It must have been very interesting to see the first Harry Potter movie in Japan in 2001 and wondering if it would catch up to Spirited Away.

>Weathering With You repeats in its sophomore frame, and delivered an incredible second weekend in the process, once again coming in above ¥1 billion. Its two-week total was also just shy of ¥4 billion, giving it the tenth biggest two-week total in history. Its running 3% ahead of Shinkai's previous film, Your Name.. I imagine it'll fall behind this week, but it's still playing very strong and a total north of ¥15 billion ($140-150 million+) is likely. If The Lion King or One Piece Film Stampede fail to dethrone it in two weeks, look for a very, very long run atop the box-office.

>Toy Story 4 held well, and continues to outpace every previous Pixar film after three weeks in release. It'll likely keep an impressive lead over its studio predecessors (Finding Nemo and Toy Story 3) for a couple more weeks, though the real test will be week 6 on. The film faces much bigger competition (Lion King and One Piece) than them, and it'll likely receive harsh screen/showtimes cuts on August 9th. However, while I do anticipate it to take a bit of a hit and lost most of its lead, I am predicting it will become Pixar's highest-grossing film. It's on track for around ¥12 billion ($110 million), though could go a little higher with a proper Obon Festival boost.

>The Great War of Archimedes managed to outdo its weekend co-openers, and while that's a nice accomplishment, the opening is still a bit on the low-end of expectations. It sold 202,000 admissions across 345 screens over the weekend frame, and reached 266,411 admissions since opening on Friday. The upcoming holiday period will probably allow it to reach the ¥2 billion (~$20 million) milestone, which'll make it a a success, but it could also fall just shy of the mark as well.

>Kamen Rider Zi-O: Over Quartzer outperformed my prediction and debuted in the range of the long-running franchise norm. The 59th theatrical release in the overall franchise sold a solid 194,000 admissions over the weekend frame on 325 screens, and reached 262,173 admissions since opening on Friday. Expect a total just above the ¥1 billion (~$10 million) milestone due to the frontloaded nature of the series.

>The Secret Life of Pets 2 ended up bombing after all, or if calling it a "bomb" is too extreme, it really, really, disappointed, opening almost 60% below its predecessor... The film sold 175,000 admissions over the weekend frame on 380 screens, and reached 224,376 admissions since opening on Friday. After this result and The Grinch also disappointing last year, is Illumination's surprising rise to popularity in Japan already coming to an end?

>Aladdin is losing screens and showtimes at a quick rate now, but that's not keeping it from continues to post good holds. This is the film that will be most affected by The Lion King and One Piece on August 9th, and I'm expecting it'll lose up to two-thirds of its screens/showtimes due to losing all of its premium showings. But, it's still going to outgross Alice in Wonderland (¥11.8 billion) without much trouble, and come very close to Beauty and the Beast (¥12.4 billion). At the moment, it's a coin-toss on whether it or Toy Story 4 will be Disney's biggest summer release this year (or can The Lion King enter the equation?).

>Spider-Man: Far From Home experienced another big drop, though it outgrossed its predecessor over its fifth weekend of release. It's not holding well enough to sustain enough screens/showtimes to take advantage of the upcoming Obon Festival, unfortunately, but it will be able to exceed the ¥3 billion (~$30 million) milestone.

Is Toy Story 4 the only film to debut at 1B and not top its second weekend?

It's a rare occurrence for a ¥1 billion+ debut to not repeat at #1 in their second weekend, but it has happened before. Toy Story 4 is the seventh time this has occurred:

2003: Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (knocked off by Bayside Shakedown: Save the Rainbow Bridge!).
2005: War of the Worlds (knocked off by Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith).
2006: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (knocked off by Tales from Earthsea).
2008: Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (knocked off by Boys Over Flowers: Final).
2016: One Piece Film Gold (knocked off by Shin Godzilla).
2017: Detective Conan: Crimson Love Letter (knocked off by Beauty and the Beast).
2019: Toy Story 4 (knocked off by Weathering With You).

This list is since 1998. And it's safe to say that no film before 1998 opened above ¥1 billion since Princess Mononoke broke the opening weekend record in 1997 with ¥750 million (¥745 million, I believe). Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace was the first film to open above ¥1 billion.

That sounds about right, though it looks like it'll open a little higher (say, ¥450 million or so). It'll be close between it and Toy Story 4 for second place, though I'm leaning toward Toy Story 4 keeping its second place position at the moment.

I'm working on the August and September release schedules right now for posting later, and noticed something worth mentioning here first.

Detective Conan: The Fist of Blue Sapphire is getting a 4D expansion of 77 theaters on August 16th. The same thing happened with last year's film (just much later in the year). The Fist of Blue Sapphire broke the franchise admissions record, but is sitting 0.65% (or ¥61 million) away from breaking the franchise revenue record. This expansion will be more than enough to get it there, and should add ¥200/300 million ($2/3 million) to its gross.

Early 2018 is when it starting to gain traction, and then by mid-2018 it more or less became the standard. The traditional 2-day weekend (Sat. and Sun.) remains the same though.

>Weathering With You will repeat once again atop the box-office. Makoto Shinkai's latest likely exceeded the ¥5 billion milestone on Thursday, its 14th-day in release, which is the same amount of time it took Your Name. to reach the mark. Weathering With You has been keeping pace/slightly outpacing (in total) Your Name. so far, but I do believe it'll begin to fall behind beginning this weekend. It's still a bit difficult to project a likely total, but it seems like it is heading somewhere around the ¥15 billion ($140/$150 million) milestone, especially with the Obon Festival holiday period a little over a week away to really bolster its gross.

>Toy Story 4 continues to do strong business. I'm a bit concerned what will happen to it next weekend when The Lion King opens. Disney likes to give their latest blockbuster as many screens/showtimes as possible, which usually results in their holdover(s) taking a significant hit. As long as it doesn't take a crippling hit next week (40%+), it'll enter the Obon Festival holiday period on strong footing and cement itself as Pixar's highest grossing film in the market.

>Hobbs & Shaw will see a noticeable drop from the main series of films, likely dropping 30/40% compared to The Fate of the Furious. This isn't surprising, it regularly happens with spin-offs. And I will say that if it ends up seeing a decline around 30% versus 40%, I'd consider it pretty good.

>Dragon Quest: Your Story is a rare CGI animated film (remember, Japan remains almost exclusively a 2D animated market) based on the very popular Dragon Quest video game series. I don't know too much about this film yet, but I'll do some research on it before the end of the weekend. It's going to do solid business (CGI local films can struggle), and if it comes in around the forecast above, it could wind up with a surprising total since the Obon Festival holiday period is just over a week away.

And a side note: There was a lot of rain and thunderstorms during the end of July, so it's possible that the sunny weather (albeit hot) could have a small negative impact on the weekend box-office. Weather rarely affects the box-office in Japan (unless it's particularly awful, i.e. a major typhoon), but since the first two weeks of summer vacation was very rainy, I could see people (family and teens) taking advantage of the sunny weather this weekend.

Dragon Quest is a wildly popular video game series of course. By revenue, it matches Miyazaki.

Also aren't they making a CGI Lupin III movie eventually?

I know what Dragon Quest is, and its relevance and huge popularity, just not much about the film that debuted yesterday.

And yes, Lupin III is getting the CGI treatment this December. It looks great, and it'll probably be well-received since Takashi Yamazaki is directing it. Yamazaki is one of Japan's biggest modern directors, and he also directed Doraemon's first CGI film in 2014 that was a huge hit at the box-office.

EDIT: So.. Takashi Yamazaki is the director of the Dragon Quest film as well! He's been very, very busy. Three very notable films from him this year. He is also the director of The Great War of Archimedes that opened last weekend.

Oh I was just trying to make a point about something. I do expect you to know about Dragon Quest.

Dragon Quest VI in 1995 probably made around 30 billion yen in revenue, similar to Spirited Away.
