Japan Box Office: Detective Pikachu Leads Weekend, While Detective Conan Nears 8 Billion Yen

"Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress" ranks No.1 in Pia's first day satisfaction ranking


In its second weekend of release in Japan, Pokemon Detective Pikachu, the live-action film adaptation of the

2016 video game of the same name, jumped up to the top spot in the ticket sales ranking from third in its

opening weekend, with 312 million yen from the 209,000 tickets sales. Its total gross in the character's origin

country has reached 1.46 billion yen, which was 22% of the film's opening weekend gross in the U.S.


Avengers: Endgame ranked second in the ticket sales ranking with 209,000 tickets, but took No.1 place in

the revenue ranking with 316 million yen. Its total gross in Japan is now 4.75 billion yen, which is about 6%

of its current box office revenue in the U.S.  


Meanwhile, the 23rd Detective Conan feature film Konjou no Fist/The Fist of Blue Sapphire dropped to third

from the top spot last week with 250 million yen, bringing its total to a massive 7.95 billion yen. And the live-

action film adaptation of Yasuhisa Hara's historical adventure manga Kingdom is confirmed to have earned

4 billion yen.


Despite of its limited release in 28 theaters, Koutetsujo no Kabaneri/Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress anime

franchise's medium-length sequel film Unato Kessen/The Battle of Unato made an impressive tenth place
