06 (03) ¥86,000,000 ($775,000), -27%, ¥2,425,000,000 ($21.6 million), The 8-Year Engagement (Shochiku) WK6
07 (04) ¥76,000,000 ($685,000), -33%, ¥2,875,000,000 ($25.6 million), Destiny: The Tale of Kakamura (Toho) WK7

>Geostorm easily take the #1 spot, and has achieved quite the respectable debut based on estimates. And based on this estimate, it has a solid chance of exceeding the ¥1 billion ($9/10 million) milestone, which will make Japan possibly its second biggest international market.

Disaster films have become a genre of the past, and while this debut certainly pales in comparison to those from the late 1990's and 2000's, I believe this is the biggest opening for a disaster film since... 2012 (the film), so in 9 years? I'll do some research when actuals are released to confirm this.

>Star Wars: The Last Jedi falls to second place in its sixth-weekend, experiencing yet another mediocre decline... I don't think it'll have enough in it to even reach ¥7.5 billion, probably stalling around ¥7.3 billion ($64/65 million).

A finish over ¥7 billion is strong for almost any film, but this is a rare case where I'd rule it disappointing considering it'll be down 35%+ versus Episode VII, and even down 20% versus the lowest-grossing film in the Prequel Trilogy, Episode III. Clearly, WOM had a big impact here, so much so that a lot of franchise fans apparently decided to skip this entry despite its opening weekend nearly being identical to its predecessors.

>The Lies She Loved appears to have earned a Top 3 debut, though we'll have to wait for actuals considering how close it is. So-so debut here, pretty standard for a film like this during this time of year.

>Paddington 2 basically matches the debut of the original based on estimates, and actuals will tell whether it ends up opening above or under it. Either way, solid debut, and nice to see it largely retaining its audience from the first film.

>Geostorm easily takes the #1 spot, selling a solid 170,593 admissions over the weekend frame across 584 screens (and 217,353 admissions since Friday). Overall, this is a respectable debut, one that should result in a total above the ¥1 billion (~$10 million) milestone, making Japan its second biggest international market behind China.

Disaster films have largely become a movie genre of the past, and while this debut does pale in comparison to disaster films from the late 1990's and 2000's, this just so happens to be the biggest opening weekend for one since 2009's 2012. Very impressive.

>The Lies She Loved not just managed a Top 3 debut, but even came in second place over the weekend; it sold a fair 116,803 admissions across 285 screens. This opening is nothing to get excited about, and is pretty much on par with smaller, off-season, live-action films in the market, but it's decent enough for this time of year.

>Star Wars: The Last Jedi falls to third place already in its sixth-weekend, delivering a so-so decline when it really needed a stronger hold by this point of its release. Episode VIII in the franchise is going to exceed ¥7 billion without any problems, and while that's strong for the majority of films, I'd consider it a rare disappointment this time considering how low it is compared to its predecessors.

For example, it's going to end up 37/38% behind Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and also down about 20% compared to the lowest-grossing film in the prequel trilogy, Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, despite achieving a debut pretty much on par with all its predecessors. It took a couple weeks into its release, but clearly negative WOM is at play here given the relative consistency of the franchise in the past.

>Kingsman: The Golden Circle is holding decently, and looks to nearly double the gross of Kingsman: The Secret Service.

>Paddington 2 unfortunately slips a bit and had to settle for a fifth place debut. The highly-acclaimed sequel sold 93,103 admissions over the weekend on 382 screens (and 109,761 admissions since Friday). This opening is 7% below that of the original, one of Kino Film's highest-grossing films ever, which seems good to me, and legs just might be better this time around since the original surprisingly didn't have much staying power. We'll see.

Hi Corpse, the title of your last post should be "top grossing films" instead of "top opening weekends".

The LEGO Batman Movie and Logan were the only two that missed the ¥1 billion milestone. I'll post what they grossed, as well as all the other Marvel/DC films, possibly before the weekend.

Eiren (Motion Picture Producers Association of Japan, Inc.) will announce the 2017 Yearly Data, along with the final totals for any film that grossed ¥1 billion or more, in the next few days.

Ha, awesome that Geostorm topped the charts in Japan. But it is trash. It should drop quickly. Or are the Japs liking it, Corpse?

Its reception seems good enough, averaging user ratings of 3.5/5 on some of the more popular movie sites. It also had solid weekdays this past week, so I don't think it'll collapse, though legs for most January releases are below average, so we'll see.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Weekend Forecast (01/27-28)
The Yearly Data for 2017 is now available, and I'll be posting them here in the next couple hours.

A few quite notes about the year:

2017 was down versus 2016, but 2016 was always going to be hard to follow since it was the biggest year ever in terms of revenue and the most-attended year since 1974. 2017 does, however, snap the very impressive five-year streak (2012-2016) of both revenue and admission increases.

Not all was bad for 2017, though, and in fact, quite the opposite: 2017 still ended up as the 2nd biggest year ever in terms of revenue and the 2nd most-attended year since 1999. 62 films ended up reaching the ¥1 billion (~$9/10 million) milestone, as well, to tie the record with 2016 and 2005. And finally, 2017 achieved one particularly impressive feat, one that dates back almost 50 years.

Much more later.

Is there a reason Incredibles 2 is opening in August rather than mid-July like most Pixar releases?

Above Cars 2, below Finding Dory.

~¥4 billion is the standard gross for well-received Pixar originals, so a gross around that figure is likely.

Is there a reason Incredibles 2 is opening in August rather than mid-July like most Pixar releases?


I don't think there's any particular reason, really, beyond it being an excellent spot for two reasons:

1.) The August 1st date is an excellent one, and right now, it has the beginning of August largely to itself since not much has been scheduled for Obon Festival (mid-August) yet.

2.) Mid/Late-July is already getting very crowded anyway: Pokemon 21, Jurassic World 2, Mirai of the Future, Bleach, Code Blue: The Movie, and Rainbow Days all are already scheduled for the last three weekends of July. And the Summer Release Schedule isn't complete yet, either, with some other notable films still awaiting release dates such as Gintama 2 and Mission: Impossible 6.

There's still over 20 films announced for Summer on the schedule that haven't received dates yet.

>The Crimes That Bind, based on the murder case novels by author Keigo Higashino, and the latest starring popular actor Hiroshi Abe, debuts atop the box office to satisfactory results. The estimated opening is on par with the last film featuring the two, 2012's The Wings of the Kirin.

>Geostorm held pretty well in its second weekend, and has guaranteed that it'll exceed the ¥1 billion ($10 million) milestone now. It'll be the first disaster film to reach the mark since 2009's 2012, remarkably.

>Star Wars: The Last Jedi finally manages a good hold, but it's also fallen too far to take real advantage of it. ¥7.5 billion is still probably out of reach, but if it can hold onto enough screens come late-March, it might be able to crawl to the mark. I have it finishing with ¥7.3/7.4 billion ($65 million), and while respectable, it's certainly disappointing after its debut, and in regard to the totals of its predecessors.

>Paddington 2 held well in its sophomore weekend, though not as well as the original. The first film experienced excellent holds early on, but its later holds were average/poor, so maybe the sequel can catch up then.

>The Dark Tower is a bust for Sony; even with the respectable theater/screen count given to the film, it was only just able to make the Top 10.

>The Crimes That Bind, based on the murder case novels by author Keigo Higashino, and the latest starring popular actor Hiroshi Abe, debuts atop the box office with 205,823 admissions sold over the weekend across 335 screens. This is a solid debut, one that's just 4% below the last film based on a Higashino novel and starring Hiroshi Abe, 2012's The Wings of the Kirin. Expect a total above ¥1.5 billion (~$15 million).

>Geostorm held well in its second weekend, and has guaranteed that it'll exceed the ¥1 billion ($10 million) milestone now. It'll be the first disaster film to reach the mark since 2009's 2012, remarkably.

>Star Wars: The Last Jedi finally managed a good hold, but it's also fallen too far to take real advantage of it. ¥7.5 billion is still probably out of reach, but if it can hold onto enough screens come late-March, it might be able to crawl to the mark. I have it finishing with ¥7.3/7.4 billion ($65 million), and while respectable, it's certainly disappointing after its debut, and in regard to the totals of its predecessors. After seven weeks in release, Episode VIII in the franchise has exceeded 4.7 million admissions, and begins its slow crawl to the 5 million milestone.

>Paddington 2 held well in its sophomore weekend, though not as well as the original. The first film experienced excellent holds early on, but its later holds were average/poor, so maybe the sequel can catch up then.

>The 8-Year Engagement and Destiny: The Tale of Kakamura continue their impressive runs, with the former having exceeded the ¥2.5 billion mark (and 2 million admissions) in its seventh weekend of release; while the latter will exceed the ¥3 billion milestone in just a few more days.

>Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Karma Chapter debuts in ninth place despite only playing on 29 screens, but its weekend gross hasn't been released yet. Sometimes it take a few more days for limited releases from sub-divisions of distributors to be released, so I'll update it the number when it's available.

>The Dark Tower is a huge bomb for Sony, only selling 30,995 admissions over the weekend on 235 screens and coming in tenth place.
