Japan Box Office: "Gintama" Tops 3 Billion Yen in 30 Days

"JoJo's Bizarre Adventure" super-quickly disappeared from the top 10

Despite being in its 5th weekend, the live-action film adaptation of Hideaki Sorachi's action comedy manga Gintama still ranked 6th, even two positions up from the previous weekend. The Yuichi Fukuda (Hentai Kamen)-directed film has earned an impressive 3,115,229,700 yen on 2,361,321 admissions in 31 days since its release on July 14, and also became the first live-action Japanese film to cross the three billion yen mark in 2017.


In addition to its home country, the film has already received wide release in Taiwan, Singapore, and Vietnam, and is scheduled to be released in Hong Kong this weekend, then will expand to other Asian countries, including Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia.



Meanwhile, Takashi Miike's box-office disappointment JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Diamond Is Unbreakable

Chapter I super-quickly disappeared from the top 10 in its second weekend of release, dropping from the

debut weekend's 5th to 11th. From this dismal failure, we probably can't expect to see "Chapter II."
