Japan Box Office Report – March 16th/17th

(02) 'Platina Data' / (01) 'Doraemon' / (03) 'Precure All Stars New Stage 2'
After the recent influx of somewhat intriguing Western movies that dominated the Japanese box office charts, it’s finally the first time this year that the top 3 of the box office chart is made up of Japanese movies only.

The top 3 is led by ‘Doraemon‘ which defended its first place from the previous weekend. It was followed by the latest Higashino Keigo adaptation ‘Platina Data‘ that experienced great hype thanks to Arashi’s popularity. The most followers on Twitter for a Japanese movie ever, a record-selling theme song by Arashi, and the biggest scale in terms of opening day stage greeting with over 60,000 attendees.

Third place opened another movie of a popular anime series – ‘Eiga Precure All Stars New Stage 2: Kokoro no Tomodachi‘. It slightly surpassed the opening weekend of its direct prequel.

Other new movies in the top 10 include ‘Himawari to Koinu no 7-kakan‘ – starring Sakai Masato – and the belated Japanese release of ‘Cloud Atlas‘.

Don’t forget to check out the trailers of all the new Japanese movies below the box office chart!
