Not many would have expected Evangelion to have a third weekend above ¥500 million, but here we are. Very impressive. Also, its three-week total looks like it managed to crack the all-time top 10 (at #10) highest three-week totals. Remarkable.

*: Run in the top 10 bolstered by spring/summer 2020 delays in response to Covid-19.

It'll take a bit of a hit on the weekends of April 16th (Detective Conan) and April 23rd (Rurouni Kenshin), but it should have enough staying power to hold a firm position somewhere in the bottom half of the top 10 on these weekends and throughout Golden Week at the end of April and into early May.

So I definitely see it reaching 30 weeks overall AND consecutively, and it could add a couple more weekends to that before it drops. The most weeks it'll be aiming for is either 34 or 35 since that's when the home video release launches, and home video releases in Japan tend to result in major drop-offs and I'd expect it to drop outside the Top 10 for sure then. But it also does depend on how everything else is performing, and some disappointing films here or there could keep it hanging in there a bit longer. But don't expect more than 34 or 35.

**: Run in the top 10 bolstered by spring/summer 2020 delays in response to Covid-19.


A 24th week in the Top 5 is guaranteed next weekend since there's another giveaway event, so it'll at the very least add one more to its current total. A 25th and 26th week is also possible, it just depends on what sort of decline it sees after Spring Break and how the openers do in the next couple of weeks, but 26 will be the maximum since it's likely to take a hit (as will most everything) in its 27th week when Detective Conan opens.

If not for the 2020 re-releases for Spirited Away and Princess Mononoke which netted them each 6 additional weeks in the Top 5, Demon Slayer would be safely above them and second just to Titanic.

Was impressed to see it beats Titanic's Day 163 take ($846k), but E.T.'s was $1.3m (this was the weekend before it's Thanksgiving boost).


Wasn't ET a re-release by then?


Nah, it re-expanded the following weekend (although had never dropped out of wide release up to that point), but its recorded first run in theaters went on for a full year.

Need to wait and see. This isn't a normal release and no one knows anything on how it'll perform.

I'm not going to predict or project anything for it outside of Weekend Forecasts/Estimates for the remainder of its run.


I was not talking about Demon Slayer specially, but of all films in general during this period.

Post Re: Japan Box-Office: Weekend Estimates (03/26-27)
I'll post Daily Estimates this week given it's a holiday period. Spring Break and Christmas Week are very similar in the films they benefit and by how much. They're not apart of the biggest three weeks of the year (New Year, Golden Week, and Obon Festival), but they're usually fourth and fifth biggest depending on what films are playing.

It won't be a particularly strong week since there aren't many films in release right now that will greatly benefit from Spring Break. Doraemon typically cleans up this week each year, but alas, it was delayed (possibly from production delays, not COVID-related restrictions). And Disney usually has a bigger film in release this month that benefits a lot, but they and theaters (in each their own ways) dumbed Raya which would have been it. So this Spring Break is missing two big annual performers.

Films to watch that'll be benefitting the most: Demon Slayer should be up several hundred percent (I'm guessing two or three hundred percent perhaps, but just a guess) each day; Tom & Jerry will probably be up one or two hundred percent; Flower Bouquet perhaps up in the 50% range or so (but will need to see its Monday first given its seating/showtime loss); Pretty Cure may be minimally up like 5/10% if it does manage any increases (very frontloaded series). Evangelion should also do well this week, but I wouldn't expect any increases versus last week, but good holds (say... 15/20%) are likely.

Thursday will presumably be the biggest day over Spring Break this year since it's the first of the month (discount day) happening over a holiday period.

DS will finish #4 (or #5 ?) this Monday. Again, I was expecting more but it's ok.

It may be fourth in admissions (though probably third), but it's easily third in revenue.

Just curious: What are you expecting? Because we're seeing week-on-week increases versus last week way over 100%, and we're dealing with the biggest numbers ever at this stage not just in Japan, but in the entire world. Its Saturday and Sunday (Days 163 and 164) only have two comparisons at the worldwide box office, E.T. and Titanic in the U.S. (and it's doing bigger numbers than Titanic), and now its 165th day in release will be comfortably higher than both of them as should several of its other days this week.

So there's not even a "more" that it could be beating anywhere, ever, in recorded box office history on planet Earth.

There was a redacted report that John Carter grossed the equivalent of $5.5 trillion dollar on Mars in cryptocurrency, so its 24th week dailies were probably higher than Demon Slayer's at the Milky Way Galaxy box office.

But seriously, expecting more for Demon Slayer right now when there really is no "more" from anywhere else worldwide in history is just a matter of perception and expectations being very misplaced.

I'm guessing the announcement of the 1 million gifts last week is what caused it. Given the film has broken all precedent, rather creating precedent on its own really, selling another 1 million admissions this week could have been possible. I even said it could and maybe hyped it up too much on here?

But just because it's not going to sell another 1 million tickets this week (note: this week, it'll sell another 1 million over its run for sure) doesn't mean it could be doing more. It wasn't the bar of success, especially not when its dailies right now are bigger than any film, again, at the worldwide box office with only E.T. in the U.S. as its sole competitor at this stage of its release.

If anyone is expecting more or is somehow disappointed right now, well, you're going to be disappointed by it for the remainder of its run and I guess for anything else in the future too. Weird thing to be for the biggest film ever in Japan, by an unfathomable margin, that has been having weekly grosses the highest on record in the market, and is even beating everything on a worldwide scale now.

Indeed. I'm guessing expectations were that it will magically do what it did with past giveaways but that's just not possible at this point in its run. I think not selling all giveaways is good for movie's legs in next few weeks even with competition from Conan.

I don't know I was expecting it to increase 300% or 400% like you think yesterday. But obviously 150% remains huge at this stage, I never said the opposite but sky is the limit for demon slayer.

Okay, so seems to be a case of me overpredicting and being more optimistic than usual. (I tend to be conservative with predictions). I set the bar too high last week, just remember that this is completely new territory and any predictions were largely just guess work. As since day one of its release, this film is in a league of its own and setting the precedent for various situations itself, not following any sort of past pattern or expectations.

It broke all the non-longevity related records (like weeks in the top 10, etc.) all the way back in December. Since December 29th, everything else is literally just more and can't be expected to really do any specific amount. And despite that, its weekly earnings over the past month have continued to set weekly records at this stage of its release. And not only that, it's now back to breaking weekend records themselves. And even further, its dailies have now surpassed the dailies of any other film in the world at the same point of their releases.

It's setting new world records for biggest 24th and very likely 25th weeks (and dailies associated with those weeks) of release. So, definitely don't think that just because it didn't reach what I was predicting for this past weekend or week to mean it's not doing anything less amazing.

I suppose Star Wars will be there along with ET. May be Jaws too and other big grossers of that Era. We have ET daily numbers but not for the others. There are weekly numbers though. ET did $4.5M in Week 25 while Star Wars did $4.1M.

Those films were playing over 1000 theaters with 200M population with $2-3 ticket prices, while DS is playing on just 390 theaters with 120M population and $14 prices so its not nearly as good.

In terms of pure admits, there will be quite many Indian films doing bigger numbers. HAHK is one such film, released in 1994, it was doing 500k admits daily in its Week 25 on some 200 theaters. Revenue wise it wont be that big however due to cheap tickets.

This is no attempt to take anything away from Demon Slayer. Its a special film and done as well as it could have done. Just to put things in perspective.

Corpse, are there any big releases besides the Conan movie in the upcoming weeks or will Golden Week be unusually empty again this year due to Covid?

Thank you!

I'm going to post the April Release Schedule in the next day or two, but the month looks pretty good. Detective Conan, as you mentioned, is going to be huge and is probably going to be the biggest film of 2021 unless something unexpected surprises and/or if the Jujutsu Kaisen prequel makes 2021 (which could challenge it).

In addition to it, there's the Part 1 release of the final Rurouni Kenshin film opening on April 23rd. It'll be big, likely aiming for ¥5 billion. Warner Bros. is also re-releasing the previous three films with a one-week engagement ahead of the finale release. This is Warner Bros.'s biggest franchise in the market since Harry Potter.

The month also has other notable releases, such as Signal: The Movie (film continuing where the TV drama ended off), the latest Crayon Shin-chan, and even though I'm assuming it'll get delayed, Black Widow is still on the schedule. But Disney recently delayed it again in the U.S., so I'd expect them to do the same in Japan since they appear to have zero interest in releasing their films internationally first. A delay would be unfortunate (and unnecessary) though because it's already been listed at a huge 370 locations. If they delay it to July, and keep it as a same-day release on Disney+, chances are theaters aren't going to play it in response and it'll end up as another dump like Raya and the Last Dragon.

10 (05) ¥x49,679,800 ($453,000), -47%, ¥622,446,700 ($5.7 million), Brave: Gunjyo Senki (Toho) WK3


Evangelion 3.0+1.0: Thrice Upon a Time holds strong in first place for a third-consecutive weekend, and achieved the 10th highest three-week total ever in the process. The series finale sold 329,999 admissions in its third outing, and has now sold a very impressive 3,961,480 admissions after 21 days in release. Spring Break is already being kind to it, so we should expect a finish perhaps near ¥9 billion ($80/85 million) which will certainly be among the biggest films of the year (likely top 3 position).

Monster Hunter enjoyed a solid debut in second place, selling 162,000 admissions over the weekend on 472 screens, and sold 230,872 admissions over its first three-days of release. Given the size of the fanbase, several million strong, this opening isn't anything to write home about, but it's a pretty good start and actually the biggest opening weekend it's had worldwide. It's also the biggest opening weekend for a Hollywood film since Tenet way back in September. And furthermore... add this to the ever-growing list of Milla Jovovich hits in Japan, as the market is already its highest grossing international market after just three days, giving Jovovich 9 films now with Japan as its best intl. market.

Demon Slayer: Mugen Train took big advantage of its Dolby Cinema expansion and fifth giveaway event, rising back into the Top 3 in its 24th week of release. Its 24th weekend also broke the 24th weekend record by 68%. The final countdown to ¥40 billion has begun now that it's less than ¥1 billion away, and with Spring Break this week and its sixth (and presumably final) giveaway event starting on April 3rd, it should get there a lot sooner than originally expected.

Kiba: The Fangs of Fiction was a nice surprise over the weekend. it sold 88,000 admissions over the weekend frame across 343 screens, and sold 119,000 admissions over its first three-days of release. Reaching ¥1 billion (~$10 million) will be a challenge, but this is a good enough start to get it there if it develops legs just a bit above average. And the box office can always use more of these mid-level sort of performers.

Girls und Panzer the Finale - Part 3 remains an estimate. I'll update it when/if its actual figures come in. I'm pretty sure its 3-day numbers will be released, and if the estimate is close, it'll have more or less earned the same amount as its predecessors did over their first 2-days. Had this film opened on Saturday like its predecessors, its 3-day likely would have been very close to the 2-day given how fanbase-driven the series is.

Also, interestingly, Loved Like a Flower Bouquet remains an estimate. I'm not really sure why it wasn't included in the initial reporting this morning, as it's a wide holdover still in the top 10, but I'll update it when it becomes available.
