The Avengers opens #1 in Japan


boxoffice_0821



‘The Avengers’ finally opened in Japan and claimed first place by a wide margin.

This weekend was all about the belated start of ‘Marvel’s The Avengers‘ in Japan and even though the Japanese were forced to watch it a couple of months after the rest of the world, it catapulted right onto to the top of the box office chart. Over the weekend it grossed 500,932,250 Yen (6,306,586 USD) and attracted 326,109 people, which made it the most successful start of any American summer blockbuster in Japan this year. However, ‘The Avengers’ actually opened earlier on Tuesday and its cumulative result sounds even sweeter with a revenue of 1,386,002,650 Yen (17,449,357 USD) and 940,171 viewers in just six days.

The Amazing Spider-Man‘ is still struggling to reach the 3 billion Yen (38 million USD) mark and ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ has yet to crack 2 billion Yen (25 million USD), but it looks like ‘The Avengers’ will go straight for 5 billion Yen (63 million USD).
