Post Re: Japan Box Office: 2014 Predictions
Weekend (and overall) numbers are still unavailable due to New Year, so in the meantime, here are the predictions for 2014:

Top Films of 2014 [PREDICTIONS]

Japanese
¥7.0-8.0 billion ($70-80 million) - Marnie's Memories (Toho) July
¥5.0-6.0 billion ($50-60 million) - The Eternal Zero (Toho) Dec.
¥4.0-5.0 billion ($40-50 million) - Thermae Romae II (Toho) Apr.
¥4.0-4.5 billion ($40-45 million) - Lupin III Vs. Detective Conan (Toho) Dec.
¥3.5-4.0 billion ($35-40 million) - Pokemon: The Cocoon of Destruction (Toho) July
¥3.5-4.0 billion ($35-40 million) - Doraemon: New Nobita's Great Demon - Peko and the Exploration Party of Five (Toho) Mar.
¥3.0-3.5 billion ($30-35 million) - Stand By Me, Doraemon (Toho) Aug.
¥3.0-3.5 billion ($30-35 million) - Detective Conan: The Sniper from Another Dimension (Toho) Apr.
¥2.5-3.0 billion ($25-30 million) - All-Round Appraiser Q: Mona Lisa’s Eye (Toho) May
¥2.5-3.0 billion ($25-30 million) - Rurouni Kenshin: The Great Kyoto Fire Arc (Warner Bros.) Aug.
¥2.5-3.0 billion ($25-30 million) - Rurouni Kenshin: The End of a Legend Arc (Warner Bros.) Sept.
¥2.5-3.0 billion ($25-30 million) - Lupin III (Toho) Aug.
¥2.5-3.0 billion ($25-30 million) - Partners the Movie 3 (Toei) Apr.


Imported
¥3.5-4.0 billion ($35-40 million) - Resident Evil VI (Sony) Sept.
¥3.5-4.0 billion ($35-40 million) - Transformers: Age of Extinction (Paramount) Aug.
¥3.0-4.0 billion ($30-40 million) - Godzilla (Toho) July
¥3.0-3.5 billion ($30-35 million) - The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (Sony) Apr.
¥2.5-3.0 billion ($25-30 million) - Frozen (Disney) Mar.
¥2.5-3.0 billion ($25-30 million) - Gravity (Warner Bros.) Dec.
¥2.5-3.0 billion ($25-30 million) - Maleficent (Disney) Apr.


I don't think anything this year will approach the ¥10 billion ($100 million) mark. The Wind Rises was the first film to exceed the milestone in 3 years (5 years for a 2D release), and I don't think anything will achieve it again for a few years.

Japan looks to have more ¥3-4 billion ($30-40 million) tier films than last year (helped by the fact of two Doraemon and two Rurouni Kenshin titles), so that's a plus. And there always seems to be one film that greatly exceeds expectations (2011's Confessions, 2012's A Ghost of a Chance, 2013's Like Father, Like Son), too.

Hollywood unfortunately has a... really bad schedule. There isn't a single major release (Harry Potter, Pirates, Star Wars, Pixar), so they're going to be in for a very rough year. And with 3D shares way down compared to 2010-2012, it's doubtful either Resident Evil or Transformers will match their last entries. Hopefully Frozen, or maybe Godzilla can manage to breakout though.

2013's Top 5 Biggest Losers

Image
1. *Gatchaman*
>Most-expensive local production of all-time by a huge margin according to reports of a budget of ¥8 billion ($80 million)!
>Final gross hasn't been released, but it's believed to be below ¥500 million ($5 million) making it the biggest financial failure in... probably ever considering budgets for domestic films rarely exceed ¥1 billion, and the previous record was just over ¥3 billion (Ponyo)


Image
2. *The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey*
>86% decline in gross compared to Return of the King, and 82% and 79% drops from Fellowship of the Ring and Two Towers... Alrighty then.
>Ranked outside the Top 35 films of 2013. Let's hope moving the franchise back to its original Spring release can help future films recover.


Image
3. *Space Captain Harlock*
>Another absurdly record budget bust of a film with a rumored budget of ¥5-6 billion ($50-60 million)!
>The final gross hasn't been released yet, either, but tracking ended just over ¥500 million ($5 million). If not for Gatchaman, it would have been one of (if not the) biggest domestic bomb ever.


Image
4. *Toho's original live-action releases*
>Many of Toho's original live-action films failed to find an audience at the box-office this year despite fine release dates and capable filmmakers and cast member. Real, Hospitality Department, and Beyond the Memories fared the worst with grosses well below the ¥1 billion ($10 million) mark.

Image
5. *After Earth*
>Prime Summer release spot, Will Smith, interesting... plot/setting, and it still earned less than ¥1 billion ($8/9 million) and didn't come near 1 million admissions. I would say it's one of Hollywood's worst high-profile performers in recent years, but 47 Ronin just happened making After Earth's performance actually look somewhat decent.

Dishonorable Mention:
*Pacific Rim*
>Grossed a disappointing ¥1.5 billion ($15 million) and barely cracked 1 million admissions despite being released during one of biggest weeks of the year (Obon).

2013's Top 5 Biggest Winners
Spoiler: show
Image
1. *Les Miserables*
>Highest-grossing Musical of all-time.
>2nd Highest-grossing film of all-time to never rank #1 (behind Curse of the Black Pearl)
>11-Consecutive weeks in the Top 5.
>13-Consecutive weeks in the Top 10.
>3-Consecutive weekend increases (without expansion).
>Only the 4th film since 1998 to achieve a multiplier over 20 (and without expanding), joining Spirited Away, Avatar, and Departures.


Image
2. *Japanese Anime Films*
Where to begin here! Animated films completely dominated 2013.

>The Wind Rises
>First film in 3 years to gross over ¥10 billion; first 2D film in 5 years to gross over ¥10 billion.
>8-Consecutive weeks at #1.
>14-Consecutive weeks in the Top 10.
>Still in release and could challenge the Top 10 Films of All-Time with success at the Oscars.

>One Piece Film Z
>Broke the opening weekend admissions record for a domestic film, and delivered the biggest opening weekend in 5 years.
>Broke the 2-day opening weekend PSA record.
>Highest-grossing 'One Piece' film of all-time.

>Doraemon (34): Nobita's Secret Gadget Museum
>Biggest opening weekend for a 'Doraemon' film, and the Highest-grossing, Most-attended, 'Doraemon' film of all-time.
>The 'Doraemon' franchise also became the most attended movie franchise of all-time, with over 102 million admissions.

>Detective Conan (17): The Private Eye in the Distant Sea
>Biggest opening weekend for a 'Detective Conan' film, and the Highest-grossing, Most-attended, 'Detective Conan' film of all-time.

Image
3. *Ted*
>Highest-grossing R15+ Comedy of all-time.
>Highest-grossing Imported Comedy since 'Home Alone 2'.
>Achieved a multiplier over 12 with only a couple small expansions and minimal Holiday support.


Image
4. *Aniplex Releases*
From Steins Gate to Anohana, every Aniplex release this year performed exceptionally well in only limited release (often fewer than 50 screens). Aniplex has never had a better year, and despite playing on 1/10th of the screens of Hollywood blockbusters or big-budget Domestic films, they were able to match or even beat a number of them.

Image
5. *Like Father, Like Son*
>Distributor Gaga's Highest-grossing domestic film of all-time.
>Achieved a multiplier over 10 outside of Summer or Holidays.
>Earned a Top 10 spot (#10) in 2013, a very difficult achievement for an original film from an independent distributor.


-Honorable Mention:
*Monsters University*
>4th Highest-grossing, and 4th Most-attended Pixar film of all-time.
>Most-attended imported-film in 3 years.

Captain Harlock opened yesterday in Italy and did €0.669M.

So Escape Plan comes out next Friday for a 3-day weekend. Any news on how it might do?

Post Re: Japan Box Office: 2014 Predictions
My prediction is a 3-day opening of maybe ¥100 million ($1 million) and a total of around ¥500 million ($5 million). But the theater count hasn't been released yet, so it's hard to say at this point.

As for this weekend, it's the New Year weekend so there should be weekend increases for probably every film (Hunter X Hunter possibly being the exception). As to what everything is increasing from, it's unknown since last weekends numbers still haven't been released.

Actual figures stopped being reported after December 23rd (Emperor's Birthday), so it's a bit of a mystery how everything has been doing the past 11 days. And when updated numbers are released on Monday morning, it'll very interesting to see how strong this New Year really was. The Eternal Zero looked to be doing huge numbers through the week (even the Prime Minister saw it!), and Lupin III Vs Detective Conan and The Tale of Princess Kaguya were also doing very well.

Well that's not too bad, and would mean that Japan is its 4th biggest market behind China, the USA, and Russia.

01. ¥4.90 billion ($40.2 million) - Dinosaur (2001)
02. ¥4.05 billion ($37.2 million est.) - Aladdin (1993)
03. ¥3.20 billion ($31.7 million est.) - The Lion King (1994)

16. ¥1.10 billion ($9.3 million est.) - Hercules (1997)
¥1 billion+

Peter Pan 2's success here makes me wonder if the first film was a major hit at the box-office, and/or a big success on home video.

Upcoming:
Frozen (March 14, 2014)

Here you go, Algren.

Sylvester Stallone's Top Grossing Films (1980-)
Image

01. ¥6.40 billion ($62.1 million) - Cliffhanger (1994)
02. ¥4.75 billion ($30.5 million) - Rocky IV (1986)
03. ¥3.95 billion ($17.5 million) - Rambo: First Blood Part II (1985)
04. ¥3.80 billion ($28.8 million) - Rambo III (1988)
05. ¥2.90 billion ($12.9 million) - Cobra (1986)
06. ¥2.70 billion ($10.4 million) - Rocky III (1982)
07. ¥1.95 billion ($13.1 million) - Over the Top (1987)
08. ¥1.90 billion ($8.1 million) - Rambo (1983)
09. ¥1.70 billion ($12.7 million) - Rocky V (1991)
10. ¥1.45 billion ($12.9 million) - Spy Kids 3D: Game Over (2003)
11. ¥1.45 billion ($11.9 million) - Driven (2001)

Since most of these are from the 1980s, they're estimates. Especially for Rocky IV and Cobra. The exchange rate saw major shifts the second half of 86, and both of their runs took place in the Summer/Fall.

Cliffhanger was quite the blockbuster (#1 film of 1994), but it was also the last film that Stallone was really able to carry in the market, too.

Thanks Corpse. That is really, really awesome. Cliffhanger made more money than every superhero movie released in Japan that isn't a Spider-man movie (and more than EVERY superhero movie in USD). Incredible.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Weekend Ranking / Charts Updating
Finally, some numbers are available!

Weekend Ranking [01/04-05]
(New Year 2014)


01 (01) The Eternal Zero (Toho) Week 3
02 (02) Lupin III Vs. Detective Conan (Toho) Week 5
03 (04) Gravity (Warner Bros.) Week 4
04 (06) Planes (Disney) Week 3
05 (05) The Liar and His Lover (Toho) Week 4
06 (03) Hunter X Hunter: The Final Mission (Toho) Week 2
07 (09) The Tale of Princess Kaguya (Toho) Week 7
08 (07) Kamen Rider X Kamen Rider Gaim & Wizard (Toei) Week 4
09 (08) Walking with Dinosaurs (Fox) Week 3
10 (14) Ask This of Riku (Toei) Week 5
11 (12) A Tale of Samurai Cooking (Shochiku) Week 4
12 (10) The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (Kadokawa) Week 2

>The Eternal Zero's numbers have been some of the most-anticipated in a long time over the past couple weeks with holidays delaying everything. Ticket sales all week long appeared incredibly impressive, and they certainly were:

Over the New Year weekend, the film saw a 46% third weekend increase and grossed ¥531,728,400 ($5.2 million) and 414,397 admissions. Not only is the 46% third weekend increase huge, but it's down just 2% compared to its opening weekend! After 16-days, the film has earned ¥3,202,870,000 ($30.9 million) and 2,580,000 admissions (a multiplier of 6 after just three weeks). It is well on track to exceed ¥5 billion ($50 million), and could potentially end up with over ¥6 billion ($60 million+).

The last original live-action film to gross over ¥6 billion was Avatar.

>Lupin III Vs. Detective Conan was also doing big numbers over the holidays, and now has a 30-day total of ¥3,533,730,000 ($34.1 million) and 2,990,000 admissions. It should exceed the ¥4 billion ($40 million) milestone in a little over a week and ultimately finish with ¥4.5 billion ($45 million) or slightly higher.

>Gravity is the highlight of Hollywood's New Year in Japan, seeing a 23% increase and rising to 3rd place. The new total is now ¥2,079,400,000 ($20.0 million) and will be aiming for ¥3 billion+ ($30 million+) with some help from its likely success at the Golden Globes or even the Oscars late in its run.

>Ask This of Riku saw a massive 124% increase and re-enters the Top 10 after falling out two weeks ago

>The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is receiving even worse reviews than the first film, barely debuted in the Top 10 and now out of the Top 10, and is currently down nearly 50% from it's predecessor after two weeks...

Toho Cinemas Saturday Admissions (01/11)

27,696 - The Eternal Zero (Week 4)
24,614 - Trick: The Last Stage (NEW)
10,686 - The Escape Plan (NEW)

5,885 - Lupin III Vs. Detective Conan (Week 6)
5,556 - The Liar and His Lover (Week 5)
5,105 [93% 3D] - Gravity (Week 5)
5,102 - Judge! (NEW)
2,702 - Hunter X Hunter: The Last Mission (Week 3)
2,565 - Planes (Week 4)
2,116 - The Tale of Princess Kaguya (Week 8)
1,897 - Magi Madoka Magica: The Rebellion Story (Week 12)
1,465 - The Best Offer (Week 5)
1,404 - Kamen Rider X Kamen Rider Giam & Wizard (Week 5)
1,368 - HKT48 Live! Prefecture Tour (NEW)
1,298 - Wake Up, Girls! (NEW)

1,283 - SPEC: Close - Incarnation Part 2 (Week 7)
1,205 - The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (Week 3)
1,203 - Walking with Dinosaurs (Week 4)
935 - Insidious: Chapter 2 (NEW)
777 - Producers' Showcase: Mayerling (SPECIAL SCREENINGS)
583 - With Mugiko (Week 4)
577 - The Kiyosu Conference (Week 9)
452 - Ask This of Riku (Week 6)
439 - A Tale of Samurai Cooking (Week 5)
397 - The Terminator (SPECIAL SCREENINGS)
384 - Dangerous Liaisons (NEW)
345 - SPEC: Close - Incarnation Part 1 (Week 11)

Good for Trick 4. It's about 3/4 of the admissions on Saturday as the recent SPEC film, which puts it on track for 275-300,000 admissions for the weekend and a gross near ¥350 million ($3.4 million). And since Toho Cinemas represents about 20% of the nation's theaters, it could still debut on top bumping The Eternal Zero out of first place, though it's unlikely.

Also quite solid for The Escape Plan. As long as it has a healthy Sunday, it might manage 100,000 admissions for ¥120/130 million ($1.1/1.2 million) for the weekend. This wouldn't include any earnings from Friday, either, so maybe a ¥150 million ($1.4 million) 3-day is doable. Not-too shabby.

Most of the kid/family films saw some serious drops compared to last Saturday.

The Terminator? Is that the 1984 original?

And good for Escape Plan. It needs around $5m-$6m total to be considered great.

Yeah. Sometimes classic or older films play for a weekend. Since The Escape Plan just opened and Schwarzenegger was promoting it last month in Tokyo, I guess they decided to screen his signature role/film.

Very nice, but only 397 admissions. I guess this is one showing, at one cinema. I love screenings like this. They don't happen at all in China, but in the UK, some older/indie cinemas would bring old classics back and I liked that a lot.

It had 49 showings on Saturday. I don't know how many theaters that would have been, but probably about 10/11 assuming one screen each with 4/5 showings per day.

I'll start posting how many showings each film had when I post Toho's admissions (weekend admissions coming up soon).
