Post Re: Japan Box Office (2013) Aeon Buys Out Warner Bros. Cinem
I'm about to post my Top 10 of 2013 Predictions, but before I do that, here is how my predictions matched up with the actuals from 2012:

My Top 10 2012 Predictions (Posted 1/26/2012)
01 Umizaru 4: Brave Hearts - ¥8.4 billion ($107 million)
02 Bayside Shakedown 4: The Final - ¥7.6 billion ($96 million)
03 The Amazing Spider-Man - ¥6.4 billion ($81 million)
04 Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol - ¥5.5 billion ($71 million)
05 Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo - ¥4.5 billion ($57 million)
06 Pokemon Best Wishes: Kyurem Vs. The Sacred Swordsman: Keldeo - ¥4.4 billion ($56 million)
07 Resident Evil V: Retribution - ¥4.2 billion ($53 million)
08 Brave - ¥4.1 billion ($52 million)
09 Men in Black 3 - ¥3.7 billion ($47 million)
10 ALWAYS: Sunset on Third Street '64 - ¥3.6 billion ($46 million)

Vs. Top 10 2012 Actuals:
01 Umizaru 4: Brave Hearts - ¥7.33 billion ($93 million)
02 Thermae Roame - ¥5.98 billion ($76 million)
03 Bayside Shakedown 4: The Final - ¥5.95 billion ($75 million)
04 Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol - ¥5.38 billion ($70 million)
05 Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo - ¥5.2-5.4 billion ($62-65 million) Est. Total
06 The Wolf Children Ame and Yuki - ¥4.22 billion ($54 million)
07 Resident Evil V: Retribution - ¥3.81 billion ($48 million)
08 Doraemon: Nobita and the Island of Miracles - ¥3.62 billion ($46 million)
09 Pokemon Best Wishes: Kyurem Vs. The Sacred Swordsman - Keldeo - ¥3.61 billion ($46 million)
10 The Avengers - ¥3.60 billion ($46 million)

I was close on Men in Black 3 and ALWAYS: Sunset on Third Street, but they missed the Top 10 with ¥3.2 billion ($42 million) and ¥3.44 billion ($44 million), respectively.

No one could foresee Thermae Romae becoming the juggernaut it did and that both Hollywood's Summer blockbusters, Spider-Man and Brave, would do so poorly. Wolf Children was a dark horse, but not many anticipated the incredible run it had.

Top 10 of 2013 Predictions:

01 The Wind Rises/The Princess Kaguya Story - ¥18.0 billion ($215 million)
02 One Piece Film Z - ¥6.2 billion ($74 million)
03 Evangelion: Final - ¥5.6 billion ($67 million)
04 Monsters University - ¥4.8 billion ($57 million)
05 The After-Dinner Mysteries - ¥4.2 billion ($51 million)
06 Oblivion - ¥4.0 billion ($48 million)
07 Pokemon Best Wishes: ExtremeSpeed Genesect - ¥3.7 billion ($44 million)
08 World War Z - ¥3.5 billion ($42 million)
09 Doraemon: Nobita's Secret Gadget Museum - ¥3.3 billion ($40 million)
10 Les Miserables - ¥3.2 billion ($39 million)
-Detective Conan: Private Eye in the Distant Sea - ¥3.2 billion ($39 million)

The easy #1 of 2013 will be the Studio Ghibli double feature. The two films are directed by Ghibli's co-founders Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takahata (best known for Grave of the Fireflies). The Wind Rises is Miyazaki's first film since Ponyo (earned ¥15.5 billion or $164 million on 12.87 million admissions in 2008), and The Princess Kaguya Story is Takahata's first film since My Neightbors the Yamadas 14 years ago.

Hayao Miyazaki's Most Recent Films:
2001 - Spirited Away - ¥30.4 billion ($244 million); 23.5 million admissions (#1 All-Time)
2004 - Howl's Moving Castle - ¥22.0 billion ($207 million); 15.0 million admissions (#3 All-Time)
1997 - Princess Mononoke - ¥19.3 billion ($165 million); 14.2 million admissions (#5 All-Time)
2008 - Ponyo - ¥15.5 billion ($164 million); 12.87 million admissions (#8 All-Time)

>One Piece Film Z is doing well enough to secure itself a Top 3 spot this year, if not the #2 position.

>The final Evangelion film may or may not be released in 2013. It's release is still tba, but it was suppose to come out this year (Eva 3.0's release wasn't known until 4 months before it opened). If it doesn't get released, I included Detective Conan below the Top 10 since his films almost always do between ¥3-3.4 billion. We'll known sometime in the Summer I suspect.

>I think Monsters University had great potential given it's predecessor's reputation (second highest attended Pixar film), but with Brave totally bombing and strong hints that 3D is a hindrance now, I'm going "low" on it.

>The After-Dinner Mysteries was a very popular dramedy/mystery TV series in 2011 with impressive ratings. It's being released in the Summer by Toho/Fuji TV (same team behind many other hit movie drama adaptations).

>Oblivion, World War Z, Pacific Rim, and After Earth all seem very similar to me with more or less the same potential here. I'm giving the edge to Oblivion since it has Tom Cruise, and World War Z with it's good release date sometime August (hopefully before/during Obon Week) and Brad Pitt is also pretty popular. The negatives for Pacific Rim is that's it's opening day and date as the rest of the world and that's usually a bad thing in Japan unless it's a very well known property. The film also doesn't have any known names. And while Will Smith is popular in Japan, I've heard he's hardly in After Earth so it may open well, but is likely to have disappointing legs.

There's also bound to be another Japanese TV drama film coming out in the Summer or Fall that I'm unaware of or that hasn't been announced yet (movie announcements come late in the market) that could find a place in the Top 10.

I can't see World War Z making 3.5 billion. I have nothing to base that on apart from my hunch, so feel free to ignore me. :funny:

Top 10 Most Attended Films (2012)

01 Umizaru: Brave Hearts - 5,752,645 [Avg. ticket - ¥1,274 ($15.96)]
02 Thermae Romae - 4,714,309 [Avg. ticket - ¥1,268 ($15.92)]
03 Bayside Shakedown: The Final - 4,650,007 [Avg. ticket - ¥1,280 ($16.02)]
04 Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol - 4,239,485 [Avg. ticket - ¥1,269 ($15.98)]
05 Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo - 3,800,000 - 3,900,000 [Avg. ticket - ¥1,355 ($16.98)] (projection)
06 Pokemon Best Wishes: Kyurem Vs. The Sacred Swordsman: Keldeo - 3,431,674 [Avg. ticket - ¥1,052 ($13.18)]
07 The Wolf Children Ame and Yuki - 3,422,955 [Avg. ticket - ¥1,232 ($15.44)]
08 Doraemon: Nobita and the Island of Miracles - 3,348,346 [Avg. ticket - ¥1,081 ($13.54)]
09 Detective Conan: The Eleventh Striker - 2,746,079 [Avg. ticket - ¥1,194 ($14.97)]
10 Always: Sunset on Third Street '64 - 2,703,971 [Avg. ticket - ¥1,272 ($15.94)]

The only 3D release here is Always: Sunset on Third Street '64. If practically every 3D release in 2012 disappointing/bombing wasn't enough evidence that 3D is/has become a hindrance here, the fact that just one 3D release barely made the Top 10 admissions of 2012 should be.

I also notice, to your point, that that one 3D film did not even have the highest average price - in fact it was lower than 4 of the top 5, and the one it "beat" it was all of 4 yen higher. I assume this means any or all of the following is also true: 3D percentage was rather lower, No 3D premium worth mentioning existed, 3D premium was eliminated by heavy discounting, non 3D had heavy discounting to attract compensating revenue. So not only a hindrance, but not even providing the revenue justification 3D was supposed to provide.

I love me some schadenfreude in the morning. Thanks.

Two reasons its avg. ticket was normal:

First, it's 3D share was terribly low, 30% on opening weekend despite 80% of it's total screen count being 3D screens. It's avg. ticket prices kept decreasing every week, so that 3D share more than likely dipped under 20% before the end. And second, the Always series skews very old (I'm thinking something like 20-30% were 50+ opening weekend, I posted the breakdown last year) meaning it saw a lot of senior discount tickets.

Toei reports that One Piece Film Z exceeded 4 million admissions on Thursday, it's 20th day in release.

As of Wednesday, it had 3,931,200 admissions for a 19-day gross of ¥4.713 billion ($56 million). That means from just the past 3 days (Mon-Wed) it earned ¥481 million ($5.7 million) on 401,000 admissions, 9% stronger than its gross this past weekend.

Corpse, can you please explain to me the concept of Roadshow?

I am looking at some tickets on eBay for old movies and the tickets have full pictures of the movie on them. Do all tickets come like in Japan? even in their 10th week of normal release? That must be quite expensive for cinemas to produce. Or is it only Roadshow tickets?

I've seen posters and Roadshow seems to mean that the movie comes out a couple of days prior to the national release. Is that right? Is Roadshow a company? I don't really get it, and I don't understand the tickets thing.

Here is a link to one: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/OCTOPUSSY-MOO ... 5aec0f6f01

Roadshow doesn't mean the film is opening at certain locations before going nationwide. I think it has, or had, this definition in some other countries, but in Japan it simply means opening day. For films with Roadshow on their posters or tickets, though, the cast and crew go around to different cinemas for stage shows, meet and greets, etc.

Ticket stubs with artwork or pictures included are generally advance tickets only, but can also be available shortly after debuting as well. In addition to collecting the stubs, there are sometimes more you can do with them when taken to a cinema either opening weekend or for a limited time (like the first month).

For one example, if you buy a Pokemon ticket in advance, you can use the stub at the cinema to download an exclusive Pokemon to your handheld game.

Image

Here is a advance ticket stub from 2011's Pokemon film. If you bought a ticket to the film anytime between April 16 - August 31, you could download a Victini with an exclusive moveset when attending the film that was unavailable anywhere else.

The Kill Bill films, in particular Volume 1, did well in the market.

Kill Bill Vol. 1 - ¥2.50 billion ($22 million)
Kill Bill Vol. 2 - ¥1.10 billion ($10 million)

Inglorious Bastards earned approx. ¥650 million ($7 million).

Kill Bill Vol. 1 was likely helped by the presence of Chiaki Kuriyama (played Gogo Yubari), who was coming off of Battle Royale just a few years earlier.

I'd figure Kill Bill Vol. 1 would be his most successful film in the Japanese market. But nothing overtly successful.

Django will probably do around Basterds numbers no doubt?

Weekend Forecast


1 (1) One Piece Film Z (Toei) Week 4
2 (2) Les Miserables (Toho-Towa) Week 3
3 (3) Today, I Started Loving You (Toho) Week 5
4 (5) 007: Skyfall (Sony) Week 6
5 (4) The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Warner Bros.) Week 4
6 (7) Humanoid Monster, Bem (Toho) Week 4
7 (6) Blue Exorcist: The Movie (Toho) Week 2
8 (9) Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo (T-Joy) Week 8
9 (8) Kamen Rider X Kamen Rider Fourze & Wizard (Toei) Week 5
10 (10) The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (Kadokawa) Week 2

Now entering the unpredictable weekend.

In previous years, this weekend has seen it all. There has been big increases (50%+) across the board, scattered increases/decreases, and simply acting like any regular weekend throughout the year. One reason behind this could be because there are never any wide openers the first weekend of January.

The ranking though should more or less be pretty accurate and remain mostly unchanged.

One Piece Film Z is still well ahead of the competition that it's very unlikely to be bumped off by Les Miserables, and likewise, Les Miserables is ahead of the rest of the pack that it won't budge from it's second place ranking. The only major change in the ranking from last weekend will be if Humanoid Monster gets the big family boost that launches it into the Top 5, and the possibility of Frankenweenie re-appearing and knocking Breaking Dawn Part 2 out of the Top 10.

Projected Totals after Sunday (1/5):
One Piece Film Z - ¥5.2-5.4 billion ($63-65 million) after 4 weeks.
Evangelion 3.0 - ¥4.9-5.0 billion ($60-62 million) after 8 weeks.
007: Skyfall - ¥2.2-2.3 billion ($26-28 million) after 6 weeks.
Les Miserables - ¥1.6-1.7 billion ($19-21 million) after 3 weeks.
Today, I Started Loving You - ¥1.5-1.6 billion ($18-20 million) after 5 weeks.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - ¥1.2-1.3 billion ($14-16 million) after 4 weeks.
Kamen Rider X Kamen Rider Fourze & Wizard - ¥1-1.1 billion ($12-13 million) after 5 weeks.
Humanoid Monster, Bem - ¥1 billion ($12 million) after 4 weeks.

Even with The Hobbit bombing, this year has turned out to be a very strong New Year season thanks to huge performances by One Piece and Eva 3.0, and notable runs so far from Skyfall (close now to becoming the highest grossing Bond film ever), Les Mis, and Today.

Biggest Film Franchises in Japan (Revenue)

Harry Potter :: ¥96.57 billion ($903 million) [8 Films]
Pokemon :: ¥68.49 billion ($660 million) [15 Films]
Doraemon :: ¥67.76 billion ($628 million est.) [32 Films]
Detective Conan :: ¥41.34 billion ($430 million) [16 Films]
Bayside Shakedown :: ¥40.71 billion ($412 million) [4 Films]
Star Wars :: ¥40.04 billion ($323 million est.) [6 Films]
Pirates of the Caribbean :: ¥36.59 billion ($360 million) [4 Films]
Jurassic Park :: ¥27.48 billion ($253 million est.) [3 Films]
The Lord of the Rings :: ¥27.29 billion ($236 million) [3 Films]
The Matrix :: ¥26.40 billion ($231 million est.) [3 Films]
Umizaru :: ¥24.12 billion ($262 million) [4 Films]

Updated with the final totals for this year's Pokemon, Doraemon, Detective Conan, Umizaru, and Bayside Shakedown films.

Looking ahead,

>Pokemon has a new film coming out this July.
>Doraemon and Detective Conan also have new films coming out this Spring (the holy trio of Pokemon, Doraemon, and Detective Conan have new films released annually every March, April, and July).
>Bayside Shakedown is finished with the fourth film being the final entry.
>Star Wars will soon see a series of sequels released.
>Pirates of the Caribbean is suppose to have a new film coming out in 2014/2015.
>Umizaru might have one, maybe two, more film left before they'd have to create their own original storylines.

And the Kamen Rider franchise will eventually earn enough to rank in a year or two with it now releasing 3 films a year and up to... 46..47 total I think.

Biggest Film Franchises in Japan (Admissions)

Godzilla :: 99.25 million [28 Films]
Doraemon :: 97.49 million [32 Films]
Harry Potter :: 76.9 million est. [8 Films]
Pokemon :: 67.83 million [15 Films]
Detective Conan :: 34.31 million [16 Films]
Star Wars :: 30.8 million est. [6 Films]
Bayside Shakedown :: 30.02 million [4 Films]
Pirates of the Caribbean :: 27.11 million [4 Films]
The Lord of the Rings :: 20.22 million [3 Films]
Jurassic Park :: 20.1 million est. [3 Films]
The Matrix :: 18.1 million est. [3 Films]
Umizaru :: 17.65 million [4 Films]

If anyone is wondering why Godzilla is 1st here but not even on the Revenue list its because the earlier Godzilla films from the 50's and 60's were massive and much bigger than latter ones and ticket prices back then cost just ¥60 compared to the past two decades ~¥1,250 avg. The first Godzilla did over 12 million admissions in 1954 but grossed just ¥760 million, a gross films since the 90's have been able to reach with a mere 500,000 admissions.

The same is mostly true for Doraemon as well. While it hasn't lost any popularity since the 70's/80's (this past year's film was the biggest to date in gross and admissions), tickets then were only ~¥400-500 for the first several installments. The franchise should cross the 100 million uber-milestone this year.

All the other movie franchises began when avg. ticket prices were reaching ¥1,000 (early 80's) and then stabilizing at ~¥1,250 since 1993.

Weekend Estimates


1 (2) Les Miserables (Toho-Towa) ¥267 million ($3.1 million), +4%,Week 3
2 (1) One Piece Film Z (Toei) ¥265 million ($3.1 million), -41%, Week 4
3 (4) The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Warner Bros.) ¥105 million ($1.2 million), +2%, Week 4
4 (5) 007: Skyfall (Sony) ¥98 million ($1.1 million), -3%, Week 6
5 (7) Humanoid Monster, Bem (Toho) ¥79 million ($925,000), -6%, Week 4
6 (3) Today, I Started Loving You (Toho) ¥69 million ($800,000), -39%, Week 5
7 (6) Blue Exorcist: The Movie (Toho) ¥63 million ($750,000), -30%, Week 2
8 (8) Kamen Rider X Kamen Rider Fourze & Wizard (Toei) ¥62 million ($725,000), -9%, Week 5
9 (10) The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (Kadokawa) ¥56 million ($650,000), -18%, Week 2
10 (9) Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo (T-Joy) ¥49 million ($575,000), -27%, Week 8

I caution these estimates. Due to Holidays, estimates haven't been available for three weeks meaning that comparisons to this weekend are being used from the fourth weekend of December. But the increases/decreases are compared to last weekend. A little confusing, I know, but yay estimates are finally back!

This weekend proved to be as unpredictable as ever based on these estimates with scattered small increases and regular decreases.

Amazingly, Les Miserables dropped just 9% at the usual locations compared to it's opening weekend, meaning it's third is estimated to be higher than it's second. It is in a dead heat with One Piece Film Z for the weekend crown with One Piece's primary fan base having seen it by now. It's very possible we see a split this weekend, too, with One Piece winning in admissions and Les Mis winning in gross.

Speaking of One Piece Film Z, it was just reported earlier that the film achieved ¥5.287 billion ($62 million) on Saturday, making it Toei's highest grossing film since 2000. With Sunday still unaccounted for, it's probably at ¥5.4 billion ($64 million) after just four weeks. Thanks to it breaking out more than expected, this New Year season will be up from last year. It'll begin to drop rather quickly now that New Year is over (already evident in this weekends drop), though ¥6-6.5 billion ($70-75 million) is still happening.

The Hobbit, Skyfall, and Humanoid Monster all did very well over the weekend.

Les Miserables beat One Piece Film Z at Toho locations (the largest cinema chain), but staying in second at all the other locations probably gives One Piece it's fourth consecutive week on top.

Humanoid Monster played strongly everywhere this weekend, recovering nicely from it's slow start.

The Hobbit resurfaces after disappearing from every chain except Toho locations last week. This is a clear indicator that it's skewing towards families and children (G rating in Japan).

One Piece Film Z claims it's fourth-consecutive week on top surpassing an incredible 4.5 million admissions and ¥5.4 billion ($64 million). It has become the highest grossing December release for any local film, easily beating Yamato's ¥5.09 billion total from 2005, and has already outgrossed it's predecessor, Strong World, by 12% after just four weeks.

Les Miserables saw a strong 14% increase over last weekend earning ¥287,095,000 ($3.4 million) on 220,519 admissions (only down 3% compared to it's opening weekend) to bring it's total above ¥2 billion ($24 million) after three weeks. It's quickly closing in on Skyfall to become Hollywood's biggest film so far this year (2013). I think Japan will be it's strongest market overseas as it's on track for ¥3 billion+ ($40 million+).

007: Skyfall remained strong in it's sixth weekend dropping only 6% compared to last weekend.

Humanoid Monster, Bem held very well decreasing just 12% from last weekend benefiting from families coming out for New Year, as did The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey which dipped a mere 3%.

Making there way back into the Top 10 was Ooku: The Inner Chambers 2 increasing an excellent 24%, and Frankenweenie having decreased a solid 16%.

Out of the Top 10 was Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo in it's eighth week (though it might still be in the Top 10 in revenue), and Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 having only spent a single week in the Top 10 setting a franchise worst.
