Indeed. Biggest 31st Weekend on record (since 1998). So add that to its mammoth list of records now, too. I'll have the Biggest 31st Weekend Chart posted in a few. It's just Demon Slayer and Your Name. again (Spirited Away returns in Week 32).

And I'll have the Weekend Actuals and Chart Updates posted tomorrow morning/afternoon.

Why did DS jumped? I'm sorry if I missed anything! It's just that SOE extended and the giveaways got postponed.

Post Re: Japan Box-Office: Biggest Thirty-First Weekends
Biggest Thirty-First Weekends (1998-):

¥21,197,150 ($194,000), +01%, ¥39,973,049,900 ($382.0 million) - Demon Slayer: Mugen Train (2020)
¥18,236,000 ($163,000), -39%, ¥24,786,911,900 ($234.6 million) - Your Name. (2016)

Yet another weekend record! It's likely that Titanic had a bigger 31st weekend, but no data for that weekend exists (to my knowledge). This was very likely the last weekend record Demon Slayer, presumably, was able to claim before playing out next month. So congrats. Spirited Away returned to the top 10 in its 32nd weekend following its post-Oscar/push to ¥30 billion expansion, after a 6 week absence, and has the weekend records from week 32 onward.

No particular reason beyond the holds becoming increasingly better in recent days across the board (Sunday was excellent, Monday was even better, and now Tuesday is looking at increases for several films). Rural prefectures tend to hold better in general compared to urban prefectures, so with them making up a higher share of ticket sales right now due to the SOEs in some of the higher populated areas, we may see some strong holds for the next few weeks.

And since Demon Slayer is usually subject to better holds than most other films, it managed to enjoy a very slight jump this past weekend and may continue that trend for a couple weeks. Also, with the home video release just a month away now, some might be going out to catch it a final time in theaters before buying the movie.

That's a great and surprising record. Didn't think it will get there with stricter restrictions. Amazing that it's breaking records on pretty much a handicap at this point.

No problem. Japan's box office is both very predictable and very unpredictable. Explanations can usually be had for both scenarios, but typically only after the fact which makes it fun to track.

Also, this should cement Demon Slayer exceeding ¥40 billion over the upcoming weekend. Sunday (23rd) is most probable, but Saturday (22nd) could also happen.

40B by Saturday. I think there's no chance of 41B but will be cool if film manage to do 1 year run and crawl its way to 40.5B. (+10.1B Spirited Away first run).

BO Phenomenon like these have shown to have good strength even after digital release so never say never but I do believe 40.5B will happen since it still have another 2 weeks before the "official" digital release (I am still not letting go of that piracy scam which robbed the movie of 45B total :P)

I am just curious why Japan and Korea have websites to track daily box office data with details such as Mimorin or Koreanfilm (http://www.koreanfilm.or.kr/eng/news/bo ... FICE_DAILY), but it is harder to find data about the U.S. market?

Indeed. But more importantly, Fuji TV got the broadcasting rights to the second season (as speculated), meaning it's moving to primetime TV (probably 8pm or 9pm). The second season's ratings are likely going to be enormous, especially the first episode or two as all the people who saw the first season and movie will be tuning in to see what happens next. For those in the unknown, season 2 will begin right where the movie ended (the movie being a bridge between the two seasons).

The reruns of season one and the TV specials on Fuji TV (and another major station) in primetime were pulling in ratings up to 15% (8/9 million viewers) last Fall despite being aired a year prior and being available on home video and streaming services.

Searching up, Japan celebrate Buddha's Birthday some other day but wonder if there's some boost happening due to that. Tuesday up 40% from last week for DS. Just 17M away from 40B now.

Something is wrong with the independent counts, so I wouldn't predict anything off of them (at least today). They have Detective Conan, for example, selling more tickets from 34 theaters versus the 214 theaters at the usual locations. The independent locations are doing better, relatively, than normal since they're mostly located outside of the SOE affected prefectures, but 34 theaters can't be selling as much as 214 theaters.

As mentioned yesterday, surprise new #1 film this weekend!

Beautiful Lure - A Modern Tale of "Painted Skin", based on the work/teachings of messiah claimant Ryuho Okawa, debuted atop the weekend box office selling 112,564 admissions over the weekend frame on 202 screens, and 151,939 admissions since Friday. This is quite good, especially for a Nikkatsu release barely on 200 screens, and reviews are strong. All of this points to a likely leggy performance to come, but it's possible that the worshippers of Okawa could be skewing the numbers at this stage, so we should wait a week or so to see where it goes from here.

Rurouni Kenshin: The Final Chapter - The Final edges out Detective Conan to stay in the second place position with an excellent weekend hold. And the strong weekend hold, in combination with its very strong weekdays, have locked up a total north of ¥3 billion (~$30 million), so it'll very likely outgross the first film of the 5-film saga. Part 2 of the finale film opens on June 4th.

Detective Conan: The Scarlet Bullet slips to third place, though it still enjoyed a good weekend hold. It looks like strong holds are in store for the next couple weeks, so it's a little harder to project where this one could end up as Toho is likely to reschedule its postponed stage greetings in June and I wouldn't be surprised by a giveaway event of some sort to recoup some of the loss earnings from the SOEs in Tokyo/Osaka. As it is, it should be on track to break ¥7 billion (~$65 million), but depending on what Toho does next month (if anything), it could go higher still.

Evangelion 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon a Time rose a very impressive 69% in its tenth-weekend of release, due to a mini-poster giveaway. It remains to be seen if any additional giveaways or stage greetings occur post-SOEs, which would benefit it greatly, but I'd say it's aiming to finish around ¥8.7 billion (about $80 million) or so at the moment. But again, circumstances could change next month.

Fate/Grand Order: Paladin; Agateram rounds out the Top 5 with a disappointing debut, selling 37,951 admissions over the weekend, down 66% compared to the first film. This isn't a totally unexpected result it doesn't have Tokyo (or Osaka) right now which films like this heavily rely on in order to post significant numbers. It probably "should" have been delayed if earning more money was vital, and while more money is always better, Aniplex isn't exactly losing much here (especially with Demon Slayer) and probably didn't see any real need to delay it in order to earn what was probably not significantly more in the end.

Demon Slayer: Mugen Train keeps on chugging along, setting a new 31st Weekend Record! After 31 weeks of release, it has sold 28,937,578 admissions, and the ¥40 billion milestone is only days away now. 30 days until the home video release (as of Sunday) now!

The Father (except for its 3-day total) and Remnants in Twilight are estimated. The Father sold 13,019 admissions over its first three-days in release.

NOTE: Any figures for a film that earned below ¥1 billion that is no longer playing are rough estimates. It's rare for final figures for films earning below that mark to be reported, but I'm going to include them this year given the circumstances. Just remember: They're rough estimates.

Legend:
¥10 billion+ (Uber-Blockbuster) / ¥5 billion+ (Blockbuster) / ¥3 billion+ (Hit) / ¥2 billion+ (Respectable) / ¥1 billion+ (Commercial Success)

2 British productions in the TOP-10. I wonder when was the last time, if, any, that it happened.

And Demon Slayer is just ¥26 millions apart from its final and ultimate milestone!!

For the post-40 billion yen achievement, Demon Slayer should aim for 30 million admissions, which is so hard that it can be the final milestone.

With the shutdowns in several provinces and Hollywood being almost absent during the first half of the year I think it was a wise decision to keep the ¥500m benchmark for the yearly charts...

...and I have to bring this up again:

If DS2 manages a similar drop as HP2 vs. HP1 we're talking ¥34b and 25m admissions - No. 2 of all-time in both charts...

I disagree. :mer:

Since the end of December, it's just been breaking its own records and achieving new heights. The constant moving of goal posts, while fun to see just how high it can go, has also been exhausting since any possibility of it not reaching some new milestone that is just "more", and has been just more for all of 2021, and created unfounded disappointment. Like, "Oh, it beat the all-time record by ¥10 billion and 5.5 million admissions, but didn't reach 30 million admissions? That's s shame." Except...it's not. At all.

There's got to be an end, which is likely 28 days away now, so there's going to be a milestone that becomes impossible soon enough.

And not to mention, putting itself on the map for film franchise records with just two films showing
