Japan Box Office: JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 Holds Top Spot for Three Consecutive Weeks

"The Deer King" makes a disappointing 7th place debut



Four new films entered the top 10 last weekend, but the stronghold of JUJUTSU KAISEN 0 could not be broken. In its seventh weekend, the film earned an impressive 419 million yen (3.64 million USD) on 263,000 admissions, staying on the No.1 spot for three consecutive weekends for the first time.


The third round of bonus item for theatergoers and the start of the 4D and Dolby Cinema screenings from February 5 resulted a 156 percent increase in attendance and a 176 percent increase in revenue compared to the previous weekend. The 105-minute film stayed on No.1 for the first two weekends of its release, then stayed at No.2 for two weekends, and has returned to No.1 again for the recent three weekends.
