"Frozen" Breaks Box Office Records of "Princess Mononoke" and "Howl's Moving Castle" in Japan

It will reach 20 billion yen mark by the end of this week

In the most recent Japanese weekend movie ranking (May 24-25), Frozen still held the first place for the five-straight week, 10 times in total since its opening on March 14. It has earned 19,844,395,900 yen (about US$194,700,000) with 15,588,545 tickets sales, and has become the 4th most grossing film in the Japanese box office history, easily surpassing the two highly acclaimed Hayao Miyazaki films: previous 5th Princess Mononoke (1997/19.3 billion yen) and 4th Howl's Moving Castle (2004/19.6 billion).

 

It will definitely reach the 20 billion yen mark and will catch the 3rd grossing film Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (2011/20.3 billion) by the end of this week. Then the last two targets for Frozen are James Cameron's Titanic (1998/26.2 billion) in 2nd and Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away (2001/30.4 billion) in 1st. Will Frozen reach the untouchable records?
