Distrib Sony Pictures Entertainment Japan made $190 million at the box office in the first 11 months of the year, an all-time company record that beat its 2007 high of $176 million.The result makes SPEJ the top earner among foreign distribs in Japan. The figure was boosted by the release of Michael Jackson docu “This Is It,” which finished with $48 million. With sci-fi smash “2012” recording $33 million since its Dec. 5 bow, SPEJ looks likely to finish the year north of the ¥20 billion ($217 million) milestone.
