Sure, but it's only down 10% from Monday which is amazing. Not to mention it's broken the non-opening Wednesday record by ~119% (not 19%, 119%). Checked this in advance, and a member on 5chan also confirmed the highest known Wednesday is from Your Name. (160,000 at the usual locations, so ~240,000 nationwide using that film's standard usual locations-to-nationwide multiplier).

And while they're very rare, once in awhile a film (just a few every 5 years its seems) will open on a Wednesday (before a major holiday week), and the record for biggest Wednesday opening day is Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince at ¥334 million. Demon Slayer's first Wednesday, its 6th day in release, will also beat that opening-day Wednesday record by ~65-70%

My husband's not very interested in box-office numbers, but he's seen that I've been doing a lot on the computer the past week so I explained to him that Demon Slayer (anime that he's watched) is breaking every record possible so far, and not just by a bit or even a lot like the usual record breaker that can come every 4-5 years, but by extraordinarily margins.

So he asked me how would it still be interesting to follow the box-office now if nothing will challenge or break these records? And he's got a point. I'll still find interest, and never say never, but everything is going to look small or disappointing in comparison from this point forward. Everything of course won't really be small and disappointing, but nothing is ever realistically going to beat the records that Demon Slayer continues to post. So enjoy this week, and maybe the weeks to follow, because it's going to be the best it ever gets.

Your husband does have a point lol.

Also to expand on DS' 2020, it's also #1 on light novel sales by a huge margin.

I was going to wait until Thursday was over to post this, but I'm about to post where Demon Slayer's Monday, Tuesday, and now Wednesday (estimate will be posted thereafter) would have ranked if they were opening weekend Saturday and Sundays versus other films of the past five-years. It's quite funny.

Post Re: Japan Box Office: Biggest Openers Since 2015
Below you'll find the familiar chart consisting of the Biggest Saturday and Biggest Sunday openers at the usual locations, that's been posted and updated over the past several years when a big film opens.

And on this chart, I've added where Demon Slayer's Monday, Tuesday, and now Wednesday would have ranked compared to all of them. It has set new Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday records (by enormous margins, Tuesday aside), and its weekdays have either rivaled or beaten the biggest Saturdays and Sundays.

And note that Wednesday is even missing 2 of its theaters that weren't processed correctly, so it'd be slightly higher. Enjoy!

Post Re: Japan Box-Office: Demon Slayer Obliterating Record Books
Assuming it does around ¥400 million on Thursday (will be its lowest day thus far), and maybe around ¥550/600 million on Friday, it'll head into the weekend around ¥7.3/7.4 billion ($69/70 million).

It's really anyone's guess what's going to happen over the second weekend. Will it have an excellent hold around 20% like many well-received big openers average, for a ridiculous second weekend of ¥2.6 billion ($24/25 million)? That'd certainly bring its two-week, 10-day total extremely close to ¥10 billion ($95 million). This scenario will require a minimal decline in seating/showtimes over the weekend, which we don't have data on yet.

Or will it see a significant decline around 50% to earn ¥1.7 billion ($16 million) that sometimes happens to fanbase-driven films? (This film has gone beyond a fanbase-driven film, but just as an example.) First, that'd still break the second-weekend record which is currently held by Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone with ¥1.57 billion ($12.2 million). Second, I don't see anything suggesting it'll drop that hard based on its weekday performance. If it sees a really big drop today (Thursday) and a minimal recovery on Friday, then perhaps, but not at this moment. This scenario would have its two-week, 10-day total around ¥9 billion ($85 million).

The highest two-week total is ¥4.75 billion ($44.5 million) from Howl's Moving Castle, and yes Demon Slayer almost beat that with its 3-day opening weekend..., so it's possible that Demon Slayer could double the two-week total record, or get quite close to doubling it. Worst-case is breaking the two-week total record by 85/90%...

And the fastest film to reach ¥10 billion was Spirited Away after 25-days, followed by Your Name. and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone tied at 28-days for second-fastest. Best-case, Demon Slayer does it in 10-days... WTF. Worse-cast, probably 13-days, still WTF.

Post Re: Japan Box-Office: Demon Slayer Obliterating Record Books
In a surprise announcement, it's been determine that 2 episodes of the Demon Slayer anime will air every Saturday for the next 7-weeks on Kansai TV (think ABC, CBS, etc. in the U.S.) in primetime between 7pm-8pm. These episodes will consist of the episodes that weren't apart of the two special TV broadcasts of the last two-weeks. https://news.yahoo.co.jp/articles/cbaff ... 36ceea3b08

Fuji TV aired a special 5-hour program featuring episodes 1-5 of the anime two-weeks ago. That special received a huge 16.7% household rating, which is approx. 9.2 million viewers. Then just last week, the same weekend the movie opened, they aired the second special 5-hour program that featured episodes 15-21, which earned an outstanding 15.4% household rating, approx. 8.5 million viewers.

10/23: Episodes 6 & 7
10/30: Episodes 8 & 9
11/06: Episodes 10 & 11
11/13: Episodes 12 & 13
11/20: Episodes 14 & 22
11/27: Episodes 23 & 24
12/04: Episodes 25 & 26

So, given the terrestrial TV station treatment in primetime (7-8pm), Japanese households are going to be seeing Demon Slayer play every Saturday until December! I don't think any anime has ever done anything like this before.

This movie does require the viewer, unless they want to go in totally blind, to have watched season one of the anime (26-episodes) or to have read the first six volumes of the manga. So this will certainly help get more casual audiences get caught up so they can check the movie out later in its run.

It seems Thursday is really the weakest day in general in box office. At 10AM (Japan time), Mimorin is projecting "conservative" 200k admits at usual location.
What is the good or best for Thursday if it doesnt want to see a big drop on its 2nd weekend?

We expected Thursday to be slow. It should see a slight uptick on Friday and then Saturday/Sunday will see good increases again. 2nd weekend will be HUGE even with a slower Thursday given that a "slow" weekday is still record breaking and better than many all time opening weekends.

Thursday is going to be the weakest day, which isn't surprising. Tuesday and Thursdays are the weakest weekdays, and first Thursdays are usually the weakest for openers.

However... It's actually doing quite well. It's down about 32% compared to Wednesday, and just about 12% versus Tuesday going into the afternoon showings. Anything below 200,000 would probably be "disappointing", but disappointing for Demon Slayer would still allow it to set a new Thursday daily record. This is still doing Saturday/Sunday numbers on a regular weekday, a Thursday of all weekdays, that many big films do when they open.

Anything above 200,000 will be good, and I'd set the goal for 225,000 at the usual locations today to indicate a likely strong Friday and upcoming second weekend. Hoping for as close to 250,000 that it can get though, because while all these numbers are just extra money added to all time record numbers already, it'd help the film get to an absurd ¥10 billion on Sunday. There's no targets to exactly aim for other than getting to the highest possible numbers as fast as possible at this point.

Starting Friday, it's basically going to begin posting the biggest numbers on record for each day AFTER the numbers it posted the past week. :funny:

I prefer a Thursday which guarantees 5m admissions in 7 days... :funny:

Yeah, I need to add that to the record list because it's the first time a film in Japan has topped the global box office. Of course, it was greatly helped by COVID in many countries and/or Hollywood delays, but it's still a notable accomplishment.

Yes. Respectable holds versus those days and it'll likely be over 400 million for the day. Thursday is as regular as it gets, so no major ticket discounts anywhere, so the average ticket price is at its highest today.

What about 5.1 million? :mer: It'll be closer to that.

I'm sure I have a Fastest to 5 Million Admissions list, which will need updated today. I don't recall what the current number 1 film is, either Spirited Away, Howl, or Harry Potter 1 most likely, but the record is like 15 or 16 days I think.

Demon Slayer did it in 7...

Hi Corpse, do you know some Japan source mentioning about prediction how much gross this movie can get? Oppinion from some analysts or something like that...

Post Re: Japan Box-Office: Demon Slayer Obliterating Record Books
Besides here and discussion on 5ch, not really. No one really knows where it's heading because it's not like predicting any other film before. All of its benchmarks or milestones or targets to hit in order to reach a specific total don't exist because of how far ahead it is of everything ever. It's ahead of the biggest films ever by a 2:1 margin at least, and most other uber-blockbusters by a 3/4:1 margin so far.

It'll become "easier" to project once its daily/weekend business comes down to the highest points of every other film so we can go from there as the starting point of its run. Because right now, all of its earnings just seem like extra on top of what it'll begin to gross in the next couple of weeks when it comes down from the heavens and back to the realm of trackable numbers. Presumably, its week 3 will be like the week 1 of all the other biggest films.

I believe it will top Spirited Away now, should be close to 10B by end of its second weekend. There's nothing that suggests it will slow down anytime soon.

Post Re: Japan Box-Office: Demon Slayer Obliterating Record Books
Because otherwise, if we just assume it's going to have daily/weekly patterns similar to most other well-received, big openers (like it's currently doing percentage wise), this thing is heading for ¥25-30 billion ($250-300 million) easy, or even higher in the ¥35/40 billion territory ($350-400 million).

The second weekend will help determine its future path a bit. All the biggest openers that went on to become among the top grossing films regularly have stellar second weekend holds of 20% or better. If Demon Slayer does the same, we can safely assume it's aiming for ¥25/30 billion or more.

About to post the Thursday estimate, but before doing so, I went back to see if anything has ever had a higher Thursday and can say that unless an older film like Spirited Away or Titanic (likely the only two candidates) had a Thursday higher than ¥400 million, then Demon Slayer has also taken the Thursday record. No one on 5ch knows of a higher Thursday either.
