Hello, I'm also a newbie :)

Corpse, do you have some information about the Hibike! Euphonium movie? I'm also searching numbers about "Liz and the blue bird" last year...

Thanks for your help!

Hello, Im newbie. I want to ask some question.

Is there any reason why Sam Raimi Spiderman doing so well ? Im asking this because Homecoming is the lowest grossing Spiderman live action although this time it is part of MCU. Spiderverse also flop in market where animation usually doing very well.

I know it is too early but how do you think Monster Hunter movie will do in Japan ? It is one of the biggest gaming franchise in Japan .


Spider-Man is by far the most popular superhero in the market, and has had a long history (live-action TV shows, comics, etc.) in the market well before the films were released. The anticipation surrounding the first Spider-Man film was huge, and once it delivered, the sequels were able to maintain a similar level of success.

Every other Spider-Man film has failed to live up to the success of the original trilogy, but with that said, they're still the biggest superhero films in the market if you exclude the Avenger films. So while they've dropped versus the Raimi films, quite considerably, they're still doing great for the superhero genre itself.

Spider-Verse disappointed for various reasons. First, it wasn't focused around Peter Parker, which is the most-known character in the series. Second, while animation does perform very well in the market, the vast majority of imported animated films disappoint/bomb unless they're released by Disney or Illumination (and Illumination hasn't solidified its position yet). And third, while this may come across as "wrong", or "racist", the Japanese don't relate to "black films" very well. It's a cultural situation, not a racist one. Spider-Verse focused on main black characters (even if they are animated) and the black urban culture a bit, so the cultural differences really limited its audience.

And welcome to the forum. :thumbsup:

Is the Euphonium movie the one that opened recently, or a previous film?

About Liz and the Blue Bird, it missed the Top 10 in its debut last year and I don't have it making an appearance in, or near, the top 10 on any weekend chart. But, I can go back and give you some rough estimates for its debut and total.

Also, welcome to the forum! :yes:

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Super Golden Week Begins
So there have been a lot of requests in here in recent days, and I will get around to them. However, I'm mainly focusing on just Golden Week until the weekend, so have a bit of patience. ;)

I have a pretty full work schedule this week, too, so there'll be a couple days this week that I post the daily estimate slightly early so that they're not posted too late. This means I'll have them up about an hour before final showtimes begin, but this should't affect the estimates, rather just the percentage increases a bit which I'll edit later on.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Super Golden Week Begins
It's receiving fewer screens/seating than both Detective Conan and Avengers, but it still has plenty to allow for a good debut. The screen/seating allocation was always going to be an issue with this release date.

Pre-sales are looking good, but it is opening on a national holiday and nearly anything and everything performs well on holidays, so we can't really get an accurate reading on it yet.

After just 7 days, Avengers: Endgame has outgrossed all but 5 superhero movies: Spider-Man, Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man 3, Avengers: Infinity War, and Marvel's The Avengers. It'll surpass the original Avengers on Friday, its 8th day in release, and then Infinity War over the weekend on either its 9th or 10th day in release.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Super Golden Week
I'm going to post Friday's Estimates here soon. The Top 3 films are very close, but Detective Conan likely edged out the first place victory.

Detective Pikachu will come in second place in admissions, but maybe third place in revenue because of of it having limited premium format showings due to releasing so close to Endgame. And assuming Pikachu may have some family appeal, its average ticket price probably isn't noticeably high (probably just slightly above average). And Endgame is close enough to it in admissions, that while it ranked third in admissions for the day, it could have stayed in second place in revenue. I don't want to have them tied when I post the estimates, so I'll crunch the numbers some more before posting them.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Super Golden Week
Okay, I'm pretty sure some will come in here thinking Detective Pikachu "disappointed/bombed", or something, but it hasn't. First, it's very early and it's hard to make such a claim after a single day (especially during a holiday week). Second, the number is actually pretty good. It's about on par with the average first day of the annual Pokemon film franchise every July.

There was nothing indicating that Detective Pikachu would be a huge film in Japan. It's always a major misconception that a Hollywood adaptation of a popular Japanese source will be a monster hit in the market, but that's never the case. Hollywood adaptations of domestic source material are always a very difficult sell, often being met with rejection, and have to rely on positive WOM to make them hits. The Japanese reactions to the trailer (Pokemon designs) were lukewarm at best, too.

Also, considering that the Pokemon franchise is almost exclusively a children's franchise in the market, it was going to be hard to directly appeal to them with a darker live-action film. Japan, of course, won't have that nostalgia factor that many other markets will probably have toward the film either.

Actually I thought that's a pretty good opening day, but I wasn't sure if the holiday is skewing the gross into "pretty good opening" territory...

Hi Corpse!

I'm a little surprised at the initial performance of Birthday Wonderland. Is Keiichi Hara not as big a draw in Japan? I'm wondering how it compares with the box office of his previous films, such as Miss Hokusai, Colorful, and Summer Days with Coo.

It could be, yes. Saturday is looking to come in a bit below Friday, and while that's not uncommon during holiday weeks (weekdays can often be bigger than weekends), it's also not very encouraging. But it's still early into the day, and the weekend, so let's wait and see.

The most telling numbers for Detective Pikachu, in particular, will be from Tuesday onward. May/June are very bad months for films that skew toward families and teens, so if it's having any similar appeal to the animated films, it's going to be in some trouble.

Hara's original films have been limited, or near limited, releases, and their box office numbers reflect that. I wouldn't go as far as not calling him a draw though, because I believe Birthday Wonderland may be doing better numbers than any of his other original films. I don't remember any of the others having a consistent (albeit just a week) stay in the Top 10. If anything, he has a small but reliable base.

I'll check on the numbers for his other films over the weekend, as well as get back to everyone else who asked me questions over the past week.

Do you think it was a good release date or could there have been a better one?

What's the Japanese WOM like? Having said that, the Pokemon films have looked really mediocre for years- possibly always-, so it might be hard to get them to buy in to this film even if it is live action.

I didn't like the release date, but I also understand why they wanted it to be released in Japan before anywhere else.

First, the release date was in the middle of Golden Week (even on the tail-end given this year's expanded week), so it couldn't fully benefit from one of the three biggest weeks of the year (the biggest this year). Second, as I said, May and June are weak months for films that target family/kids, so if it's appealing to them, it'll have a bumpy road ahead. And third, most imported films perform better with a later release in the market. Pokemon is a known franchise, obviously, so that typically makes a day-and-date (or earlier in this case) okay to go with, but since this is an original film Hollywood adaptation of a domestic source, a later release could have been used to help promote it better. I would have gone with December.

WOM can take awhile to determine in Japan since it's not a frontloaded market, but so far user scores on movie sites are averaging 3/5.

The yearly animated franchise may look "mediocre", and they can be, mostly because they almost exclusively (like 80/90%) appeal to children in the market, young children (think 12 and under). They always release at the beginning of Summer Vacation every July, so they're always a safe and reliable choice to see in theaters every year.
