Damn. I hope it does well when it comes out. It is performing very nicely in other Asian countries.

Ted coming first in Toho is a very good sign though Pi is ahead of it in majority of the other chains. I guess Pi will win the weekend eventually though come out lower on admissions from both Ted and Strawberry.

Warner Bros. Release Schedule 2013

Berserk Golden Age Arc III: Descent (02/01)
A Certain Magical Index (02/23)
Cloud Atlas (03/15)
Jack the Giant Slayer (3/22)
Straw Shield (04/26)
Gangster Squad (05/03)
The Great Gatsby (06/14)
Gintama: The Movie 2 (Early Summer)
Man of Steel (Summer)
Pacific Rim (Summer)
Unforgiven (09/13)
Black Butler: The Movie (Late 2013)
Seventh Son (Late 2013)
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (12/13)

Warner Bros. will no longer be an exhibitor in Japan come March and will begin focusing more on the distribution of local films in the market. Aeon Group bought Warner's 50% share in the Warner Mycal cinema chain late last year.

Looking at Warner Bros. slate for this year, they're releasing an increased number of local films as expected. Of those, Straw Shield should do decently over Golden Week, Gintama will be a success with it's hardcore fanbase, Unforgiven (starring Ken Watanabe and a remake of the 1992 Clint Eastwood film) has potential, and Black Butler has it's fanbase that should provide solid results.

Distributing local films has proven very good for Warner Bros. in recent years, and just last year Rurouni Kenshin was their #1 film easily outgrossing their three biggest imported releases: Dark Shadows, Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows and The Dark Knight Rises.

2013 Box Office Charts
Updated as of Sunday, 01/27

Revenue :: Film :: Admissions :: Days in Release :: Distributor

¥10 billion Uber-Blockbuster Status (US ≈$500 million film)
¥8 billion (US ≈$400 million film)
>¥6.49 billion ($74.08 million) :: One Piece Film Z :: 5.39 million :: 44 :: Toei
¥6 billion (US ≈$300 million film)
>¥5.14 billion ($63.23 million) :: Evangelion 3.0: You Can (Not) Redo :: 3.72 million :: 72 :: T-Joy
¥5 billion Blockbuster Milestone (US ≈ $250 million film)
¥4 billion (US ≈$200 million film)
>¥3.77 billion ($43.02 million) :: Les Miserables :: 2.89 million :: 38 :: Toho-Towa
¥3 billion Box Office Hit (US ≈$150 million film)
>¥2.79 billion ($32.02 million) :: 007: Skyfall :: 2.19 million :: 58 :: Sony
¥2 billion (US ≈$100 million film)
>¥1.73 billion ($19.97 million) :: Today, I Started Loving You :: 1.43 million :: 51 :: Toho
>¥1.63 billion ($18.81 million) :: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey :: 1.14 million :: 45 :: Warner Bros.
>¥1.14 billion ($13.25 million) :: Kamen Rider X Kamen Rider Fourze & Wizard :: 1.03 million :: Tracking Ends :: Toei

>¥1.06 billion ($12.13 million) :: Ted :: 0.73 million :: 10 :: Toho-Towa
¥1 billion Commercial Success (US ≈$50 million film)

-One Piece is still going strong after seven weeks. The only animated films that have earned more than it now are 6 Studio Ghibli films, 3 Pixar films, and 1 Pokemon film.
-Les Miserables draws closer to ¥4 billion and the ¥4.2 billion mark needed to become the highest grossing musical of all-time. That record will be claimed quite soon as the film is eyeing the ¥5 billion milestone.
-Skyfall lost a lot of screens this past weekend and doesn't have much left in it. However, it has easily surpassed the box office of every other Bond film ever released.
-Ted is already over ¥1 billion by more than tripling it's opening weekend. It may just have what it takes to reach ¥3 billion which is totally crazy and unprecedented for an imported-comedy (R-rated no less).

Depending on how Ted does over the next couple weeks, it may earn its place on this weekly update.

And so I won't have to make an additional post, Thermae Romae, the film you see above that finished #2 at the Box Office in 2012, just had it's sequel announced earlier today with a release set for Golden Week (late April) of 2014.

Post Re: Japan Box Office (2013) Yearly Statistics Up
China finally overtook Japan in 2012, but they still had an excellent year and are comfortably in second place internationally. Anyone know how long Japan held the title for top international market? Unless the UK was really, really big in the 80s or 90s, I guess Japan was #1 since the 50s or 60s?

Japanese films were so strong last year. They alone earned ($1.53 billion) more than some major markets like Australia ($1.07 billion) and Russia ($1.33 billion). And 983 films released? That is such a large increase over recent years with 700/800 films released.

7 (-) Yellow Elephant (Showgate) ¥75 million ($840,000) NEW!
8 (6) One Piece Film Z (Toei) ¥70 million ($790,000) Week 8
9 (-) Documentary of AKB48: No Flower Without Rain (Toho Video Division) ¥65 million ($730,000) NEW!
10 (-) Berserk Golden Age Arc III: Descent (Warner Bros.) ¥35 million ($395,000) NEW!


Should be a close contest for the #1 spot between Ted's third weekend and Jack Reacher's debut. I gave Ted the edge since it has been having a ridiculous run so far, and Jack Reacher opened on Friday which will deflate the weekend a tad.

I may have went too conservative on Yellow Elephant. Aoi Miyazaki is easily one of the most popular actresses right now, so I wouldn't be surprised if it hit ¥100 million.

Projected Total (¥1 billion+) After Sunday
One Piece Film Z: ¥6.6 billion ($76 million) after eight weeks.
Les Miserables: ¥4.1 billion ($47 million) after seven weeks.
Ted: ¥1.5 billion ($17 million) after three weeks.
Tokyo Family: ¥1.0 billion ($12 million) after three weeks.

Outside the Top 10:
Evangelion 3.0: ¥5.2 billion ($63 million) after twelve weeks.
Skyfall: ¥2.8 billion ($32 million) after ten weeks.
Today, I Started Loving You: ¥1.8 billion ($21 million) after nine weeks.
The Hobbit: ¥1.7 billion ($19 million) after eight weeks.
Hunter X Hinter: ¥1.1 billion ($13 million) after four weeks.

China finally overtook Japan in 2012, but they still had an excellent year and are comfortably in second place internationally. Anyone know how long Japan held the title for top international market? Unless the UK was really, really big in the 80s or 90s, I guess Japan was #1 since the 50s or 60s?


I have no source at all other than just a hunch, but I'd imagine that the UK might have been the second biggest market during one or more years of the 60s (Julie Andrews/Bond-mania?). Is there a website available that ranks the foreign markets by total revenue?

Post Re: Japan Box Office (2013) Weekend Forecast
If it was any year, it would have to be mid-late 60s or perhaps early 70s.

Admissions were insane in Japan from 1955-1962. Yearly admissions were exceeding 800 million during this time frame, and 1957-1960 even broke 1 billion admissions (wtf). They then began to slow between 1963-1965 when ticket prices doubled/tripled (still doing 300-400 million admissions a year, however), and after steadily decreasing from 1966-1971 (200-300 million admissions) from more ticket price spikes, admissions became stagnant in 1972 (ticket prices now nearly 10x higher than the previous decade) hovering between 130-180 million each year ever since.

Saturday Estimates


Film / Sat. Estimate / % Change from last Sat. / Week in Release
1 Ted (Toho-Towa) ¥135 million ($1.5 million), -18%, Week 3
2 Life of Pi (20th Century Fox) ¥113 million ($1.3 million), -31%, Week 2
3 Jack Reacher (Paramount) ¥109 million ($1.3 million), 0, NEW! [321 Theaters]
4 Strawberry Night (Toho) ¥108 million ($1.3 million), -31%, Week 2
5 Les Miserables (Toho-Towa) ¥78 million ($880,000), -2%, Week 7
6 Yellow Elephant (Showgate) ¥47 million ($525,000), 0, NEW! [235 Theaters]
7 Tokyo Family (Shochiku) ¥46 million ($515,000), -34%, Week 3
8 One Piece Film Z (Toei) ¥30 million ($340,000), -42%, Week 8
9 Documentary of AKB48: No Flowers Without Rain (Toho Video Division) ¥26 million ($295,000), 0, NEW! [119 Theaters]
10 Berserk Golden Age Arc III: Descent (Warner Bros.) ¥19 million ($215,000), 0, NEW! [93 Theaters]


Ted will claim it's third-consecutive week on top based on these figures.

As for second place, it's a three-way battle between Jack Reacher, Life of Pi and Strawberry Night.

Les Mis dropped 25/26% the past two weekends, and while very impressive, those were the film's biggest drops to date, but it is now back to it's incredible run and should see a sub-10% drop this weekend or maybe it'll even increase if Sunday is strong enough. By comparison, it's 7th Saturday is estimated to be higher than it's 6th Friday in the US.

Yellow Elephant is doing pretty well, while the other two openers AKB48 and Berserk III are doing expected numbers. I want to note that Berserk III got an R-18 rating (the highest), which is really rare for any film in the market much less an animated release.

Since this year's documentary of AKB48 opened this weekend (yeah, fourth annual doc. on the group.. you can say they're popular), here is the mini-pv of their song "Sugar Rush" from the Wreck-It-Ralph film. The song was featured before the first Sugar Rush race in the movie:



Wreck-It-Ralph (titled Sugar Rush in Japan) opens in March.

Ted is still a beast .

Solid second weekend holds for Life of Pi and Strawberry Night.

Jack Reacher could have done a bit better, but the results are enough to achieve the ¥1 billion ($12 million) milestone at the least. The estimate would be about 86% of Valkyrie's opening weekend. The 3-day total should be close to ¥250 million ($3 million).

Audiences are still in love with Les Mis in it's seventh weekend, and still in the Top 5. If it didn't become the highest grossing musical of all-time this weekend, it definitely will before Wednesday.

Yellow Elephant performed pretty well, selling approx. 22% more tickets than Showgate's New Shoes last fall.

The Documentary of AKB48 only did 2/3 of the admissions of last year's film. I'm sure the films cost next to nothing to release, so I'm sure we'll see another next year. The "scandal/controversy" surrounding the YouTube video of one member's apology after being fired for having a boyfriend (against the bands rules) could have been a factor, too.

Berserk III did alright for itself and opened higher than it's predecessor, but still way less than the first film. This one though was hit with the rare R-18+ rating, so it's a great accomplishment to even rank in the Top 10. To put the rating into comparison, Django Unchained which will open next month is "only" rated R-15. R-18 ratings are pretty much the NC-17 rating in Japan.

It'll break $50 million next weekend.

And as long as the yen doesn't get too strong (currently at a 2.5 year high), it'll reach $60 million+. It will still have Anne Hathaway's Oscar win and any other techs it may pick up to get it there.

Could it get to $70 milion with some luck and become the biggest English-language film since Harry Potter 7.2?

It would need a big night at the Academy Awards, either somehow winning the most awards of the night or pulling off some major upsets (Actor perhaps), for that to happen.

It's at approx. ¥4.1 billion ($47 million) now. At it's current pace, I see it finishing with ~¥5.1/5.2 billion ($57/58 million). If it does better than expected at the Academy Awards, it could crack $60 million.

2 Strawberry Night (Toho) Week 2
3 Life of Pi (Fox) Week 2

Jack Reacher did very well at all the locations except for Toho. And unfortunately for it, Toho is the largest chain. Ted is playing so strong at Toho (almost exclusively) that I still don't think Jack Reacher will rank 1st despite ranking 1st everywhere else. Though I do think Jack Reacher will debut in 2nd place, ahead of it's estimate earlier.
