Japan Box Office: 23rd Conan Film Beats Avengers: Endgame, Detective Pikachu

"Kingdom" live-action film has crossed the 3.5 billion yen mark

 

According to the latest box office report from Japan, the 23rd Detective Conan feature film Konjou no Fist/The

Fist of Blue Sapphire has still kept its steady hold during the Golden Week holiday, even taking back the No.1

slot from the worldwide mega hit film Avengers: Endgame.

 

During May 4 and 5, the last weekend of the 10-day long Golden Week, Konjou no Fist earned an impressive

587 million yen from the 448,000 ticket sales and ranked No.1 again in its fourth week of release. The 110-

minute film has grossed a huge 7.52 billion yen on 5.91 million admissions, already becoming the top-grossing

Japanese film of this year so far and the second top-grossing film in the Conan anime franchise only behind

last year's 22nd film Zero the Enforcer with 9.18 billion yen.

 

Avengers: Endgame was the box office winner in its first weekend of release in Japan, April 27-28, with a 

solid 962 million yen. But its box office performance showed a huge 45% drop in its second weekend, given

up its No.1 position to Conan only after one week.
