical releases reportedly keep their budgets around ¥500 million.

And going back to Studio Ghibli for a second: Isao Takahata's final film, The Tale of Princess Kaguya, reportedly cost over ¥5 billion to produce. It would have required a minimum of a ¥10 billion gross (probably more like ¥11/12 billion) to break even/turn a profit, and it grossed ¥2.47 billion... It lost A LOT of money. Even The Wind Rises, currently Miyazaki's last film, despite having grossed ¥12.02 billion (almost enough to make the Top 15 All-Time at the time), supposedly didn't make them a profit at the box-office alone due to, again, a reported budget of ¥5 billion+. Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli did (do) things their own way, but the writing was on the wall regarding them closing shop.

I just registered to say thank you for all the work you've done, Corpse! I am a huge Makoto Shinkai fan since I watched 5cm per second for the first time back in 2009. So when Your Name exploded, I somehow found my way here and eagerly awaited the update on its total every week. :)

Anyway, I hope it's ok if I ask a question. Do you have any idea how much money Weathering With You has to make to be considered successful by Toho? I mean, probably nobody expects it to be as a big as Your Name but how little would it have to make to be seen as a disappointment?

Thanks again for your work! Maybe I'll lurk less in the future and ask questions more often. :-)

Not a bad start for Samurai Shifters, but I doubt it's good enough to beat either The Lion King or Weathering With You over the weekend frame. And seeing as how Weathering With You has been holding better than The Lion King throughout the week (and beat it on Friday), I'm pretty confident in it finally reclaiming the #1 spot after coming close (sometimes very close) since being dethroned in its fourth weekend.

So-so for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. Tarantino films don't really do too well in Japan, so no surprise this one isn't going to buck that trend. That said, DiCaprio and Pitt are draws in Japan, and the market is still one that star power matters in, but I guess even they couldn't get too many interested here.

Also, One Piece Stampede had a great Friday, down only about 15% versus last Friday. Some limited freebies (rather rewards for repeat viewers) are being handed out this weekend, I believe, so it's benefiting from the promotion. Let's see if that carries over into the weekend.
