Japan Box Office: Aircraft Carrier Ibuki Debuts at 2nd with Modest 246 Million Yen

"PROMARE" ranks No.1 in Pia's first day satisfaction ranking


The live-action film based on Kaiji Kawaguchi (Silent Service, Zipang)'s latest military manga Kubo Ibuki

(Aircraft Carrier Ibuki) was released in 331 theaters across Japan on May 24, 2019, then ranked second

with a modest 246 million yen from the 194,000 ticket sales in its opening weekend. Its three-day gross 

from Friday through Sunday was 332 million yen, and it is expected to end its domestic run around 1.5

billion yen. 


Meanwhile,  the live-action film adaptation of Yasuhisa Hara's historical adventure manga Kingdom dropped

to fifth to the previous weekend's third. But it has earned an impressive 4.8 billion yen from its six-week

run and has already become the top-grossing Japanese live-action film of this year so far, surpassing Tonde

Saitama with 3.68 billion yen. 



The 23rd Detective Conan feature film Konjou no Fist/The Fist of Blue Sapphire ranked sixth in its seventh

weekend. Adding 200 million yen, its total domestic gross has reached 8.5 billion yen, but it seems unlikely

to surpass the anime film series's current box office record of 9.18 billion yen marked by Zero The Enforcer

last year.


The weekend's new anime film, PROMARE was released in 200 theaters  and ranked eighth in the box office.

On the other hand, it ranked No.1 in Pia's first day satisfaction ranking with a very good 92.9 rating.
