Japan Box Office: Dragon Ball Super Delivers 1.05 Billion Yen Debut

Latest "Yo-kai Watch" film ranks 4th with soft 251 million yen in its opening weekend


Toei Animation's highly anticipated 20th Dragon Ball film, Dragon Ball Super: Broly topped its debut

weekend box office, making 813 million yen from the 639,000 ticket sales in its first Saturday and

Sunday in Japan, which was 84.6% of the opening weekend gross of the franchise's previous 19th

film Resurrection 'F' released on the Saturday of April 18, 2015.


The 100-minute film was released in 361 theaters with 467 screens across Japan on the Friday of

December 14. Adding its opening day gross on Friday, the film's three-day box office total was actually

1,050,805,000 yen (824,205 admissions). It also ranked No.1 in Pia's first day satisfaction ranking

with approval rating of 92.7%. Judging from its opening weekend result and good word of mouth,

Dragon Ball Super: Broly has a high possibility to become the most successful film in the 32-year-old

anime franchise. 


Meanwhile, Yo-kai Watch: Forever Friends, the fifth feature film in the Yo-kai Watch anime franchise,

ranked fourth with a disappointing 251 million yen in its opening weekend, which was only 62.9% of

that of the previous fourth film Shadowside: Oni-ou no Fukkatsu in December 2017.
