It's really going to have the 10 biggest single days all to itself by the end of the week, isn't it? Nuts. Just nuts.

Also, what would happen if it beat the record in one currency but not the other?


Local currency record is what matters.

Right? All the Japanese are at home reading Demon Slayer and playing Animal Crossing between their Zoom calls while having a Lemon Sour cocktail.

And they basically do the same when they go out with a face mask on (probably featuring Demon Slayer art), except now they're watching Demon Slayer in theaters, take Animal Crossing on the go, and sip Lemon Sour under their masks using a straw.


I wish there were reactions like BOT.

count me IN for 2020 WW topper. Japan will mostly do $360-375mn on its own. Taiwan gonna do $13-15mn as well. If Taiwan is that big, can expect China to be at least 7-10x that, the lowest I have seen is 5.25x of Dragon Ball Super: Brolly. These 3 gives $463mn in low end and $540mn in high end of that 7-10x thing.

But even it follow DBS:B's 5.25x should mean $68-79mn China, which is more than enough.

For some reason I thought The Eight Hundred was over $500m, but damn at this possibility.

Of all the records and "firsts" that Demon Slayer has broken, "First Japanese movie to top the Worldwide Box Office" (if it happens) might be the one that never gets broken again, not even in a hundred years (for very special reasons obviously). In fact, has there ever been a time in cinematic history where a Hollywood movie didn't top the WW BO?

Favorite (main four) character?
Favorite Hashira? (little to go in the first season, but their general personalities* are revealed at least)
Favorite demon so far?

*That I know of. Haven't finished the manga yet.

(Anyone can reply, as long as no spoilers are posted. And maybe just keep to season one/movie material.)


Tanjiro, zenitsu, inosuke and Nezuko are mg fave characters
Rengoku is my fave hashira, 2nd is Shinobu then Sanemi/Giyuu (they're tied)
Favorite demon is Akaza. Great character design all upper moon demons have great character designs.

This is based off Season 1 impressions and the train arc in the manga:

1. Tanjiro, but Zenitsu and Inosuke make me laugh the most in the show.
2. Shinobu
3. Akaza

As of Tuesday 2PM, the first holiday the film has had, it's aiming for around 800,000 admissions at the usual locations, and accounting for the better share that rural locations have on weekdays (~33% versus ~25% on weekends), we can probably safely predict it exceeding 1.1 million admissions overall for the day. Only looking at a 300%+ increase over last Tuesday.

That'll give it around ¥1.4/1.5 billion ($13/14 million+) today if it holds steady. Higher than its opening day, and higher than either this past Saturday or Sunday.

:nutso:

Corpse, can you post last weekend actuals ?

So if should be the last day for Demon Slayer above 1 million admissions, is it still possible for Demon Slayer to hit 10 of his days into the top 10 days of the Japanese box office ?

Looks like it'll hover around its opening day actually (maybe a tad lower), afternoon and evening dropped off a lot compared to its ridicolous morning showings.

I think it's possible. The only day DS needed to top is Frozen's Tuesday which was done today I believe (please correct me if I'm wrong) and there are still events which Corpse said like after the airing of Episode 25 and 26 on primetime (with 8-9 million viewers, if I remember correctly) and the release of Volume 23 would invite fans to rewatch the movie again so who knows! Watching the Mugen Train's performance in the box office is like a movie in itself.

Yes, the evening showings really slowed, more than I expected. Bur it's a weekday, not unusual.

The day is still on par with this past Saturday and its opening day, and still allows it to have the biggest eight single days (and the Tuesday record) but it'll be shy of 1 million admissions--still likely broke 900,000 though.

Nope. At least not since WW1.

And it might get broken again...if there's another pandemic. :ninja:

Since today is going to fall a bit shy of 1 million admissions, then it probably won't get there again.

If any days have the potential, the they'd be 11/23 (Labour Day), 12/01 (Ladies' Day and Discount Day), and 12/05 (Sunday after season one's finale is broadcast in prime time and the release of the manga's last volume).

We need to watch for any giveaway events though. It's common for studios of anime films like this to reward the fans with a giveaway in theaters throughout their runs. And with a base and general audience awareness at record levels for this movie, such an event will bring out a lot of people (repeat viewers).

Regardless, it's had 5 days over 1 million admissions. Before it, no films had done this, and only one had even done 800,000 (estimated).

Yep, later today (sonner than later). I wait an extra day on big weekends like this to make sure all the numbers are in in case it cracks the Biggest Aggregated Weekend list (which it did, the third weekend in a row of 2020 to do it).

There may be some Indian films in old era due to currency being better and golden age of box office in 1940-1970s + a big market of USSR in overseas, but not entirely sure. Ticket prices in India were $0.35 or so in 1950s, around same as USA, so bigger population would have helped.

Found this one, which was claimed to be 2nd biggest in world during 1948-50, watched by 33mn people in India.

Some days ago you predicted $162M by Tuesday and we are actually at $169M by Tuesday it's wonderful and even if it miss the 1 million admission today it's still incredible

>Demon Slayer: Mugen Train still on top. And like the past two weeks, we've been discussing the film enough to where there's nothing else to really say in this post. If you have any questions, check the past several pages regarding its third weekend (or just ask me or the forum again).

>The Voice of Sin opened in second place, selling 145,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 344 screens, and sold 201,214 admissions over its first three-days in release. A very distant second obviously, but this is a pretty solid debut this time of year and should give Toho another ¥1 billion (~$10 million) earner for the year.

>Pretty Cure Miracle Leap! A Mysterious Day With Everyone debuted in third place, selling 97,372 admissions over the weekend on 239 screens. This film was originally scheduled back in the Spring, but got delayed and rescheduled here due to COVID. Not a very good opening here, certainly below the average the franchise posts each year, but in its defense, it was very limited in its seating/showtimes due to Demon Slayer and The Voice of Sin getting most of the leftover medium-sized screens. Let's wait and see how legs are before writing this one off.

>Tenet exceeded the ¥2.5 billion mark after its seventh weekend in release. As I've mentioned, this is Nolan's second biggest film in the market, very impressive, and it's even grossed 71% of Inception's total now. It's slowing down, but should still add a fair amount more to reach about ¥2.7 billion ($25.5 million+) to get above 3/4ths of Inception's total.

>The Asadas! exceed the ¥1 billion (~$10 million) milestone before heading into the weekend, making it a success. It's been well-received by audiences and critics (picking up some notable awards already), but it hasn't really been able to expand its reach very well. A success, but it is coming in a bit below expectations.

The Weekend Top 10 is up a whopping 176% versus the same weekend last year.
