Top Japanese Films at the Box Office: 2012

The Motion Picture Producers Association of Japan released the list of top 39 Japanese films for 2012, all of which earned 1 billion yen (about US$10.8 million) or more. Several of these films would list higher if their 2013 box office totals were included. If that were the case, One Piece Film Z, which opened on December 15, would be listed as at least the #2 film.
