“64: Part 2,” the second part of a duology about a cop’s lone crusade to solve a 1989 kidnapping and murder case, topped the Japanese box office for the weekend of June 11-12.

Based on a bestselling 2012 novel by Hideo Yokoyama and directed by former adult film maestro Takahisa Zeze, “64: Part 2” debuted on 321 screens with Toho distributing. It earned $3.3 million from 283,000 admissions in its first two days. This was a 37% improvement on the opening of the first part and the film is on track to finish near the $20 million mark. The total box office of both parts is predicted to be $33 million.

Also bowing at the weekend, at number eight, was Jodie Foster’s thriller “Money Monster.” Opening on 182 screens with Sony distributing, the film recorded $565,000 on 45,700 admissions. The outlook is for a $3 million finish.

Number two “Zootopia” drove its cumulative total to $61 million and the Disney hit is now forecast to end its Japan run with $66 million.
