Japan Box Office: My Hero Academia Film Drops to 7th Place in Its 2nd Weekend

Both "MIRAI" and "Pokémon the Movie" have crossed the 2 billion yen mark

After taking 4th place in its debut weekend, My Hero Academia The Movie: The Two Heroes drops to 7th place in its second weekend. It has been confirmed that the all-new feature film earned 500 million yen in its first three-day run, which was a massive 282% of that of Souta Fukushi-starring Bleach, the most recent live-action film adaptation of an internationally popular Shonen Jump manga title.


While its current total gross for My Hero Academia is unknown, it seems more frond-loaded than expected. The first one million moviegoers of the film receive a bonus book that includes a nine-page manga episode "No.0 ALL MIGHT: RISING" newly-drawn by the original manga author Kohei Horikoshi himself. The bonus might not be enough to sustain the audience's interest in its second week? We'll update when we receive more actual box office numbers. 


Meanwhile, Mamoru Hosoda's new original anime feature Mirai no Mirai (Mirai of The Future)/MIRAI

ranks 6th in its 4th weekend and has crossed the 2 billion yen mark. And the 21st Pokémon film Pokémon

the Movie: The Power of Us in 9th place has made 2.3 billion yen on 2.04 million admissions by its 5th
