Post Re: Japan Box Office (2013) Charts Updated
12/28-29
Weekend Forecast


1 One Piece Film Z (Toei) Week 3
2 Les Miserables (Toho-Towa) Week 2
3 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (Warner Bros.) Week 3
4 Today, I Started Loving You (Toho) Week 4
5 007: Skyfall (Sony) Week 5
6 Blue Exorcist: The Movie (Toho) NEW!
7 Humanoid Monster, Bem (Toho) Week 3
8 The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 (Kadokawa Pictures) NEW!
9 Ooku: The Inner Chambers 2 (Asmik Ace/Shochiku) Week 2
10 Kamen Rider X Kamen Rider Fourze & Wizard (Toei) Week 4

Unfortunately full weekend figures from last week still aren't available so I can't really forecast half of the Top 10. So... I'll just predict the openers and post the what the estimated totals should be after this weekend for films above ¥1 billion.

Blue Exorcist: The Movie is opening at 183 locations via Toho and will probably be aiming for ¥100 million ($1.2 million) this weekend. The manga has gained in popularity over the past year with sales of each volume since the fifth exceeding 750,000. This puts it around Bleach's level right now (a little higher actually), so a box office performance may be similar.

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 is opening at just 147 locations and will struggle to reach ¥100 million for the weekend. It's likely to open between ¥75-90 million ($1 million), on par with the previous two entries.

[Projected Totals after Sunday, ¥1 billion+]
One Piece Film Z - ¥4.2 billion ($51 million) after 16 days.
007: Skyfall - ¥2.1 billion ($26 million) after 30 days.
Today, I Started Loving You - ¥1.3 billion ($16 million) after 23 days.
Les Miserables - ¥1.1 billion ($14 million) after 10 days.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - ¥1.0 billion ($12 million) after 17 days.

Post Re: Japan Box Office (2013) 12/28-29, Weekend Forecast
Box Office updates are still coming in at an incredibly slow rate due to New Year so it'll probably a few more days before weekend figures are released again (still waiting for last weekend, too).

In the meantime, projections for the beginning of the 2013 Box Office year:

First Third of the Year Projections (12/1-3/30)

¥7 billion ($84 million)↓
-One Piece Film Z
¥6 billion ($72 million)↨
-
¥5 billion ($60 million)↨
-
¥4 billion ($48 million)↨
-A Good Day to Die Hard
-Doraemon: Nobita's Secret Gadget Museum
-Les Miserables
¥3 billion ($36 million)↨
-007: Skyfall
-Dragonball Z: Battle of Gods
-Hunter X Hunter: Phantom Rouge
-Oz: The Great and Powerful
-Platinum Data
-Strawberry Night
¥2 billion ($24 million)↨
-Brain Man
-Cloud Atlas
-Humanoid Monster, Bem
-Jack and the Giant Slayer
-Jack Reacher
-Kamen Rider X Kamen Rider Fourze & Wizard
-Life of Pi
-Pretty Cure All Stars New Stage 2: Friend of the Heart
-Ted
-The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
-Today, I Started Loving You
-Tokyo Family
-Wreck-It-Ralph
¥1 billion ($12 million)↑

I'm seeing 23 films exceeding ¥1 billion in this time frame compared to last year's 20 films. There are a couple iffy ones (3D releases) like Cloud Atlas and Jack and the Giant Slayer, and if Oz: The Great and Powerful is given too many 3D screens it could potentially bomb/disappoint (Tintin, Hobbit, Brave, Spider-Man, etc.), too, but matching last year looks pretty good.

Note: The Yen has been fluctuating A LOT since the election two weeks ago, so the USD numbers are very likely to change significantly as they have on a daily basis.

Japanese retailing giant Aeon Group is to buy out Warner Bros Entertainment's 50% stake in the Japanese cinema chain Warner Mycal.

Warner Mycal is one of the largest exhibitors in Japan with 60 theatres and 496 screens, and was established in 1993 as a joint venture between Warner and Aeon, which was then known as Mycal.

According to a stock market filing by Aeon the deal is expected to complete in Feb or March 2013.

By combining the Warner Mycal cinemas with Aeon's wholly owned chain, which totals some 70 complexes and 600 screens, the new group expects to become the largest movie theatre operator in Japan. The current market leader is Toho Cinemas, which previously bought out the Virgin chain in Japan.

Aeon, which operates the MaxValue and TopValue supermarket chain and is in the process of buying Tesco's supermarkets in Japan and Carrefour's stores in Malaysia, did not disclose the value of the Warner Mycal stake purchase. But it said that it would fund the purchase from its own balance sheet.

Warner Bros International Cinemas has over the past two decades been a pioneer of multiplex cinemas around the world, opening more than 170 cinemas and almost 1,600 screens in 11 countries internationally. Including Portugal, Japan, Holland, Italy, China, and Taiwan. Most of these have been sold to local players, with Japan remaining the last disposal.


http://www.animeanime.biz/all/1212215/

Major announcement there.

Aeon Group is the largest retailer in Japan and Asia, and ranked 10th worldwide in 2011.

Warner Mycal is or was the second largest cinema chain as mentioned above, and is one of the four major chains I track which makes this news even more interesting. Other articles are saying Warner Bros. plans to focus more on distributing local films in the future now, which they've had greater success at in recent years.

Yes, yes, and yes. They're all July releases, too.

Pokemon Best Wishes: Extremespeed Genesect (7/13) is the only one with a date at the moment, though.

Monsters University will probably open on 7/27 (though it should move to December ala Nemo and Up).

And Studio Ghibli is releasing a double feature event film, maybe the biggest of the decade, directed by the co-founders themselves, The Wind Rises and The Princess Kaguya Story, the former is directed by Hayao Miyazaki himself, his first film since 2008's Ponyo. If it follows Ghibli's past release pattern, they'll open on 7/13 or 7/20.

Openers,
>Blue Exorcist did pretty well for itself. I figured it'd beat Twilight, and it had no trouble doing it.
>Breaking Dawn Part 2 did poorly as expected, barely making the Top 10, and perhaps worse than Part 1.

Holdovers,
>One Piece is still dominant everywhere. It's more than likely north of ¥4 billion ($50 million) now.
>Les Miserables stays strong in second place.
>Humanoid Monster looks to have benefited greatly from pre-New Year week as kid/family films tend to do. It'll do even better this week.
>The Hobbit disappears from each chain except at Toho locations after just three weeks.

MOVIX and United Cinemas are above Shikoku and Sunshine, however they don't report their weekend Top 5/10. Occasionally United Cinemas will release their Top 3, though it's rare. I don't remember the exact number of screens each chain controls, but I know I have the data somewhere and I'll post it later.

Eva making it thru 6 weeks in the top 10 seems quite good. Any chance of 7 (suspect not...)?

Ugh, if The Hobbit hadn't totally bombed here then $700m OS would be a good bet for it. There's no reason it shouldn't have been able to at least eke out $40m.

It might manage 7 weeks. There are no wide openers this weekend and it should hold better than Twlight and maybe Kamen Rider, too.

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.

Post Re: Japan Box Office (2013) Aeon Buys Out Warner Bros. Cinem
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.

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.
