Japan Box Office: "Detective Conan" Sells More Tickets than "Avengers: Infinity War" Even in Its Third Weekend

The 26th "Crayon Shin-chan" film surpasses the one billion yen mark

Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer is ruling Japan's box office even in its third weekend. The 22nd Conan feature film sold an impressive 453,000 tickets in the weekend of April 28-29, which was 16,000 more than Avengers: Infinity War did in its opening weekend in Japan. 


After breaking the franchise's opening weekend record, Detective Conan: Zero the Enforcer has collected 4.8 billion yen on 3.74 million admissions from its three-week domestic run. It has already become the third top-grossing film in the franchise, behind only the 21st film Crimson Love Letter (2017/6.87 billion yen) and the 20th film Pure Black Nightmare (2016/6.33 billion).


Despite its various promotional efforts, including the one collaborating with the My Hero Academia characters, Walt Disney's third Avengers flick Avengers: Infinity War was not able to make much impact in Japan. The latest superhero assemble film earned a bit disappointing 672 million yen from

the 437,000 tickets sales in its opening weekend, which was 16.4% down from that of Avengers: Age

of Ultron in 2015.
