‘Cape Nostalgia’ tops Japan B.O.

Cape Nostalgia

TOKYO – Veteran star Sayuri Yoshinaga proved her still-potent B.O. clout as “Cape Nostalgia,” a drama she produced and headlines, topped the Japanese charts in its first weekend on release, Oct. 11-12.

Opening on 286 screens, Yoshinaga’s 118th feature film scored $1.65 million on 152,000 admissions. Including the Monday holiday, its three-day total was $2.19 million. 

Bowing at number two on 179 screens was teen romance “Kinkyori Renai” (Close Range Love), which earned $1.6 million on 135,181 admissions.

Meanwhile “Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends,” the second of a two-part period swashbuckler produced and released by Warner Entertainment Japan, slipped to third place, while driving its cume to $34.5 million and 2.94 million admissions. 

None of the three foreign pics in the top ten chart are new, with “Jersey Boys” (#9) in its third week, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” (#7) in its fourth; and “Guardians of the Galaxy” (#10), fifth week on release.
