Japan Box Office: "Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer" Scores Record-Breaking Opening Weekend

The 26th "Crayon Shin-chan" film follows in 2nd, "Pacific Rim Uprising" ranks a so-so 4th

Once again, the Detective Conan anime franchise has enjoyed amazing box office success in Japan. Its 22nd feature film Zero no Shikkounin/Zero the Enforcer opened in 360 theaters on Friday, then earned an impressive 1.296 billion yen on 1.012 million admissions from its first Saturday and Sunday, easily topping Japan's weekend box office and also surpassing the previous opening week record of 1.287 billion yen marked by last year's Kara Kurenai no Love Letter/The Crimson Love Letter. The 22nd film's three-day box office total is 1.67 billion yen from the 1.289 million ticket sales.


The 21st film The Crimson Love Letter made 6.87 billion yen from its total domestic run and became not only the top-grossing title in the Detective Conan film series, but also the top-grossing Japanese film of 2017. If the strong momentum of Zero the Enforcer continues, it is expected to renew the franchise's box office record for six consecutive years.
