Japanese Box Office: JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 Holds No. 1 for Five Consecutive Weeks


The momentum shows no signs of slowing down at this time. JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 earned 336 million yen (US$2.93 million) from 213,000 admissions in its ninth weekend and remained No. 1 at the Japanese weekend box office for five consecutive weeks.

Results from the recent weekend show that box office revenue and ticket sales were up more than 30% from the previous weekend. One of the reasons for this is the limited-edition commemorative book that has been distributed to a total of 500,000 people nationwide since February 19, which contains spoiler-filled interviews with the voice cast members and cartoons. unreleased key animations.

The film’s total domestic gross reached 11.62 billion yen (US$101 million) from 8.34 million admissions, and is expected to exceed Star Wars: The Force Awakens (11.63 billion yen) will soon become the 26th highest-grossing film of all time in Japan.

The live-action film adaptation from Toshio Sako’s game-themed manga Usogi (The eater of lies), directed by Hideo Nakta (the Ring series), fell to tenth place in its second weekend after fifth in its opening weekend. He should disappear from the top 10 next weekend.

Fruit basket -prelude-a compilation film from the television series Fruit basket based on Natsuki Takaya’s popular shoujo manga, was released in 25 theaters on February 18 and then earned 33 million yen (US$287,650) from 20,000 admissions on its first Saturday and Sunday. Due to its small theatrical count, the film which also includes a newly written after-story episode did not appear in the top 10 overall at the box office, but ranked No. 1 in Filmarks Day One Satisfaction Ranking with an average rating of 4.24/5.00 based on 142 reviews.

Atsuko Ishizuka (A place beyond the universe)-directed an original animated feature film Goodbye DonGlees, which was released in 217 theaters on February 18, also failed to crack the top 10 in its opening weekend. It placed fifth and received an average rating of 3.59/5.00 based on 482 reviews on Filmarks Day One Satisfaction Ranking.
