It comes out on home video on June 5th, so if any updated number is released, it should be in three/four weeks.


I am sure Miyazaki is shivering in his sleep. :P

The post-Golden Week weekend is one of the worst in terms of drops and debuts, and given this year's GW was super-sized, this weekend will follow that tradition, but on steroids.

Since Endgame is naturally frontloaded, it'll perhaps, surprisingly, have one of the better holds as a result of not having as far to fall after the holidays. It'll likely return to #1, and pre-sales suggest this as well. Detective Pikachu will also have one of the "better" holds this weekend as well since it was released on the tail-end of Golden Week, therefor it didn't burn as much demand before its opening. Detective Conan, however, was the strongest film over the Golden Week holiday frame, so it's going to suffer one of the biggest drops and will probably fall from #1.

The bottom half of the Top 10 is a mess. There are a lot of limited and near-limited releases opening this weekend, and since holdovers in the bottom half of the Top 10 last week are going to see huge drops, the #6-10th positions could go to any of around ten or so films.

So that would be a nice twist. Corpse have any of MCU/DC movies reached #1 in its 3rd weekend? Specially original Spiderman trilogy.

I'm sure none have done it after not reaching #1 in previous weekends.

I'll doubt check, but I'm 99% certain it'll become only the third superhero film to be #1 in its third weekend, after Spider-Man and Spider-Man 3. Spider-Man 2 opened just two weeks after Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and while it did open at #1, that was its only weekend at #1 due to Harry Potter taking over the #1 spot again in its second weekend onward.

And again, excluding the Spider-Man trilogy, Endgame has basically claimed every other record for a superhero film in the market.

Close battle for #1 between Avengers: Endgame and Pokemon: Detective Pikachu, both rising due to the expected large decline for Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire (due to it playing so strong over the holidays). Endgame edged out the victory in revenue, but Detective Pikachu managed to win the weekend in admissions by just 2,000 (209,000 versus 207,000).

>Endgame is by far the biggest non-Spider-Man superhero film ever in the market now, an achievement it accomplished last week, and will soon exceed the ¥5 billion blockbuster milestone. A ¥6 billion ($55 million) finish is probably asking for just a bit too much, but it'll get very close to that mark, likely finishing with ¥5.8/5.9 billion. That won't be enough to put it over any of the Spider-Man trilogy films, but to put this number into perspective, it'll be 60% higher than Infinity War; 65% higher than The Avengers; and 85% higher than Age of Ultron.

>Detective Pikachu held very well in the post-Golden Week weekend, though the drop is a little misleading since it opened on the tail-end of the holiday frame. Still, this is a good hold, much stronger than the second weekend holds that the animated films typically have. I'm actually expecting legs to be pretty solid, so a total of ¥3 billion ($25 million+) is attainable.

>Kingdom is still going strong, exceeding the ¥4 billion milestone over its fourth weekend of release. It's been showing some of the better post-Golden Week holds, and even with mediocre legs from this point on, it should be able to reach the ¥5 billion ($45 million) blockbuster milestone. This is a big win for Toho (and Sony), as well as for live-action adaptation of popular manga. If it exceeds ¥5 billion, it'll become only the third ever live-action manga adaptation from a Weekly Shonen, following second films in the Death Note and Rurouni Kenshin trilogies, respectively.

>Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire experienced a harsh drop in both earnings and ranking in its fifth weekend of release, but the decline was to be expected given its strength over the Golden Week holiday frame. It will end up getting very close to the ¥9 billion ($80 million+) mark, but it could also just fall short. Last year's film, Zero the Enforcer (the highest grossing film in the franchise), stopped just shy of that figure as well until it received a premium format expansion six-months after its debut that pushed it beyond the mark.

>ALL of the openers, ranked 7th-10th, haven't had any of their numbers released yet, except for the 3-day total for The Curse of Llorona. So, they're all estimates based on their weekend admissions rankings. When, or if (due to being either limited or near-limited), their weekend numbers are released, I'll edit this post with them.

>And, Bohemian Rhapsody is now at ¥13,002,823,080 ($116.6 million) with 9,414,183 admissions after 178 days in release. It's still playing on 59 screens, but I expect it'll probably finish up very soon now. An absolutely stunning, phenomenal performance.

The top 3 films above are the only three with any numbers revealed so far, so I'm just going to post their numbers and just the weekend rankings of the remaining seven films. I'll then fill in the rest of the numbers when/if they're made available later this week.]

No additional numbers yet? Or do you have your own estimates for the lower ranks?

I stopped tracking it when it was near ¥600 million (~$5.5 million). I wouldn't have added too much after that point, but perhaps a finish around ¥650 million (just short of $6 million) is likely.

Also, welcome to the forum!

Nope. It's rare, but sometimes weekends before major holiday periods just never have their full results revealed. This is one of those cases. I can provide estimates for the other films for you though. I'll PM you once I edit the original post sometime over the weekend.

>Pokemon: Detective Pikachu debuted in third place two weeks ago; rose to second place in its second weekend; and now it may very well rise once again and take the #1 spot in its third weekend of release. The film has been enjoying good WOM, and is likely benefiting from those now turning out for it that were previously weary of the film due to its Hollywood production. I believe this will be a fairly short-lived boost, maybe til the end of the month, but we may need to keep watch on this one -- it could end up being extra-leggy.

>The Confidence Man JP will be attempting to block Pikachu from rising to #1, and it certainly could do it, though I think it'll fall just short of the top spot. Either way, it'll have a respectable opening weekend.

>The big trio from April, Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire, Kingdom, and Avengers: Endgame, will continue to add to their impressive running totals. Almost every April (pre-Golden Week) has a similar slate of three particular tentpoles (a Detective Conan film, a big live-action domestic film, and a big Disney film), and this year's trio are among the strongest of the decade. All three films will be in the Yearly Top 10 (Conan probably Top 3/5).

Not by a mile, but it'll be a comfortable #1. It really over-performed what its pre-sales were suggesting, probably indicating that it skewed heavily towards older adults (40-60+). Its opening is also much higher than most other shows with similar ratings (season 1 averaged just a 8.9% share) typically debut to.

Weekend Estimates will be up in a bit.

>The Confidence Man JP takes the #1 spot, debuting noticeably higher than early numbers were suggesting. The first movie in the TV comedy is enjoying strong reviews from both critics and audiences, so I would expect a good run to go along with its good opening. It'll probably exceed ¥2 billion ($20 million).

>Pokemon: Detective Pikachu holds strong in second place, delivering the best hold in the Top 10. WOM appears to be quite good for the film, and I believe a number of weary moviegoers who may have been interested in seeing it, but not in theaters, are likely coming out now. This will probably be a short-lived benefit, maybe til the end of the month, but we may need to keep watch on this one -- it could end up being extra-leggy. For now, expect a total between ¥3.0-3.5 billion (~$30 million).

>There is a very close race for the #3 spot (less than 1,000 admissions from ~70% of the market separate them), but I think it'll go to Kingdom since it plays better in rural areas (just don't be surprised if Endgame is #3). All of the pre-Golden Week openers in April have performed very well, and Kingdom is no exception. It's going to clear the ¥5 billion blockbuster milestone, a figure that has become difficult for domestic live-action films to reach. Also, there's even a possibility that it'll become the highest-grossing live-action film adapted from a Weekly Shonen manga series. It needs to outgross Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno's ¥5.22 billion total for that title, and that looks at least 50% doable.

>Avengers: Endgame is dropping a bit hard, unsurprising given most superhero films do, but it's now exceeded the ¥5 billion blockbuster milestone, becoming the only non-Spider-Man superhero film to ever reach this status. I don't expect it to develop any late-legs, so expect a finish around ¥6 billion ($53/54 million). Very, very impressive.

>Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire is holding steady, which was a bit of a concern coming out of a very, very big (Super) Golden Week holiday frame. It's difficult to tell whether or not it'll outgross last year's film to become the highest-grossing film in the long-running franchise, but it'll be very close either way. Last year's film got an expansion very late in its run (6 months later), which allowed it to exceed ¥9 billion. This year's film is on track to reach just about ¥9 billion ($82/83 million) without any expansion, so I guess it'll be Toho's decision if they want it to claim the record or not.
