Japan Box Office: Star☆Twinkle PreCure Debuts at #3 with Modest 160 Million Yen

"Weathering With You" finally disappeared from top 10, but surpassing "The Last Samurai"


Last weekend's only new anime film, Eiga Star☆Twinkle PreCure Hoshi no Uta ni Omoi wo Komete (Star☆Twinkle PreCure The Movie: Putting Thought into the Star Song) was released 231 theaters in Japan on October 19 and ranked third with a modest 160 million yen on 141,000 admissions in its debut weekend.


The 27th PreCure film's opening weekend gross was 83% of that of the previous non-crossover film Kirakira PreCure a la Mode the Movie: Crisply! The Memory of Mille-feuille! in October 2017, and 64.4% of the franchise's previous 26th film PreCure Miracle Universe in March 2019. Judging from its opening weekend reception, the film is expected to end its domestic run with around 500-600 million yen.


Japan in realty has been hit by strong typhoons in recent several weeks. In its 14th weekend of release, Makoto Shinkai's Tenki no Ko/Weathering With You, which includes many scenes with heavy rains, finally disappeared from Japan's weekend box office top 10. But it has earned a huge 13.73 billion yen in Japan, becoming the 12th top-grossing film at the Japanese box office of all-time, surpassing The Last Samurai (2003)'s 13.7 billion yen.
